We’re fresh in from our slightly extended vacation to the north, but in our rush to get things ready for the trip we forgot to finish up our post last week. Sadly, this means a slight delay for those waiting for photos from the trip. We’ll try to get through them as fast as we can (all 600 of them).
During the week before the big trip, we decided it would be a good idea to take it easy. In general, this means a lot of horsing around at the house.
It also means we try to find low-key things that don’t involve a lot of running around. Two weeks ago, we’d promised Max that we’d take him to the library (he asked!) but when it came time for us to head over there we found it closed. Apparently they were updating everything with new fancy RFID tags so they speed up the check-out process. Pappaw also suggested that it would improve their Big Brother-esque ability to track down overdue books. But I digress.
On the way out, he insisted that we walk by some of the statues. It didn’t take long for him to disregard the various signs.
His brother was MIA for the big library trip, but he still managed to get in some lens time.
He also seems to have figured out some of his brother’s old tricks.
To finish off our mostly uneventful week, we made ourselves a big giant pot of pasta. As we’ve mentioned over the last few months, Owen has been on a slow but steady path toward food independence. This felt like a pretty big step.
We actually had a visit from Mimi and Pappaw that weekend, but sadly we didn’t capture any decent photos of the event. Luckily they provided us with the cover we needed to finish what we’d hoped would be the last of our pre-vacation shopping. Thanks again for the help!
That’s it for the pre-vacation blogging, save for the weekly link to the rest of the photos. With any luck, we’ll be all caught up by the end of the week. See you then!
