We love going to Delaware for Seamus' checkups and getting to visit our old friend, "Happy Donald!"
Another successful visit with Drs. Bober and Mackenzie! Seamus had super awesome checkups with both docs. He has some pretty significant bowing of the legs which they are keeping an eye on, but it has not worsened since May so they are happy with that!
And of course, the bi-annual trip would not be complete without snapping a picture with our favorite red-haired clown.
We also look forward to spending time in the House itself...the huge, beautiful staircase...
The awesome pirate ship in one of the playrooms...
And the fantastic decorations, no matter what the season.
We also had a special treat on this visit. Seamus and Grace were asked to be a part of a photo shoot involving a therapy dog named Chase! The photos are for Chase's holiday cards to all of his clients, so we are looking forward to seeing some of the final pictures.
The other special treat of this visit was getting to meet the Greene family!
We had a wonderful visit with Jenn, Jason, sweet Simon and adorable baby Jude at the Wilmington Museum of Natural History.
Here's Seamus with SuperCroc...that thing was intimidating!
Simon is definitely on the move...it was not an easy feat to get him in a picture! However, there's not much cuter than seeing that cutie run around his sweet smile!
"Simon, stand right here!"
Checking out this cool fish tank - both Dory and Nemo were inside!
Our crew - I temporarily adopted Baby Jude and couldn't give him up for this picture! Such a snuggly boy...ohhh, it was very dangerous for me!!
After the museum we headed out for some lunch, which involved the following:
Heading out into the pouring rain,
getting four kids into carseats,
driving to the Concord Pike,
getting four kids out of carseats,
running through the rain into Panera only to find that it was mobbed,
walking back out into the rain to discuss our next move,
packing four kids back into the carseats,
leading the Greenes to our next choice of restaurant,
which included taking a wrong turn on the Pike,
3 missed calls between me and Jenn,
and a seriously life-threatening and probably illegal U-turn into a throng of incoming traffic.
And a partridge in a pear tree.
Whew! But we made it in one piece, and Jenn and Jason assured me that they weren't sorry they drove all that way to meet us lunatics, and we had a great lunch!
Thanks so much Greene family! Hope to do it all again in May (minus the U-turn!)
