Gone to camp

Ah, summer. There is nothing I love more than the hot, sunny days and all the fun they bring. Only trouble is, it keeps me so danged busy that I've been neglecting my blog.

If I had the time right now I'd write a whole post about the glorious Children's Festival (pictured above) that I grew up on and now have the glee of taking my boys to. I'd do a post on our yard, and how much I love my hydrangea, hanging geraniums, state fair zinnias, and Taylor's amazing landscaping know-how. I'd tell you all about swimming with the boys, about making awesome tacos and french bread (not together). I'd show you my sweet flip-flop tan line, which is--let's be honest--a total miracle. I'd inform you of Taylor and my movie marathons, which have included The Lord of the Rings (who knew? I actually like it now.) and Harry Potter (still haven't seen the new one, and am DYING to!) while folding laundry. I'd share with you my happy moments with my family--including the pool and scones for dinner and a pinata (just because), all in the expanse of my parents' gorgeous, forest-like yard. I'd certainly dedicate a whole post to So You Think You Can Dance, because let's get one thing straight--we are obsessed! Best show on TV as far as I'm concerned.

But sorry, can't. That little summary will have to do. Because I am off to Girls' Camp with my church gals tomorrow. If you know me from the days of my youth, you know that G's Camp is pretty much my favorite thing ever. Only being totally in charge of a little flock of the girls and leaving behind my own tender little flock makes camp a lot more stressful than it used to be!

Anyway, enjoy your summer. Drink it up. Let's reconvene in a week or so.

Have a great time at camp!!! Wish I was going to be with you all. As we passed out ward camp shirts, etc on Sunday I was so sad I wasn't going to be there with the girls! But, It will be nice to see Rachel graduate in Rexburg this week. smile

Like I always say, "summaries are better than nothing!" Wait, do I say that? No, but I just there!
I too have a tender spot in my heart for girls camp...enjoy and can't wait to hear from you again soon, dear.

nice dixie chicks tag on this post.

I too love the pink martini pandora radio station. I would suggest looking up a carla bruni station next time you're looking for music.. or nouvelle vague.
