Since most of my life is back east I thought I would add (with some gentle prodding by my daughter who shall remain nameless for those of you who don't know her) a slide show of my trip back east with Nat, Emme, Clee, and Drew. The first shot is a car in the parking lot at the Holiday Inn we stayed at in New York it reminded me of one of cars from Cars (the Disney movie) can you believe frost in the middle of July. We had to drive about another 100 miles past Palmyra to find a place to stay since we were unaware of the pageant that they were having in Palmyra. The next portion of pictures are when we were in Palmyra first the Sacred Grove and then the Hill Cumorah. The climb up this hill was horrific and I had my doubts about whether I was going to get down without falling on my rear, (I knew Emme wouldn't have any trouble since she had to stop to wait for me a few times on the way up, I figured she would just have to stay out of my way so I wouldn't crush her on the way down). But lo and behold Natalie had found a way to drive up (I really wish I had known about this before I made the climb up (is my age showing?)). One of the pictures the one that looks like green squares are chairs set up for the pageant later that evening. We did not stay as it had already been a long trip and the kids and Nat just wanted to get home (and we did not have tickets since we didn't know it was happening prior to getting there). Then there are a couple of Drewbee in a guitar box, we also went to the dinosaur park (I can't believe I didn't take any other pictures there (other than a little chipmunk that was entertaining Emme and Drew), What was I thinking?), and a squirrel (at Fiel and Natalie's house). The next pictures are from the Mistic Aquarium, The Beluga whales really seem to like the kids they are real showoffs, the two first pictures of Clee and the penguins. Clee was trying to climb in with them the next one is after we wouldn't let him (Clee seems to draw the fish, etc. to him some how) and then we finished off with a visit to a play ground for the kids look closely at Emme's hair on the last picture, Enjoy. (The music is On The Road Again by Canned Heat one of my absolute all time favorites.)
