Say "ahhhhhhhhhh"

Going to my parent's home is a little bit like having Calgon take you away. Especially during the summer months when its comfortable outside at any time of day and Grandma's garden is so inviting. Its also a little bit like fat-camp...not the kind where they make you do crazy things like drag sand bags up enormous hills, more like the spa kind where they bring you things to eat like grilled peaches brushed with blood orange infused olive oil. (mmmmm) You WILL eat healthy at mom and dad's house, and you'll probably lose wieght too.

For the kids its like a mecca of legos and construction toys (or dolly's and stuffed animals if that's what you like.) Its quiet, except for when my siblings show up, then its a party, whether mom planned it or not.

Its a nice place to be, and that's where we've been for the past several days. We're home now, with my two big-girls in tow (hooray!) just in time to enjoy one last week of summer vacation before school starts back for Gabe. Now to see what we can do for fun.

See you all in a week or so.

Welcome home

Hey a friend posted this free deal for Makutos Island on my fb wall--maybe we could spend an afternoon letting the kids go crazy there before school starts back up

I hope you have a horrible time. I have nothing but spite for people who gets to have a nice vacation, since I couldn't go to NYC. :)
