Doin’ the Walk

We went to the annual OSU Walk-around, and had a pretty great time! It was perfect weather. We didn’t stay too long because honestly – how much fun does an almost one year old have at those things? She was interested in people for a while, and then lost interest and just wanted some peace and quiet. So we sat in the grass on campus for about half an hour, close enough to feel apart of the festivities, yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. We always look for things to take Aurora to, thinking it will be this monumental moment for her… but most of the time she shrugs it off and doesn’t really care either way. Oh well, one day she’ll appreciate it. There is this list of things in my mind that I think, “Oh man, I can’t wait for Aurora to experience THIS for the first time, she’s going to LOVE it!” And then it happens and her reaction isn’t as huge as I expected it to be. But even knowing that, I still think that her first Thanksgiving meal will be awesome. It just will be.
