    Geez, I have been too busy to even see this thread! Our summer started with a trip to MS (Me, four 16 year old girls and a puppy) which included 7 days in a cottage at the lake, a day trip out to Ship Island, a day at the water park, a day at the New Orleans Zoo and a first birthday party!!). Was home for a day or two then my daughter and her family arrived for a weekend. THEN we were surprised with an over night visit from my friend and her family of 10! And the next day I shipped Rachel off to Texas for almost 6 weeks! Now the quiet begins....aww the sounds of silence!

    And as wonderful as that sounds, we are getting ready to have my mom here for two months while she gets both knees replaced!

    Busy and anywhere but home it feels like! Then my daughter guilt trips me by saying I'm on the computer all day Even tho I'm not (and wish I could be some days) but still! Why'd she have to go and say that!

    I wish a trip to CA is in there - but hopefully we still get to see each other that entire weekend in August!! You're penciled in the schedule but I haven't reserved our spot yet - I need to do that!!

    Ok - I'm exhausted - did a few things on the computer (after the kids went to bed and I got my run in!) Now just wish I wasn't so tired that I could stay up to scrap some!! I hope Isaac sleeps better and doesn't think 5:30 is a good time to wake up all the time - that's less than 6 hours from now! EEK! Off to bed! Hopefully I'll be around some tomorrow

    We have been on the go for a long time--probably since the baby has been born!! LOL

    We just got back from 2.5 weeks in PA. I went to a homeschool convention, getting ready for the upcoming school year. We bought season passes to Dorney Park, an amusement park, where we have gone six times already. It was busy this past time in PA, but we'll be back there in two weeks for another three weeks!!

    This weekend we leave for Michigan to visit with his family and introduce them to the baby. They are having a family reunion at Mackinac Island, which I am super excited about. The girls went there for the first time a couple years ago, but Dh and I honeymooned there many years ago. Its a special place to our family and an added perk that the IL's own a condo there!

    I know we will be busy clear until August and then in August we have a military function, my daughter's birthday and a few other things, but mostly we'll be home after that--hopefully!! We are busy and have been busy for a while.
    I can't get photobucket to work.

    Now that sounds like a lot of fun!! I can't wait to hear all about it!! Where are you going for your cruise? My parents just got back from their Alaska cruise and I was excited going through their photos and hearing their stories!!

    So I don't know that this summer is going to be "slow" for us, heh, with the new home, birthday parties (a lot of family has summer birthdays), new baby, out of town guests and the like I don't think I'll sleep until next year!
    Oh wow! I do not know how you did it---moving while pregnant, especially that close to delivering! Bless your heart for doing all that while pregnant. I hope you are able to get some sleep/rest before the baby comes next month!!

    Touring Philadelphia, Gettysburg, Lancaster, Harrisburg---I guess it depends on WHERE in PA you are looking. I love going out to Lancaster, especially Shady Maple. When my IL's visited, they spent the day out in Gettysburg. Another place is visiting Hershey--we did that when DH enlisted at MEPS.

    That's so awesome!! I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Our neighbors were stationed in Hawaii for many years and I love listening to them talk of the island life. I told DH that's where I want him to try for when he re-enlists later this year, that or England!!

    Like seriously, my birthday is in July and I'm counting this guest CT stint as my birthday gift. ^_^
    That's so awesome!! Im so excited for you!! Oh and happy early birthday because I know I'll forget when July rolls around!!

    We are sailing out of San Juan, PR and going to St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and St. Maarten. Very port intensive, but all places we want to go and may not get back to again. We're also flying into San Juan two days early to enjoy the city.

    That's awesome that you might be able to meet up over Christmas!!!

    I really cannot wait to hear about your cruise and see photos!! It sounds like a lot of fun. I have a friend who used to live in St. Maarten and loved looking at her photos that she would post, especially during the winter months when we were freezing cold!!

    Between T-Ball and swim lessons, June has been a blur. I am hoping we can slow down and take at least a small trip sometime in July. My kids start school on August 12!
