2 years + 1 month...

I know I’m a couple of weeks late on posting but I wanted to wait until after our trip to PA so I could share some pictures of our Day Out With Thomas trip!  But before I get to that we have been on other adventures since her birthday too!

A couple of weeks after Sydney’s birthday we took our second annual family trip to Nags Head.  Yes, I know, we go to Nags Head a lot but we wanted to start a family tradition of going to Nags Head every year around her birthday that way we can always plan for it and look forward to it.  Sydney loves the beach and water so it’s a win-win. J 

No suit, no problem!  We were on a drive and stopped at the water, couldn't keep her out of it!

We were able to get in the pool a little bit towards the end of summer (our pump broke so we had to wait for a replacement to be shipped) and Sydney decided she wanted to be independent in the water….and SWIM!

We also went to Sydney’s first fair.  She really enjoyed the Ferris wheel and all of the other rides.  I think she is going to like roller coasters like her mommy! J

Our trip to PA was fun!  We were in the area of Lancaster, PA.  The first night we stayed in a train caboose and Sydney slept in a big bed for the first time.  We rode Thomas at the Strasburg Railroad.  Thomas was the engine for our 20 minute train ride!  Once we were done with the Thomas ride Sydney got to meet Sir Topham Hat!


After our day out with Thomas we decided to ride up to Hershey and check out how chocolate is made.  That was a neat place and I want to go back to visit Hershey Park! 

First Hershey chocolate bar!

On our way home we decided to take the scenic route and stopped in Harpers Ferry, WV.  We walked around a bit and took in the scenery.

She's got toddler swag!

Other than our adventures, Sydney has been going to soccer each Saturday and she really enjoys running around and playing with the other kids.  She has apparently decided she doesn’t like her Kindermusic class (and by decided I mean that she didn’t even want to go into the room today and last week she only stayed in the room for about 15 minutes) so we’ve decided to try that class after she gets a bit older.
