We are Home

HELLO!!!! We had a fabulous vacation in Pennsylvania. We were so busy that I never even turned on my computer until Tuesday.  I decided to wait until we were home before trying to put up a post about the trip.  I have quite a recap for you but I am going to do it in segments as to not overload you with to many photos in one shot.  We arrived home last night around 9 PM – boy did I miss my house.  I also missed my big thick comfy bed.  Vacations are great but man, I do love my home. 

Ok here we go with PA Trip Segment 1.

We hit the road around 11 on Wednesday.  D was all set with his movies and headphones.

Charlie drove the entire trip.

Mommy enjoyed the ride.  I read a magazine, listened to music, dozed off for a few – it was actually not that bad.  Towards the end D was a bit antsy and so was I.  We arrived at Charlie’s Aunt and Uncle’s house around 9 PM.  We unloaded the truck, visited for a few and then hit the hay.

In the AM I ventured out for a run.  Let me tell you, PA is nothing but hills – STEEP HILLS!!!!  Nothing back home compares to the hills that I tackled on my runs while we were on vacation. I ran 4 times while we were there and the other mornings I went to the gym.  Needless to say I got in some good hill training. 

Charlie took us by the house that he lived in when he was born.  Almost all the houses are made of brick and rather close together.

Thursday we had the rehearsal for the wedding.  D made friends with the flower girl right from the start.

They were very cute together.

Friday was the wedding.  D looked so handsome in his tux.

We went to a mall on Thursday and I fell in love with this dress at Banana Republic. Since I have a hard time finding dresses that fit, I of course I had to buy it and wear it to the wedding.

D looking all grown up. He could not wait to put that tuxedo on and he did not want to take it off either.

D strutted down the isle and was not nervous at all.  Both kiddos did a great job.

The bride looked gorgeous.

This is my favorite photograph of these two – way too cute. My hubs really knows how to work the camera.

The bubbles were fun except when D dumped a bottle onto my feet.

wd5

I am pretty sure he was exhausted by this time.

When we got to the car to drive to the reception he passed out within seconds.

We stayed at the reception until D started to fall apart at the seams.  It was 3 late nights in a row and the little muffin had had enough.

Congratulations Mark & Jackie.

Stay tuned for more vacation details.  Right now I am off to watch movies with Charlie.

Sammie,
Glad you made it back home. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful trip. Both you and D looked so nice all dressed up, and the wedding looked beautiful.

Glad you got in some good hill running, and I'm jealous you can read in the car. Makes me puke just looking at a map. :)

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
