Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone

We’re on the road again!

11th July 2007

Sorry you haven’t heard from us!  I just got caught up from the trip and now we’re on the road again.  After a crazy busy weekend that included Wisconsin friends visiting, working 2 services of child care at church and the final 3rd birthday party for Analise (pictures and more to come!), we left early Monday morning for western Pennsylvania.  Brian raced today in the USA Cycling’s National Road Master’s Championships (30-34 age group) race.  I’ll let him tell more, but though it started well, he didn’t feel so good by the end.  Not surprising as it was 6500′ of climbing in 50 miles.  WHEW. 

We’re in Somerset, Pennsylvania, and it’s been a really great trip.  The kids have travelled well, including a marathon 800 mile trip on Monday, arriving here at 11:30pm.  It’s been nice to be in one hotel for 3 nights.  We visited the Flight 93 crash site and temporary memorial yesterday, and today we visited Ohiopyle Falls and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home, Fallingwater, appropriately in a rain storm:)  Very fun day.  Many pictures to come… I promise.  Western PA is beautiful, heavy rolling hills covered in farms.  I love it.

Tomorrow morning we’re leaving early for New York City!  Since we’re "so close", we’re going to visit an old friend, Radu, who lives just 3 blocks from Central Park, though he assures us that E 110th St. is actually Harlem, so we’ll find free parking.  Good to know.  We’re going to explore Central Park, have dinner with Radu and his family.  Friday, we’re heading down the East Coast to stay in Williamsburg, VA where we’ll visit with my aunt, uncle and cousin and her family for an evening/morning.  Saturday, I’m so very excited… finally, at long last, we’re heading to South Carolina for a long-awaited beach vacation.  I’ve never spent a week at the beach, and Brian’s family has a 6-bedroom beach house reserved for the week in Myrtle Beach. 

We’ll check back in late with pictures…
