I spent the ride as the chauffeur:
When we finally got there, we got to see this adorable little face...
...(who just so happens to be the proud owner of these adorable things):
Meredith had to go back to work for a couple of hours, so Claire and I decided to nap (we'd been awake since 4 am for heaven's sake!).
When Meredith got home, we all pretty much decided to stay in, order pizza, and relax by the fire. Now, go ahead and stop assuming that it took a man to build a fire for us.
Meredith's dear husband was out of town, so it was up to the 3 of us to build a fire. And we did just that. I even took pictures to document our masterpiece! Go ahead and grab a pen and paper in case you'd like to learn how to build your very own fire! ;)
and: 3. Place the firewood strategically in the fireplace and use a starter block or 2...
4. Next, light a match, toss it into the fire...5. and VIOLA!
Now, do you sorta, kinda, understand why we didn't want to come back?
