Fourth & Fifth Day Updates

I thought I would have wireless internet access here but things have changed, so I do not have access to my computer right now. I'm using another one to give a quick update but won't be able to do pictures for a while til' I can access the internet from my computer.

Yesterday we finished up in Pittsburgh and visited some last minute places that are important to us there and then we headed straight to Baltimore to meet up with my sister and her family, and my mother. We shared a bushel of steamed crabs (YUM!!!), corn on the cob, shrimp salad, potato salad, stuffed eggs, and Utz potato chips. My, my, my a total feast!!! The kids swam in the pool and had a blast together and when the sun went down we went to get snowballs. These are a Maryland thing -- very unique the way they are done here. It's not a snowcone, or an icy or like anything else you've had...they are a special Maryland tradition. Anyway, I had one that was dreamsicle with marshmallow cream on top. Deeeee-licious!

We stayed there til' real late and visited with them and had a wonderful time, and then headed to my inlaws in Bowie, MD where we spent the night. This morning I slept in and then got up and walked a few miles and when I got back my mother in law made me breakfast. Now, that's heaven! I'm telling you, that woman ROCKS! She is such a blessing to me.

Casey just arrived by plane shortly ago and now we are all heading up to Carroll County, MD where our previous home and church are. Some folks there are having a gathering for us there tonight. It will be a cookout with probably about 50 or so people. We are also going to visit the old house and some landmarks there that mean something to our family.

In the morning we are getting up and heading to D.C. I'll blog more when I can...not sure of when I'll be on the computer next but if you are curious what we are doing, I twitter about every hour or at least every few hours to just share with friends where we are and what's happenin!

Love to all...
