post #200… what a fun ride this has been. ellen and greg just happened to come by the house today, took me and zoë out to lunch, and then whisked us away to their house. which is a total blessing, because that means i can finally post pictures of the munchkin. spencer is on his way home from washington d.c. where he was testing for a federal job. hopefully he’ll be through richmond before rush hour…
thanks for sticking out this bumpy ride of the last 19 months… hard to believe it’s been that long, and yet it feels like it’s flown by. i’ve been telling spencer we need another one, because zoë’s been so much fun. of course, we’re going to get health insurance first, so no worrying, okay?
and now, on to the pictures
she loves getting pulled around in this laundry basket.
keeeyyyysss!!
like a cat insisting on fitting in something way too small, she was determined to sit in these fairly small wire baskets.

hello? uh huh… okay! bye. – literal transcript of her conversation. seriously.

what? i’m supposed to keep my mouth shut?
spencer at the outset of the trip to savannah with brent and michelle. this was our first vacation in years, and you’ll notice zoë’s absence. she had a wild weekend at grandma and grandpa’s, and didn’t seem to miss us a bit.

we ate at a genuine pirate pub… stevenson apparently penned “treasure island” near here
vertigo inducing stairs round 1
vertigo inducing stairs round 2, on the way to the river front… lots of smelly tourists, in a very small space. did i mention it was very hot and humid?

a bridge in the savannah area that was once a boundary of land owned by spencer’s family… they burned it anticipating sherman’s march to the sea… sherman built a pontoon bridge instead. really cool bit of family history.

more hamburger

mmmm… hamburgers on labor day
