Gerri's 2nd grade concert :)

Gerri's 2nd grade program was dedicated to all the families in the military, past and present.
She was SO excited about her dad being there to watch.

she is in the middle with the white shirt and blue pants

singing her heart out to God Bless America!

they did signs for this land is your land :)

She had a Great time!! She sang her little heart out :)
She is hard to see as she is in the front row and SO tiny, really shows how small she is compared to her classmates.

busy weekend!

Our checkup in Philly went well, no surprises - which is always a good thing!
I got to meet two of my families, which is always the BEST part!
 We go back in 6 months. Gerri was very excited to tell dr vB that she would see him when she was in 3rd grade :)
Friday was a very long day of travel.
We left Philly at 11:00 and did not get home till 7:30! second longest travel time ever :(
We hit traffic everywhere! it usually takes about 6 hours.
We got home in time to shove pizza down in our mouths and have dessert and spend some time with family while celebrating sweet Nicole's birthday!!

Saturday we were up early to stack wood!!
hubby getting everything ready for us :)

it was a family affair and it took 2 hours to stack 2 cords!!
 we celebrated by going out for chinese food for lunch :)
who doesn't love to draw on the driveway with chalk?

Lots of swinging and hanging around!!

had to swim as well!!

I love how well our kids play together! :)

Philly again!

No room at with Rmh, most hotels booked. Luckily Rmh has several hotels they have room deals with, so we are in center city at the Hilton doubletree and it is beautiful! It was a long hot ride here in a car with no working A/c :(
But we are resting comfortably now :) had an awesome meal in the lobby bistro, just did FaceTime with the family and chilling.
Here is the outside

In the lobby- it is mezmerizing

So worth every penny :)

We see the dr first thing in the am and hope to be in the road by 10!

workshop and diy project :)

for the first time since November Gerri is back to riding the regular bus with Danny and Victoria - and they were all So excited!
Saturday Danny was helping with the Cat Connection yard sale so we went to our favorite place to return some stuff and found it was kids workshop day :)
The girls loved it!!

and were SO proud of their plant holders
and we had to buy plants :)
 Then I saw this and we just HAD to have it:)
yes, a one hour swing set kit :) just had to buy the wood!

we picked out a spot and got to work

once we had it all lined up it came together pretty well, no yelling :)

finishing touches!!
 while we were busy with the swing set, the girls colored their workshop projects and were so sweet and  made us sandwiches :)
I hung them up and the girls were SO excited!!

Finally!! :)
 Danny came home around dinner time and was SO surprised!!!

Grampy watching over them!
