MOSH

Over the past few days, Tropical Storm Fay has kept us in and away from the outside world. Kennedy and Landon thrive on outside time and being at the house for over 48 hours definitely gave us a taste of cabin fever! Today was the first day that we had a chance to get out and enjoy some "away from home" time. A local museum here in Jax is called the MOSH (Museum of Science & History). They had some neat exhibits and a play area that the kids loved. Kennedy was a little unsure about the GIANT insect exhibit but other than that we had a good time. We were also able to meet up with the Anderson's for a great lunch at European Street Cafe - yum! I'm trying to soak in all this time with Jared. Deployment seems such a short time away (mid Nov) and these moments of fun bring the reality of him being gone to life. We sure love him!

Ya'll are so cute! Nate just got home so I hate to already be talking about this, but he's set to leave again Dec. 1. So, sounds like will be "husbandless" at the same time! Want to hang out? :)

We had a great time at lunch with you guys- it was the perfect way to cheer us up after Luke's chemo treatment!:) I know the time the guys will leave before we know it- but that is where friends come in- to get through the hard and lonely times in life- and several getaway weekends with the kids are always in order:)

Thanks guys! Thanks for your friendship! Beth - we should definitely hang out - I hate that it has to be under the circumstances of our hubbys gone but what a great opportunity! Meghan - I agree, we need to have stuff planned and it will make the time so much easier.
