a week…

21 Feb

…we set off with our bags and extra boots and snacks, we invaded our friend’s and family’s homes, we ate delicious food (oh the food!), we went to places we remembered from when we were little, we saw sea lions and leemers…

…we watched the olympics (has anyone else been watching 10x as much tv lately?), we made valentine’s cookies…

…we talked and laughed, drank tea and stayed up late…we made ourselves comfortable…

(seriously, this girl is never wearing pants…)

…we drove across the city…

…we drove to another city…

(and of course, juju – this doll – came with us everywhere. we are becoming really really paranoid about losing her)

…and i must confess, of the 15ish hours that we spent in the car, i drove zero of them. hooray for trevor! and of the three books i brought along to read while on the road, i read zero words – and did this instead…

…and at our last stop we crafted and swam, ate peanut butter cookies and put on our mittens because it is still winter…

…in every place we stopped i found a thrift store (some of the nicest and cleanest ones i’ve ever seen!) and eventually filled the trunk with goodies. i didn’t check my email or do the laundry everyday, and goodness, how nice it was just to be away from home for a little while. and of course, how lovely it is to be here again…oh the magic of a wee vacation…
