In April, we moved from our old house in Monticello to our new house in Arden Hills. It was big adventure for me. I was a very good helper.
There's the big truck, Unkie Chad!
The big truck was my favorite part of moving. Mr. Jeromy even let me sit in the driver's seat.
Our new house is pretty great, but my favorite part of our new house is the sliding door to the deck. I am SO good at opening and closing it.
Mommy said that since we moved, we are really close to everything! She got a few free ride passes from school to Nickelodeon Universe Amusement Park, so we visited the Mall of America as a family. I didn't even fall asleep on the way there like I used to when we lived in Monticello.
I loved riding the rides! I saw a few big trucks like Mr. Jeromy drove when we moved into our new house, except they were MY size. They were my favorite.
I also started to explore my new neighborhood, where there are lots of animals. Mommy, Daddy, and I have seen squirrels, ducks, geese, turtles, and tatterpillers..um..caterpillers near our house. Here I am, making friends with the wildlife.
Right after we moved, we flew in a big airplane to a strange place called California to see my uncle Aaron. Here we are enjoying some graham crackers together. I think Uncle Aaron may need a few pointers..
Uncle Aaron lives near a place called Hollywood, so sometimes movie stars are around his house. We were just driving down the street, and we saw this strange looking car, so we stopped to take a picture.
Daddy explained to me that the people that drive this car get rid of scary things like ghosts. They call them Ghostbusters, and apparently anyone who grew up in the 1980s knows who they are- I guess they made a movie about them. After we saw this car, we went into a building nearby, and met a REAL LIVE movie star- His name was Dan Akroyd. I guess he was one of the Ghostbusters. Thanks for keeping Uncle Aaron's neighborhood ghost-free, Mr. Akroyd!
We had a great time in California, and spent lots of time with Uncle Aaron and Mommy's cousin Adam. It was great to see them!
At the end of May, Mommy and Daddy's friends Jim and Kelly got married! I don't really know what that means, but my friend Elijah and his mommy and daddy came to stay with us for a whole week. It was great to play with Elijah. We recorded our first baby band album together,
had a few lunch dates together,
