It has been a whirlwind couple of days up north! I’ve a ton of images, however I will wait to submit some extra later so it is not full overload. These footage are solely from the final couple of days…
Virtually as quickly as we arrived, Noah wished to arrange a hammock he’d simply purchased. His hammock is as straightforward to arrange as mine, however he additionally has a mosquito web and a climate cover. I used to be completely unfamiliar with these, however we labored on it. (Can I simply say that I despise that some corporations do not embrace directions now, and solely a hyperlink to a YouTube video?!)
That is what it appeared like after we have been performed. He slept in it that night time and stated it was tremendous comfortable.
Joey was SO excited to see us! All of us missed him, however it’s very clear how a lot enjoyable he is been having. Jeanie’s canines are glad to have him go to, too. Jeanie and Shawn provided to let him keep longer, however I feel we will deliver him dwelling with us. Hopefully he’ll wish to come! 😉
I took this image of Noah as a result of it made me chuckle that he appeared like an previous man. Early within the morning (on his nineteenth birthday), he was sitting on the porch in a rocker, studying a ebook and ingesting espresso in his pajamas.
I do not know why I bought so emotional about his birthday (possibly as a result of it is the primary one since he graduated highschool?) however I really like this image that Jerry took of us. Undoubtedly greater than Noah does, hahaha.
Since Noah loves Shrek, and he noticed the image I posted of him carrying the Shrek hat I made for him ages in the past, I made a decision I wished to knit him one other one. Being in the midst of nowhere, Jerry and I drove an hour to a Walmart to get the elements for his cake in addition to some inexperienced yarn. I had luck with the elements, however they did not have a very good inexperienced yarn for his hat (the shades have been very off).
By some loopy miracle, on the way in which again to Jeanie’s, we noticed an indication that stated, “Yarn Retailer, flip proper and two blocks forward.” A yarn retailer in the midst of nowhere? It was excellent. I wished vegan yarn (I will not purchase wool) and the shop proprietor (who undoubtedly wasn’t glad that I wished “faux” yarn) stated she solely had one skein of that coloration that wasn’t wool. So, I purchased it and began knitting his hat whereas the boys have been fishing.
We forgot to purchase birthday candles, so we used what Jeanie had–a 1 and a 2, plus 7 stick candles so as to add to the two. So, 19 candles for 19 years. Or one thing like that.
At this time, we went tubing down a river (I normally do not go together with everybody after they do this, as a result of I actually do not just like the water). I have never purchased a showering swimsuit in a few decade, so I did not have one. Jeanie began laughing and informed me that she had a disposable one! HAHAHA, I might by no means heard of such a factor.
When she introduced it out and I attempted it on, I used to be cracking up. I’ll submit the image if I am feeling courageous subsequent week; I do not even prefer to see *myself* in a showering swimsuit, not to mention submit a photograph of it on the web! However Shawn and I’ve talked loads about stepping out of our consolation zones, so I will attempt. Going tubing was a giant step right now.
Anyway, I will write about it soon–right now, I feel Jeanie and I are going to bake a cake 😉
