Delaware, Pennsylvania and Ohio - Oh My!

December 7 - 9th we were back in Wilmington. We enjoyed the Annual Christmas Progressive with our Wilmington friends, stayed one night at the Blanton's, then spent Saturday with the Altman's enjoying Longwood Garden's and the new Children's Garden.

Lily and Will continue to be great buds, as you can see!

One of the funniest moments of the garden's was Lily dipping her fingers into the fountains like it was holy water from church, and preceding to bless not only herself, but Will too : )

Lily's daddy showed her how put her fingers in the fountain. Lily thought this was sooooo cool. When a reserved, banker-type looking toddler arrived at the fountain, Lily attempted to help him get his sleeves up and into the water too : )

Corey and I then went to the Bio-Imaging Christmas party and Lily hung out with Will (and his parents for supervision). She had a blast!!! As you can tell, Mike and Tammy are a pro already with handling 2 little ones!

The next morning we exchanged Christmas presents and dressed Lily and Will in matching monkey clothes yet again! As teenagers, monkey clothes will be harder to come by, but we will find something cute and matchy, and I'm sure they will love it. Ha!
On the 9th, Lily and I dropped Corey off at the airport and then spent a couple of hours at the Philadelphia Please Touch Museum. It was very cool. We look forward to another visit there someday soon! Lily's favorite was the farm where she could pick vegetables and feed the animals (all pretend of course), and the miniature grocery store where she could work the register, push a miniature cart, and select vegetables, stocked items, as well as bakery goods!

The rest of our trip home did not go too smoothly. We faced a cancelled flight when we arrived in Cleveland, leaving Lily and pregnant me with a few over-stuffed and heavy bags for the night! We were both exhausted! We struggled to a cab, hopped over to a Mariott, walked to Denny's for 'breakfast dinner', then laid in bed watching a movie. My little buddy crashed within minutes!The next day we encountered some very thoughtful people who helped us manage gate changes with luggage plus breakfast, and kind people in South Bend who tried to help us get to our car across the icy parking lot. There are very many wonderful people out there!!! [December 7 - 10, 2007]
