Friday morning

Allen and Joe graciously allowed me to invade their tent to get pictures of what camping is like behind the scenes :)
Snug as a bug in a rug! Fortunately for us, there was no rain, snow, sleet or hail to marr the snugness.

Friday night fun

I must mention here that Leyla came camping in spite of having strep throat. She even rode the inner tube Saturday afternoon :) The men
The ladies (minus Ashley, who couldn't come until Saturday)

Camping. That's hot.

Intrepid campers: Bill and Sheryl, Joe and Kate, Eric and Tessa,
Jan Michael and me, Allen and Ashley, Soren and Leyla

The great camp-out has come and gone. We're making this a tradition, I hope. More pictures to come when I'm less worn out.....

Happy birthday my brotha!

Here's to you, Derek! Let's figure out when we can whoop it up!

I can't think of a title

At first you may think, "Derek, how rude for sticking your tongue out at your auntie!" But it's OK, I did it to him first. Also, he's only imitating a pirate - he still has two legs; one's just hiding :)

Another evening with Little D... We took a walk, played with trucks and bulldozers, he enjoyed some yogurt in his birthday suit (which is another story, along with why in the world he's wearing a huge pink T-shirt in these pictures), practiced blowing kisses, climbed up and down the stairs - you get the idea. As a parting gesture, my mom and I received good-night hugs and kisses while my dad was given a nice, firm handshake. Oh, and it seems he said "Auntie", and my dad can vouch for me on this one :)

Derek (again and again and again)

Derek does Pilates :)
Goodness. It's like I turned my head for two seconds and somehow he grew up. If being an aunt is this bittersweet, what must it be like as a parent?

Derek discovers that off-roading on a trike doesn't work so well :)

Boy, do we need some vegetables

Last night for dinner I ate a bag of Reece's Pieces, a king-size Pay Day, a glass of lemonade, and a little while later, some vanilla ice cream with white-chocolate chips tossed in for good measure. I believe my husband ate a Twix, a large quantity of Whoppers, the lemonade, and possibly a Kit-Kat. Then, because everybody should eat dessert now and again, we ate strawberry shortcake ice cream bars around 11:00......

This morning we jogged half a mile.

Hair news

Today while I was at my sis's salon becoming beauuuuuuutiful, I read the ingredients of one of the hair products she was using, and it contains the extract of frankincense and myrrh :)
