summer. when the days are warm and extra long and life seems to pause for a few months time. those are the days! and while we spent the majority of ours organizing, purging and packing our lives into boxes we’ll someday get back to, we made sure to stop and soak up our solidarity while we had it, particularly nooked within the trees of heather road with a few activities scattered in between. i look at these pictures and think we did ok. it’s true what they say, home is where the heart is.¬†until next summer, where a whole new world of adventure awaits us!

earning her wings

i have to admit, the thought of flying with a baby was a bit intimidating. you’re the person everyone stares at while you parade down the aisle, in hopes that you don’t take the seat next to them. although it was scary, we made it! with flying colors! we learned a few tips and tricks along the way… exhibit a: throw a blanket [preferably a large changing mat that won’t suck up all the nasty] on the terminal floor and let your mini sprawl out and make lots of noise before boarding. exhibit b: do everything in your power to sit together [we were lucky enough to have friendly strangers switch around and make this happen] and occupy your mini for as long as possible before takeoff. exhibit c: layer that mini up, making her real warm and cozy. and the minute that aircraft starts moving, start feeding! if you’re lucky [like us] she’ll crash and sleep through the entire flight. i think you’ve passed the test when everyone jumps up to exit the plane and are shocked to see a baby in your arms. we’ll be taking this lady on many more adventures!

deep in the heart

our best-est of friends moved southwest last year and we miss them like mad on a daily basis. it was time we reconnect and acquaint logan with m+j. and, i just had to get my eyes [and hands] on that belly before it’s too late. that said, we spent this past weekend in dallas. basically we ate, and ate again, and ate some more and giggled like school girls while doing so. and thank heavens logan traveled and tagged along like a rockstar, cause if these two aren’t coming home anytime soon, i see lots of flying in our future. we just can’t live without them! thanks for having all three of us! until november [with the entire clan]…
