Thanks to Lala I have been re-computered! And it’s fabulous.
You can’t write a blog post on an Ipod, turns out.
So what have I been doing you ask? Well, we are very blessed to have lots of vacation time in our lives. We were able to go to California when Drake was a couple months old and see family, whilest relaxing in warm SoCal. It’s was delightful. We also spent some time on the Oregon coast this fall. The husband and I have decided we want to live by the ocean. It’s so wonderfully peaceful there. We would get up and eat breakfast, then go for a nice long walk on the beach while Drake took his first nap in the Moby wrap while mom carried him. Delightful for all!
Drake has been a total trouper about all the traveling. He gets tired of being in the car, but he has put up with lots of missed naps and driving hours after his bed time.
Here are some pictures of our fantastic adventures!
He basically napped the whole time, but he would wake occasionally and look at all the bright colors. My dear friend Mollie says Drake is crazy spoiled since he got to go to Disneyland at just two and a half months. =)
He loves the Moby Wrap more than anything! Nothing like being snuggled while mom and dad explore!
In the evening we would walk along the beach and pick up these little guys. We frequently found live ones as well, which are amazing!
All in all it was pretty fun Summer! Course, the two of us are excited about just about anything we get to do with our little man. =)
Our Jeep finally quit. Well, it didn’t so much quit as cost so much to repair that we were better off buying a new vehicle.
At first we were just planning on picking up a work truck or SUV type to replace it, but we found the market completely lacking in any choices at all up here in IF.
We looked online and found quite a few options in the Boise area, not shocking since it’s a good 10 or 15 times larger. The best surprise of all was to show up just as an older Cadillac, only one owner, and few miles on it, was rolling out to the parking lot. We were able to pay cash for it, and walked off the lot with a car my husbands loves.
We didn’t stay in town long, and didn’t get to see many people. But it was nice to see my sister and her little ones, and we’ve decided we are coming back in February for a baby shower, and that means I get to see LOTS of people that I love!!!
