And we're off!

Well, in just about 30 hours! Our plan is to be on the road hopefully by 5:30am on Tuesday morning. We'll have no email after tonight so we'll post again and hopefully have some pictures to share once we get settled in up in New York!

Happy Anniversary to us!

Wow! It's been 4 years already! It's hard to believe that Ben and I have known each other for 10 years this year... it has gone by so quickly.

This morning was nice and relaxing. Ben didn't have to go to work until noon so we slept in a little and then had breakfast together. Owen had his 6 month check up today (He is getting huge... 19 lbs 12 ounces, 27 inches). Ben was able to go with us which was nice except we had some difficulty on the way to the appointment. I decided that it would be nice to get some coffee so we drove to the Dunkin Donuts- on the way, a car 2 in front of me decided to turn suddenly so the car in front of me stopped short- I, therefore, stopped short- Ben, however, in the car behind us did not stop so short... until he hit the back of my car. Everyone was buckled and is fine... I am so glad that it was Ben that hit us though and not someone else. That makes him 2 for 2 with my car! Maddie was pretty funny-- she said "Whaaat was that" and "the car moved Maddie's head".

After Owen's appointment Ben had to stay at work so the kids and I took our lunch to the playground and then we went on the merry-go-round. Now we just finished a yummy dinner of nachos at home since we're trying to eat everything in the house before Tuesday. We may head out for some ice cream for a celebratory dessert though.

A big congratulations to Ben (and Charlie) for finishing residency! Only 4 days left here in Virginia- next time we post we'll be official residents of New York!

Also we want to send lots of warm wishes to Doug and Kristi- wishing you a speedy recovery!

Bubbles, Baseball, Boxes and Babies!

We are quickly winding down our time here in Virginia. In fact, we are packing up our POD this weekend and then living with just the minimal necessities for our last 2 weeks here. So, this will be our last post for quite some time. When we post again we will be in our new house in Rochester!!! Here are some of the latest pictures for your viewing pleasure! We will post again in a few weeks- wish us luck with our fast approaching move!

Boxes everywhere...

And last, but certainly not least, we want to send out a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Pam, Charlie and Big Brother David- they finally welcomed baby Shaun Scott Wicks this evening at 6:21pm!!! He weighed in at 7 lbs 15 oz. Congrats again guys and good luck with your upcoming move!
