Eat Your Heart Out, Uncle Willy!

When Will was little, one of his favorite toys of all times was his Little Tikes Cozy Coupe. Now, most of you know I have a 'ban' on plastic toys in the house, but we did make an exception for Alex's new wheels. I did warn her that she'd have to fight Uncle Willy for it when he visits.

Because all of the kids on our new street play outdoors from 3pm-6 or so, we decided to invest in another riding toy, so that Alex can hang out and be 'cool'. I found this little grasshopper at Bella Bambino, a consignment store in the River Ridge Arts Building in Burnsville. How cute are his antannae?

Speaking of the new place, it's a little like living in how I'd imagine Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. We've had three or four people stop by to welcome us in, we've even received a chocolate cake from the neighbors across the street! We've yet to set up a playdate with anyone, but we do have two little girls who are right around Alex's age in the house surrounding us! How cool it that?

Don't get me wrong, it's totally cool that you live in such a great neighborhood with wonderful friends, but don't forget about us! :)

We're so happy that your move went well. The transitions are tough at first, but get easier every day. Looking forward to seeing more posts about how your 'new life' is going!
