The Big Move-Our First Month

We have lived here for a month now and I haven't done as good of a job documenting it as I hoped! 

Here's how we spent our first month:

We've tried lots of new, local places like Bull City Brewery, Parker and Otis, Highway 55 Burgers and Fries, Biscuitville, Monuts Donuts, Bruegger's Bagels, Elevation Burger, and Mellow Mushroom (I'm actually not sure that these are all "local" places, but they are all new to us). 
We've tried to figure out our way around...the roads are curvy here and not in a nice grid like in Oklahoma so that has been an adjustment. Some of us (Jared) can get around pretty well while some of us (me) refuse to leave the driveway without the GPS. 
We had a sick little baby so we experienced the pediatrician's office and the local pharmacy. 
We've done some fun family activities like Monkey Joe's where Paxton jumped and climbed in various moon bounces until he literally couldn't even walk. We went to the Observation Deck at the airport and watched airplanes and Paxton played on the playground. 
We have experienced the roller coaster winter here and played outside in the sun...
...and the snow. 
We have spent a lot of time together as a family. Paxton has started to ask to have movie night every weekend. He likes to get in his jammies and get all snuggly under a blanket and watch a Disney movie (especially Frozen) and have popcorn. We found a church and have started going and the boys and I joined a mom's group so we are hoping to start spending time with other people too. So far it still feels like an adventure and we are cramming in all the exploration and eating we can handle!
