It really is amazing how much you can do in so short a time. Tomorrow will mark our official two weeks away from home. Only two more to go.
Yesterday we drove out to
The weather was nice all day – sunny, breezy and just gorgeous. After walking around town, getting lunch and “John Harvard,” we dropped by Aunt Michelle’s place to decide where to go next. After hanging around and chatting with the neighbors, we decided to get some dinner at “The Barking Crab,” a restaurant located right on the

“Eleven. Nine children, my wife and myself.”
“Oh? And where are you headed?”

So, we pull up to the building on the left, whereupon Dad goes in to talk to the officers. After a few minutes, he comes back out.
“Alright, everybody out!”
“But William is sleeping!” Mom protested.
“Sorry, but we all have to go inside.”So, we all piled out and filed into the building on the left, went down the hall and into a small office where another man waited for us. He asked us similar questions, a little more nosey, asked to see all the photo ID’s we had, and then told us that when going into a foreign country, we should always have birth certificates.
“Well, I trust you are all American citizens."
He stamped a yellow piece of paper, and told us to take it back to the group of officers outside the office. One of them took the paper, and they all watched us as we went back outside and climbed back into the van. We grabbed some dinner, and found our hotel, went to bed, and here we are again…waiting to see what today will bring, ey?
