Mountains and Milestones

We went to the North Carolina Mountain house this past weekend. It was my first time going, and Drew had not been there in years.
I was a bit terrified the first couple of times going up/down the mountain roads, but gradually my fears lessened. Patrick had a wonderful time with all the new sights and smells. He also enjoyed being able to play with his Grandma & Grandpa D for more than just a few hours.

I'm so glad we decided to go. I want to have many more adventures like that. I sometimes enjoy just hiding away from the world, but I want to show Patrick everything, so hiding away is just not an option!
It was a short trip, rather impromptu, and a whole lot of fun! I cannot wait to go again! Maybe next time I'll even have time to visit two of my close friends who live a few hours away from where we were. That would be wonderful.

Another very cool thing about the trip to the mountain house is that Patrick had 2 milestone firsts while we were there! Friday, late afternoon, he grabbed his foot all by himself and nibbled on his toes. Now he just can't get enough of them! And then, Saturday afternoon, he rolled over from his belly to his back! Poor Drew was napping and missed it, but mom and I were so excited and Patrick thoroughly enjoyed our squeals of happiness and squealed right along with us.

Now, I just need to get these wonderful things on video!
