|Jacob definitely needs a haircut|
We are finally getting settled in here in our new apartment in Walnut Creek. So far we really like it here. I'm not going to lie, we had a rough start upon arriving here. It was very stressful trying to find an apartment, a new car, an office for Kevin, and buying all new furniture (not to mention it was stressful spending all that money!). I thought that stuff would be fun to do, but Jacob was in rare form during this time. He was not a happy camper, and he would have meltdowns on every shopping tip. I also think he
was getting some new teeth, so that didn't help. So there were just a lot of stressful things going on. But luckily, we were close to Kevin's family, and they helped us out a ton. Kevin's sister Tara took Jacob for the day so we could go car shopping, so that was a huge help to us! He loves his aunt Tara too:) They went to uncle Justin and Aunt Christina's house and Jacob rode a horse!
|Jacob also needs new clothes--he's busting out of these!|

We were also there for the monthly family birthday dinner. It was so fun to watch Jacob with all his cousins. He loves being around kids.
Now that we live in California we are also closer to our friends Jon and Julie. They came over to visit one day and we played the sports game on kinect. Jacob wanted to be part of the action too.
Jacob and I have been trying to stay busy, finding fun things to do in Walnut creek. Our new ward has a playgroup that meets every Wednesday, and last Wednesday we all met at a cute little pumpkin farm. It was perfect for a little guy like Jacob. His favorite things were the playhouse, the hay tunnel, and the chickens.

|Jacob got to pick out his own little baby pumpkin. He loved it so much he wanted |
to take a nap with it.

Jacob is also discovery the fun of being in a shopping cart! At first he hated them, but now he enjoys them. He especially loved this one at Kohl's because he was lower to the ground and in the front.
Here is a video of Jacob harassing the chickens at the pumpkin farm:)
So far, life in California is great!
