okay. so i never got around to telling you all that we'd gone anywhere. sorry!
we were in sunny florida visiting family. yep. my parents live just 6 miles from the ocean. i grew up a beach bum. what a life! we made a couple trips to the beach with grandma and my neice, then one to the bay to visit my brother's fish camp. and the blueberries were ripe in my other brother's front yard. a bunch of little boy cousins to play with. too much fun too little time.
there were a few minor annoyances in paradise. g came home with about 20 mosquito bites. and that's a low guesstimate. seems he's a lot sweeter than his mommy (bugs tend to avoid me if there's better blood around). and on the trip down i left my wallet on a grassy embankment where we'd spent a few minutes watching trucks go by (a favorite passtime of almost two-year-old boys) and had to backtrack 40 miles to go get it. we then got a flat tire on the interstate an hour from our destination. we were in the car a looooong time.
no problems coming back, thank goodness. and i'm happy to say i got my certificate this morning for completing my driver's safety course (a residual effect of the speeding ticket i got on our last trip to florida). and the kitties are so glad we're back. it's so nice to be missed.
oh. and so i don't forget to tell you this time . . . we're headed to texas to see the other sister thursday . . .
see what gluestickgirl made for me?! i have a new ribbontastic banner! yippeee! :) i sent her a pic and she sent me back this awesome banner in no time! isn't she the greatest?! i'm so in awe of her superhero skills. and her generosity. what an amazing friend! :D
