Bethlehem 4th of July Fireworks

We had and amazing time last night in downtown Bethlehem, PA they had great fireworks and everyone was very friendly and of course they just loved Liam! He had a very fun night, we was a little apprehensive about the fireworks at the very start but by the end he just wanted more! He was just clapping and enjoying all the people around him!

Let's see its been about 2 months...lets do another update :)

Things have been very crazy in the Shannon household these past couple of months, Danielle did get a residency so we will be moving to Pennsylvania sometime in June. Danielle will be the Pharmacy Resident at Hartzell's Pharmacy in Catasauqua, PA which is in the Lehigh Valley. We are very excited about this but we have a lot to do here in Durham before we get up there, like sell our home!!!

The big news today is we celebrated Liam's first birthday today! We had a small party because as stated above we are trying to sell our home so we didn't want anything we couldn't clean up pretty fast. Liam had a blast and had his first taste of some cake.

You can check out the video below and please, please don't sue us major record label for using this so appropriate music!

I guess we should update this once and while huh?

Well we really should update this thing but rather than do an all encompassing update but we really don't have the time for that right now, so here is an update from the past couple of days. Danielle has decided to pursue a Pharmacy Residency so that means that she has been applying and interviewing basically all over the country. She has already interviewed in Chicago and right now we are sitting in a hotel in Manhattan, celebrating Danielle's birthday as well has Bill's half-birthday and there is some kind of other holiday on Sunday. Now she's not interviewing for a position in New York, it's actually in the Lehigh Valley area in Pennsylvania, she interviewed on Thursday and we decided to make it a weekend and have some fun.

Well mother nature decided to make it a very memorable road trip. Three of the cities we drove through had record snow falls and apparently in Philadelphia they had what is called "thunder snow" its basically a thunderstorm with snow instead of rain, we did not experience it but I can tell you there was a lot of snow and somehow we ended up on a closed interstate and when we discovered they closed the roads to Allentown we decided to call it a day and found a hotel and waited until the morning to drive the final hour and half.

Tomorrow we are heading to DC and hopefully they have plowed the roads enough for us to have some fun there as well.

Here are some pics of our trip so far.

Rice Cereal

We are on a posting frenzy here!
So last night we thought Liam was ready to try some rice cereal for the first time.
The results were kind of mixed and we made sure to document the event with video and pictures.
The video was absolutely his first taste of the stuff and then the pictures followed.
