Fun Times

I am back from the lake trip! I had so much fun! I haven't done some of the stuff we did this weekend since I was in high school. We swam, played cards, had a campfire, talked about Jesus, got to know each other better, and overall just had a fun, relaxing time. And you know what? I didn't take a single picture! I had my camera with me, but I was having way too much fun to snap any pics of the kids.

Last night we went out on the boat at like 11pm and did a late night swim under the stars. It was beautiful! I can't even tell you the last time I stopped and took the time to look at the stars. Seriously! Isn't that sad?! I loved just sitting on the boat, listening to the kids and adults splash around and think how awesome God is. I of course was way too comfortable being dry and way too burnt to get in the water again, but I did enjoy watching them play Marco/Polo.

On the homefront, Molly did great with Becky. They went to State Fair last night, and went to McDonald's today for lunch. I came home to a napping child, which was nice so I could shower and start laundry. We leave tomorrow again, but this time for vacation. I am excited to go back to Ohio, and just do nothing. Which probably won't happen. Because as most of you know, when you live far from family, all you do is spend time trying to visit with your family when you are back home, then before you know it vacation is over with! So we are trying to balance out visiting time and relaxation time.

Other then that...I am trying to regain the feeling of burnt, leathery skin! I get sunburned just thinking about going outside. So it does not take long for me to get a little red. Right now I am sporting the shade lobster red. So attractive, I might add. Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend! I should be back Monday to check blogs...or not, I am on vacation!

That sounds like so much fun!! I'm glad you were able to do all that. Takes ya back to the day, huh? (Ha, I say that like I'm really old or something.)

Aw, man! How long will you be in Ohio? I think I'm going to miss you because I'm down in the southern portions all week and weekend too b/c of work.

Oh, sorry to hear about the sunburn! I imagine it's prolly not to far off from what I had. Trina spent quite a bit of time peeling off my skin this weekend. She seems to enjoy that. lol

Hey there...I'm a day late due the feeling yucky on my part and fever on my son's part this last week. You won the book from my give away last week, so if you want to email me at with your mailing info, I'll get that mailed out to you. Sorry this is late and so short. Been such a long week. Congrats girl!
