I’m a bad blogger…

3 Aug

… sorry about that!  We’ve been busy this summer with house projects (mostly) and road-tripping (to San Diego!) and sports and family visits and bug catching (not the sickness kind, the creepy, crawly kind) and baking and knitting (because Idaho really doesn’t have a summer!).  Yup.  A lot of stuff.  All very, very fun, and I am totally loving our mild summer!

Here are some pictures of what I’ve been up to while I’ve been busy NOT blogging.

Our best Easter picture…. (ya, it’s been that long!)

It’s a road trip!  Complete with antler sling shot and marine buzz cuts!

We hit up Lake Tahoe on our way down…

And a Padre’s game to get a sneak peek at the new Marine, my bro-in-law, AKA Uncle Drew.

The Petco Park in San Diego is so rad!  It’s built right into the downtown, check it out!

Then we got to hang out with Grambo and RoRo at the Hotel Del Coronado.  This isn’t the best picture, but you get an idea of how gorgeous this place is!  And the beaches are sparkly gold!  We had so much fun!

Micah spent most of his time collecting snails, and carrying them with us everywhere!  We went to the fantastic San Diego Zoo and if you asked him his favorite part? … THE SNAILS!!

A picture of us hanging on the beautiful beaches of Coronado…

We also got to spend time with my brother and his adorable girlfriend, April, who came all the way from Brooklyn, NY!  We haven’t all been together in a really long time, so it was fun to be able to spend Mother’s day and my mom’s birthday together.  Here’s my favorite picture of the trip… my brother pouncing on some weird seaweed creature out in the La Jolla area.

Family Picture!!!  (A Summer Miracle!)  Taken in La Jolla.And now on to the real reason for our trip… Drew’s Graduation!  Here are all 13 cousins on Family Day, sporting their family tees!

And here’s the company honor man himself….

We did a little sight-seeing in San Diego, and here’s Lars and I with the kissing statue in the distance behind us.  It was a great trip, and I have waaay to many pictures that still need to be sorted and posted.

BUT!  At least I’ve broken the blog silence!  I have bunches more to post on, but right now, my messy kitchen is calling me.  :)
How has your summer been?  Has anywhere else had a MILD summer so far?  It has sounded like heat-wave after heat-wave EVERYWHERE… except here!  My hot tip for enjoying the heat if you have it… Margaritas and Misters… that’s right, you heard it here.  They make the heat oooh soo nice!  So go install those mist-masters on your patio this weekend, and you’re welcome.
