Henry and I just got back from a little trip south. We went to stay a night with my friend and her family and to do some shopping, of course.
It was fantastic. I think it's great for Henry to have different experiences and see different kids and people. Shopping is great as always. It's nice to be able to try things on and not just eyeball it on a website and hope for the best when it arrives a week later.
I can't say how incredibly happy I am to be home, though. We had a somewhat harrowing drive home (my child howled for almost two hours straight), but beyond that I am so glad for the wide open spaces.
The quiet and calm.
A sparkling lake.
Our whispering pines.
