a camera-less trip to atlanta

(or, more accurately, a lens-less trip to atlanta. the camera was dropped on our way through the airport (note the blameless phrasing of that sentence) and the lens broke. of course i hadn’t packed another lens. and of course i hadn’t packed the little camera. thank goodness for the grandparents’ phones!)

we had a great journey across the country. josephine loves to fly and was so excited to get on the airplane; she was looking forward to seeing her grandparents and the fun stuff in store for us in atlanta, but she also was genuinely excited to sit on the airplane. lucky us!

once there, josephine settled right in. ned’s parents moved a few months ago and we all enjoyed touring the new house. josephine especially enjoyed the fact that she could look down into the living room from the landing at the top of the stairs. she made use of this multiple times, barking orders to those of us below like a small dictator perched atop her dais.

we spent a day at the incredible aquarium (makes seattle’s look like a small dirty pond with goldfish in it by comparison) and went to a fantastic production of “charlotte’s web” by the local puppet theater. josephine enjoyed being the center of attention at two dinner parties.

the weather didn’t live up to our high spring-in-the-south expectations but we relaxed and were hosted wonderfully (and got to see josephine wearing ned’s old ski hat) so we can’t complain one little bit.
