I took my third (and final free) plane trip last month to Seattle and nearby national parks.
We saw snow.
We saw mountains.
We saw the ocean.
We saw lakes.
We saw waterfalls.
And we saw more waterfalls.
We saw trees.
And we saw bigger trees.
We saw tall buildings.
We saw fish.
It was the bestest vacation ever, or at least the best vacation since the last one.
I’ve been turning lights off like crazy at home, but it wasn’t until I found some switches at my own height that I could figure out how to turn them back on as well.
We traveled all around and I got to visit all my grandparents and great grandparents for Thanksgiving.
At Grandma Barb & Grandpa Bruce’s house I showed everyone how fast I could crawl, and I even took a few steps.
I also got to play with my cousins Caleb & Vivian, and see my great grandparents.
Later, at Grandma Nancy & Grandpa Dick’s house I showed Grandma & Great Aunty how to play the piano on my iPad.
And I got into some mischief there as well.
I can’t wait to visit all my relatives again. We just always have the bestest time together.
Week two in St. Louis was even busier than week one. I tried to be on my bestest behavior because I could tell Mom & Dad were both way stressed. I entertained myself for hours in our hotel room, racing back and forth along the floor.
I usually slept pretty well (okay, except for a couple times). Since we were all the same room, Mom & Dad kept extra quiet and turned all the lights off so I could sleep better.
Dad & I did lots of walking (and a little bit of cycling) out in the hot sun. Dad got new sunburns everyday, while I worked on my sweet leg tan. We hit the zoo a few more times, as I enjoy spending time with other apes.
Finally, last but not least, we moved into our new house!!! Sort of. Well, we’re here, except all we have is what fit in our car. The place is pretty bare at the moment, but that’s kind of good as I have more room to crawl.
I love this place!
It’s been one heck of a week. We moved (temporarily) into a hotel room in St. Louis and Mom has been working every day at her new job. During the days Dad tries to keep me entertained with various activities, sometimes even pushing me in the stroller while talking on the phone or answering emails from people at work.
So far we’ve made too many loops to count around Forest Park in the bike trailer. We’ve walked and biked all over the Washington University campus, our future neighborhood, my future daycare, the loop, and so on.
Daddy & I have been to the zoo twice and we still haven’t even seen half of it.
We also went to the Magic House children’s museum. It was super-cool, though most of it was a bit too advanced for me right now. I’ll probably get more out of it in the coming months.
On top of everything else, I’ve been trying exciting new foods, like Clif Bars and Veggie Sticks.
My new favorite activity is crawling back and forth on the floor of the hotel room.
I can’t wait for more of the same in the coming week. I’m having such a blast!
