Bad Blogger

Yes, that is me scolding myself.

I was doing so well during July up until vacations began.

Here is a lightning speed recap and a few teaser pics (from iPhone *sigh*)...

  • -Cameran's first trip to Chincoteague in Mid July beach trip with Pappy and Nanny (pony ride and all)
  • -Swimming with "Aunt" Melody and faux cousins
  • -Ryan finishes third grad course of summer (brutal for us both since I am the proof-reader of all things BS)
  • -14 hour road trip to Illinois (not too bad for a 12 hour trip with a 16 month old--which I would like to point out-- that I drove all of but 3 hours.
  • -Relaxing at the Taj Mahal (aka Grandma and Papa's monstrous house in the middle of a s*@%-ton of corn)
  • -Going to the ER only to find out Cameran's fever of 102 is due to an ear infection---Umm, hello ear tubes, isn't that what you are for???
  • -"Swimping" with Gabriella, Isabelle and the rest of the family
  • -Coming to fully appreciate doors WITH functional locks (*imagination necessary*)
  • -Day-tripping to House on the Rock in Wisconsin and New Glarus for dinner
  • -More relaxing and shopping
  • -Attempting to leave on a Tuesday, but not succeeding until Friday
  • -Chicago White Sox game at Cellular Field on final Wednesday (perk of said extension thanks to the lemon car parts that were ordered by the garage)
  • -A super awesome surprise from the family that will make it much easier to actually make buying a new house a reality sooner rather than later
  • -Driving home and stopping "past Cleveland", checking in, then realizing that we were in fact still close to Cleveland thanks to the super ghetto dance party happening near the back entrance.
  • -Walking in said back hotel entrance to a bunch of drunk guys choraling, "Hey big girl, you got wings in that bag?" and "Mmmm Ima go for some wings right now" by the girl with them.
  • -Family sleeping in a King bed thanks to the institutional-style crib from the hotel.
  • -NOT sleeping (well) in the bed
  • -Getting home and being surprised with our new electronics that we "had to have" sitting on the porch
  • -Unpacking
  • -Settling back into reality that is having only one week off until a new crop of 7th graders come.
  • -Cameran receiving her 4th EEG and waiting for the results.
  • -Hanging out with friends
  • -Staying up way too late because of being accustomed to Central time. (Which makes me think of what people who live on the cusp of time zones do if they live in one, but work in another. That would suck.)
On the way to Chincoteague!
Ready to brave the sand for the first time!

Steamed crabs.  (Sorry to all who have no clue what these are, but to East Coasters they are heaven.)
Does this bikini make my butt look big??
Aww, do we have to go????
And that was a little taste of Cami's first trip to the beach.
