This is how a lot of the day went. Daniel would run off to check out something.
The kids were flocking around the ducks, sitting on them and having a good time, while us parents hung back and watched. Then this conversation took place:
Steve: Hey Tara, I'll pay you a dollar to go sit on a duck. ::snicker::
Tara: Okay!! ::runs over and sits down::
Steve: Uhhhh....Aimee, do you have a dollar? I didn't think she'd do it.
Aimee: ::laughing:: Yeah. Tara, I'll give you the dollar.
Tara: That's okay, I would have done it for free!
Then all the kiddos. They are a really cute bunch.
We had to leave at some point though, and by the time we got on the road it was 10pm. Luckily, the kids slept pretty much the whole way back to Connecticut. We had such a good time with the Hahns. They are so awesome! We made "plans" to all be back in Texas by the summer of 2012. We hope it works out, because these kids need to grow up together!
Overall, our trip back east was phenomenal. It was a lot of work to travel that far with the kids, but it was definitely worth it. We had a lot of fun with everyone we visited and it was fun to have a vacation.
