...I guess a late blog post is better than no blog post.
We've had a few busy months. I can't even begin to recap it all, so...let's start with our Fall Break vacation. With the boys off school for the entire first week of October, we decided to take a trip to visit Pappy and Grandma at their new home in Canton, Ohio. The 10 hour drive north was actually quite nice. We hit the boring parts in the dark since we left at 2am Friday morning and the boys enjoyed counting tractors harvesting field after field of corn.
On Saturday, we headed to Akron to board the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. The train was WAY late, leaving us plenty of time for photo opportunities. The overcast, chilly weather was a little more than we were expecting, but it made the hot chocolate even better.
After 4 months away from Pappy and Grandma, the boys wasted no time getting back in the swing of things, including Rock-Paper-Scissor matches with Pappy, running around and tackling Grandma, and being spoiled rotten. The train ride took us even further north to Peninsula, where we ate lunch at Winking Lizard Tavern. The food was yummy and Nathan was able to keep tabs of the FSU vs. Virginia game.
After a great weekend, we hit the road again. After a pit stop in Concord, NC to fill our tummies with Razoo's Cajun Cafe, we made it to Atlanta and spent 3 day visiting Aunt Dina and Uncle Luc. Needless to say, we were exhausted by the time we made it home Thursday afternoon; we took the weekend to recover before getting back school and work.
