'First' Day of School

I was forced to take a first day of school picture today.   I tried telling her that we are still in the same school year.  She insisted that it's new because she has all new classes.  So we took a picture in the cold rain!  The 'fog' behind her is my dryer vent!  :) Oh.  And her class was supposed to start at 9:30 but was postponed until 10 due to icy conditions.

Cabo Trip

While we were in Cabo in October, we took an ATV tour.  Best. Excursion. Ever!  The area was beautiful and it was just the three couples that we were travelling with....very, very fun. 
They took pictures there for us....and I, of course, got some of my own.  Theirs are first.

 They took us through a little 'zoo' area first.  They gave us seeds and these birds came down and ate out of our hands.
 Swings for bar stools.  I wonder whose bright idea this was!  Lets put drunk people on moving objects!  And yes, we did see a tipsy lady fall.  And yes, we did laugh our butts off.  The lady sitting beside Rod and I had to leave that night because we knew she was going to know we were laughing at her. 
 The dinner cruise that took us out to the arch.

 That little rock is covered with sea lions.
 This dinner cruise usually has 3 to 4 times the people on it.  But because of the hurricane, it had just a small handful.  Made it a much more pleasant trip.  See Rod sporting his new Thirty-One bag?  ;)
 That roof on the bar had been blown off during the storm.  They rebuilt it while we were there.  Even on vacation, Rod has to supervise!  He was seriously just standing in the pool watching the guys work.
 These are my pics from the ATV excursion.  I had sooooo many more.  Mostly scenery pics.  It was just very beautiful and more green than normal because of the recent rain.

 My first, and only, selfie...ever.
 Out through the desert....
 And straight onto the beach!
 That guy on the yellow ATV is the photographer.  He would fly past us and over the hills to 'hide' and take pictures of all of us going past.
 Rod had no clue where he sat!  I don't know if he even realized he was holding 'her' knee. 

Pumpkin Patch

Widget's preschool took a field trip to the pumpkin patch.
 They got to pick out a little pumpkin.....
 and then they painted them.

 He wanted a whale from the face painter.


All of these 'catch up' pictures are going to be badly out of order.  I have no clue where to start, so I just picked a trip. 
I know this was before Thanksgiving.  We went to the lake house to do a little fishing.

 Goofy was the only one that caught anything that day.

 We switched docks...just in case you thought it looked different.  ;)  Two of our neighbors have their docks already in and usable. 
 That's Widget's.  Apparently, he got bored by not catching anything.

 WAY down there by the rows of trees on the end is where we found the bear droppings.  Our mailbox is out there.
 Our pathetic little campfire.  When we went for Thanksgiving we had a much better fire going.
 This was taken at 7:30 in the evening!!!  It happens every time wee go to the lake. 
 This is the lighter Rod used to build our sad little fire.  Why did I take its picture?  Because that was taken at preschool the day AFTER we came home.  It rode the entire way home from North Carolina in that little spot!


OK.  It looks like we're back in business!!!  I guess I will try to catch up on all the fall/early winter pics that didn't get posted.  Keep checking back...and I'll try to do better with more frequent posts.  :)


I'm just posting this as a test.  I was having technical difficulties (sort of stuck on the fence), but wanted to get the blog up and running again.  Let's hope this works.
