Camp Evie

Posted by Matty

We went camping this past weekend. It was Evie’s first tent-camping trip, and she loved it. We had a great time in the great outdoors. Pictures abound.

We camped with Evie last year in a cabin, but this was her first bona fide camping trip, tent’n'all. We went to East Fork Park, which is near home. The weather was beautiful, and we had a great campsite by the lake.

Brrr. There were 7.5 inches of snow on the truck this morning.

Posted by Matty

For Evie’s first Thanksgiving, we decided to stay home and spend some time together as a family. We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend, and I wish it could have lasted just a little bit longer.

Here’s a selection of pictures from the weekend.

Also, here’s a picture of her teeth!

Good morning, teeth!

Weekend bliss

Posted by Matty

It’s close to Thanksgiving, and I have so much to give thanks for.

We had a great weekend. We got some much-needed organizing done around the house, took some pictures of Evie, had our first fire of the season, and watched some Battlestar Galactica. It was a weekend that could’ve lasted a few more days.

And the aforementioned Evie pictures are just inside…

Evie has been growing so fast lately. She’s become a speed-crawler, trying lots of new foods, and now, without further ado, her latest trick.

(drum roll please)

In a pickle

Posted by Matty

This weekend, while at the McKinney Farmers Market, I was hypnotized by a vendor’s crate of pickling cucumbers. I’ve never pickled anything before, and to be honest, I like pickles, but I’m not c-r-a-z-y about ‘em. But Nancy is a pickle nut.

I did what had to be done, and a few dollars later, I was the proud owner of a bag of cukes.
