Congratulations Josh!

"Our Group of Guys"
We had a GREAT time hanging out with them and their families, and will be great friends for years to come

Late post, but yay and hooray for Josh for graduating from school, again! So proud of him! We are officially done with being "students" and can move on to our next chapter in life! But unfortunately, that also means that are time in New York has come to an end...sniff, sniff. A year in the Big Apple went just too fast! Ahh, New York, you will be greatly missed, and though it was just 365 days, the city that never sleeps will always have a place in my crazy heart.

So I have waaaay to many posts to catch up on! We had a incredibly busy and exciting and fun last month! And I have so many pictures that I would love to post about our last Hoo-Rah in New York. But that will have to wait...but it will be worth it. You know it.

But guess where I am right now? We have began our road trip home. We sold most of our belongings in NY, packed all that we could into a mini van, and are on our way back to where we came from. Here we are taking a break at our first stop, Rochester, NY. The hotel had free WiFi and I decided to take advantage. So just letting you know you will hear about our adventures very soon, but I am very tired and putt-putting on 5 hours of sleep after a crazy weekend of moving...And I think I am going to sleep. But please stay tuned...

Gettysburg Trip

Yucky weather!
Jesse was hiding from the cold and the wind!
But what a pretty drive...

Funny story about our bright yellow, gold rental car: We were just driving down Amsterdam Avenue near our apartment and an elderly man jumps out into the street trying to "flag" us down. He thought the car was a taxi cab! Josh and I had a good laugh. Such a "beautiful" color, isn't it? It's not TRUE taxi yellow, but I can see if were are an elderly person and your eyesight wasn't 100% it could definitely look like a taxi:) It definitely made an impression. I guess you had to see it in person. In fact Jesse still talks about this car. It was his "favorite".

This spring we decided to visit Gettysburg on our second trip to PA. Very cool place, in both senses of the word. We wanted to jump out of the car during our audio tour to see the cool sites, but at the same time wanted to stay in our car because it was so cold outside!

My Muddy Buddy!

"Wait, how did I get in here. Mom and Dad don't even know... Hmmm...wait...nope...I think I'm stuck."

"Hey, somebody, help me..." (laughing in the back ground, not from his Mom, of course;)

"Never fear, Daddy to the Rescue..." Oh, Daddy, you look so tough in that leather jacket of yours.

"What was I thinking going into freezing cold muddy water, and ruining the new shoes Mom just got for me, I mean JUST BARELY got them."

"Hope you learned your lesson about dirty New York mud, buddy."

Trip to D.C.

This is how much it rained!
The Potomac River flooded and the walking paths around the Tidal Basin were under water!

Here is glimpse of our trip early this spring to D.C. Just barely missed the Cherry Blossoms Festival. It was rainy all four days we were there but that did not stop us! We went to 6 museums, the National Aquarium (which was pretty much the smallest aquarium I have ever been to, but we will still count it), the old Post Office Bell Tower (Jesse has a peculiar/cute obsession with bells), and ALL the National Monuments! Take that rain! Pretty good efficiency for parents of a three-year-old. Yes, we're getting good practice for future family vacations!
