If this isn't Miles "living his best life," I can't imagine what it would look like. Of course, he didn't get everything he wanted on this trip. After spending the morning at the beach, we went by a bookstore to pick up some stamps for postcards. Miles, naturally, wanted everything in the store, but none … Continue reading Year 5, Day 238

It wasn't long after we got on the road this morning that Miles started complaining that he needed a drink, despite knowing full-well that it's impossible for me to just conjure juice out of thin air.

Matching wits over a glass of water.
Year 2, Day 195
I arrived home from Orlando this evening and immediately wanted to share my bounty with the family. There's no way I'd go to Disney World without buying some mementos for Miles, and there's especially no way I'd do that when a Star Wars park is involved. I knew the moment I saw them at a … Continue reading Year 2, Day 195
