The Mountain Man and I spent Thanksgiving in Tucson, AZ with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and their new baby, Seddona. It was delightfully warm and sunny! I got to eat grapefruit and oranges from street trees (washed 'em first, don't you fret) and we got out climbing, something it's been too cold, windy and gray to do in Missoula for several weeks now.
Between rounds of Settlers of Catan, the most addictive board game I've ever played, we also hiked and obsessed over how cute the baby is.
The first child/grandchild/niece is always a big deal. I can speak from experience on this one, being one myself : )
