Brief word to FFs

I know some of my FF friends read the blog so I wanted to say good-bye but please keep in touch. I tried to say good-bye before I left but the site and I weren't agreeing about my wanting to share my email address. So, I'm locked out of sending messages or, even replying to posts at the moment, but if they let me back on I'll try to say my good-byes.

Love ya!

EDITED TO ADD: I'm officially completely off of FF. I wasn't able to get back on, just cancel my membership.

I will get back to our regularly scheduled program shortly! Promise!

Okay, one more story before vacation pictures

I've got to get this story out before I forget.

Last week I was talking to JC and he walked out of the room while I was talking. Not necessarily an unusual occurrence, but when he walked out I looked at Katie and said, "Katie, when you get married, please make sure that your husband doesn't walk out of the room while you're talking to him."

Later that day we were stopped at a gas station. Katie had gotten out of the car to stretch and JC was putting her back in the car. She was talking to him when he closed the door. She looked at me and said, "And I GUESS that I should make sure my husband doesn't close the door on me when I'm talking to him either!"

I was laughing so hard when JC got in the car that I had to tell him both conversations. That kid cracks me up.

No pictures yet but.....

I do have a couple stories. While we were in Wisconsin we had a couple meals at a place called the Wolfpack Cafe - highly recommended by the way. Anyhow, when you come in they give the kids some crayons and a picture of a wolf to color while they are waiting for their food. My darling daughter colors the wolf and then asks JC to draw a deer in the background. At this point, I wasn't paying too much attention to what was being drawn. When I looked over to see how her picture was coming, I realized that she had made JC draw the deer lying down. And then she colored it red. And colored the mouth and snout of the wolf red. Eek.

P E T A - People for the eating of tasty animals. Yep. That's my kid. JC is going to turn her into a hunter yet. Deer Wolf

Back from Vacation

I'm sorry, the cheese went bad on the way home. It was way too hot back there and it cooked. Sorry. I'll bring a cooler next time.

I have some pictures of Katie fishing but I have to figure out how to get them out of JC's camera. My camera, having been fixed right before we left, died as soon as we got there. I tried to get pictures of her riding a horse, but cameras weren't allowed on the trail. But she definitely had fun riding a big horse for the first time. I was worried watching her (being on the horse right behind her) but didn't have too much time to worry about hers as mine was trying to break the world's slowest horse record...until it would decide to trot. Did I mention the bed we were on was possibly filled with bricks and my back was already annoyed with me? Trotting horses - do. not. help. I can't wait to go to bed tonight.

Oh, and I think I forgot to mention the bike riding. That was the night before the trotting horse. Do you know how long it has been since I've been on a bike? Eight years. Do you know what a bike seat feels like after not having been on one for eight years? A trotting horse. Did I mention that I was wearing open backed gym shoes on this trotting horse? Not a good idea. I am sore from my ankles to my neck. But I had fun! Somewhere in there... I think it was the fishing. I didn't hurt myself during the fishing. And luckily the shoulder that hurt from the horse - don't ask, I don't know how - was not my casting shoulder.

Okay, I'm going to go try to figure out JC's camera.
