A slice of Americana...

I'm on vacation and loving relaxing in South Carolina. Here's what we've done so far: -resting!

-went to a High School Band Competition! If you know me you know that I love anything musical and with lines...even though it was a little different chasing my 19 month old the whole time, it was a great experience!

-playing games! One of my favorite things to do on vacation...I could stay up all night if I'm winning and have no problem calling it a night if I'm losing...yes, I'm a little competitive!

-went to my 9 year old nephew's football playoff game. He made it to the Championship game and we were there to cheer him on. Adriah ( my four year old) took the role of cheerleading very seriously. She would color for a few minutes then get inspired to cheer "F- double O-T-B-A-Double L". Her hips were swinging and the parents in the stands thought it was a adorable!

-doing "homework" with my daughter. Because we're missing pre-school for the next couple of weeks I brought "homework" from her teachers and a workbook to help us stay focused while away. The letters "E, F, G" are very important and I don't want her to miss them!

-went to Chick-Fil-A to play on the kids equipment and have chicken and biscuits...Loved it! Have you been to the South and tried this fast food restaurant? I'm not a fast food girl and even I love it! We found a great clip on You Tube about this restaurant click here to see it! It's a great restaurant...Adriah and Leyton were delighted to be given free balloons while eating!

-went on a ton of running around errands...WE HAVE EMBRACED BEING SOCCOR MOM's! with three kids who need to be anywhere at all different times the car has become our friend. It makes me think twice about having a DVD player in our next car! It may be very helpful!

-having dinners with family. Matt's parents live across the street so while Grandpa Tony is in Italy, every night we get to see Grandma for dinner. It's been lovely! Her and Adriah have been working on a animal sewing project together. So far, we have an adorable little elephant named "Ainsley"and a very cute giraffe names "Ollie!"

We're having a wonderful time. I will upload pictures but I haven't got around to it yet! More to come!
