Okie dokie, and we're back

Well, the month of craziness has ended, we were officially gone for 16 days in July.

Not even home

yep, not at all.

I'm SOOOOO glad to be home now. I had a fantastic friend who we owe big time who looked out for our yard and garden and made sure we had something besides burned up plants to come home to. We owe her a really nice dinner or something. Probably with vegetables from our garden ;). I went to two family reunions, Lagoon, Arizona and Las Vegas all in the car. That's right folks, no plane tickets here, just a lot of hours in the car. So many in fact that the old portable DVD player died in the middle of the mess. Have no fear though a new one was purchased. That is why our children are still breathing :). I rediscovered that I really don't like hot weather and that I hate what a dirty, horrible town Las Vegas is. (Sorry to all you readers who love it, I just can't believe, and I say this at the risk of sounding horribly prudish, how much women are preyed upon in that town) But, all is well, we are home and school starts in three weeks, I need to do school shopping, get ready to have a busy month with Pampered Chef and just enjoy the remainder of my summer. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow but it's school registration and swimming lessons and the gym tomorrow as well as clean the mess my kids made of the house today while we all relaxed.

Oh, the most important news of the day is that Cakes is 5 years old!!!! Our sweet beautiful girl entered the world five years ago. We got her a littlest pet shop house and she is in heaven. Happy Birthday my sweet beautiful girl, I am so glad to have you for a daughter!

Glad you are home, I'll have to call you. I feel bad I didn't call on our birthdays like I usually do, but I knew what a crazy month you were having and figured it would be better when you had a minute to talk. Can't wait to see pictures and hear about all your adventures.

Shandail- hee hee, I hope I can still run! I did go to the gym this morning, I'm definitely feeling the difference a month has made, you'll probably run in circles around me!

J- I'm so glad to have her! and yes, we are glad to be back too

Karen- no worries, I think I was either running or getting ready to so it's no big deal, how has the no spending gone? Us, yeah, it's been and expensive month.

bon- thanks for the comment! Ya, there is much to love, the kids loved the awesome pool at our casino and the food is always fun. We're considering going down there again in the winter and spending some time for a few days, we'll see, the casino had a theatre, arcade, pool, etc. We could just stay in the casino and stay away from the naked lady pictures. We'll see, now is not the time to think about getting in the car again.
