First family outing

First family outing, originally uploaded by AmagoMundi.

Yesterday we went down the hill to Southern Village to have a picnic
and listen to some fine free form blues jazz jamming. We watched the
crazy dancers and had an ice cream for dessert. It was grand,
notwithstanding the toddler-daddy-based blip at the very end.

It looks big cause it is big

Benny and I took a walk around our new neighborhood today after
dinner. We haven't told Momma yet that we saw this really beautiful
centipede walking around our front yard hunting ants. Later we saw a
deer. Then, on our way home, we saw a large spider lose a death match
with an ever larger black wasp. Life in the country. It's exciting.

We made it to the Ohio West Virginia border last night at midnight,
having left South Bend at 3:36. We stayed at a brand new Microtel and
didn't have a bad night. The boys mercifully slept in until 8:30. Now
we are having a "continental" breakfast in our room before heading

Our favorite travel plaza in Ohio. I was standing in line waiting for
my chicken sandwich, looking at my phone, and this dude walks by and
says, "Don't believe everything you read."

Here we go!

Monday, May 24, 2010


So, after a month of packing and a week of really really packing, we are just about ready for the moving van tomorrow morning. We'll be spending tomorrow night at our good friends' house (thanks, Kara and Jim and Megan and Seamus!) and then Wednesday will see us on the road to Chapel Hill. It's a twelve hour drive so we'll take it easy (as easy as you can with two kids under 3) and drive as far as we can the first day and hope to make it home (yes, home!) on Thursday afternoon/evening. It's been an emotional day today, our last day in our beloved (now former) home. I can't believe we're leaving. And I can't wait to see what our life will be like in North Carolina. Bring it on!

Stuff My Kids Ruined

This is the best blog I've seen in awhile. What a great idea!

So far we haven't seen anything quite as bad as some of these examples. But it's only a matter of time...

Benny has literally spent the last hour playing in that small puddle
with two sticks and a leaf.
