Seattle

for your Monday Morning

Tyler showed me this adorable, delightful, inspiring video last week and I am excited to share it with you. Click below to see 2 adorable ladies take on a travel adventure. You won't be able to not smile! 

It's an 8 minute video which is quite long, but I thought it was very worth it. 

Have a great Monday everyone!

the car life

In New York City a couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of staying in a great hotel in Midtown west, which was a new neighborhood for us to stay in. We usually frequent Central Park west, but were happy to try out some new restaurants.  

As usual we had to find a place to park our car for the duration of our stay. This time we left it in the ferry parking lot in Weehawken NJ.  After about day 4 of our time in NYC without our car, Isabelle turned and said to me, "Mom? Without our car, I feel a tiny bit homeless." 

After my heart broke into a billion tiny shards and silently and rapidly questioned all of my parenting tactics, I asked her if she would like to quickly take a ferry over to the car to say hello. I figured it might be worth the 35 minutes time it would take to do so, if it would make her feel better.  

She replied, "Tsk. No, mom-  I kind of like the feeling of being out here in the weird, cold world. It's adventure-y."

I couldn't possibly argue with that.

Tandem

We took a brief trip to Utah this last week, which was so wonderful. The night we got there it snowed- so the next morning, the kids were thrilled to see a winter wonderland. We finally feel like it's Christmas season! Something about the snow just makes it more official.

While there I overhead a very sweet conversation between my mom and Isaac during a very loud, rambunctious birthday party. It went something like this:

Isaac:  GramB, did you know I was adopted?

GramB: Why yes! I did! It was one of the most special days, ever. 

Isaac: *Gasp* it WAS????

GramB: Of course! And I was there to hold you shortly after you were brought home from the hospital! 

Isaac: *gasp* you WERE???? 

GramB: (laughing now) Of course!  You were so tiny--- the smallest baby I'd ever seen!

Isaac: I WAS SOOOO TINY?????

Isn't that the cutest?  I adore sensitive, soul-searching little boys.  Especially ones who commonly trick their relatives into telling them their details on his birth story.
