Where have we been?..........

Well, Friday was another FABULOUS Mom's Night out. I got home at 2:10 am.....enough said.....it was a wonderful night out with a special group of friends.
The rest of the weekend was filled boating with my Mom and Step Dad.....beautiful visit.....(was pretty tired form the night before but I rallied.) It got a little windy...right Mom?

Today, was a Farewell...Good Luck....See you Soon...play date to say Good Bye to our friends that are moving to Rhode Island. In honor of the occasion nakedness was allowed in the park..........this will be fun to show them when they are 16.
Oh yeah....I WON the great bracelet from Cinnamon Sticks...How fun is that!!

Friday Flashback

Finding these pictures in my baby book of my Mom and I reminds me of some of the silly days I am having with Sarah. These were taken before digital cameras so I am sure it was exciting to be able to see the pictures right away. Thanks for teaching me how to be silly Mom.....Sarah thanks you too!!

So true.......

This postcard was part of the fun package I got from Kelly in the favorite things swap!! It is on my refrigerator and I look at it every day and I have come to realize it is true.....I AM Domestically Disabled!! I can never catch up.......the computer doesn't help , better run...I hear the vacuum calling!! Have a great day!!

Friday Flashback

Sister to sister we will always be,
A couple of nuts off the same family tree.
Author Unknown
Ahhh got to love this Friday Flashback.....such sweet sisters. I am the one with the great bangs!! I was going to post a more recent picture of us too but couldn't find one of just the two of us. So, that will be my next project ,in October, when I see Miss R......or "Runny Roodle" as she was fondly called by my Mother as a child. She will be a happy 8 months pregnant and I am sure will be thrilled with a photo shoot.
Happy Friday !!

It's the small things..............

My friend Tonya made me aware of Childhood Cancer Awareness Day today. She has an update on her blog of dear little Tuesday and her fight.

I am asking a favor.........My cousin's 16 year old son from, Missoula Montana, has recently be diagnosed with stage 3 Non-Hodgkins cancer. He is 3 hours from home in Spokane, Washington going through chemotherapy. He is a wonderful kid and gifted grafitti artist with a contageous joy for life. He will be away from home for 5 more weeks........if you have a moment to drop him a note or postcard it would brighten up his long days ahead.

The address is:

Ronald McDonald House Spokane.
1015 W. 5th Ave, Spokane, WA. 99204.
His name is Max Mahn and his apt. # is 7

This picture was found here. It is not one done by Max but thought he would like it.


Okay, while getting my exercising groove back this morning (early)....my friend and I decided to walk in a bike race.............. Nothing was posted to tell us 100's of men in tight bike suits ( and a few women) would be sharing the path with us...........yikes...........it started out slow one or two bikes and quickly it looked like this picture. We made it home safe ( after 2.5 hours and a Charlie Horse) and hopefully my bum is a little firmer !!

Oh...... how great I was feeling before our Big Bear trip. I was really starting to feel a difference in how my clothes were fitting before I got derailed by a week of Margaritas , Fish Tacos and Ice Cream.....(and very little exercise. ) It is time to get back on track.....this flashback picture always helps me remember how great it is to have rock hard abs.......................runs in the family.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

We are back!!

Wow, what a great week!! It was so fun to be on a lake again. I love the ocean but I was raised around lakes ( Coeur d Alene , Idaho) so I enjoy getting in the water much more knowing that seals, sharks and whales aren't swimming with me........I prefer swimming with ducks and trout.
Here are just a few pictures from our week.........looking forward to catching up on my blogging. A week without a computer ....yikes!!
