We have been a busy little household lately!
Last weekend we took our first ever family vacation. My father and stepmom always rent a cottage on the lake up north every summer, and invited us up to stay for the weekend. So we packed up the Jeep and headed north! Wyatt did so good in the car - it was a four hour drive, which took us five, but we had a pit stop in the middle so Wyatt could eat and be out of his car seat for a bit. He was fussy for maybe 15 minutes of the whole drive - he's a trooper!
We had a great time up north, despite the fact that it rained more than it has all summer! Our beach day hopes went down the drain, but we still slogged wetly through Leland/Fishtown, one of my favorite spots in northern Michigan. I was reminded of Innsmuth from Lovecraft, with the quaint fishing village, the gray skies, the unrelenting rain - minus the horrors of course. My dad generously bought us all warm sweatshirts, and onward we touristed. The highlight of that particular visit was the candy store! I usually skip that one, but this time we indulged and we were thankful later that night, while the wind was whipping around the cottage, and the rain was pelting down. We all got to snuggle inside, reading and playing games, and eating our candy. Or sleeping, if you were Wyatt. All in all, it was a great first trip.
In other news, I also started classes this week (two online Anthropology classes), and also, work! I haven't worked since before Wyatt was born, but my cousin is an attorney and needed some help in the office. So I'm back in the world! Only two half days a week, but that is enough for now, with everything else that is happening. It's fun to get out and do something different.
So the last week went from zero to sixty in a hurry, and I am excited about the new changes, although I will miss the nugget while I am away!
