Camping Part Deux

Wrapped up the camping adventure with my sister & her family. The cousins had so much fun together that Paige said we should live closer to each other. Cindy came back by saying we should move because we turbo through home improvement projects! Ha! I would love to bulldoze my house and build my dream home right on the same lot. Our neighborhood is just too great. Take today for instance; I asked my neighbor if we could borrow his chain saw to cut up a fallen branch and he said he would take care of it for me. Nice. Then I sit outside on my porch and watch my neighbor across the street chat it up with my kids and then hand them a bag of fresh picked cherries. Too nice. I love it here. (Don't worry Patti, I haven't forgotten about your late night contributions to my baking extravaganzas. Love ya too. And Tara, if you actually read my blog - I miss ya girl.)
Thanks Groots! We had a blast with your family and we love you lots. And thanks Te Slaas for letting them borrow your camper for the weekend.

That new family portrait on the left of the blog...wow, someone has long, lean and tanned legs! If those are yours - congrats. If they are hubbies...not sure what to say :)

Hey Brenda - that's funny that you noticed that because as soon as I saw that picture I thought, are those my legs or Jeff's? ;)

They are in fact mine - so thanks!

BTW, I kind look like I'm giving birth again ... LOL! OH WELL! They are lined up in birth order ...

You are lucky to have so much family near you! I chatted with Lisa in the back yard yesterday. I'd have to go to Belgium to chat with my sister! Although we are going to spend a week in Wisconsin soon with them.

And I thought the same thing about your legs, too funny. You guys look great! Glad that you are back.
