Week 25: Durham, NC
Ezra is kicking like crazy; hopefully that means he's just a healthy kid. This week we stayed home to try and get a lot of things done around the house. You can see from the updated pictures below that we have most of our painting done. The wainscoting is finished and all trimmed up. We picked a nursery paint color [green], then we picked another paint color [lighter green]. The original color may not look that bad here on the computer, but in person, it was way WAY too green.
To end our weekend, we went to see the last regular season Durham Bulls game. We won 4-2 over Louisville and ended with the best record in the league. In a later post we will have to re-highlight the city of Durham. It is one of the pieces of the Triangle area that we live in (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/[& Cary]), and it has really come a long way over the past few years in becoming a fantastic place to go do stuff. If only it had the same quality of school system as our Wake County does, otherwise we would totally consider living here.
Recently the city has renovated the old American Tobacco District, the old tobacco factories from the 1800s, and put them into good use. The space also includes the Durham Bulls Athletic Park for baseball games, the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) for concerts and live arts, and then a number of restaurants and green space for families. The rest of the city is quickly becoming home to a more artsy/hipster crowd which means...better local restaurants. YES.
At any rate, we hope you enjoy the pictures from this week.
