We snuck in one last “Christmas” tradition tonight by driving out to see the Bull Run “Festival of Lights”. (my pictures got a little blurrier when we were moving). We had everyone decked out in their jammies, so that they would easily transfer straight to bed after the  night out.  Despite Sam’ claims of...

What do you do after spending a day inside, consuming sweets and savories and opening gifts at a frenzied pace? You take those kids somewhere to “get the crazies out”! We decided to hit Sport Bounce, out in Loudon for a little post-Christmas outing. The kids and Mike (and even I) had fun climbing,...

This past two days, we’ve been hosting cousin Owen.  He got to hang our wild brood while his daddy worked and his mommy was on a trip.  The cousins had a blast playing with each other.  Owen was a very easy-going toddler.  He pretty much was happy to be swept along with the group...

Going to Cox Farms is one of the kids favorite things to do in the fall. At random times throughout the year they will beg me to go to Cox Farms and I have to explain it’s not open. But finally, fall is here and we got the chance to go this afternoon. I...

We made it out to Clemyjontri Park last week.  It’s a gi-normous park designed to accommodate every kind of child, regardless of disabilities or special needs.  The kids always think it’s a treat to go here, tho it requires explicit directions and instructions before exiting the car (we stay together!  no running off!).  It’s...

How much would you pay for a nap?

Friday June 13, 2008

Apparently, I’m willing to pay $4/gallon. After a fun morning at “our” farm, picking strawberries and what not, we got back to the house around 2:30 with all three chitlins conked out. Sam was out, practically before we pulled out of the parking area, and Adam miraculously transferred from sleeping in his stroller into...
