Family Vacation

I am now 100% absolutely and completely certain that I have passed one of life's major thresholds. How, you ask, can I be so certain? Fortunately for me this one is dead on positive - I just finished packing for our family vacation and realized that I packed more pairs of shoes for my son than I did for myself. I don't know whether to crumble in defeat or shout in glory that I'm apparently dedicated to "staying the course" of shoe supremacy via my son. He has a pair of cowboy boots, a pair of snow boots, a pair of rain boots, some really adorable (yet probably not weather appropriate, but what the hell...) Keen sandals, and of course - his sneakers.

OK, I admit - I'm bringing more pairs than that for myself, but still... he's 17 months old! I'd share a picture of our shoe packing extravaganza but to be honest it's a bit embarrassing...

We're off to cooler climates and higher altitudes and a cabin in the woods of the Rockies. Fishing, grilling, hiking, soaking up the love of the land and maybe even a hot tub or two when the babes asleep. I can't wait to be to back out west - it's been WAY TOO LONG.

HAVE FUN, take lots of photos (I know you will) and enjoy the fresh air with the family.

And, haha about the shoes. At least you wear several different pairs of shoes. I own about 30 pair and only wear the same 2 pairs. Go figure.

FUN! I just bought Micah a pair of froggie rain boots at the resale shop - I can't remember the last time I bought myself shoes, but Mic has 5 pr of Converse alone. It's bad.
Happy vacation!
