Hello there! These have been some of the busiest, craziest couple of weeks e-v-e-r! For starters, I am nearly 25 weeks pregnant and definitely in the honeymoon phase. I am way passed the yukky nausea and not terribly uncomfortable yet. That said, I spent the beginning of the summer with barely any A/C in my home, and watched my body swell like nobody’s business. I felt like the challah bread dough I am currently making in the kitchen… you could poke me and it would show your finger print for quite some time. The blog and many other things were somewhat on hold, as I could not sit in my home for any length of time in a chair at the computer. Thank you for your patience. The good news is that we have completed a huge project of putting in an amazing new A/C system, and I have welcomed the few times my toes were just a bit chilly.
We also took a family jaunt up to New Jersey to visit my relatives. Six + hours in the car with our three cuties was actually wonderful! We took the Cape May/Lewes Ferry from Delaware to New Jersey and ate lunch on board. I packed the best sandwiches and fresh food, if I do say so myself.
Then we went to a favorite spot for little ones, Storybook Land. Great for kids up to about 8 years old, there are rides for them, and nursery rhymes, fairytale stories and it is inexpensive and shady! We love it!
On Saturday morning we went to the Six Flags Great Adventure Safari. It is the largest driving safari outside of Africa and a ton of fun for any animal enthusiast!
It was a great couple of days. When we drove home to Virginia Beach on the 4th of July, we picked up some small fireworks on the Eastern Shore (dad was SUPER excited!) for the kids to see at home. They were a hit- and I think all in all it was a great family vacation!
