Since February, Ryan has worked six weekends in a row, including two conferences where he was out of town - Barrett battled the vomit monster (every.single.day.for.a.month.nothankyouverymuch) and FINALLY won - Ryan is in the process of interviewing for a fellowship - we took a trip home to Oklahoma and Texas for a vacation - celebrated Easter - Barrett turned sixteen and now seventeen months old - and WHEW! Here we are!!
Needless to say, I have LOTS of catching up to do! I'll try to do it bits at a time with just a few pictures in between. The purpose of my blog is to keep our loved ones updated, so I'll do my best to get back on track. Here are a few pictures to share just what we've been up to the past few months.
In March, I found a listing on Craigslist for a swing set. It was EXACTLY what I had been looking for at a great price! The only problem - it was located 2.5 hours away! However, my sweet, precious husband volunteered on his post call day to drive all the way to the middle of nowhere Virginia to pick up this toy for our sweet boy! Let's just say it has already been the source of many, many hours of fun.
Nothing better than swinging with Dad
We have had some beautiful spring weather and have enjoyed many evenings out playing on Barrett's new toy. It has a slide with a "fort" underneath and two swings - just perfect for an adventurous little boy! Thanks so much to my sweet, sweet husband for making the long journey to Nowhere, Virginia to get such a great deal!
