(I realize, of course, I am WAY behind in telling these stories.
If you want a more up-to-date look at what we’re doing, check out my Project Life 2012 gallery)
These images are from the first week of November, when we were in Phoenix for Miranda’s wedding.
Andrew and I both had work on Monday, so we didn’t plan on staying late Sunday.
Just breakfast with my family, quick stop to see Mat and Lisa’s new house, and then home.
We actually stayed a little bit later than we intended, just because we were dropping Kevin off at the Mesa airport (which was nearish where we were going to see Mat).
After dropping off Kevin, we put Mat’s address into the GPS map program on Andrew’s phone and basically drove blindly to find it.
I miss the days when people gave you actual directions.
Somehow we got the address wrong (typo in the text when Mat gave it to us, maybe) but the map program still found the street. Which is kind of remarkable. We were parked on this little culdesac, trying to figure out which house was Mat’s because we couldn’t see any address numbers that looked like what he told us….
… when he came out of one of the houses across the street with Owen in his arms.
Owen turned 2 in December – and he is such a smart, expressive adorable kid! So fun seeing him again with so much personality.
Only child getting to lay claim to this whole new house and backyard. … He handed Andrew and I each a bunch of rocks. Sharing his backyard with us, I suppose.
He showed us his bedroom (wanted to turn out the lights like naptime) and his playroom (he got to ‘open’ a new playroom for Christmas) and all in all slowed down the house tour.
But, you know we really came to see him and not the house anyway
We stayed a little while to chat and see the rest of their house – and then left town straight from there.
6 hour drive home.
(with plans to do it again in another 2 weeks)
