Daddy's favorite ice cream shop

Yesterday we finished our drive to Pittsburgh but made a very important stop for ice cream! We took Justin to his favorite ice cream shop for Father's day called Sarris. They have a yummy chocolate sauce that they pour on top called hard cap and Justin loves it. The kids had fun walking through the candy shop and picking out a piece to eat later. Everyone slept a little better last night than they did the first night. Julianna had a really hard time and kept asking to go home. :( They both had a great time playing with their cousin Hailey, Grandma, Uncle Jon and Tom and Aunt Carrie.

Great start to our trip!

We woke up early and were on the road an hour before we expected to be! The kids were so well behaved, Justin and I are both in shock! We only had to stop twice for bathroom/food and twice for gas, Julianna stayed dry all day too. There was hardly any whining or crying today. We figured we wouldn't get to the hotel till 7pm or later.... we arrived at 4:30! I hope the last 5 hours of our drive to Pittsburgh tomorrow are as good as they were today. We are headed to the pool for a swim now.

Waterbattle/juicy juice playdate

I am currently on a juicy juice panel so we had a tasting party today. The kids had a blast with water balloons the, slip n' slide and water guns. Then they all enjoyed juicy juice popcicles and icees with juicy juice. So heres a pic of Julianna enjoying her cherry icee and Jayden running from his friend Luke before he got hit with another water balloon. Jayden kept calling the water balloons water bubbles. LOL Julianna had fun with the water guns even though her fingers were to small to make them work.

Last week was a busy week! Jayden attended vacation bible school at a local church and had a great time. They had jump houses a few days as well as a petting zoo one day and trolley rides to get from the parking lot to the buildings. Julianna liked having alone time without Jayden but questioned where he was after we dropped him off everyday. She also loved checking out the big fish tank that they had in the preschool building every day. Here they are after VBS at the playground.

We went to the zoo this past Monday with some friends. Jayden got a seed stick to feed the parakeets in the new exhibit. Julianna fell in love with the Panda Bears. Their home is designed so it's easy to see them at all times. The mother Panda sat in front of the glass eating bamboo and the panda is so large it was easy for Julianna to see that she didn't want to leave! The last two pictures are with some of the friends that we met up at the zoo, Alannah and Aiden. The kids all rode on the train together and we caught Jayden and Alannah holding hands! Alannah is about 18 months older than Jayden and is the girl that all the boys are in love with!

Another trip to the history museum

We went to the museum again this past weekend when they were celebrating some new dinosaurs. Jayden and his friend Luke got to make puppet dinosaurs. Julianna had a blast playing in the science room at the light wall. She was fascinated by the different colored shadows that she was making.
