To Continue with June

In the midst of all our busyness, we celebrated Cody's birthday 32nd Birthday. He had a friend come down from Philadelphia for the weekend to go fishing with him and we had a small family party for him. Good times.

We hadn't ever been to the zoo there, so we made plans with some friends to see it before we left. It was a smaller zoo, but very nice and the weather was perfect that day. I am glad we fit it in before we left.

We also made one final trip to the ocean. My kids love going to the beach. I don't necessarily feel the same about it. I enjoy the actually playing at the beach part, but I dread the cleaning off the kids, loading them into the van, showering them off part of the beach. But knowing this was our last time to the ocean for a while, I managed to look past the work part, and enjoy the moment of playing with our kids at the beach.

Farewell, great Atlantic.

Believe it or not, we still did more in the first couple of weeks of June before the move. . .

It's the never ending story.

It is amazing where a month has brought us. We have been busy, busy, busy, getting ready for our move, moving, and then unmoving into our new home in Alabama. And on top of all that, we had a long list of things to we wanted to do before we left Virginia and had to do some major hanging out with friends before we left. . .because moving is a lonely affair.

So I'll start where we left off. . . the beginning of June. I'll spare you the details of us getting ready for the move, because it just involves organizing and dejunking and some major stressing about some scratches in the d***ed hardwood floor (that's right, I just pseudo-cursed on my blog because that is how I feel about that particular hardwood floor) and none of that is particularly interesting.

The interesting part (at least to me) is the stuff we crammed into our final days in P-town (for the record, I have lived in four p-towns, and up until two weeks ago, I have always lived in a P-town).

After staring at this paddle boat ferry for a year, we finally took the kiddos on it for a short round trip. It was a beautiful evening and a nice way to spend a half an hour.

Now on to bigger and better and more expensive fun:

We had good times. What more is there to say?

There is still more, lots more, to tell about our June fun.
