we have a car! it's a mitsubishi kuda (which means horse). we're super excited! we're thankful that we got a quality car but we're most excited to be able to go places as a family and FINALLY explore our new city together. i have dreams of going on picnics, going to the mall together (which would have been a nightmare had i thought of it before... but since we haven't been able to in so long i imagine it as pure bliss... i'll report on reality after it happens) and taking the kids to a playground or something. :)
and what did we do to celebrate? we went to pizza hut! :) we went with some friends who also bought a car this week (the husband basically found and bargained for our car too) and one of our language teachers and her family. it was fun to hang out with them outside of school. ps. i never would have eaten pizza from pizza hut in boston... but here, it's a special treat! :)
and here's bubs doing one of his favorite things.... squeezing an empty bottle. he's very pleased with himself when he can make things happen by myself, like noises from a bottle.
