I'm Baaacck!

I know, I know you all really truly missed me. The trip went over surprisingly well, the babies handled the drive to Philadelphia amazingly well (we left at 5 a.m. though). The most we paid for gas was $4.04 a gallon and we got $50 in Exxon gift gas cards from one of the hotels we stayed at. There are a few stories to tell, none all that great but there are also loads and loads of laundry to do so I should probably see to that before I write to indepth a blog.

I will try and post pictures of the twins soon. They had there first pool experience yesterday and that was alot of fun. They both seemed to enjoy the water and it didn't seem so hot in the pool. We also took them on their first hike this past weekend, to the top of Sharp Top at the Peaks of Otter. I carried Bailey in a carrier and Ward carried Coop. It took me an hour and 13 minutes to reach the top, not my best time ever but I felt pretty good about it because I had a lot of naysayers saying I wouldn't be able to carry her to the top and I did. We also visited Appomattox, Gettysburg, Independence Hall, The National Achives, the Capital, and tons of monuments and memorials so it was a pretty educational trip all in all.

I had every intention of blogging a few times on our trip but every day was pretty jam packed and I am more tired now than I was before we left on our trip as I figured might happen.

In other news I started running today for the first time. It was very hot and I didn't get very far but beginning is half the battle for me. Thanks for running with me Lucy.
