So we drove down to central Utah to have an Epic Weekend of Nerdiness in a beautiful ol' rustic cabin in the woods.
Rollin' my dice and feedin' my baby. Like I do.
The view from the front porch.
Jessica helping me get James strapped in for our woodland walk.
(Jesse, Spencer, and Nate in the background, with Tony behind the camera, makes for the whole group.)
At Penny Rock, with Spencer's excellent hiking attire.
Pardon my crazy face, but James was cute and snuggly in his carrier that he's way too big for now.
We love Spencer. I wish I could remember what he was expounding on. Probably the qualities of an excellent skipping stone.
My handsome boys.
Jesse teaching James about Lamb's Ear. (It's delicious.)
"That's right, rock. You better skip, and skip some more." Or something.
James learned he likes beards.
Seriously, we love Spencer.
I don't feel this picture needs an explanation.
Jessica cooked for us the whole weekend, because she's awesome. Cheesecake pancakes, people.
View from the loft.
Maya, oozing uncomfortableness at having to stand this close to the camera.
Of course, more pictures of the little guy. James got his first tooth this weekend - or at least that's when I first noticed it, but I've been feeling pretty regularly so it probably poked through while we were there. I'm irrationally proud of him and that tooth.
And I know the camera settings for all of these pictures are out of whack. I wasn't too worried about getting things just right, but it is frustrating to know in retrospect what I should have done differently. But I guess that's what learning is about.
My family. Heart.
