"Mommy, Where Are Going Today?"

We spent the last couple of weeks out of town and on the go. It was a fantastic time, but a crazy one too. After so much excitement, even though we've been home for a few days, Trip keeps asking, "Mommy, where are going today?" He's sure that we should be going on some more great adventures whereas all Daddy and I want is to stay home and catch up.

Our travels started with a couple of days with our friends. We caught up on each other's lives, ate wonderful food, did some shopping, went to a few meetings, and enjoyed a day of fishing. Trip had lots of fun playing with his friends while the dads fished. At the end of the day, the boys decided to hold hands on the hike back to the car.

We were away for Trip's birthday and we got to take him to the Oregon Zoo. He had a great time and loved getting close to a few animals. The penguins were definitely a highlight.

Since it was his birthday, we decided to get tickets for the train. He enjoyed the ride immensely.

Trip was very brave and crawled through the little tunnel so that he could see some animals up close.

He was thrilled to feed the birds,

and was quite calm and gentle with them- for a few minutes, at least.

After our time with our friends, we were off to camp. We got to make a stop at Ikea, which was fun for all of us. Trip couldn't resist climbing in this bed and getting comfy.

We had a great time at camp. Daddy was one of the directors and there were about 250 high school students, so Trip got a lot of attention. He especially loved the bounce house,

the pool, and trying on some sports equipment they had.

He was pretty sad to come home, but the promise of his upcoming birthday party made it a little easier.
