Daddy's Apartment a.k.a. The Cabin

For the past year Jeremy has been working down in Bisbee AZ and living in this apartment during the week and traveling home for the weekends. During the hottest part of the summer we lived with him full time in his one bedroom apartment because it is so much cooler in Bisbee. Andrew took his first steps here and both kids learned how to sleep in the same room. We hope Jeremy is blessed with a new job, closer to home soon so we can put this chapter of our lives in the history books. But, for now, we enjoy being together when we can.

This is the view looking into the apartment from the front door. Behind the t.v. is the bedroom which will only fit one twin size bed and a pack-n-play. Notice the radiator. It comes on from 4-6 in the morning and 6-8 at night. It can get quite cold in there during the day. The building is made of concrete, so if it is cold outside it is cold inside as well.
This is the view looking back at the door to the apartment.
This is the view looking from the bedroom door into the living space and then on into the kitchen. The bathroom door is on the right.

Here's the kitchen. Look at all that counter space!

Jeremy's lovely table and chairs.
In this experience we have really learned that you can do a lot with a little. When we are there, the kids spend each afternoon at the park with Daddy. I know Andrew's balance and agility comes from navigating up and down the play structure at the park. They also visit some goats and chickens that are in someones yard.

It doesn't matter where you live, as long as you make the most of it.
