This weekend was filled with the hustle and bustle of travel.
We packed up on Saturday morning and headed to Steve's parents' house where he worked on their computers and Silas spent time with his grandparents.
Their backyard is a bit of a magical woodland filled with enough squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and bunnies to keep my little guy signing all weekend; delighted with these creatures.
Steve got to introduce Silas to his favorite childhood pizza place and I tasted my first slice of peach pie.
After a rainy drive home, we reconnected around the dinner table, heating the kitchen against the drizzling rain with batches of cookies and banana bread.

    1. I'm not proud to admit it, but it was my first slice of peach pie ever. We were not a pie eating family when I was growing up. :)
