Ketchup

No need to worry! I'm still alive and kickin', just totally neglecting my blog-digity responsibilities. What? You didn't even notice my absence? *sniff sniff* Oh, ok.

Now that summer is finally here, we jam-packed all sorts of summertime shenanigans into last week.

Since we haven't seen the sun since the Bush administration, Bev and I packed up the families and schlepped to the beach where we cooked burgers and hotdogs and then plunked our behinds on some beach chairs and baked our skin to a well-done crisp.


Good times as always with the B&J clan.

The following day, my Dad took me and the kids to the nawth country to visit Santa's Village. Ahhhhhh, nothing like a hot day full of Christmas carols.

We had a fabulous day and the kids insisted on sitting on all sorts of things and having their pictures taken.
Sitting on reindeer
Sitting on a really large snowman with legs.

Sitting on a bull.

Sitting on lambs. OK, I drew the line when they sat on Baby Jesus.

And then apparently the folks at Santa's Village seemed to run out of ideas for Christmas themed statues....
Sitting on a freakishly large bunny... what the hell does that have to do with Christmas?


Ummmm, sitting on antlered dinosaur. What the???..... OK, let's move on.

I got a glimpse of the future when Morgan and Courtney took off on the Tin Lizzys.
"So can I call you sometime?"
"Morgan! Be home by 7pm!... Hey! That better mean I'm #1!!!!!!"
They grow up so quickly....

Saturday I dropped off Morgan at Girl Scout camp. It's her first time at a sleep over camp and she'll be gone for an entire week! I'm sure she'll handle it fine, but Joe and I on the other hand.....
When it was time for me to leave, she was already deep into a project. As I said good bye no less than 20 times, she couldn't be bothered to even look up and wave.
I made it a full day and a half before I called the camp to check on her. They reported she's been having a great time and participating in all the projects. However, this morning her unit had a cookout breakfast and she got a bit homesick for about a half hour but the counselors made her wash all the dishes redirected her and she was fine.
I'll try not to check in again, but I can't make any promises.

LMAO! You crack me up! Morgan & Courtney - watch out. 7 going on 17, for sure.

And I'm glad my teeth don't look so vampiric in the enlarged version of that beach pic. On my cell phone I looked like I had fangs down to there!

Elliott said...

Nice stems! Wait, there was more to read after I got past the first pic?

I haven't seen the tin lizzies since I was three or four! Wow, there's a childhood memory flooding back!

But seriously, nice stems. Yow.

Wow. Couldn't help but notice that 3 out of 4 commenters were dudes. Interesting. Very interesting.

Beach trip looked fun. Loved your "meals on wheels".

Santa's Village looks terrifying.

Nice tits, girls.

What? Like I wasn't going to mention it.

Bev said...

"terrifying!" You nailed it, gf. It's CRAZY CHRISTIAN LAND!

I'm so totally landlocked here in the land of BFE! I am totally jealous of how close you guys are to the beach!

Mala said...

Bev - No one's lookin' at your teeth. trust!

Elliott - Thanks, I put that picture up just for you!
And the Tin Lizzies, I remember when I actually thought I was driving them. Oh the stress.

OM - Thanks, I put that picture up just for you!
And don't resist, embrace the beachy ways... we have to around these parts since summer only lasts like 3 weeks.

Mjenks - Thanks, I put those pictures up just for you! Your turn, my dear!

Samsmama - Thanks, I put that picture up just for you! (no really, I did).
We were the object of envy at the beach with our clever meals-on-wheels. hee.

Bev - yes, that corner of the park does get a little creepy, yeah?

OBMJ - You MUST come visit!!!!!! We have mountains, lakes and ocean all within an hour's drive.

PorkStar said...

janiece said...

Oh Mala, one of these days I have to get out there to see you! Just reading all of this I burst out laughing and Ted is lie "what?"--of course that is the norm for him but....
If and that's a big if, I ever send Julia to sleep away camp--I'll be calling every hour. I honestly couldn't handle it! And she would definitely not look up as I left. I'm sure Morgan is having a blast.

Looks like a great time was had by all! As for the antlered dinosaur? Santa's village must really be magical! Or else someone was smoking something when they thought that one up!

Frank Irwin said...

Bev has teeth? Let me look again...

Oh, there they are. Above the cleavage.

Bev said...

Eyes up here, Franky!

To be fair, in Frank's fantasies, I doubt my teeth come into play.

:-o
