Sprinter Life received a surprise visitor last week. On a last minute whim, my brother Adam flew down to see us. We were both VERY stoked to see him. We love this guy!!!!
Since we only go back to the States about once a year now, we took advantage of my brothers passage and had him bring down a ton of stuff.
I’ve now been officially trained on how to fold tiny girl clothes that are the size of a face towel. You would think it’s easy, but trust me, it’s not. Apparently there are certain rules and regulations that facilitate following the perfect symmetry of each tiny garment. Below Stevie gives me an approving smile at my baby clothes folding graduation.
SIDE NOTE: For the record, I’ve now been bumped from the 2nd to the 3rd largest wardrobe in the family, right behind Mama and baby. Oh well, at least I still have Kiki beat. I do still have Kiki beat, right Stevie???
Since I never got an official answer to that last question, I better stay vigilant with increasing the size of my wardrobe.
Aside from a bunch of baby stuff, my brother also brought me a bunch of goodies. A full set of kayaking gear arrived. LAN airlines rejected the actual kayak and paddle he tried to bring, but I think my friend from First Descents is going to bring it down next month. Then we’ll be in business for some whitewater action.
He also brought all the missing pieces to my climbing rack, a rope, a new harness, and other mission critical gear. This put an enormous smile on my face!
I want to thank my good friends who helped me rebuild my climbing arsenal.
And a very special thanks to my best climbing partner ever, Beckett Honicker, AKA Dragon. Thank you for sending back my Hybrid Aliens. My babies are home.
Dragon, you will be very happy these are on the rack next year when we’re in Patagonia!
And another special thanks to the Outdoorplay crew for the sweet card and homemade stuffed animal. Very cool! I put it with my favorite pre-baby items.
Dad’s Sprinter Life Pre-Baby Shrine:
1 “Dad To Be” medal
1 4d ultrasound baby photo
1 baby on board sign
1 “Made In Peru” flag
1 Cuban cigar
And now 1 ODP stuffed animal.
My brother will be here for a couple weeks, then shortly after he leaves we receive our next guest, my Mom! She’s coming down for the birth, and to hang with us until December. Is there anything better than a Mom? Seriously! We can’t wait to see her.
