Rohnin playing with Deez




Beautiful East Coast Driving

 One of our favorite places in PA - Codorus State Park

 Awesome house on the little river

 Love it!

 My artist daughter took a bunch of pictures - I really love this one

 Teaching Deezy to swim....didn't work very well

 Baby not a fan of the water at all

Rolling hills of Maryland

 Love the roads that are covered in trees

 Cute old cottages being restored in MD

 
 Deezy chasing geese at a park in MD

 Haven's favorite restaurant....I never stepped inside and was afraid to eat the food!

 Beautiful house on the bay about 2 miles from our house






Not a cool house in Havre De Grace.....seriously.



Our favorite shooting range.....

 After a while of driving we started noticing that MOST of Maryland was turning into this....no trees and lots of equipment.....






It really is too sad.  We took a lot of these to compare what it will be like in 5 years!

Atlantic City, New Jersey

 We took a trip to Atlantic City with Grandma and Grandpa.  Since daddy and Haven had never been there we wanted to let them see what it was like!  All I could remember from college days was the mall.  Which has changed drastically!

As you can see, one munchkin was excited to go!

 Hitting the beach was not an easy task with a stroller....so after getting stuck a little bit we turned around and headed back to the boardwalk!

 My Haven hanging out on the boardwalk.  It was a very hot day!

 A store called "SUGAR"....and it was all about sugar.  Not the best store for a ROHHAD child! ;)

 The biggest box of NERDS we've ever seen!

 After a change of clothes we're back in business!

 The shore view from inside the mall.

 East or West --- I'll take an East Coast beach any day over a rocky, sharp drop off West Coast ocean!

 Inside the mall they have seating area overlooking the ocean that make you feel like you are sitting on the beach!  It was a very cool change from when I was there last.

 One of the fountains you overlook on the upper level

 Haven hanging at the desert oasis inside the mall.  We had a lot of fun...

Because she's hilarious!

Just because she makes me laugh!!!

Gettysburg with Gma and Gpa

In July (not on the reenactment weekend) we headed to Gettysburg with Grandma and Grandpa.  I have probably been to Gburg 5 billion times in my life - only half the amount of times my mom and dad have been there.  I still love it and am happy to be able to share it with the girls.

We went to a state park near Gettysburg, but still in Maryland.  I can't remember the name now.  But it had vultures and owls and a cool inside museum.  My mom is showing Haven her owl wing span here! :)

Rohnin - not a fan of stuffed turkeys!

 Haven hanging out at an old kitchen set up

 The best restaurant in Gettysburg - The Dobbin Inn.....amazing bread and cool atmosphere!


 My mom and Haven checking the menu for lunch items!

My girl forcing a smile for me as she didn't want to take the picture because people were watching!

 Hanging at the Jenny Wade house.  Haven really loved learning about her.


Little Round Top....one of my favorite areas of the park...and Devil's Den!  But on the other side of the top of the hill was the magnificent Chamberlain.  My dad can't even deny he was awesome!  If you get the chance to visit here you have to go!

So how many of you have been to Gettysburg?  Done one of the ghost tours? Walk the cemetery late late at night? Pretended to do Pickett's Charge and run the entire length of the field to the Angle?

Hanging with Grandma and Grandpa from Utah



 Grandma Sing and Grandpa B-off came to visit in June.  We had a fun Spring/Summer with everyone coming to visit us!

 Rohnin had to start learning to drink from the bottle so I could go back to work.  I was a bit concerned having 12 weeks off with her that she would never use the bottle.  I had Haven in day care by 6 weeks and no issues.

 A day trip with G&G.  Haven showed them where our favorite hang out was - Brooms Blooms Dairy.  Best freshest ice cream ever made!

 We sure do love this place!

 Rohnin thought she'd actually give me a little face time and do some nice photos...

 Even got a smile out of her - only 2 months old here!

 Photo time with G&G.  This is such an adorable photo.  Love the two girls in the middle.

 Of course, Miss Haven just adores her new sister.  She holds her every minute she can.


 My girl growing up....can't believe we're headed to 2nd grade already.....

 While this one has to start learning to hold her head up on her own and sit some day

 Grandpa adoring his newest granddaughter

 Rohnin is thinking....who are these people?

Hi Grandma.....Miss Rohnin as a new little bean.

Grandpa and Grandma took Haven downstairs to work on Dad's Father's Day present.  It was a cool t-shirt with Haven's hand print!
