Weekending


This weekend was...

a trip north for a 40th birthday party. We asked a lot of Silas (patience with a long car ride, interrupted schedules, an unfamiliar bed, and rooms full of noise and strangers) and he showed better spirits than we could have hoped for. He was shy and clung to me like a baby koala. His uncle entertained us with guitar and song, much to Silas' delight. This little one can't get enough of live music. He danced and danced and howled when we tried to take him inside out of the cold and rain. After much merriment, the best homemade wantons ever, and lots of cousin love, we headed home and were glad to have all of Sunday afternoon to ourselves to wind down, reconnect over waffles and tea, and fine tune our monkey noises.

  1. Great that he coped well after all - it can get a little upside down when they are that age and travel. :-)

  6. Sounds like a great weekend, but always nice to be back home. Glad Silas handled it all so well. Reece was usually a trooper and still is in those circumstances, he usually sticks pretty close to me, taking it all in within the safety and love of mamas reach :)
