Christmas With Grampy

We had a wonderful Christmas at my dad's house.  Here are a couple pics from Christmas morning.

Katherine Wanted Snow

Kat wanted to see snow and she certainly had her wish granted.  We got up to my dad's house in Massachusetts and there was about 18 inches of snow on the ground.  It was the perfect consistency for building snowmen and making snowballs.  Here are a few pics from us playing in the snow.

The Big Apple!

The drive to New York was a dramatic comparision with our drive to Philly.  Picture perfect in every way.  The only slowdown was 15-20 minutes getting through the Lincoln Tunnel.  It has been wonderful thus far in the city.  We got to meet up with our friends that recently moved away from Florida to New York.  Went ice skating in Bryant Park, had a snowball fight in Central Park, visited the fabric mecca Mood Fabrics, and to top it all off a private tour of Sirius Satellite Radio with the Producer of the Busted Halo Show.  Here are a few pics of the highlights.

What a long day in the car.  What should have been a nice and easy 7 hour drive turned in to a horrible 9 hour fight with traffic.  Everything was going great until 60 miles or so outside of Washington DC.  Then it all went bad.  Bumper to bumper and stop and go for the next 3 hours.  We were so glad to finally make it to our hotel in Philly.  The cold weather finally hit us with a vengeance.  It was in the teens on Saturday night and warmed up to the high 20's on Sunday morning.  Sunday morning was an amazing time.  We got to visit the Liberty Bell and pretty much got a private tour of Independence Hall.  I am getting goosebumps thinking about being in this historic place.

Surprise for Katherine

Santa delivered a letter to Katherine last night.  He knew that she was going to be away from home for Christmas and surprised her with some spending money for her trip to Philly and New York.

First Stop Fayetteville

After 8 hours of driving we decided that it was time to stop.  We put on around 500 miles today and the gang is having a great time, even Pepper is enjoying the adventure.  No pictures to share tonight.  Tomorrow we will be up early and back on the road.  Tomorrow's destination - Philadelphia

Getting Ready For The Road Trip

Tomorrow we embark on a two week adventure.  We will be heading out on a holiday road trip to visit friends and family in the Northeast.  Katherine has been longing for snow so this year we thought we'd go find some for her.  It is going to be an awesome trip.  Some of the places we will be visiting are Philadelphia, New York City, Mass, Maine, and Washington DC.  Today will be spent tying up all the last minute loose ends and making sure everything we need is packed.  I can't wait run the D700 through it's paces over the next couple weeks.  I will try to post pics of the adventure as it unfolds.  Cheers!

Christmas Lights

We went to the Magic Kingdom on Sunday and got a little more into the Christmas spirit.  Here is Cinderella's castle decorated for Christmas.  Pretty spectacular!

Cruising Around the World

Over the last few days we were blessed with a visit from one of Connie's cousins and his family.  They dropped anchor here in Titusville for a few days.  They are a few months into a 5 year adventure of cruising their boat around the world.  They sold everything they own, bought a big boat and started this adventure.  They have an 8 year old little girl and instantly our daughters hit it off like sisters.  We wish them all the best on living their dream and can't wait to see them all again.  Here are some pictures from their visit.

First Reconciliation

On Saturday Katherine achieved another milestone in the Catholic church.  She made her first reconciliation which is one of the Church's sacraments.  It is the step before making her first communion which will happen in May.  Here are a couple pictures from this wonderful day.
