in a perfect world of yancies: The Aunts Go Marching: Hurrah!

The Aunts Go Marching: Hurrah!

What better way to spend a weekend than introducing Franklin to one more aunt? And Merrica's timing was perfect: we enjoyed some beautiful fall weather. Picnic weather even!
Lunch Under Heybrook Lookout
As you probably remember, our previous hike to Heybrook Lookout was great, except for clouds obscuring the view from the top.

But not this time! After some snacks at the above table (at the end of the trail), we ascended the lookout to, as they say, see what we could see:

Not bad at all! (Thanks for the photos, Merrica!)

We also took Merrica out for some ramen... Franklin seemed to like it too:

Love that noodle hanging out of his mouth... which he swallowed moments after the pic was snapped :)

Speaking of eating, how about the swanky bib his aunt brought him?

Come back soon!
Aunt Merrica!

Bonus content: because the little guy's growing and changing so much, I might just post these now before they're old news...

So, first, Franklin and Theo on their way to visit some of the elderly residents at the Mount St. Vincent Intergenerational Learning Center:

And boy is this kid ready to crawl!

Okay, I should probably run—better get back to babyproofing!


  1. Thank you for making my heart sing!!!

    Love, Grandma Christine X :) X

  2. Looks like some great times...and he appears just days away from exploring his home on his own.

  3. Yes, I'm trying to make the most out of these last few days where I can turn my back on him :)
