Aaron, Jacob and I just got back from a wonderful time on the Oregon Coast. Aaron had a conference in Seaside on Wednesday, Thursday, and part of the day Friday, and we were able to tag along. Friday night was spent in Cannon Beach and Saturday night in Portland. We had a super fun, super smooth trip and Jake was quite the trooper. (I'll blog more about the details later) After Jake spent the last part of ride home fussing in his car seat, we pulled in around 6 o'clock and put the whiny boy on the changing table to get undressed before bathtime. Usually he doesn't like being set down when he's fussy, but tonight when Aaron set him down, he just looked around at the surroundings in his bedroom and just started giggling and giggling. For about 5 minutes he was almost giddy! He was just looking around at the walls and the ceiling and the curtains and just laughing. It was as if he had missed being in his familiar environment--it was hilarious! I guess he's a homebody like his mama :) Even though we had a very special time, I think it's safe to say that we're all glad to be home.
