I'm back....

Wow, this month is flying by and it's been a busy one.  Two weekends ago, B and I spent time with my family celebrating.  My Dad and brother and our family were selected as Farm Family of the Year.  We had so much fun, an industry dinner where we met our state senators and the governor.  We judged a potato recipe contest and had a float in a parade.  The best part was just spending time together and enjoying each others company.  I am so blessed!

We ended that weekend with a visit with my BFF from high school.  She and her family made their annual pilgrimage north.  We got to see a new engagement ring, met a sweet girlfriend that we hadn't met on our last trip to see them.  We played catch up on our lives and just enjoyed spending time with each other.  Leaving each other was awful - a 6 hour visit was not long enough!

This past weekend, we camped with friends at a local lake.  We got to play with their 11 month old son and 7 year old grandson!  We boated and tubed and ate and played cards and chatted and laughed and it was all wonderful.

This weekend, my sister and her kiddos are headed our way and I can't wait!  I miss my family always, and getting to have them here in our home is just simply heaven.  The kids and I are going to do something exotic while their mom visits with her best college friend.  Then we are going to do a little shopping, a lot of visiting and eating!

Oh....and in 28 days we are heading out on vacation to Disney!  The countdown is on and I'm ready to pack! 

It's an exciting time - I love summer, it's not exactly relaxing, but it sure is fun!

Please forgive me...

Long time...no write!  It's summer and we have been on the go - enjoying vacation, camping, family time, and hot weather.   This first vacation of the summer involved 4 days with B's family - camping near the ocean.  The first day ways great, we played the washer game, went to a concert at the campground, biked, walked - then it started to rain and rain some more.  We worried that maybe we should have started building an ark!  We spent time playing games, eating, going to the movies and even a bit of time on the beach in the rain.

The day we left them to head to my family, well you know what happened, the sun came out and they  all enjoyed 2 gorgeous beach days.  We enjoyed a a day of travel and then blistering hot weather while we visited my family.  We spent time at the lake with my sister and her family.  It was so hot, that I even got in the water.  This is an event that does not occur during a normal calendar year.  I'm not much for swimming in dark murky water...but oh it was cool and heavenly and it was just what I needed.  We also had a BBQ with the family and a little pool party. 

I hate that the time flew by and before we knew it, we were back on the road headed home.  I went back to work and B enjoyed a few more days off.  Just like that, vacation #1 was over. 

But...vacation #2 is only 43 days away and we can't wait!

Rainy Days and Camping

So, we are camping for a few days with B's family and it's raining this afternoon.  Need I say more?  The good news, we are not tenting - everyone has campers and we are staying with B's sister and brother-in-law in theirs.   We've played games, hung out, listened to some good country music and ate.   The bad news, this is the day we picked to go to the beach, and we were there long enough to lay out our towels and get rained on.

We have one day left to try for the beach.  The weather report is not looking good, but we will pack our stuff up again and try.   It's the chance you take, and we will have plenty of beach days this summer, just not with all the family.

We are having fun, making memories, taking pics, and enjoying being with all the kiddos.  So rainy days aren't so bad.
