Back for a bit

We're back from the first half of our vacation, getting ready to head out to the second half.

The first was wonderful, in the NC and Virgina mountains and foothills. We all had a blast. We've been gem mining, driven along the Blue Ridge Parkway (everyone should drive a portion of this at least once in a lifetime), stood on windy bridge on Grandfather mountain and even tried hiking to the top - it gets a little unnerving on the cables and ladders, although not if you're my five year old in which case dad is just a bit of a wuss.

The second half is all in Virgina - we're heading to a theme park (Kings Dominion - my oldest is getting the coaster bug!), to Richmond, Williamsburg, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Road tripping is fun.

The Nintendos are wonderful for keeping the kids quiet.

I'll post pics later, after we get back.

Mysteriously quiet at Overground ...

Since I could not recall your email address...I think it had something to do with Haggis (what with you being Scottish)..anyways, here is the addy for our new website http://web.mac.com/teamdrake ...I'm thinking Overground is going to wither and die (however it is a good spot to post things that are less appealing to a wide audience, since there are only 3 that ever go there).

Do try to keep it clean at our new digs...it's family friendly.

No, no - he's Welsh, not Scottish!

The new digs look spiffy.
