a couple of new LOs

description: We spent the morning of Sarah's first fourth of July in Yorktown, Virginia. We watched the parade in the shade of a tree near the veterans band. The Yorktown Fifes and Drums corp was the first parade entrant to go by followed by various veterans and active duty military groups, classic cars, and even Uncle Sam dressed in desert fatigues. Sarah waved to the parade members as they went by.

My LO of the picture of Robin and I together at the Bronx Zoo. It was so cool to be able to meet her in person.

and I got this one finished up
Journaling: July 8th and 9th were days filled with one activity after another. After leaving the hotel on Saturday, we first stopped at Washington’s Crossing to see where General Washington crossed the Delware river to surprise the Hessians in Trenton. Then, we drove into Philadelphia to go to the Franklin Institute. Bryce rode the sky bike, we learned all about how cartoons are made in their special exhibit, and we walked through the giant heart following the path of blood through the heart and lungs. Brenna thought that was especially cool. She only had one major breakdown that day, which was pretty good for her. After that we stopped at Valley Forge to see where the Continental Army camped & Washington’s headquarters.
On Sunday we started the day at Hershey Park’s Chocolate World to learn how they make their chocolate and sample it. Then we drove to Harrisburgh and learned about and made our own kites. We finished that day with a drive to Pittsburgh.

Welcome back! Sorry to hear about the next. Even more sorry to hear Bryce was temporarily lost; I would have had a heart attack! Glad it turned out ok, and it sounds like you survived the trip in relatively good spirits. :)

Fabulous layouts. Love the kit you used with your Robin pic, and Sarah is just adorable in her patriotic duds. :)

Wow...I loveeeeee looking at all the pics and reading about your adventures. I can do anything now after knowing you guys survived sane! And your list of lost items is crazy small. That is awesome!
Glad you are home...love the layouts...and I am still so jealous that you can scrap while he drives. I get too motion sick.
