The car trip was about what I expected. We rode with my parents on the way down and with Ryan on the way back. Here are some photos that show the progression of his mood:
I didn't take very many pictures while we were there (I left that up to everyone else!), but here are a few:
Being naughty with Grandpa and Uncle Bobby.
Playing ball with Harrison and Jack Betts. Those boys sure loved O (as did all the kids)!
We are getting pretty excited about Owen's first birthday (and the party) coming up this Saturday. Hopefully all of our family (or at least those that live in the state) will be here to help us celebrate. Owen is walking more and more and more every day. Sometimes I just watch him noodle around a room and marvel at how far he's come! I'll be sure to post the details of his big day (and hopefully LOTS of pictures). Until then, here are few more to enjoy from the past couple weeks...
Hanging out at the zoo. Owen was less than enthused about the animals, but enjoyed the stroller ride and people watching.
O's first dip in the backyard pool.
I don't let Owen hang out naked very often (I'm too afraid he'll pee all over everything!), but after his swim, he was too squirmy for me to dry off and get dressed, so I just let him hang free for a while. Obviously, you can see that he enjoyed it!
Owen: "Mom, what am I doing here?"
Mom: "I ask myself that same question almost daily."
