Happy Friday everyone!
Why is it so happy? Well, I know it's a 3 or 4 day weekend for many of you, but for me it is also the final 4 days of my vacation. Mrs. LIAYF, Lukas, and I have spent the past week taking it easy and hanging out here, in our city. It's been another Seattle staycation.
Yes, the weather has been so so, but most of the days have had nice enough periods for us to take bike rides, hang out on the beach, and take walks in our neighborhood. And, unlike some vacations where we are attempting to cram too many events into too little time, this one has been extremely relaxing.
Plus, Lukas has slept in until nearly 9:00 AM most mornings giving me time to catch up on some much needed shuteye.
But the very best part of it all has been the extra time I have had to spend with my wife and son. Especially Lukas, who is at an age where everything is exciting and new. We have so much fun hanging out, reading, exploring, and laughing together. It's almost hard to believe he will one day want as much distance as he can get from me, but I know it will eventually happen.
For now though, I am going to continue to enjoy these last few days of my vacation, having all kinds of fun with my little guy. Seriously, I haven't laughed this much in years.
By the way, today I have posted over at DadRevolution about potty training, trust, and peeing in public.
If you get a chance, I'd appreciate your weighing in and letting me know if you think we made the correct call.
