Despite the sickly humid temps though, we have managed to have some fun. We explored a New Hampshire beach, and even braved a Red Sox game on the Fourth-- and boy was it HOT! One thing I would certainly not necessarily classify as "fun" though is public transportation. When I ditched the metro in D.C. to drive to work, I thought I had bid public transportation goodbye forever. But lo and behold, public transit is how things are done around here. It sure doesn't make moving around in the heat any easier. I'll spare you the details.

these movers. They were a disaster. Our boxes arrived looking like a ton of bricks had been stored on top of them. Some were completely ripped open with the contents pouring out, others were semi-flattened. One of our boxes of dishes marked "fragile" was completely demolished. The good news though, is that most of our stuff arrived and now we are finally starting to feel at home here. I think we're going to like it just fine.
|Yes, that box is ripped open, and yes, that is how it was delivered to us.|
And now, for some cheerier news... We recently had our big ultrasound, and despite thinking it was a boy for quite some time, our ultrasound revealed our first child will instead be a little GIRL! She was a wiggly one, and has been every time we've done an ultrasound. I am not sure how that will translate outside the womb. But we are very thrilled about the revelation (the gender part... not the energy level)! In fact, this is the first thing
|Not many clear pictures of this little wiggle worm, but it's all we've got.|
And, that's our update. We're hot, getting settled, and genuinely excited for what lies ahead. In the meantime, I am going to be taking it easy over hear sipping an ice cold drink. Hope all is well with everyone else's summer too!
