Catching up with the cool kids.
I got my first smart phone! I'm pretty sure the model is a few years old, but it was only $20 and my monthly bill is only $45 for unlimited everything. So I'll take it. Thanks, Straight Talk.
We've spent this week with Jeff's mom and sister. They came all the way to Iowa from Idaho to see Ezra. And me and Jeff, too, I guess.
We got to do lots of fun things in Des Moines like the zoo, sculpture park, capitol building, and Salisbury House (Beautiful 1920s mansion built in the English Tudor style). We took a drive to Madison County, home of the famous covered bridges. They surprised us by also having a random lookout tower and a Victorian hedge maze.
Last night we took advantage of free babysitters and went on a date. We hit up the Des Moines Art Center and out for Indian food. No better equation for romance than Lichtenstein and samosas. (Seriously.)
Guys, Des Moines is really cool. Stop underestimating the awesomeness of the Midwest, America.
Jeff's mom and sister left this morning. Ezra is already mourning their loss. He has remembered how boring it is when it's just us two.

(Jeff is a really fun Instagrammer because he
hates filters and almost never uses a caption. I,
on the other hand, have probably already abused
my Instagram privileges.)
