Hm...I don't know why my pics and text turned out the way they did, but oh well. Most of the text comes AFTER the pics..just keep scrolling down, don't worry about it. Ha!



I'm a little burnt. Just got back yesterday later-afternoonish from a fun weekend of camping in VA beach with some girlfriends. Lucky me! It was good, very good. The first night we went out for pizza (I know, I know...turns out we never once cooked a dinner) and it was pure heaven just sitting and talking, and talking, and talking...and not worrying about running home to the kids or paying a babysitter. Sooo happy.

We stayed in a great campground that sits on the sound side of Va beach (did I say that right Elissa and Lindsay?). It only took us 2 hours, yes, 2 hours (thanks to Elissa's persistance) to get the fire started the first night. The 2nd night took much less, only 45! (;










Look at that beach! The first day at the beach was pretty cloudy and windy, but by the afternoon, the sun was out and it was perfect. Day 2 was all sun, not enough sunscreen, and I'm still paying the price with my burnt back.







We took some fun black and whites. "Don't worry about it, we're models".
videorandom video of June that I taped last night. Um...she's so adorable I could spit.

Lindsay was way comfortable with any of the dead sea creatures washing up on shore. I had to get this pic to show Cole. Crazy!




See the helicopter? Va Beach has a Navy (?) base..wait, is the word base? Okay, a Navy ? closeby, and day one was loud helicopters flying by non-stop, and day 2 was even louder fighter jets (cool to watch!) flying by in 5-10 minute intervals. Pretty annoying (so loud we'd have to stop talking), but cool to watch.


Okay, rewind backwards. Brent (Elissa's husband) came with Elissa to drop her off. He was so sad to see his wife go. And Geof.? Not so much..., apparently!!


My hot husband.

The sailing pic was taken Wed. night. Elissa's brother bought a sailboat and I asked if Geof. could tag along one day. He was so happy. I didn't realize until pretty recently (within the last year or so) that sailing is a passion for Geof. He wants us to retire, sell our home, and sail around the world. I'm fine with that..

okay, so where do I start. I am jelous (Sp) of your girls trip. I am happy for you though. You look like you had so much fun! I had to laugh at what you packed. Did WA and hhmm what was it.... ALASKA teach you anything about roughing it????? Darla you crack me up. But I have to say you look much hotter while camping than I do, it must have been the project runway inspiration. And most importantly June-----I can't believe how much she is talking and she is so cute I just want to reach in and kiss her and squeeze her so tight!!!! I only wish my baby will be half as cute as yours. Once again I miss you terribly and am sorry we only corrispond via internet. I always think to call you when it is way too late there. I love you very much !!!!!! And p.s. It IS a navy base you are smarter than you thought;)

Ok so that's way fun and I'm so glad you got to go! Girls trips are the best, mainly because we actually take ourselves to dinner, despite camping and don't feel bad about it either! And yes the 7 minute conversation was great but never enough...we need a girls weekend of our own someday or maybe a girls month? Whatd'ya say?!
