House hunting and North Shore!

Thursday night we were all feeling a little bit crowded in our hotel room, and lil' man was feeling much better ~ so we headed out to view some houses around the area for rent. We also drove up to the military reservation about 10 miles north of here to check out base housing that will be available next week. That's where Bryan will be working at for the next few weeks as he in-processes. We were a little disappointed by what we saw, but I hope that the old rule "don't judge a book by it's cover" comes true next week when we tour the inside of the housing. The housing out there just isn't near as nice as what's here on Schofield, but the houses here are new and the waiting list is lo-ooong. So, after a little bit of a let-down, we ventured out just another few miles north and hit the North Shore! This was one of our most favorite spots when we came here on our honeymoon ~ it's more of a park-like setting instead of the commercialized beaches here. We ended up just strolling along right around sunset ~ so beautiful! Noah wasn't sure about the sand at first, but then he warmed up to it and we couldn't hardly pry him away from the water. It was so cute! We stayed about an hour, then we saw a fun little hole in the wall diner right on the water, so we headed over for a sunset dinner, complete with tiki torches and all :) It was just what we needed, and we all headed back to the hotel feelin' pretty relaxed!

Today we went to look at a townhouse about 20 miles from here, but that's a drive in this traffic. It's very nice, but the drive is aggravating. Please just pray for patience for us as we try to figure out what's better: nicer housing further away, or not so nice housing right here! Grrr...on a good note though we are heading over to Bryan's sponsor's house tonight to watch the fight and hang out ~ he's the Sgt. who picked us up from the airport and has shown us around this week. He seems very nice, and I'm anxious to meet his family ~ maybe I'll make a friend!? I hope they like us! :) He did say they also have a 2 year old curly headed lil' man....hmmm...... :)

Hope you all have a great weekend ~ keep in touch, either with comments here or by phone or email! We love you and miss you all! :) xoxo, Jen
