The First Leg

I don’t even know where to start! I guess I’ll just jump on in.

9 more ducks arrived before we left! NINE! That brings our count to 14. Which is kind of funny when you consider that we never planned on having ducks, at all. I hope they are going to be okay.

Meriah Nichols -1We headed on down to the Bay Area, a total breeze. I kept wanting to take notes in my head for a post on how much easier it is to travel with a partner – what a piece of cake potty breaks are, how peachy absolutely everything is. I had it all written in my head, but of course I forgot it after we arrived.

Meriah Nichols -5This is Mack and Moxie at Mikey’s grandma’s house – they are drawn to everything they can break. We didn’t stay too long. But long enough to spend some time with his grandma, auntie and uncle. We really love them.
