Wandering Gypsies!







We are sorry we haven't updated the blog lately, but what do you really expect from wondering gypsies? We have already hit Ottawa and Grove City, Ohio on our trek up North. The drive from D.C. to Ohio was made even more exciting with Lily saying "Out...Out...Out" before we had left the shadows of the Washington monument. We did however, make it in 12 hours; 4 hours longer than Stephanie our GPS told us it would take. The 4 hours was well spent stopping at Dunkin Donuts and Cracker Barrel.
In Ottawa, we had the chance to introduce Lily to her grandparents on Jean's side. The boys had a great time riding tractors and the such at Papa Harry's. All of the kids quickly made Gram pay up on her offer of milkshakes and cookies. We all enjoyed a morning at the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum with Kewpee Hamburgers for lunch.
The visit to Grove City has already been a busy one; bouncing between Mark (Jean's brother) and Kim's (Scott's sister) house has been fun. It has been good to see all of the niece and the nephews. We have already hit COSI, which is a huge kids science museum and the Big Splash water park! Thanks to everyone for their hospitality.
Lily is doing well with our new lifestyle, but doesn't much care for dogs yet:-) She loves to look at them from the distance, but not so much up close and personal.
Miss you all and can't wait to see you sooner or later.

Lily is even cuter in person and has quite the personality:) I'm so glad to finally meet her and spend some time with the whole family.
