And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Travel Baby

Hi all- sorry for the week of blogging silence. We were gone on vacation over Memorial Day weekend and when we got back my computer died. I use my work laptop for just about everything and have about 4 years of work stuff, pictures, music, etc on it. We got back from our nice relaxing vacation and the hard disk decided it had had enough of me and quit. So.....without a working computer and without pictures/videos etc, it has been a blog-less week.

To update on the last week....we took off on Thursday night for upstate New York to visit Brian's parents. They live in this awesome small town called Hamilton that somehow seems to be beautiful year round. Summer weather is and not at all humid and winter is snowy and gives the town a very winter wonderland feel. They live on the campus of Colgate University and it's always nice to go there and walk around.

Ben did great! He's in a very active stage of life right now and I know it's only going to get busier and busier but he no longer likes to be contained by anything (carseat, stroller, bumbo). So I was worried that the 6 hour car ride would be miserable. He did well all things considered! As long as someone was back there with him playing with him and changing out the toys in front of him, he did fine. We only had one small meltdown on the way and one medium sized one on the way back but definitely nothing that was more than we could handle.

The first of our summer vacations was lovely. It's always nice to see family and have family see how much Benj has grown. Thanks to Mom and Dad Roelofs for a great weekend!

I love that a pink Nalgene qualifies as a "toy." Then again, an almost-2 year old at my house thought my catalogs were "books." Oh, the simplified life of a child.
