The reason I’ve been a bit MIA from the blog is because we just got back from road trippin’ it all the way to Missouri to celebrate my dad’s recent marriage (big post with lots of pics to follow).
When we visited my dad two summers ago, Matt and I just gritted our teeth and did the whole drive in one day (a 16-hour drive, not counting stops). Considering that we were going to be toting a rather energetic two-and-a-half-month-old this time, we figured we’d better be smart about it and do the drive over two days instead of just one.
It was Raven’s first real trip anywhere, and she let us know with ample giggles and kicking of the legs that she just loves being out in nature (and out of that dang carseat).
And because I couldn’t narrow down the pictures to a reasonable amount, you get to see about a bajillion pictures of the park and our adorable baby.
(Okay, so she slept for about a third of the time we were out and about wandering, but we were still pretty sure she loved it.)
(Men with babies are just the most attractive. Hence the reason I just couldn’t narrow down these pics of Matt and Raven…)
(Not pictured–the pics I got of an elk that crossed right in front of our car and was within touching distance of my window)
