Yes, we're alive! My apologies, especially to Tanja, for leaving everyone hanging for weeks and weeks on end. After traveling over 3000 miles, we finally made it to New York and back. Oh, what a summer it has been!
You know, when Jason left for NY in March, I remember feeling kind of sorry for the kids. I was concerned that they would miss out on a lot of experiences since I couldn't take them everywhere all on my own.
Well, I needn't have worried. We haven't been everywhere, but it just about feels like it. Thanks to the magnificent love and support of family and friends, we've had a glorious summer. I know that it will take me weeks if not months to gradually catch up and share our adventures, so in the meantime, let me post a few pictures from before our journey started.
In Lincoln, Nebraska with NomiAnn and Papa Kay:
|Three cheers for the grand-favorites!|
|Talia catching apples at the Lincoln Children's Museum.|
|Now those are truly Lincoln logs!|
|Brooklyn, our very own prairie dog.|
|Talia and Eli make a splash.|
|Annika found a happy place of her very own.|
|Can you figure out who's who?|
At the OPPD Arboretum:
|It's great to be eight.|
|Catching up with Grandpa.|
|Still the craziest hair in the family.|
|Eli senjoys his stroller perch.|
|Whatcha smokin' Brooklyn?|
|Has anybody seen Talia?|
|And last but not least, Talia with all her joie de vivre.|
