Here we are, back at the mechanic. Seriously, car, seriously. The mechanic had a little kid chair that he uses when he’s working low on the car, but that day, he let Noah sit in it while we waited for Tim (who was stuck in traffic). We have some friends who open up their house… Continue reading Friday’s pieces 07/28
In case you missed it: part 1 and part 2. It seemed to me that the sky on the Isle of Skye should be amazing. And it was. It was dramatic. When it was blue, it was very blue. When it rained, it poured (literally). Noah fell asleep right after we crossed the Skye Bridge,… Continue reading Scotland part 3- The Isle of Skye

We’re special here, and we celebrate the 4th of July on June 30th. Seriously, people. Maybe it… Continue reading 4th of July and we’re off on another adventure!
