Luxury living

Did I ever mention that I love our apartment? I really do! I love it so much, that I really don't think I want to go back to a single family home again. I love apartment life and all the kids who are always around for Jack to play with. I love having a swimming pool and spa that I never have to clean. I love the game room and movie room and I love our view. 

Anyways, here is a tour of our luxurious temporary living accommodation. 

I guess the one bad thing about our apartment is that it is on the 3rd floor. Which is a pain for me, but I guess it can be considered my exercise for the day :-)

Here is our apartment on the top floor
When you walk in the front door you will see our bedroom.  (remember we are living off bare necessities since all of our stuff is in London and everything thing we have is either borrowed or rented)
Our no frills bedroom
 Our apartment is only a one bedroom, but we have a good size closet which also doubles as Jack's room
 Jack thinks his room is the coolest thing ever! And we are happy for that.
 Here is our living room
 Dining table
 And the magnificent view of the lake

We even have a washer and dryer right in our apartment!! After 2 years of having to share a washer and dryer, it's almost too good to be true!

 Here is my kitchen, and up above you can see where Luke spends 90% of his time working in the loft.
The loft is a magical place. No one is allowed up there except for Luke. The gate at the front of the steps keeps all little feet out. Of course, that doesn't stop them from trying...or begging to be allowed into the "special" place.

 Our bathroom:
 And some more views of the sunset from our living room

 There is also a nice paved path right along the lake so Jack can ride his bike
 Now, I'll show you the clubhouse where we get all sorts of extra goodies.

Here is the entrance to the clubhouse:
 The game room with a wii, playstation 3, XBO 360, pool table and shuffle board
 Jack and his buddy Liam playing Wii

 There is also a huge kitchen in case you want to have a party in the clubhouse
 Lounge area by the fireplace
 Movie room with popcorn maker and all sorts of delicious toppings
 Movie screen
 Work out room
 And the best part of all... the pool! This is the most amazing pool ever. Half of the pool is shallow with beach entry and Jack can play alone without having to wear floaties. Then the other half if the deeper lap pool.
 The zero entry makes it fun for Lily too! She loves to crawl in and out of the water.
 The hot tub
 Jack and his buddies by the firepit
 Outside lounging
And there you have it! Our luxury living. When the time comes it will be very hard to say good bye to this place. 


  1. WOW! That whole complex looks so nice! That is awesome that they let you have a one bedroom! In California, the law is over 3 people have to have 2 bedrooms! That view is fantastic! So glad you guys found that great apartment! :)

  2. I think they may have that same rule here... but our apartment is one bedroom plus the loft so maybe that's why they let us have it. Funny rule though because our bedroom is plenty big enough for all of us :-)

  3. That little Lily is such a cutie pie! What a smoochy face!!!!

  4. Thanks Kay! Lily sure is a doll and she knows it ;-)
