Kuiper and a small yellow dog run around the yard together. Kuiper's tongue is sticking out.

Our First Epic Road Trip

“Mr. Watson — Come here — I want to see you.” Alexander Graham Bell, first intelligible words spoken over the telephone, 1876

We are home!! I was trying to get a formal portrait of Kuiper reuniting with his brother #focothedog, but a squirrel suddenly ran along our back fence, so we’ll go with this.

We still have some unpacking to do, but here’s some fun stats from our trip.
