Okay.. I moved! Whew! that was intense. Kids home from school (I picked the last day of school to move… what was I thinking???) well, I made it.

Lots of unpacking to do but we all love the new house and the new neighborhood. I actually think I may have found “Charleston in LA”. I love it. Horses, friendly neighbors, trails…. the kids get to scooter or ride bikes (sounds normal but lots of areas in LA you can’t do that because of hills or busy streets…)

Hanging in the new ‘hood: “start of summer” pool party: cotton candy, snow cones, hot dog on a stick… Fun!

And… A block from our house….

And then these two monkeys… still as sweet as ever! Makes me wish I had a sibling! She’s the best big sis (second mommy) ever! And he adores her. I love their relationship ? I hope she always climbs in his “crib” and reads him stories.

Remember this (from my first PEOPLE blog). Still best buddies!
