Missed some things in September!!!!!

Sometimes it is hard to retroactively post stuff on our blog - but I gotta do it!!!!!  Forgot about our last trip to Pittsburgh before the house went on the market (whole other story and hopefully I will always remember the chaos that ensued before and after this house went on sale) - but we had a great time and celebrated BJ's BIRTHDAY!!!!!  while we were in Pittsburgh.  We had a great night out with Gwen and Paul and Stephanie Krick - no kids!!!!!  Then we celebrated again on his actual birthday driving home - he HAD to stop at McDonalds ;)  (post throwing up a few hours earlier all over my new Escalade door - due to a migraine)

Cute picture of Addie, scary clown

Jersey City Saturdays

Bj is currently studying for his Surgical boards on the weekends so I thought it would be a good idea to get the kids out of the house for a while on Saturdays and enjoy Jersey City.  We love the whole idea of Jersey City - feels much like Pittsburgh and it's so close to NYC without feeling like you are there amidst the craziness.  So I figured why not see what it was like to parallel park my beast of a car every Saturday and maneuver the city with 3 kids in one stroller - it's very realistic!!!  Plus, Addie is SUCH A HAM and I think theater is definitely in her blood.  An acting class seemed to be the perfect fit for her.  It ended up being such a cute class with all children 5 and under.  They made props and acted out storybook each day.  We never got to see the final production as Addie chose her best friend Camille's birthday over the play - but, I get it.  Anyway, it was a great experience and it really was a nice bonding experience with me and the kids.  We took picnic lunches each time and ate at Van Vorst Park and then played on the playground.  It was quite stressful at times with all 3 - but it was worth the trips.

Together at School!

Addie and Harrison are at school together for the first time ever!  They were both so very excited to head to school together that morning.  It's a lot more work getting 2 out of the door with all of their stuff - but it also gets 2 out of the house on those days!!!! Addie and Harrison will go to school together on Tuesdays...
