I know some people who played hookie on Friday and saw Shrek in 3D. I don't believe I've ever considered doing such a thing, but Friday morning it was easy. I'm thinking vacation has loosened me up a bit.

The parties involved will remain nameless and their identities are surely concealed to you behind those fabulous glasses.

the light

Last week I actually found myself basking in the light at the end of the tunnel. I plan on doing it much more (and often). Hawaii happens to be a beautiful place for end-of-the-tunnel-light basking. Here's some proof:

young love

Nate's cousin got married on Saturday and we got to be there!!!
I love weddings. And I think Grace does too. Its about all she's been talking about for the last several weeks. She wasn't in the wedding mind you, but she knew it was going to be an awesome day. And of course, it was. Here she is looking much too grown up with Josh.

May I tell you I seriously love the stemware containing lemonade and fruit punch. They were feeling very debonair and somewhat older than their years (check out those puckered lips in the picture above!). And for the record, we are a serious no-kissing-cousin kind of family.
The reception was right on the harbor. Check out the view!

Things only got better. Guess who caught the bouquet:

Guess who had enough and decided to sleep on top of the table:
Guess who danced with the most eligible bachelor and then went on to shake her groove thing the ENTIRE time (and later told us, "it was like I was the center of attention or something"):

The bride and groom had a bubble send-off. I think it was a little too soapy for their liking...
But we sure had fun!
We tried for a fabulous family picture. I think we got one. How many of you can claim a family picture with a perfect bubble in front of your husband's face that almost resembles a monocle?

Congratulations Rachel and Tanner! Wishing you an eternity of happiness, joy, and soap bubbles!

Work it Girl!

Perhaps I should add to my day job and become a hair dresser. No doubt I do a smokin' job for crazy hair day.

copy cat

Is it just me, or does this gal look like she's about to take her surgical boards? She's got the outfit right...

the deputy sheriff

This deputy sheriff works hard.

So hard in fact it is difficult for him to stay awake.

Three minutes before this hard slumber occurred, he was animatedly talking with His Girl about the intricacies of undercover work (y'see she's an undercover cop, at least in this town)

Apparently that knowledge allows him to rest at ease.

we were having fun, right?

Um, right. (Usually.)

Is an all-you-can-eat buffet what you really want?

It is for Grace, she can eat her weight in pasta.

It really isn't for Jimmy - all he ate was saltines and grated cheese.

At least there were no obvious hookers present during that juncture.

(Were we really having fun? Yes, most of the time)

stranger in the night

So this man shows up at my house tonight, says he's my husband, the father of my children, and that he plans to be around all weekend. He offered to put the children to bed, so I think I'll let him stay. Rumor has it, he's also made me some reservations at the spa tomorrow. Where has this handsome hero been?

dam hot

Last weekend we went to Vegas and to add to an already educational adventure, I decided the kids and I would go to the Hoover Dam. I had a lot of fun that day with lots of dam jokes.

Here I am - Hot Dam!
