it's been a minute since i posted.
but it's not just because i've been a total garden slug. things have actually been going on.
currently, i'm in Boiling Springs, South Carolina. the birthplace of my sweet baby Gilly.
oh. interesting. you say you've never heard of Boiling Springs? i find that odd. especially when you consider the fact that the 8th wonder of the world resides here in Boiling Springs.
|behold. the boiling spring.|
...so yes, i went to the eye doctor here in South Carolina, i got my eyes checked and dilated,a new prescription and some new contacts. i'm pretty lame. but i needed an eye appointment anyways. why not do it here?
|yipes. that's a big pupil.|
anyways, garrett, gilly and i have had a lot of fun since we've been here.
gilly has really blossomed into a water dog and it's been lots of fun to see her romp and play with her cousin Winnie in various rivers and ponds.
|gilly take 1.|
|gilly take 2. she seriously barely woke up for any of this.|
|winnie was a little more bothered by the whole thing. but she was still precious.|
you're a good sport, winnie dog.
a very good sport.
and she really is, because a few days ago she cut her paw real bad in a pond and she has been limping and hopping and club-footing it like a champ. but sometimes, it's just tiring to have a club foot. and in those times, she is just so cute i can't not pull out my camera and take pictures of her.
it's been hard to see her so pathetic, and last night even gilly cuddled her and gave her get-well kisses. it was almost too much to handle. i didn't document. mostly because your heart would melt if you saw it.
today we went into Greenville. i don't think it's far from Boiling Springs at all, but having 4 people and a carseated baby packed into a jetta could make a trip to the grocery store feel like a road trip if you know what i mean. but it was really fun and really pretty and downtown Greenville was a lovely combination of the Gateway mall in Salt Lake and downtown Atlanta. i loved it.
|jared, jackie and baby gavin.|
|garrett. he thinks he's pretty cool.|
|my head is where birds go to lay their eggs.|
that's mostly all i have to report and share right now. except that i have watched an abnormal amount of Friends, jackie made cookie dough that tastes exactly like pralines and i think i might never want to go home.i know this post was pretty cheesy, but sometimes i just want to document life. and i guess this was one of those times.
i'm going to go watch another season of Friends or something.. because jackie and jared own all seasons of Friends and i just love that show too much to not watch 7 episodes back to back to back. judge me. i don't care.
