Before the big trips, we make tie dye t-shirts for all of us to wear. We only do this on bigger trips w/ big crowds. Even my older kids have trouble w/ memory due to the frontal lobe brain damage from the FAS. So, this just makes things a bit easier for everyone. We can clearly see each other. We did this in D.C. and really helped in the metro areas.
Before we left, life still went on as usual. One of the "littles" and Alyona doing Yana's hair. And makeup. Yana was a good sport.
Can't believe I'm even putting this up here. This was AFTER Alyona and the "littles' " helped do my makeup. Hence, the red glow all over my face. And they did my hair. Lovely, huh? Nik wanted me to make a heart w/ him and take a picture.
We stopped at the VA welcome center to have lunch. Had PBJ, oranges, string cheese, chips & Pepsi. Good lunch to eat outside and smell some air other than the inside of the van. Was very pleasant out.
A view of the Susquehana River. Kids couldn't believe how big it was. Nor could they believe that we were finally in PA. LOL.
At the hotel, we got two rooms. Well, they came w/ two double beds each. Meaning, we had to adjust the sleeping arrangements for 3. So, Alex, Nik & Bojan slept across the bed instead of vertical. It worked. Obviously, in the next few months we'll have to find a solution as 3 rooms would be impossible to work. Looking into converting an old bus into an RV. That is a whole other post.
