Living in Uptown has its ups and downs. It is convenient to restaurants and cute shops, but it definitely has a young- not family feel. We are still getting adjusted to apartment living, which means no more backyard, no more driveway, and sometimes noisy neighbors. We miss having a backyard A LOT, so Cole Park has been a savior. Jack and I spend many days and many hours here- it is definitely our adapted backyard for the time being.
