I'm loving Madrid...

So I'm totally loving Madrid!! If they spoke English here instead of Spanish or if I spoke Spanish this would be the perfect place to live. I'm really loving it. Luckily, I'm going to start taking Spanish lessons soon.

The family we met that just moved here from the states is so cool. Angola, the mom, is so awesome. She's got so much energy and she loves to play all day. We go nonstop. It's great! I'm so excited that we've met such a great family and so fast. It's great for the kids too. Isaac and Niko have a ton of fun together and Stella and Eloise are only 10 days apart and have all the same mannerisms. I think they'll grow up to be great friends. And for now they have fun playing with their baby dolls.

We went to an expat play group today. It was fun. We were able to meet a lot of different people. I can't believe how many people move all over the world. It will be fun to see all the different traditions and holidays they celebrate. You know me any holiday is a good holiday!! They meet together every Wednesday and Friday. So that should help us stay busy.

One last comment. Drew got his blackberry today. So I now have an official lawyer husband. So if you need to get a hold of us you can always email Drew and he'll get a little buzz immediately.

We bought a new digital camera for Mother's Day/Graduation. On the recommendation of the Olsen's we got a Casio Exilim EX-S600. It has very quick shutter speed which is great for taking pictures of the kids, and it even takes really good video, all in a very compact package.
