How was your week, friends? Ours was pretty decent and ended with some warm(er) weather and a visit from Eric’s Mom and Dad. Would you like to hear more? Here’s some of our highlights:
I met up with a friend on Monday and we practiced some more with our woven wraps. It’s so so nice to have someone to practice with. I’m now really comfortable doing the Front Cross Carry (FCC), Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC), Rucksack Tied in Front (RTIF), Rucksack Tied Tibetan (RTT), Reinforced Rucksack (RR), and the Back Wrap Cross Carry (BWCC). I’m now working on the Double Hammock. I’m just having trouble getting the second pass high enough. Anyone know any tricks?
I finally visited Trader Joe’s this week. We had one open in our town a few months back and I just now got there! I’ve been to one before. We like to go to this one in NJ when we visit Eric’s family since it sells wine – you know, the $2 buck chuck. Although it’s not $2 anymore. Anyways, I picked up some fun goodies – banana chips, sorbet, hummus, some fresh fruit. Yum!
We’ve had some crazy weather this past week. From snow to hail to sunshine! PA weather is just crazy.
Haley and Grady’s Nanny and Poppy came to visit. Grady, of course, was especially excited. He talked all week about them coming, pretended to call them on the phone, etc. They had lots of fun playing together while they were here. We went to our favorite Thai restaurant and I got my favorite meal of all time – Lemongrass Chicken. Amazing! I get it every time we go there.
Haley and Grady went swimming at the hotel. Grady’s very scared of the water and it took lots of coaxing for him to get in. Even when he did, he wouldn’t let go of whoever was holding him. Haley, on the other hand, is a fish. She just LOVED it. Splashing, laughing, kicking her legs. She was just having a ball!
We also took a short trip while they were here. We drove an hour or so from us to see some elk. There’s lots of elk in PA and one spot in particular (Benezette) is known as Elk Country. There’s probably about 700 wild elk in the area that just roam freely. It’s really amazing to be that close to them. We were very lucky and got to see a whole heard (and lots of their poop, lol). It was everywhere and looked like chocolate chips. Hahaha. Elk watching at it’s finest.
We ended the weekend with a neighborhood stroll. It’ll be great to get back into our routine of after dinner walks once the weather gets warm and stays warm. I miss it dearly. I’m really just not meant for cold weather!
