March 2015, days (or perhaps even the day) after Tm’s return from his 7 month+ deployment. We went for a walk to the river and took some pictures. It was cold and Evie chowed down on raspberries and pirate booty. She wore the hat I made her.
June 2015, Seattle, at the top of what Evie still calls the Space Noodle (and don’t you dare correct her). After taking some selfies with Daddy, Evie bonked her face on something and lost her mind. Tim calmed her down by showing her the pictures they just took together, then showed me. I love this image.
Some of my favorite photos from our England trip that didn’t make it into the other posts. After this I’m finished posting, I swear :)
My Great Uncle Ted, who told us awesome stories.
And of course, my incomparable Grandad. (In case you can’t read his hat, it says “If older looks better, I must be approaching magnificent.” He has a whole collection of trucker hats with various witticisms. Much like a young hipster.)
Well, with about 11 hours to spare, I just managed to meet my goal of blogging our whole England trip by the end of January. I’m already looking forward to my next trip to the motherland – hopefully during some warm weather, this time.
This duck pond is a 5 minute walk from my Grandad’s house in Redditch. It doesn’t look like much right now, being frozen and devoid of ducks, but I have many happy childhood memories here. I was so happy Tim got to see it. It was freezing, so we threw some bread at the seagulls, took some photos, and went back inside to have tea.
That night, we braved the icy roads (we are from Missouri, after all) and went to a pub. Life List item: Have a Guinness with Tim in an English pub – check!
*My crazy family (see above). I’m so excited to spend Christmas in England with the whole crew.
*My sweet puppies. I can’t wait to come home and snuggle.
*My husband. Newlywed update: marriage rocks. Also, I’m so thankful that we got married a year early – I can’t imagine still planning a wedding right now. And next July, instead of freaking out about playlists and centerpieces, we’ll be celebrating our one year anniversary.
*My lovely ladies. Looking forward to laughing till I cry when I come home.
*That I get to spend so much time on the other side of the world – something I will probably never do again.
*Cheese. I’m sorry, but there it is.
