Name change!

Instead of "Kentucky Girls, 2,200 miles away from home" -- I'm officially changing it to "Kentucky Girls -- my ol' KY home!" We will start driving either tomorrow afternoon, or early Wednesday morning. The packers are here, the moving truck man is here taking inventory. It's all in the works. I still can't believe it. California is absolutely beautiful and I've made some wonderful friends here. It's going to be hard to leave, but we have missed our friends and family back home. I'll update the blog when we get the computer set up again at the house (and internet service acquired). I will have access to email thru my phone. We will see you soon.


Love,
Jason, Shelley, & Maddie

Few more pictures

We went to "Whale of a Day" in 2007 as our first activity in the spring after we moved to California. It's an annual celebration in Rancho Palos Verdes of the migration of whales along the CA coast. We also went this past March 7th. Here's a look at then and now (same tree we think).







Our sweet South Bay stay-at-home-moms group gave us a farewell potluck at Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach. We had pizza, salad, and chocolate covered strawberries. Maddie LOVED these cool swings. I've never seen any like this before, but I'd like to find some in adult size. Almost an easy chair swing!







That's all for now... Hope everyone is doing well!

It's been a long time...

Finally, a few things to post and the opportunity to post them!

We've visited some places in February that we've wanted to see for quite a while. We've got to narrow down our list before we leave THIS month!

LaBrea Tarpits



Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach





Los Angeles Zoo
And a very short video of Mad playing on a hippo with a billion other kids around the place. I told Jason I knew what it felt like to be in a bee hive now... LOTS-O-kids!!!
