Some Happier Highlights of Vacation

I know I sounded all Negative Nellie in today's post about our vacation. Make no bones about it ~ it was rough. BUT. There were good times to be had too! And I wanted to share those as well!

Here are some of the happier times of our trip.

My sister T. (the nurse and Master Gardener) had some kicked up flowers on her deck! I just fell in love with them. She had not one, but TWO of these bad boys! Does it not make you want to run to the nearest nursery and spend $200?!?!

Ah, Charlie. She always makes me smile. :)

This is Christopher. He's my great nephew I saw for the first time in Michigan. He's a hambone and a cutie! He'll be 1 next month right after Hope turns 2. They weigh the same. This boy has girth. And drool.

Hope took filling the sand pail quite seriously.

I bought this doo rag as a joke at a gas station on the way to Tennessee. Guess who really liked it and has taken up wearing the thing? It's black and has orange and red flames all over! I told him to look mean for me. He does it quite well, don't you think? Oooo, Monk. Scary.

A big metal slide. In the middle of a lake. Every kid's dream.

And this poor baby just swung her self right to sleep she was so worn out. No kidding. She's sleeping in the swing.

Speaking of sleeping. That's what I need to be doing. I get to take newborn pictures in the morning!! Woo-hoo!!

And that, my friends, is about as abrubt of an end to a blog post as you can possibly get!

Good Night!

I'm glad there was a little bit of 'sunshine' to your vacation! I just love Hope's haircut. She looks absolutely adorable. Now all Monk needs is a Harley to go along with that bad do-rag! :D
