Well, we have been gallivanting along the east coast this past week. Sorry to have neglected the blog.
Since I am pretty bad about posting anyway, I will tell you about the trip over a few posts, to make for more reading.
We left the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and headed to Maryland, where Zach's grandparents live. Other than being on edge in a totally non-childproof house, it was a very nice time. The kids did very well, even when introduced to family members they either have never met or don't remember.
Their great-grandmother gave them a bit of money to buy a souvenir, and they were thrilled to find umbrellas. They are not normal children.
After our harbor 'tour,' we went to eat at a seafood place. Tristin said he wanted to eat a crab. That is all he would say, "I want to eat a crab." We gave him a bite of crab cake.
True to public meals with children, here are some things that happened during that time - sprite was sprayed in a 3ft radius around Maura, much food dropped, the person with the citrus allergy had a lemon on his plate, and a shoe ended up ON the table.....
This is the smile that Tristin has adopted when told to smile. This was its debut. Also, notice his shoes....
