For some reason, I took very few pictures while she was here. I just forgot. We took the kids to Wonder Place one day while she was here. The kids had a blast. We spent most of Saturday at the lake and yesterday, we went to the zoo. It was pretty lame. It was CRAZY hot outside, a lot of the animals were hiding in the shade and the zoo here is pretty small to begin with. We spent more time in Cafe Africa cooling off and drinking water than anything else. Cara and I (and Steve - shhhhh) are both now addicted to Army Wives. My sweet friend, Michelle sent me the first season on DVD. I had never seen it but I had heard that it's a pretty accurate depiction of life as a military spouse - with a little added drama. There was an episode where two of the wives where saying goodbye to their husbands as they left for deployments. I cried. It was a little TOO real for me. But we had fun watching it together and just relaxing together.
So, today is back to normal. Steve is at work. Well, sort of. Here's a text message conversation Steve and I have been having over the last half hour:
Steve: This sucks
Me: That bad?
Steve: Worse than expected
Me: Have you puked yet?
Me: More than once?
Steve: Puked twice...pretty violently
Me: Is it all over?
Steve: For today....
And conversations we have tomorrow will probably be similar. Poor guy.
On a less gross note, here are some pictures that we did take this week:
Cara and I putting the royal icing flowers that we made onto my birthday cake
Steve got me the new phone, bluetooth (for use around the house) and new bottle of my favorite perfume. My parents got me the new watch and money for some time at the spa :-) Steven got me the beautiful flowers (and is still reminding me that he got me beautiful flowers!)
We did not bring the baby swing to LR - Jack's first swinging experience....
hanging from the canoe trailor at the lake.
Away they go!
Gabby took off her shoes, put one in the lake, and watched it float away. Crazy girl. Steve had to take the canoe out to get the crock.
And now you're all caught up!
