More Days At The Cabin

Spent the weekend at the Fox cabin. Good times.  My girls are crashed this morning... one sleeping on the couch and one on the chair beside me.  Now on to that laundry pile.

Vacation Wagon

Had a blast taking this sweet family's pictures. Such good sports they were. And that Carson, he was always doing the cutest things.

Things I'm loving right now...
Yesterday I was shopping in Philly with friends. Days like that are so good. Girl time.

But this morning, to have a morning at home. Precious.

9 weeks till due date, starting to look close.

Nate's Grandma is getting married this Saturday! I am so happy for them and excited about the wedding.

Becky and Mike and family are around, so good to spend time with them and work on a friendship that has been across seas for so long.

Nate did the dishes last night! So sweet.

My new camera... upgraded a few weeks ago... makes taking indoor pictures so much better.

Ellie says "lucky" for yucky.

Dear Dorcas who watched my children at such an early hour yesterday! Happy anniversary you guys!

Oh, one more thing... peanut butter and pickle sandwiches! (a mother in law that feeds us supper and babysits my children)

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Cherry Crest Farm... where Mia jumped and jumped on these big pillow things all day!
Oh, this fun slide.  Well, Mia and Nate enjoyed it... Ellie not so much.
Strasburg Railroad runs right through the farm.  How neat is that?
Seriously after 3 1/2 hours the girls were still having fun...

Two Years

Two Years, originally uploaded by LydiaJo.

Picture from Ellie's birthday. She was terrified of the candles this year. Called them "Pops". She is scared of anything that pops. Balloons, gum, you name it. Or even somthing that just looks like it could pop. So this picture was taken after she got over the terror. She still refuses to say that she is two.

Last Minute Family Get-Together

Night On The Farm


The picture of Mia and Sonya on the trampoline is so funny to me. I remember Sonya acting right like Mia when she was her age.

A lot of Nate's great Aunts and Uncles were there. Intresting to listen to them talk about years gone by.

I love summer.

Philadelphia Phillies

Nate planned a surprise birthday trip to Philly to catch a game  for my birthday.  He invited Tristan and Dorcas along.  Then he told me about it the next day.  Well maybe not the next day...
The guys reading the map. Not sure that it helped at all!  We left our ride parked at the motel and took public transportation. 
Here I am missing pictures of the Yummy cheesesteaks at Tony Lukes.  While we sat there eating before the game, it started to rain.  A lot of rain.  I was picturing the van in the parking garage. Would have been nice.
So after lots of walking we made it to the game.  Blue skies.
Dorcas had her sideline entertainment along. The food vendors on foot (what do you call them?) were teasing her for it.
We were staying at the Radisson (love that priceline) and it was rather humbling to come sloshing through the lobby late Saturday night.  We got totally soaked on the way home. 
One ball game we will never forget. Thanks Nate for planning it.  Loved it.  And thanks to Tristan and Dorcas for going along.  Good times.
