The plan for this weekend had been to take the kids to Gatlinburg while my husband spends this annual weekend with his brothers in Wisconsin. I started gnashing my teeth again about ten days ago or so, which had me... Continue reading

Whew. I'm enjoying today's half day. This week brought a full schedule. I'm quite sure that the boys couldn't figure out why I was so uptight about them deciding to wrench on the car Monday night (when they had all... Continue reading

We love when Wendy, being our only girl, can bring a friend. Our place slept eight, so these two enjoyed the luxury of having their own place to keep their ice cream and watermelon. Unfortunately, it was not a good... Continue reading

For my husband's birthday on the 28th of March - we selflessly let him make the plans. His idea of a good time was to drive two hours up the road and visit Patriots Point. We girls said - Awesome!... Continue reading

The Sky Wheel was exactly an hour from where we were staying, and we walked that way several times. This is the mile that Mark and I jogged each morning - our finish line being right under the wheel. The... Continue reading
