Today we borrowed a friend's canoe and went out at Woodcock dam. It was perfect weather kind of overcast and a nice breeze. Jon thinks if we ever go to move home he would like a boat but Zack and I agree we would like a canoe first for the exercise!

Today we took the kids out on Pymatuning Lake on a pontoon boat it was very relaxing! Jon let the kids fish but they didn't have much luck but they did like to drive...

Cedar Point

Today my Dad, cousin Lori, Kevin, Jon and I went to the biggest roller coaster park in the world! We grew up at this park and we still can't get enough of the hair raising excitement! The boys went with Grandpa Ed to the beach and they had a great time!

This has been a very difficult trip. Our cat Joey who we have had since a week before our wedding 11 years ago had to be put to sleep today. He had just recently been diagnosed with heart failure but we had him on meds and he seem to be getting better but it didn't last long. We had two of our very good friends Christine and Marcey come in daily to see the cats but unfortunately his heart was too far gone. I cannot express the gratitude we have for Marcey and Christine they were so wonderful to us! The boys have had to learn a lot about death this trip but I think being in PA with their cousins is serving as a great distraction.

Julie Jacobson!!!!!!!!!!

Our very good friends received a wonderful gift today... A baby girl they did not find out what they were having and they have a sweet beautiful boy Nathan who is almost 4 already, so Julie makes a perfect addition.

Our Nana

Our Nana went to heaven today... She was a wonderful women who was very loved. She was 87 and thankfully went very peacefully in her sleep. March 11 1921 - July 9 2008

Travel Shots

Well we are getting a lot closer to a referral so we decided while we were in Pennsylvania to get our travel shots because it seems to be a little cheaper here and because my mother in law will be traveling with us and so we all got our shots together. The nurse and doctor were very informative and nice but still, OUCH!

Petting Zoo

We took the kids to the Deer Park today; they got to feed lots of different animals and ride a train. This was fun but we are not big fans of animals out of their natural habbitat and they had tigers and leopards and many other exotic animals that were not in very nce enclosures. Probably will not go back!

We have been geocaching a lot during this visit: at the Nature Trail, at the beach, at Presquale. The kids love finding their little treasures. The one we found at the beach had a Geo bug in it that the mission is to get to Georgia so we figure we will get it a little closer on our way to NC. It is a whole different world here compared to NM! Lots of huge trees and green grass and humidity!

All Stars

Since we have been home we have watched a lot of baseball! My nephew Jake and his two cousins all in different age groups have been playing in an All Star Tournament so that means we can watch a differant game just about every night! All three teams are doing really well and 2 have not lost yet in the double elimination tournament and one has lost one. This means more baseball, and we love it !
