Road Trip


We went on a mini-vacation/road trip this weekend (just Friday & Saturday, which was perfect for a day to recover on Sunday).  Our Mother's Day present for Matt's Mom was a visit to her hometown (she lived there until she was 5 and her parents grew up & retired there) and the kids had a lot of fun exploring alongside Grandma.  Then, we headed to another city and visited a lot of great places (all recommended by our dear friend Nellie).  It was awesome!  We saw animals, fed ducks & geese, ate some yummy burgers, visited the amusement park (Jack rode his first roller coaster with Grandma), and just had a great time together.  We were not without injury though...Liv fell and hurt her knee pretty badly (the swelling was crazy) and Jack had a stomach issue (to say the least) on the way to lunch (we told EJ to watch out so she stayed healthy).  I'm still going to say the good outweighed the bad big time!

We have yet to "do" rides minus a few merry-go-rounds. Cecilia pointed to the pic this AM and said look mom, "those sisters are doing rides, I want to!" Looks like you have good influence.

i like how the kids are smiling in all the pics. Esp the elevated swings - that cracks me up just looking at their expressions!

It looks like you guys had SO much fun! Aside from some minor{okay, kind of major} set backs! ;) I'm so glad my home-town roots were able to be of value to your great adventure! My jaw literally dropped when I saw the pic of EJ & Liv on the swings ride! That ride scares me to death... those girls are fearless!! I haven't been on the Zippin' Pippin' yet, so I think I'm going to have to give that a try sometime soon!
