Lap Harp

We made a trip to the Asheville Farmer's Market and Oliver found this wonderful lap harp. I think I might have to buy him one.

We had a wonderful time camping even if we were asked to leave. Well, maybe I should rephrase that... the 2 teenagers we foolishly invited to join us, were asked to leave. It seems they helped themselves to the contents of the lost and found. Hmm. maybe I should have thought more about what inviting children that aren't biologically ours would mean. Next time, I promise myself, I will adhere to the 2 moves ahead rule--life is like a chess game... Each time we go camping we learn a few things that make the next trip easier.

Some things we learned from this camping trip:

Don't bring teenagers
Bring fire wood
Bring metal grate for fire
Easier snacks...
Bring floaties
More bug spray
More folding chairs

We went tubing, which was great fun. Who knew there was a great place no too far from our house. We plan to buy our own tubes and go more often. Oliver loved it.

We are deciding whether or not we are going to the beach this weekend. I still haven't decided. I think it might turn out to be a last minute decision...

In the Weeds

me in a helicopter

I used to have a boss who would say "I'm in the weeds" when she was crazy busy. In case you wanted to know, I AM IN THE WEEDS.

I just got back from a motorcycle rally in Austin, TX for work. It was great, but the internet connection at the hotel wasn't working and the cell phone reception was horrible.

What did we do before the web?

This week I am preparing for a dealer meeting and trying not to lose my mind.

Our family vacation is scheduled for the week after next and I haven't even thought about it.

Life is moving so fast.

I did a couple of cool things in Austin that made me think that I need to take the time to have more fun. I rode in a helicopter and I rode a motorcycle. It was so invigorating.
