Countdown to our vacation...

We finally received confirmation on our airline tickets so we're off to the eastern part of the U.S. very soon! We're flying into Atlanta on August 13 and will spend a day or two with my cousin and BFF, Lisa and her husband Bob, who we haven't seen in at least ten years. Then we're driving (we love road trips!) to West Virginia to visit Ken's brother, Scott and his wife Lucinda. We'll spend a day or two there then make a big loop to come back to Atlanta, driving through as many states as we can. We want to see as much as possible since we probably won't get back that way again very soon. We'll be flying home the day before I have to report back to school. The girls will be home taking good care of our little man, D.C. I can't wait!
P.S. - I've added a picture of me and Lisa from our visit. We enjoyed catching up and getting closer--it's been over 10 years since we've seen each other!

Mt. Rubidoux

This summer has been extremely relaxing for me. I've spent the days gardening, reading, talking to my girls, occasionally scrapbooking and working to get healthier. Ken has been working on his health and fitness as well and is now accompanying me (and usually Kelley) up Mt. R on Saturday and Sunday mornings (we attend church on Saturday evenings). Of course, he is beginning to make it a competition from week to week: How many miles can we walk this weekend? How many times and how many ways can we go up and down the mountain? Well, not too many since my bladder doesn't hold out that long! (Oops--too much information.)
