Adam took his paternity leave for the month of September. We recorded every fun thing we did each day so we could look back on the month and remember how much fun we had, as opposed to feeling like the month passed too fast and we didn't get to do anything fun. Notice how many times I said 'fun'? That was the theme of paternity leave.
Here is the summary:
3 camping trips around Washington
1 non-camping trip in Oregon
bought a used Toyota 4 Runner on Craigslist
Adam got a hunting licence
looked at cute houses to rent on Craigslist (West Seattle, mainly)
played D&D at least twice a week
played Magic a couple times
preserved 150 lbs of fruit
Adam became radioactive for a bone scan on his injured ankle
went roller skating
watched season 4, 5, 6, and 7 of 'The Office'
visited friends and family
