With Trevor away, the kids and I decided to take a trip back to the states to visit family.  We decided to do space A which was very interesting and we met lots of interesting and very helpful people.  It took us a total of 4 days to make our trip from Okinawa to BWI.  We stayed in the terminals and USOs.  The kids did great.  In the terminals they met friends to play and run around with so they slept on almost all of the flights. 
We have had time to visit the shore, play and do a lot of things that we have been missing out on living in a different country.  We started out at the beach with some of my cousins and other relatives.  We had a blast.  Then we headed down to DC.  There we got a personal tour of the natural science museum.  It was probably the best time I had at a museum.  Manna, Ava Samuel and I were lucky enough to go to the golf tournament in DC hosted by Tiger Woods!  Ava and I were lucky enough to have Tiger walk right in front of us as we were trying to cut across the course to go to the use the bathroom.  We all had great standing spot to see him teeing off on the 1st.  We watched a bunch of other golfers from the same view.  The kids did great and stayed quiet for the tee offs.  Ava, Samuel and Isabel had a great time playing together. 
Then we headed back up to PA.  We had a play date to play at Sesame Place with our cousins and my mom (GaGa to the kids).  The weather was nice, but a little cool.  We didn't get pictures with any characters, but we enough characters with us, LOL.  Sam Kyler and Jake had a good time running together as Ava, Jillie, Emma and Alex played well together.  Kyler and Samuel road in the double stroller together and had a great time in building block area.  Ava rode on her first roller coaster with her Aunt Nikki, cousins Emma and Alex.  The cousins also got to do a fun sleepover at Aunt Millie's house.  Kids got to swim, eat junk food and watch movies.  Uncle Pat even got in the fun.
Then it was time to head down to Bethany Beach to spend some more time with Aunt Adrianne, Uncle Alex, Isabel and Manna.  We got a chance to stop in DE and visit with some of my old friends from Dover.  My friend Rhiannon had a little get together at her house and invited some people over.  We also got to meet our friends Rob and Anne's new baby daughter.  It was nice to see everyone. 
At Bethany we stayed at a beautiful place called the Sea Colony.  We were in an apartment that faced the beach that sat right on the beach.  The kids had a great time playing on the beach and swimming in the pool there.  For Isabel's birthday, Adrianne and Alex got a photographer and matching outfits for the girls.  I can't wait to see the pictures they got on the beach. 
Between traveling back and forth from PA to DC and also a visit up to NY we've had a great time visiting with everyone and hoping for more time with everyone!  They are even getting in some quality time with there soon to be uncle Joe.
