we had a great time. boden did wonderful on the long car ride. we got to spend a wonderful day at the beach and found some fun parks in the area too. michael's class went really well, he got great feedback on his sermon, and learned some invaluable things through the pastors & professor. we stopped over in west virginia on the way home. thanks to dad for checking hotel reviews for us while we were pulling in to charleston - saved us from almost staying in a total dump. the hotel we did find was very nice, but i'd be much happier with it if i hadn't left my brand new memory foam pillow there :( About an hour outside charleston i started looking around for my pillow...i was not happy to find out it wasn't there. but, at least we know it has company....we're pretty sure michael's black belt is there too. lol.

i think boden's favorite animals were definitely the penguins. they kept diving into the water right in front of him and he would squeal and point - he got very excited. it was so fun to watch him. in one of the photos you can see michael trying to teach him to throw a penny into the fountain - he had absolutely no interest in letting go of that penny, he had a death grip on it and was not letting go.

here's some pictures of what boden has been up to lately...
riding his scooter all around. he finally figured out how to get on it by himself, he really only goes backwards though, he hasn't figured out forwards just yet:
hanging out in his rocking chair. this was michael's rocking chair when he was little. boden loves crawling into the chair and just hanging out, drinking his milk or playing with a toy.
reading a book...he's finally starting to get interested in books for more than just chewing on them :)
trying to eat rocks...we have been spending a lot of time outside since the weather has been so beautiful lately and boden loves to be outside, exploring - in fact he screams every time i make him go inside.
more outdoor exploration...
