And of course the wildlife was, well, wild. Big Boy charged ahead oblivious to the various danger of mountain bikers, steep descents and who knows what else could lie beyond mama's view. Little Sis tuckered out and the promptly tuckered her daddy out by demanding to be carried incessantly.
Here is a sterling example of the kinda of sibling love we got going on in our house. The roles alternate -- i.e. who is the pursuer and who is running for their life. As a general rule, Big D leads the way and Sis is his shadow.
I'd say that the goofy you see here is about what we get 95% of the time! So goofy that the child could starve! He will sit for an hour at the breakfast table and with lots and lots of mind numbing reminders, still not manage to put the silly aside long enough to eat a substantial meal. UGH. But isn't he cute?
So about the crazy I alluded to earlier -- tomorrow after work, this mama ships off to help a friend who will be having surgery on Wed. I'll return in time to work three days next week, pack up the family and then drive to CA. And then . . . and then hubby and I will leave ALONE together for a anniversary trip to Hawaii. I've got the pre-trip angst going on now -- part worry for my friend, part irrational fear that I'll forget some crucial detail in trip prep and then all will be RUINED. Silly, silly me. I've got lists. Lots of lists. The lists will save me;)
Anyone got suggestions for a casual bag to use for camera toting? I don't want to scream camera nerd -- something more "casual" or bag like. How's that for vague. Maybe that's why I don't know what to look for? Cheers!
