Here are some photos of our lovely cabin. It was glorious to be cut off from the distractions of the internet and cell phones. I can’t tell you how many times I thought, “I should Google such-and-such” but somehow survived without looking it up! I often think, “People are depending on me to read their potential text messages, etc.!” but that’s not an acceptable reason to glance absentmindedly at my phone as frequently as I do. In fact, I’m downgrading from an iPhone to a boring phone sometime in the near future, and while I shall miss Instagram, I think I shall benefit from being a more attentive mother! End rant.

The Tuck Box, the house Matthew and Walter are standing in front of, is part of a large group of fairytale-themed houses in Carmel, CA. Many more of these gorgeous houses can be seen online, click here.

We toured the Mission in Carmel where Blessed Junipero Serra is buried. It was beautiful but I failed to take any pictures. I did however, get a picture of the lovely little Adoration Chapel nearby. Walter made a wild attempt to climb onto the altar, but we escaped without further mishap.

Last but not least, I had to post a picture of Walter in the overalls he wore today. We were recently gifted some hand-me-downs from a new little friend, and I think he looks very handsome indeed.

That’s all for tonight.

Love,

Margaret
