The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. Both Mary and Eric, Sarah, and Jackson were in town last weekend, so I spent as much time as I could with them, catching up and cooing over how adorable Jackson is. This of course led to a landslide of fallen-behind work to catch up on over the week, but it was well worth it.

Another exciting thing that happened last week is that, after a year and a half of thinking about it, Zach and I finally bought a canoe! It’s a 16’ Wenonah, bought from Craigslist, that we named the Mary Anne (after the steam shovel in Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel). We took it out a few times on Creve Coeur Lake when the weather was warm, and are excited to take advantage of the other paddling opportunities in the St. Louis area. If you canoe around here and have some favorite spots, please let me know!
Not much else to report; I’m just catching my breath after a very social few days. Hope you guys have a good week!
