Ramblings of a recovering traveler. . .
Here is the "nutshell" version of the trip: (Too nauseated to type lots of details.)
1. Left 5/5 after Troy was completely done with BJU duties.
2. Pulled into GBS late - where we spent the first night.
3. Arrived in Dayton on Sunday morn where we attended our "old" church. Had an awesome lunch (Dave made some of that pork which I love!) at Bange's where we lounged with "old" friends. Here is -
the Bange's little girl. Isn't she adorable?! It was also a blast to get reacquainted with -
Camden Manley! (Thought you might like to see this, Janice.)
4. Stayed with the Manleys until Tuesday evening. Had a wonderful time. Seth almost cried when we left. . .
5. Returned to Cincy where we stayed with -

my Grandma Sampson. We had a good time with her between all of our running the city.

6. Visited with family.

7. Joan took us to the aquarium where the boys would - live at the shark petting tank if they could.
They never tire of this activity.
We also fed the birds at the aquarium. I quickly left disgusted after a swooping bird left a trail on me! Ick!
8. More time with family.
Here is a shot of me holding "Earl, the dead cat." (Gene, what was it you said about thinking your own family is normal? :-)

9. Had the privilege of seeing many friends and fellow bloggers. I even got to hold Bryce Ayars.

10. Arrived home on the 11th. There was a big rainbow in SC. . . I think God is telling me to start liking this far, far away land. :-)

The little girl and Camden are too adorable!
I am afraid of birds and won't go into that part of the aquarium.
Are you allowing me to post the pictures of us, or did you not care enough about my family to take pics?

Faith loves looking at your blog. She just saw your pict with the dead cat and gasped "Martha!" She has a good memory, and is becoming quite the chatter-box... She even knows who Ethan is, and she didn't even get to see him much that weekend. Hey, by the way, I saw my ultrasond, not as far along as I thought, I guess, but baby's heart is beating! What a relief! How are things with your bb? By the way, I think allergy season just started up here, because I have been suffering with it now... but, I sneeze so loud it can be embarrassing. Sarah

Looks like you had a busy, but fun trip seeing and staying with different friends, and family, and getting a lot packed in in a little time! That's what we do too, for we want to see everyone in that short time frame. =)

Love, Heather

I talked to Joan and told her I saw her on the internet. After her initial "fear", she realized it was from you. She said "she was snapping pictures all the time, I didn't know what she was doing". I was cracking up! We bloggers "get it"!

How funny, Angie...when I saw the picture of Clarissa, I thought she looked just like her daddy!

Thanks for sharing the pics of your trip, Martha. Makes us feel better about not having a post to read here at the castle for several days... :) :)

By the way, is that cat really a dead stuffed cat? I have stared at the thing in disbelief... that is gross.

Hi, I came to check out your blog to see Susie's work. As I was looking at your pictures, and seeing the street with no sidewalks, I was thinking to myself "oh, I wonder what state she lives in since they have no sidewalks either." Then I saw that you live in SC too.
