Church Farm

Without really knowing what or that it was 45minutes away we went to Church farm with some friends. I wish it was closer because the kids had so much fun and the way it was set up all the mom's got to sit and drink tea while the kids play. There was a big barn full of hay and hay bales for them to jump and roll in. A huge sand box, a big wooden play ground inside, crafts, pig races, pony rides and animals to stroke (pet). I can't wait to go back and same with the kids.

We did a little day trip to Cambridge. Fun place to visit but too busy for me to want to live in. I like our little village. We parked and walked around. They had a market that day so it was fun to see all the things for sale. They had a mall and we were surprised to see some familiar stores like Build a Bear and Gap. We climbed up a tall tower in St. Mary's. It gave us a good view into King's College. I must brag a little about how good our kids were. They were great the whole time. They didn't whine, cry or complain once and we walked all day.

If you look closely you can see a bee over Julie's hands. She knows not to move when a bee is around. I can't remember if I wrote before that she is allergic to bee and ants.

New house

This our new house in Fordham in Cambridgeshire. We love the little village and every neighbor we have met is really nice and friendly. This picture is of the kids when they both picked out what to wear on their own and it just happened to be patriotic. I had to take a picture of them in front of our British house.

This is the first, of many I'm sure, purchase we made here in England. The British hate antiques and their idea of an antique is something at least one hundred years old. We got these pub doors to go in our dinning room where we will put a bar/pub when we find the right one.

This is the fridge the house came with. It is a mini fridge and was too small for all that we eat daily. The Air force loans fridges and washers and dryer so we got one of them and now this one is used for drinks. No room...

Lots of room. Our American fridge.

Back yard. Two sheads thank goodness.

Back of house

More Back yard. We get a great view of it from the kitchen and living room windows.

Front of house. We have room for four cars to park which is rare.

Kitchen. There's room to put a small table in here too but our table is not small so we had to make the down stairs master bedroom into a dinning room and pub.

Upstairs, closet on right, bathroom on left, guest bedroom in front, master bedroom behind and room for desk and craft area in the middle.

Playroom/ guest room

Front door that we never use

Living room. It is about twice as big as it looks in the picture

Once we get all the boxes gone and thing put away I'll send more pictures of the house.
