We went for a drive up to Gettysburg this Thanksgiving week and nothing puts life in perspective like looking at a battle field where more American life was lost than any other in the civil war. Jackson slept and Joey posed and keV and I kept thinking we needed to look things up on wiki or get more civil war books. Needless to say it was worth the visit and nice to spend time as a family. Which is what I am most grateful for in my life.
We are standing in line to see Santa and Joey iasi excited she can barely control her self! So she dances and twirls she jumps, she makes funny faces. When we finally get to Santa to sit down she is so shy and burying her face in my coat she barely gets the word violin out! This girl...
We headed out on an adventure to the children's museum in Winchester. It turned out super fun, small not crowded, and we didn't have to clean it all up after! Joey loved play Doctor, maybe her future calling and Jackson loved driving the trucks and digging in the dirt, not sure if that is his future calling:) Either way it was fun! Thanks to the Bennions for playing and letting us hitch a ride!
Uncle Todd came out for a visit! So we headed to see the sights! We love when he come because than we have an excuse to be tourists:) we had a beautiful day and I have to say Mt Vernon is up on my list of favorite DC sights! The General was quite an amazing man, an I'm not surprised he was chosen to be the first president of our nation. It was really cool. Oh and it helped that the kids we so well behaved and happy!
Joey rode her first school bus last week! We went on a field trip to Pumpkinville, which Joey kept calling Cokeville! Pretty funny. Anyway she was super excited to go and ride the bus, of course she and Ethan had to sit on the very back row and play "I'm thinking of an animal." and the best part is there were two high school students to each kid so us moms just got to hang out! That must be what is is like to have a nanny:) Sorry about the blur, bus rides are bumpy!
