Our Trip To Philly

Kevin and I just got back from a wonderful trip to Philadelphia! Kevin went for a conference and I went for the shopping! We visited Independence Hall (pictured above). I just got goose bumps thinking about the history of that building - we saw the chair that George Washington sat in as he presided over the Second Continental Congress! What really struck me as we listened to our tour guide was the amount of arguing and fighting that went on to form our nation. It took a long time for these men to reach many compromises. It makes me think about how frustrated I get with our politicians from time to time...

We also saw the Liberty Bell (or, as Drew calls it, the "Bell of Liberty") and took a really cool tour of the city. But, most importantly, we had several really great, romantic, fancy schmancy meals ALONE!! We're already planning our next trip...

Drew's Birthday

Can you believe it? My baby just turned 7 years old! I guess it's a "mom thing", but I think about the day he was born every year on this day. My water broke at 3:00 in the morning and he arrived at 8:45 the next night. This kid was hard work, but so worth it! Just look at him - he's so kind and creative and imaginative (and the most handsome Dracula I've ever seen!). I really love being his mom. I listen so carefully to what he says these days because he can really say the funniest things! His dad and I gave him a Star Wars Death Star Transformer for his birthday, which he had already seen in a toy catalog. He's really into checking out the prices of things these days so he can see if he has enough money saved up. Anyway... he kept telling everyone how expensive his birthday gift was! He was so excited that he got something that cost $49.99! If he only knew...

Just Blogging Along

Hi there. I thought I would try and keep a blog for our family to let you know what's going on with the boys - because, let's just face it, no one really cares about what's going on with me and Kevin!

I'll try and add current pictures every week because it's just been amazing to me how fast they change and grow.
