It's all relative ... Dunkin' Donuts & Jumpy
...Today we took a trip to the nearest Super Wal-Mart. I got the twins pepped up for the trip because I, myself, was excited. Just a couple miles from our home is a regular Wal-Mart and I'd forgotten about the conveniences of the 'Super' part. (Sorry to those who don't like Wal-Mart ... to me it's almost a necessity). I got the map out and thought ... oh it will take a while. I programmed it into my Garmin and was surprised to see it's only 17 miles away. Here I was, ready for a 1/2 day trip at least. It's all relative, I've learned, about how far away something looks, and what it actually is. It's funny to me at how close everything in the East is to each other. I basically took a trip from Smithfield to Wellsville today, and thought it was going to be comparable as a Logan to Ogden trip.
...Also I've decided that Dunkin' Donuts must be headquartered here. There are 5 within 2 miles of our home. They're everywhere ... mini shops in the grocery stores, and shops on nearly every corner, kind of like LDS church houses in Utah!
...Matt took the squirrel picture over the weekend because we've declared it unofficially as 'the state animal'. They, like Dunkin' Donunts, are EVERYWHERE! Kate sees them and says, "Look Mom, Jumpy the Squirrel" (ring a bell, anyone? Curious George watchers.)
