Palm Trees and Sun- We ain't in Pittsburgh No More

Some friends of ours convinced us to travel South with them, and another family, for the week- to get the heck out of the Burgh and get a little vitamin D from its most natural source. So we took off (after a few minor squabbles)yesterday evening and drove until almost 3 this morning the Sombar kids, barely conscious, at 2:45am, after a very long drive, getting ready to settle into our suite in Charlotte, NC.,

stayed in a nice hotel, then drove another four hours to their beach house. My kids have been looking forward to this road trip since we decided to go and are ga-ga over this most fabulous beginning to their summer vacation. The house has a pool, so after check-in, my three oldest spent hours in the water (Lily didn't even bother changing into a suit- she dove in fully clothed!), doing their best cannonballs and dives.

Dinner was burgers and dogs on the grill, then we all danced around the kitchen to the latest hip-hop grooves (a real sight for sore eyes, let me tell you).

Benjamin lost a tooth a few hours ago, so the tooth fairy better find some cash then get some much-needed shut-eye.

Good night everyone! Lily watching some Disney channel before nodding off

Sethy is too pooped to pop!


About Me

My photo
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Forty-three year-old, mother and staunch advocate of four young children, passionate warrior of truth and self, finding the soul in each day, sharing my struggles and triumphs as I live them. Mostly I do this for me, so my thoughts don't race as much at night as they used to. But I also give this to those of you who need to know, in any or every way, that you are not alone.
