Hey everyone! I know I haven’t been updating like I would like to, but living with a two year old in the house is a bit more work than I had anticipated. Okay, more than a bit.
What’s new with everyone else? My life is generally the same, besides the fact my mini-me is growing older every day and learning new things for me to help her understand. This takes me away from some other things, such as this blog, but is WELL worth it! Our baby girl (who is not so much a baby anymore) is growing so fast, and it’s difficult for me to keep up at times. Just when you think she has mastered one thing and will stick to it for a while, she is on to learning something new. It keeps me on my toes and always waiting for the new “in thing” to come along and grab her attention for a couple weeks. Of course, the old stuff is still quite popular with her, but learning something new is infinitely more exciting!
I have added an Instagram widget to side of my site for those looking at the desktop version. If you would like to follow, find me at @threehandedmommy on Instagram. You can live my life vicariously through my pictures lol.
We are going to be going on a small trip to my family’s place this coming week. I say small because it’s only four hours away. Four. That is still quite the trip in either case. Yet quite a bit smaller than from New York State to Georgia. Which reminds me…
We recently ventured down to Georgia to see my in-laws. The state of Georgia is quite wonderful. We stopped in NC along the way to see my brother-in-law and his family. Now, NC is great. But when it comes to weather, Georgia has it beat. When I was younger, we traveled to GA for my brother’s graduation from bootcamp. Now, this was some years ago and it makes me feel old just thinking about it. 😛 That being said, I don’t quite remember what the weather was like, but I do remember it was summertime. Going down just a few weeks ago felt like a fresh and exciting new experience. The weather is amazing. It doesn’t feel sticky, humid, or thick. Maybe we were just lucky to be there are just the right time, or maybe we just aren’t as acclimated as the locals to feeling those things. Who knows. But I would definitely visit again in the summer. Anyhoow, while we stayed there for a couple of days, we spent one whole day at the Georgia Aquarium and the Coca-Cola Factory. The aquarium is the largest in the world and has plenty of exhibits to keep you busy for hours! If you have not visited and like to see all sorts of oceanic life, I suggest you pay a visit to this place. There are sharks, fish of all sorts, penguins, beluga whales…the list goes on and on. The Coca-Cola Factory is amazing simply for the fact that you can taste over 100 different flavors of Coca-Cola from around the world! We were especially excited for this and decided to make it our last stop of the night before exiting, just so we could leisurely peruse the flavors and see what other countries created.
I hope to see you follow me on our trip to my family’s this week! I will be posting pictures of our trip on IG as I take them and hopefully tweeting and posting on Facebook and Google+.
I thank all of you who have stuck with me for this long and for any and all continued support in the future!
