Our New City

We went for a nice walk on the Olentangy River Trail a few weeks back (blog posts are majorly back-logged right now). Urban green spaces hold a certain magic for me, and this trail is just that. We walked the trail and also walked into the city, exploring our new home by foot, covering probably around 6 miles...a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.

Cooper calls this the pirate ship

So clean and pristine

Did you ever know Columbus, Ohio was so pretty?

Pretty cool to see a heron in the middle of the city.

Entering Lego Land

Today we took Cooper to the Lego store and purchased his first 'real' Legos. Tonight he was feeling a little "buildy". (Side note....Cooper is the master of turning anything into an adjective. He often feelings "watchy" when he wants to watch TV. He even felt "looky aty" when he wanted to look at the games at the Ohio State Fair) Coop and Erik worked diligently on building his new garbage truck.

I love how Cooper presses his little self into Erik's side.

Erik had Cooper compare what they built to the instructional pictures. Erik is such an amazing teacher...incredibly patient and the perfect combination of helpful and pushing Cooper to do things independently.

Little fingers working earnestly.

So many hours of fun to come!!!!
