We had an amazing time in New York City. I would love to go again someday, but I have to admit it is nice walking down the street and not touching anyone. There is so many people there. My kids are not invited to go there. They would disappear in the crowd and I would never see them again. There also is no grass anywhere besides Central Park. All you see are buildings and concrete. I would never own a car either if I lived there. People are crazy drivers. We get upset if someone cuts you off here. In New York there are no lines on the street, so a one lane road has 3 rows of cars trying to go down it-Its nuts! The subway is awesome. Its like an amusement ride. Next time we go I am skipping all the tourist places like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Empire State building. In these places you literally stand in line to get to stand in another line. My plan next time is to eat out all day, see a show at night, and then run around Central Park the next morning. They have the best food. We ate in Little Italy and my life was complete. The food was so good! I could eat there every night. They also have the best cheesecake and pizza there too. Its a good thing we walked so much or I would have gained 100 lbs. I would recommed seeing Wicked or any Broadway show for that matter. It was so much fun I cant even describe it-so I won't. If you really want to know about my New York experience-call me.

This is for you KellyAnn. I am finally updating. I've been kind of busy lately and this has been in the back of mind. But we went and had our family pictures done. Afterwards I am reminded as to why we don't do them very often. Ms.Joe is emotional, Stryd is a typical kid that doesn't want to hold still and Brod was himself. Thank heaven's for editing-otherwise it would have been a disaster. But hope you enjoy.

It is finally getting hot enough to set up the slip and slide. The kids had a blast. They come up with their own ways of sliding. Brody jumps, Joe trips, and Stryder just runs the whole length. I would show them the correct form of slip and sliding, but that would require me to get in my swimsuit and throw myself in freezing cold water. It's not that hot!

Jo loves to play games! Her favorite lately is Hide and Seek. She is really good. She'll hide under blankets and won't move a muscle or even breathe. Other times she crawls behind the clothes in our closet and covers herself up. It would take me forever to find her. I actually am looking too! But today-Stryder was playing and he is a terrible hider. When I call out-"where are you?" He laughs or says "In here!" It drives Jo crazy. She is always shushing him or telling him to be quiet. The game doesn't last very long. Stryder always give away their hiding place when he busts out at you.
