3: Our trip just began can you feel the love
4: You could not wait to meet Eeyore. We waited in line but did not have the camera so we had to go back and find him again. Stitch was a silly one. Remember how he almost broke your pen? We finally met Alice from Alice in Wonderland and of course the White Bunny.
6: Animal Kingdom we looked forward to going on Expedition Everest. The ride looked scarier than it was. The Safari was lots of fun. We saw many different animals. I think your favorite was the elephants.

34: Walking around the Marine Museum was lot of fun. June 2009
36: Virginia Beach was so much fun. It was a long car ride down, but the waves where worth it. | Bush Gardens was much better this time. It was not as hot and the electricity did not go out. Remember the Big Bad Wolf ride. That was a great roller coaster. But the best part of the day was the Garlic Rolls.

43: Washington D.C.
44: Walking around Baltimore was so much fun. What a beautiful City. The Ocean ferry was much better than walking. We met up with the Dean's.
46: The Boston Red Sox
47: Here we are at the Red Sox game in Baltimore. We met up with Ashley, Shane, Tommy and Lisa. Thank goodness the Red Sox won.We had a long ride home. Everyone fell asleep so it was nice and quiet on the long long ride home.
49: In the summer you all love to go camping. Of course the biggest fight is who gets to sleep next to me.
50: New Hampshire at Debbie and Peter's. This year the Dean's met us. | We had a lot of fun visiting the Luz's at their vacation house
53: We went to the Pat's training camp. We waited to get autographs but did not get any. | Ryan, David, Conor, Matt A, Daniel, Darren, Zack, Shane, Jake.
55: You children love to go to the beach. We went a bunch of times this summer with all your friends. Building sand castles and boogie boarding where the most fun.
56: Fishing out of New Hampshire was lots of fun everyone caught a fish.
57: You love going to soccer camp. It is always the hottest week of the summer. Kacie, Kayla, Torrie and Katie.
58: What a sad day when we learned that Guinness was also going to heaven.
61: Getting Autographs at the Rev's practice and then going to the game with all of David friends.
62: Meeting Fenway for the first time. We thought it was hard to pick one dog. Little did we know we would be getting another dog. Dad decided on Ron (Fenway)

64: Apple Picking at Honey Pot | Don't forget the doughnuts
65: You Love to walk the dogs NOT.
66: Your first soccer season in travel
69: We went for the Christmas tree. We tried a new place. What fun that turned out to be. I asked that you all get along and that did not happen. I let you have it when we came home. I think you all where sorry after I reminded you of the night before with all your friends and the crafts we did.
71: What a year. You have grown so much this year. You have made some new friends Brittney C, Brianna and Tori. Of course you still have your good friends Emma, Sam, Katie, Megan, Ashlyn, and Kalya B. You tried out for travel soccer this year and made the team with your friends. You played softball for the first time and seemed to enjoy it. You decided not to do dance this year but I bet you will go back to it next year. We had a lot of good memories this year. Many vacations and camping trips. Day trips to the beach and swimming in our pool. This year was also hard first we learned that Jasmine was sick and had to be put to sleep and then a few months later Guinness also had to be put to sleep. The only good think about all this is that we picked out to great dogs Lilly and Fenway. Have a great year and I Love you MOM
