Hello, Friends!

I've missed you!  Especially since I've gotten home and back to real life and my regular schedule.  I took over 900 pictures (most of them have to do with football and little league baseball and the zoo ... but I got some other totally awesome photos too.)  We had a wonderful time with the fam.

I'm still working on getting everything developed for the family and posted on Facebook.  I'll post some on here in the morning, and then start working on pulling together last week's Nike's "The Opening" and other stories.  There is lots of cool stuff coming up.

Actually, it was nice to get away and be so busy.  I am worn out and sunburned, but am very happy and full of good ideas.  Here are the sunburn pictures:

Dang, I'm so glad that I forked out the money for the new bra.  Now, if I could only get one for my stomach.  At least the straps didn't fall down and my back didn't hurt.   Oops!  Did I really post that, lol?  Well, if you are not a grandma yet, just wait. 

See you in the morning!

LOL. It's time for ME to get one of those 'spensive bras, too, Kathy! I just keep telling myself they're too expensive and I should wait until I lose weight! ....which I've about given up on again..!!

I thought I took a lot of pictures, but I think you have me beat by far! And a good bra is so worth it! Cute picture!

Look at all that vitamin D you got for your bones. Looking forward to the pictures of your athletic grands.

The photos are lovely. You do look like you've been getting some sun.

Thank you, everybody, I was happy. Patti, thanks for pointing out the good part of being in the sun. That burn has turned to a lovely tan now, thank goodness. It is the Jourgens lotion, I swear. But I did put on real sunscreen the next time that the sun came out.
