Fourth of July

The monkeys spent a few days over the 4th of July at Mia and Papa's house in Savannah. 

We also visited the Expert's family and grandparents in St. Simon's Island.

This was the first car trip where I did not want to throw myself out of the car and onto the highway.  The kids were fabulous travellers this time.

As long as Stella had her blanket and her "fancy shoes" and James had his coloring book, we were golden.  Not to say there were no rough patches in the car, but the times have changed (for the better!) with the travelling.

The kids are doing great in the pool now.  We are scheduled to get some swimming lessons brewing. James obtained the nickname of "Captain Careful" in the water... whereas, Stella... gotta watch her or she will jump right in.  The child is fearless.

Every day gets more awesome with the kids. 

There were some times where I thought having kids was ridiculous... because it was SO HARD and tiring. I still do not appreciate a 6:30 am wake-up call (every single day) - but that's part of the reason triathlon training makes sense.
