2009 04 Trip to PA

Click here for pictures

We had a wonderful trip to Pennsylvania... we enjoyed our time with everyone we were able to see. Now that I know I can travel alone with two girls, we will be doing this more often! So if you didn't get to see us, or didn't get to see enough of us, not to worry! Here are a few highlights of our travels... this is by no means everything, it's just what I can remember at the moment!

1) Having to be patted down at airport security because I didn't want them to open our yogurt to be tested... Alyssa was not happy about that.

2) Being completely shocked by the woman at the airport restroom. After making eye contact with me and clearly seeing my double stroller laden with bags and two little girls, she made a bee line for the only large stall!!!!

3) Dealing with Alyssa who threw up just before we landed in Philly.

4) Having Gage, my girlfriend's 4 year old son asking Hannah literally every two minutes our first morning there, "What's your name?"

5) Alyssa startled to tears by the chicken who suddenly stuck its head through the fence at Hillside Farms with Uncle Dan and family.

6) Driving back from Moosic, PA with Hannah's back window down the whole way... Hannah never told mommy it was down and mommy couldn't figure out why the drive was so loud!

7) Arriving at the wrong terminal the day we left and having to walk in the light rain at 5:30 in the morning to the right one... and having to be pulled while going through security to go get a boarding pass for my lap infant.

8) Having our own row in three of the four legs of our flight!

2009 03 Hannah Writes

Hannah has been a very busy little scribe since first writing her name at two years old, and has increasingly shown more and more interest and aptitude in the skill. She has been writing words out phonetically, which can be really funny at times (Uncle Brett's name is spelled: B-R-A-T.) This is a list of rides that she wanted to take her preschool teacher (pictured in the drawing) to ride on at Disneyland. (One of the rides is actually at California Adventure.) As always, with pen and paper at hand, Hannah is ready to write new words as well as practice and refine her old ones. See if you can decipher the rides she's named here.
