a re-cap of week one

Today is the first day in over a month that we have nothing planned.  It feels wonderful!
I'm still getting caught up from our vacation, but our crazy post-trip week is over.  We've had dental visits, doctor visits, a day trip to San Diego, a baby shower, dog grooming, and Brian and I celebrated our 10th anniversary.  Whew! It's no wonder the girls slept until 9am today. :)

Don't worry, I won't bombard you with 700 photos from our trip but I would love to share my favorites from our first week.  We had a lot of "firsts" for the girls and made tons of memories.  They saw deer, caught fireflies (we don't have lightning bugs in CA), among other things.

We started our trip in Tennessee visiting Brian's parents and brother and sister in law (and niece and nephews).

The girls got to ride on the four-wheelers with their "big cousins" for the first time (and LOVED it!)

At the Discovery Center

The girls with MomMom and PopPop at Cracker Barrel (another first)!

 After leaving Brian's family in southwest Tennessee, we went in to Nashville to see my aunt and uncle. Aunt Sharon took us to the Nashville Zoo.

 From Nashville, we left and went to our friends' house in Indianapolis.  On my birthday.  My wonderful friend Rachel made delicious brownie cupcakes (and a host of other yummy food all weekend).  Then we went to the Indy Zoo.

The girls got to pet a shark....

And act like monkeys...

Then we got to play with fireworks (something we are not allowed to do in our city). Brian showed the girls how to light five sparklers at a time.  

After we spent time with our friends in Indy, we moved on to Sheboygan, WI.  
But that starts our second week.....
