Back in Maryland


We made it back to Maryland safe and sound. It was a long 4 days in the road. But I'm so proud of us because we fit 6 people and our stuff into Fern Tree the van. Oh, and a dog and her stuff too. Which was bulky. Next time I'm taking the travel dog crate that is soft. If there is a next time that is.

I'm trying to get back into the habit of blogging every day so you'll have to forgive me if these posts are a little sparse/travel log-ish for awhile.

Yesterday I took my dad to the airport and got my car fixed. It squealed almost the whole way home. Apparently the new belt I had put in it before we left had bad tension and it broke one of the pullies. We also went to the library and signed everyone, including Flower, for the summer reading program.

Can I just say I love having Flower with us? Seriously, I need a nice helpful 15 year old of my own. :) Juice and I were able to go out on a date last night (to Target for soap and m&ms and then to my friend's house to fix her computer) and it was fun just to be us. We didn't have to worry about getting anyone out of the car or herd people around the store. It was nice. So yay for Flower and all her help!

Today we met up with a lot of other Maryland mommy bloggers in a park about 40 minutes from here. My friend Lolli and her son AJ came along. It was fun to see everyone in person, although I don't know if any of them read this. Mostly Lolli knows them. It was nice to have some adult conversation and Butterfly played really well at the park.

Professor has decided that he can take 4-6 steps in a row! Both the boys had their first steps in Utah but just today Professor is starting to walk more and more. It's only a matter of time before he's off running!

See ya tomorrow!



  1. I am SO glad that you are back. It was fun to see you yesterday! AJ asked me if we were going to the petting zoo TODAY?? He was really sad that we didn't end up going.

  2. oh my ... 2 boys walking almost at the same time
    boy are you going to busy!!!

    glad you all made it back safe and sound

    I signed up my kids for the summer reading program too. It's been great. They love reporting on what they read and I've been so surprised by what K is able to recall from the books. Can't wait to hear about Butterfly's progress!
