Last weekend we took the train to Olympia to spend the night with my aunt and visit my other aunt and uncle and my cousin and her boyfriend and my aunt and uncle’s dog and cats and tiny new puppy! It was Ari’s second train trip and it worked out great again – most of the way there he slept in his car seat on the seat across from me, and most of the way back he slept in his car seat on the seat next to me.
Here he is on the way there:
And on the way back, after he woke up, in the dining car – he stepped on one of his socks and pulled it off:

I have a few other pictures from home to share, too. When we went hiking last week, my back got sore using the Ergo. I want to be able to do more hiking with Ari this summer, so I went to the consignment store and picked up a Deuter KangaKid expanding kid carrier backpack. So far, I like it!
Here’s a picture of Ari in his funny outfit that day:
I’ve discovered that Ari’s little color-changing elephant lamp is a great way to keep him occupied for a while – he’s fascinated!
I love the effects of these next two; they remind me of photos from the 60s:
Last, check out this rat tail he’s sporting! I don’t want to have his hair cut yet though!
