This weekend was...
a frenetic morning where Steve and I had to divide and conquer in order to get everything done.
He headed to the Farmer's Market alone while I packed and got the house ready for our two day absence.
We got on the road, headed north for a family reunion, two hours past our target time, which we still considered a success. Silas took the long car ride in stride.
Five minutes after getting out of the car in my hometown we had swimsuits on and were headed to the pool
(where I worked as a teenager) for my little guy to take his very first swim. My fish.
Surprise slips under the water didn't phase him. He just wiped his face off and got right back in.
Then back to grandma and grandpa's house to dry off and snuggle and head to bed 2 hours past bedtime.
He did not sleep in 2 hours at the other end, though. Up at 7:00 with a full day ahead. Lots of playing, baking, napping, and visiting. Seeing family we haven't seen since last year. This time Silas absolutely reveled in the crowd, falling head-over-heels in love with his cousins and helping grandpa break down tables and put them away. A long drive, but that breath of relief upon walking through the door. Home.

I was also over at Little Homestead in the Desert this weekend, visiting with the lovely KC.
