End of School, Weekend Visitors and A Grown Up Trip

My sister, nephew and brother-in-law are here visiting for the weekend. My sister surprised us last night with the news that there will be a new addition to the family in February. My girls are very excited and really want to have a girl cousin. This morning we got up and went the aquarium in Baltimore--always an adventure. Especially with a 2 y.o. who wants to run as fast as possible through the wide open spaces. It was Boobah's first trip as well, she was mostly interested in riding the escalator and holding my nephew's hand--obviously money well spent. Here are the girls and I in the rain forest.



Yesterday was PDQs last day of school? Where did the year go? Do I sound old yet?! I went to the end of the year party, the kids were excited and a little sad, as was there teacher. This was her first full year teaching, she had gone to the school herself as a kid and she totally rocks! I will miss her next year even if PDQ doesn't. Part of the reason for my sister visiting is so that she can take the girls back to Ohio for a week with my folks. That means Gman and I get grown up time, alone together, woo-hoo. We're heading out to see one of our favorite bloggers, stop in Williamsburg, VA and then on to Virginia Beach. Ah, peace and quiet. I don't know that we've ever done a road trip just for the fun of it, usually it had a purpose since he was here and I was there. More from the road...

You & your girls are beautiful.
My lil' Kennedy is finishing Kindergarten this year & my son is going off to Junior High. I think I am going through empty nest syndrome already:(

Hard to believe. I'll be chokin' back the tears tomorrow as A 'moves up' to 2nd grade.

What was boobah staring at? Was there a little boy with GUM?
