Visiting family and friends

Well this has been a fun filled travel week for us.  We are currently in Pennsylvania with father in law (FiL), have already visited Great Grandma, uncles, aunts and cousins in New Jersey, college orientation for Josh and soon we travel to Delaware and then back to Virginia until moving date.

Whew! That's exhausting.  This is when we appreciate having a big Chevy conversation that seats 7 and hold a week worth of stuff.  I generally keep 2 trash bags in the car for easy clean up, 2 coolers with traveling snacks and drinks, a bag of toys and books and of course some electronics to keep kids entertained.  Oh and lets not forget the good old GPS for detouring when traffic gets ugly - that is definitely a life saver.

The kids have visited the local Zoo with daddy and the park where their dad used to play when he was a kid.  We are planning to visit the King of Prussia Mall in a few minutes here-- it's time to let the baby run himself tired.  You ever been there...it's a big mall with more stores than I can handle but it's fun to walk through it.  It's a bit on the expensive side for me so there's a lot of just dreaming going on --Ha ha!!

Daddy has been reconnecting with old friends and with his brother, going night fishing and catching nothing but good stories and a few mosquito bites but it's the quality of time that matters right? No?  A big fish for dinner would have been fantastic, maybe tonight.

Time to go "window" shopping at KoP Mall Plaza and The Court.  Look forward to sharing more about wine from Neil, more about our trip, and more about life.  Have a great week everyone!!
