Where did I go?!


I can't believe I haven't posted since the 21st of June!  Sorry to be so lame!  I was on vacation as you know and then I drove our RV to Oklahoma.  And then this week has been really busy.  But I think that now I am back on track.  I haven't scrapped anything to share with you today but I do have a couple of photos of my vacation etc that might tide you over until tomorrow when I will share my newest project from Crafter's Companion.  And if I get super scrappy today maybe I will have something else to share too. ha
Our friends, Mike and Holly
Bergstrom Vineyard
Gorgeous view of Oregon

We had a great time in Oregon with our friends, Mike and Holly and their dog, Frank.  Frank had his own travel blog going while we were gone so everyday we had to find something fun for Frank to be photographed doing.  It was very funny.  You can check out his blog HERE if you are interested. 

I took 3 kids, 3 dogs, my brother and a bird on the trip to Oklahoma in the RV.  It went amazingly smoothly.   We left at 6:30am and drove all day.  We spent the night at the Santa Rosa RV park in Santa Rosa, New Mexico.  We made pretty good time because normally I wouldn't make it into Santa Rosa until about 9pm but we were there by 8pm. 

We got up early the next day and drove on into Oklahoma.  We got to the house and just relaxed.  The kids immediately got out their video games and started playing!  lol  
My sister's Daughter in law, Rachel and my sister, Jody the birthday girl

My sister's 50th birthday was yesterday on the 30th.  We had a nice girl's day out on Friday the 29th.  We went out to lunch, got our nails done and did a little "birthday" shopping.  She spent her actually birthday with friends out of town but yesterday we hosted her birthday party here.  Tons of friends and food.  It was a great day and she seemed to really have a great time.
Poor Georgia

Saturday my hubby and my 2 little kids flew in to join us.  And yesterday 2 kids went to my mom's to day and two kids went to my hubby's parents house to stay.  Poor Georgia had to stay with mommy and daddy.   I guess 4 year olds are more work for grandparents.  lol

So now we are back to today.   My dd and I are just hanging out here at the house today.  Hubby has to work so we won't talk to him until tonight.  Are you thrilled with my update?!  lol
