Just to note how much it sucks for Ted to be back in St. Louis: when he got home, all of our power in the kitchen had gone out. Couple that with hot weather and food in the fridge, and you can get the picture. He had to get up on garbage day at 5:15am to clean out the fridge. Then yesterday, our A/C stopped working. And it is over 100 degrees and high humidity right now. I asked him what he was up to earlier, and he said "sauna-ing." Poor guy. I will admit that I am not too anxious to get back until he has fixed everything. Thanks Ted!
Pictures from our trip so far...
4-wheelin' with Papa
One of the great things we did was we went camping on the "North Shore" of Lake Superior with Papa and Grandma. Nolan was such a great kid. He LOVED sleeping in the camper and hiking was also a favorite.
Nolan's new buddy-a chipmunk
I love you, Daddy!
As you can see, we have had quite the adventures. While here, Nolan has tried many new foods: bbq chicken (no sauce, of course!), turkey, hamburger, watermelon, and his favorite, Minnesota blueberries. He has also reached a big milestone-his bottom 2 teeth! My parents call him "Two Tooth Jones." He hasn't quite figure out crawling forwards yet, but he is so close. With his determination, it won't be long until my life is completely changed.
I have so many more great pictures of everything we have done here, but this post is specially for Daddy. Hence all the Nolan/Kristina pictures. (But does he really need pictures of me anymore? Isn't it all about the child?) I can't wait to share all the cousins, cabin pictures, wedding pictures, grandparents, and everything else. I will cheat, though and encourage you to check out my sister, Melissa's blog for a great post to tide you over. Thanks Melis!
