The American Museum of Art

 We took a trip to the American Art Museum today!  Aidan went to the pool with a friend so it was just the four of us.  I had never been to this museum before but it was great!  Another museum that is a little of off the beaten path and was pretty empty.  The art was great - the kids really liked the modern art area and the atrium with the snack bar!!!

Chocolate Drip Cake

I've taken a few weeks off but I had an order that I couldn't refuse - also was kind of sad to not eat it all myself!!

Another beautiful night at Longbridge for practice!  We'll be dreaming about warm summer evenings in October when we're freezing and it's pitch black at 6 pm!

Snow Much Fun!

We had so  much fun at our little cabin in the woods this week!!  I would go back there in a heartbeat!!  Pet friendly, hot tub, grill, nice kitchen and plenty of beds!!  It is right by a small ski lift too - if we were so inclined to try to make the drive in the winter!!!

Seneca Rocks - West Virginia Day 5

This morning was the day that we had reserved for climbing Seneca Rocks.  It was good to have had an easy day yesterday because it was a bit of a hike!  It wasn't that long - only a mile and a quarter up to the top but there was 1,000 foot elevation gain which made it pretty steep in some areas!!  The kids did a great job - especially Declan who did not complain even once!!  We brought lunch with us and at sandwiches overlooking the beautiful view from the overlook.  We explored a bit at the top and then headed on back down.  There was a historic site with a house and a garden at the base of the rocks that we explored once we were finished with the hike and then we went over and toured the science center as well - a nice end to the walk - and bathrooms as well!!
