Settling in...

I wish I could name this post "settled in," however, after what seemed like thousands of boxes (actually the highest number I could find was in the two hundreds), we still don't have them all unpacked. I'm not even sure I want to unpack the rest of them because we can't take anything else out to the trash bin so I now have an ever-growing stack of flat boxes in our entry way. If you know me at all, you know that I don't do well in chaos. This is chaos. We are also still waiting on a couple of pieces of furniture so I can't unpack the boxes that I need those for first. One piece we are waiting on is actually here; I am repainting a wardrobe for P's room that our neighbors, Bryan and Cate were nice enough to give us before we moved. Unfortunately, because of all of the rain, painting a large piece of furniture takes time...lots of time...

The good news is that I found bedding to go with P's new wardrobe...I was going to go with something different, but the paint is leaning more toward royal blue instead of navy so I decided to go with this...

The hardest part about unpacking is trying to make sure that Parker is getting enough time to play and is having fun. I feel terrible when he spends too much time just playing by himself. So, to make up for it, I decided to take him to the pool today. It was raining, but I promised to take him to the pool. So, we went for a 1.5 mile jog and finally made it there only that we picked the one day that closed early. We got there 25 minutes before the pool closed, but I had promised Parker so I paid my 4.35 pounds and we changed and went swimming for 15 minutes. I did, however, keep my promise so I didn't feel too bad. I'm pretty sure it took us longer to shower and dress than it did to swim, but at least we got to swim.

I have to show you how Parker travelled today.
Yes, I promise that it is July in England too...we miss summer...

No, this is not a picture of P suffocating. Because it rains all the time, everyone uses these stroller covers. We call it Parker's "bubble." He rather likes his bubble and as you can tell by the sleeping baby, it definitely keeps the rain off of the bug.

Just had to throw in this final picture of the random swan and her babies. I love living by water (I know, I am so easy to please)!

Enjoy London's summer. I guarantee you it beats the 104 we are going to have today or the 111 we had over the weekend. Sounds like everything is coming together for you. Enjoy!

Love the bedding for Parker! So cute.

I was curious, do people in London jog a lot with their strollers?
