California or Bust!!!!

Well, we did it. We are now settled into our place back in sunny California! If you want to know what it was like traveling 3000 miles being 7 months pregnant, with a 4 and 2 year old, plus John( hee hee) all I can say is use your imagination!! I definitely think I deserve the mother of the year award for that trip alone! To tell you the truth our girls were practically angels considering being in the car for 9 hours at a time, and of course we have much thanks to give the portable DVD player. I must say that using public restrooms from Virgina to California was the biggest nightmare for me. Oh, I can't even think about it! Anyway, putting that aside, we were able to see some really beautiful country and some really neat places. Our camera was so dumb on the trip so we really didn't get that many great pics, but we got a lot of good footage on our video camera. I'm going to post the few pics we did get. We had a few places we went before we left Virgina that we wanted to get on here, so we hope you enjoy. Then I'll post "The Trip". You know I have really thought seriously about pushing the delete button on this entire blog thing. I know it is suppose to be fun, but I have felt this pressure in the back of my mind to get this done. So, I decided to keep plugging along and hope that all our family and friends will be patient with me. How does everyone keep up?? I would love to know your secret!!

Welcome Back! We are excited for you guys. Good luck with the rest of unpacking and getting ready for baby girl #3. My blog motivation are my two sisters that live out of state and want to keep up with everything we and the boys are up to... but in the same breath, if it makes you crazy than don't do it. You have enough to do and worry about right now. Don't add guilt to the list, it's not worth it.

Hey Angie! I blog because I don't do any type of scrapbooking. It is my digital scrapbook. I am planning on making it a book every year with Blurb.com.

I wouldn't worry about it right now either. Just relax and enjoy the California sun. JEALOUS

I miss you lots!

Glad you're back in CA. I can't believe you drove with two all the way from Virginia! We flew to Virginia last fall and almost wanted to leave Gunner in Texas it was so painful. I try to keep up on my posts so my mom and family can see pics of our kids, but I have just started a couple months ago so I don't know how I will keep it up in the future. Good luck with #3. We just had our third- little boy- and so far it has been great!

Glad you guys made it to California. I feel your pain about the bathrooms....scary, but when you are desperate, you'd go anywhere, right :) When is your due date? Keep up with the blogging. I know it is a pain, but it is great to keep updated on how everyone is doing. Don't feel pressured to update it all the time. It's just too hard sometimes.

Well for starters, by not being pregnant and tired. Also, by posting once a month or so!
