Road Trip

We just got back from Meadville, PA for Uncle John's wedding! Finally after dating Marcy for about 5 years (and he is 40+ years old!) ...he tied the knot! As Mike said in his bestman speech...."John will get married when pig's fly...well, swine flu!" We had a good time at the wedding and visiting with family who we hadn't seen in a long time. Here's a cell phone photo of Caden, Preston and their two cousins who they only get to see about once a year. They all enjoyed swimming at the hotel pool (even though the deck was carpeted and creeped me out.) The Days Inn was definitely in severe need of renovations, but it was the only hotel in Meadville with a pool.

On the way home, we decided to take and extra day and do something fun! We contemplated Niagara Falls but that would have added 4 hours to our trip. Plus, being a holiday weekend, we envisioned traffic jams and we just weren't looking to spend the day in a mess. So, we opted for the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium. It was a nice zoo...not the best we've been to, but the boys had a good time. I'll download more pictures this week. Here's a photo from after the boys walked the entire zoo. Needless to say, they were a little worn out!

When we arrived home, I went straight to look through a pile of email from the past 4 days....specifically searching from one with the subject "Out of IBESR!" luck! Still hoping this month we'll get out and move on to the next step!!

Yep, D and I used to wake up some mornings and say to each other, "I think there's an emailing saying we're out of __________; let's go check." Of course, no email but we'd still say things like that.

I love the line from the best man's speech! Good one!

Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Hopefully you will receive the Out of IBESR letter soon!

I was hoping you were going to say the e-mail was there!

We love to go to the zoo.

LOVE the last photo! Hilarious, esp. Preston's hand trying to hold up his chin. Remember one of the hotels we stayed at for some swim meet where they fed us on the pool was carpeted w/ astroturf. Ew.

Welcome home! I'm glad you had a fun distraction...I echo your sentiments about the email checking....we are SO ready for the news, God!!!
