As I sat there, congratulating him for actually eating something I realized that I should probably be feeling a teensy tiny bit guilty for giving in and letting him be the boss. I suppose I can be comforted knowing that as the years progress, so will all of my other mom guilts. Cheers!
So I’m cheating. But I finally updated our joint blog at Overland Kai! Here’s my post for the week. 😀 Also check out our super amateur skills with the GoPro.
So it looks like we just started up this little page and then abandoned it. But, making new babies (don’t let that sound too dirty), finishing school, and life got in the way. This past weekend we finally got into the groove of exploring the outdoors (now as a family of four!). We’re also playing with some new toys.

Some people love to hate on Chacos, loudly proclaiming that those “rubber Jesus sandals” are butt ugly, like in this article. Obviously, these despisers have never donned the addicting, versatile shoe. So, to all of those haters out there, open your ears, open your minds. In case we have forgotten, yoga pants were originally made for...yoga. … Continue reading On Chacos: Words to their snobbish despisers
