…But you’re gonna have to use the roof rack. Now that Ramona is a free-wheeling baby on Rumaire we can take her all sorts of places we couldn’t before. So Andy and I have decided to pack up the whole kit and caboodle and head to Michigan for a mini vacay. I have just started to compile a list of things needed for this “getaway” and am starting to feel like maybe we should just jack up the whole house and hit the road double-wide style.

Logistics aside we are really looking forward to it. We’ve caught up a bit on sleep, Simon is on the mend and we’re feeling some happy-family-feelings again. My little sister Eva has graciously agreed to go with us and help with the baby bouncing. Some likely activities include: long walks, eating dirt, swimming, and not wearing an oxygen canula.
