After six months of limited contact with the outside world, we're finally able to (hopefully) release the pressure valve that is threatening to create a Shining-like scenario in our home. Today we departed Charlotte for the first time in months for a weekend in the mountains of western NC. We've all been looking forward to … Continue reading Year 3, Day 192
Miles is very picky about the...let's call it music we can put on while we're in the car. For instance, here's what we listened to on the way back from Wilmington last night. Notice that Miles is singing along. It was a...LONG drive.
Looking for something fun to do with Miles before we headed back to Charlotte today, we landed on taking a trip to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher. He loves sharks (baby ones, anyway); why not let him see a few up close? Well he absolutely loved it. Fish, sharks, seahorses, jellies...he was mesmerized for … Continue reading Year 2, Day 329
With a three-day weekend ahead of us, we traveled to Wilmington today to spend a couple days with our friends Heather and Jason. While we're hoping this weekend is pretty relaxing and low-key, we also recognize that Miles needs to burn off copious amounts of energy every day (especially after a lengthy car ride). Fortunately, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 327
Yesterday was pretty rainy, and although that weather scuttled our plans to take Miles to a petting zoo today, we still tried to get a little time with animals in during our remaining time in Virginia, from the requisite bird watching... ...to introducing Miles to the majesty (and no fear public pooping) of horses. And … Continue reading Year 2, Day 47

We drove back to Myrtle Beach tonight in advance of Miles's BFF Audrey's first birthday party. Miles slept for most of the drive, which was great for us; unfortunately, he was wide awake once we got to my parents' house, especially once he noticed the plush bear doll on the bed.
Miles spent most of his 300th day of existence in a car headed to Myrtle Beach for Christmas. It wasn't a terribly exciting drive (save for one event which I'll likely cover tomorrow), so instead of going into detail about how he slept most of the time, here's a highlight video of Miles playing with … Continue reading Day 300
One might consider concluding a trip that saw such misfortune as ours as quickly as possible, but we had one more stop to make on our way home. Instead of heading straight back to Charlotte, we traveled southeast towards our nation's capital to visit with my uncle, aunt, and cousin. Since Miles first joined us … Continue reading Day 281
