Back at it

We recently got back from a two week trip to PA to see our families. Other than the kids getting ear infections and my in-laws getting the flu it was a really good trip. The older ones were bummed that there wasn't any snow, but it did mean we got to be outside for extended periods of time. 

Nate and I took the big kids to Hershey Park. The weather was perfect and we got to stay for about 5 hours. I love going there in the winter. Tickets are only $12, and all the kids rides and a lot of the adult rides are open. 

 We had them all do a few rides together, and then Nate took Asher off to do some of the bigger rides.
 My brother is a math teacher in Virginia, so he also gets a lot of time off in December. My kids LOVE uncle Matty. If he is awake there is at least one kid trying to play with him.
 All of Nate's siblings were at his parents for Christmas. It was noisy, and crowded, and a lot of fun. Asher and Piper really liked being around their cousins. We took them to a nature center one morning. The science and engineering (as well as stubborn and wild) genes run strong in these boys. They both had a lot of fun with the microscopes.
Visiting our families was a great way to spend our holiday break.


  1. So glad we could all be together this Christmas! :)

  2. Christmas was was a GREAT Christmas....I'm ready for round two! Sort of... ! I find it very interesting the kids were so taken with the microscopes/magnifiers at the museum....It was a real favorite. It's hard to believe we didn't get a family photo....but when you consider the logistics of each day it is totally believable.
