Palo Duro Canyon

You might be saying to yourself, there was a Philly Part 1, but not part 2. Yes that's correct. Its too late and I don't feel like it now. :) So, last weekend we drove to Palo Duron Canyon in Texas and had a great time! Its about a 4 hour drive from us, very doable with a dvd player. We stayed in a quaint cabin with two rooms so the big kids stayed in one room and Catherine stayed with us. We were was snug, i'll say that. Perfect cool weather and waking up with coffee a view of the canyon and john playing his guitar was quite nice.

Philadelphia Trip Part 1

We took our annual trip to Philadelphia last week and decided to throw a big combined birthday party for Starry, my three year old neice and Isaiah. We reserved a spot at a park. We check the weather. Forecast called for rain the afternoon. We thought we were golden. that is until the torrential downpour of rain came. Luckily the mosquitos were already biting me and the bees were hovering over our strawberries and we moved into a enclosed shelter at the park. The kids nonetheless, had a blast playing in the rain. Some of my favorite pics are of Starry looking at Isaiah in bewilderment at his face. She just can't understand why he has smeared the cake over his entire face. You'll also notice she does not have one drop of icing on her face. I think its an age thing....and well a boy thing.
