Mom this place is pretty cool! I got to go on a train ride. It was longer than expected, but we got to see the conductor and everything. He was really nice. We have gone to the park, played with toys, rode bikes (well not me personally but Neacel held on to me), and they are planning a fun picnic with the other animals in Neacel's room.
Tomorrow we are going into Akron to see Neacel's friend Hugh. I heard he has drums that I can play, and a sandbox full of rice. How neat is that? Tonight I got to go watch Neacel practice soccer. He has his first game on Saturday and I'm so excited to go.
Neacel's little brother Brody is pretty nice too. He doesn't talk, but I get a ton of hugs from him. He does scream at Neacel though when Neacel tries to get me back. :0)
I miss you, but I want you to know I'm having a blast here.
Miss you tons
PS. I hope you like the picture. I was able to act like a train conductor for a few minutes. I will send you some more pictures and another letter soon... Oh, and you can read more details about my train ride at my host Mom's blog, Raising Little Dudes.
