We had a great weekend! Emma had her VBS assembly on Friday evening. It was about 100 degrees in the church, I thought I was going to pass out. But, luckily everyone survived the evening. Emma had such a great time getting up in front of everyone and singing and dancing to their VBS songs. I definitely have a performer on my hands. She managed to be standing directly in the front of everyone, right in the middle. The rest of her class was not really interested in singing and dancing, so they sort of sat off to the left of the group and played. By the end of the little assembly, Emma had had enough and yelled up to me "mama! i'm really thirsty! can you please bring me your water bottle!!!???" It was cute. She is growing up so fast!

My brother and sister-in-law came up Friday night as well. They brought their new puppy Link. We had a fun time hanging out on Saturday, while the guys hit up the pub and went to see Harry Potter...which I had already seen on opening day. Geek much? We ended the day with a trip out to dinner and some brews on my mom's deck. It was overall a great time. I wish they lived closer so that we could do it more often. It doesn't help that this summer has been crazy for them since Cara's sister got married, they bought a house, and acquired a new member of their family. Hopefully after we get home from our vacation and we all attend a good friend's wedding, we can get into a better visiting schedule.

On tap for this week? Figuring out what one brings to a camp that is just about as far away from civilization as possible. OK, that isn't completely correct. I'm sure there is a lot going on in Canada, right over the border, however we do not have passports, nor do the kiddies, and for some reason they passed a law that says we can't use our birth certificates anymore...glad that hadn't passed when I was in high school. And we won't really be roughing it. There is electricity, indoor plumbing, a kitchen with appliances...what there is not...internet. We shall see how that goes. At least we will be gone when TSHTF with all this debt ceiling BS. We already told our friends (who we are renting the camp from) that we might just stay up there for good!


  1. We had a great weekend too! It was so fun to see you all again :) Have fun getting ready for your trip!

  2. Sounds like a fun, relaxing and great weekend! Can't wait to hear what you decide to bring on that trip....a trailer, perhaps?
