threesixfive, days 139 thru 145

this week wrapped up the birthday festivities. sunday i spent the afternoon shopping and eating with my best girlfriends. my mother-in-law was here visiting for a few days,so we did some fun things with her. we had some college kiddos over for game night after youth group on wednesday, and then allen and i left thursday morning for a few days away together (what i asked for from him for my 30th). it was a fabulous week! lots of pictures, so you get multiples on some days.

sunday,day 139
this is the drink I had at brunch. soda water, apple juice, mint leaves, and lemons. so yummy and pretty enough to take a picture of!

me and katie. love her.

monday, day 140
not very excitng, but it's the only picture I have from monday. i took it while we were out shopping. she sure is cute.

tuesday, day 141
we took the kids to a childrens museum, and molly got all her messy out in the art room.

wednesday, day 142
wrapping up game night. this is a tradition we've been doing with this particular group since they were seniors in high school 4 years ago. when they're home for christmas and summer break, they still use our house as a meet up. we love it!

thursday, day 143
the place allen and I stayed had a lot of, well, dead animals. the wolf was the first thing I saw when I opened the door to the lodge. I almost peed my pants.

the cave pool. yes we swam in it!! ok, so i only got in up to my knees; that water was cold!

the door into our room. so pretty.

friday, day 144
we were about half a mile down from enchanted rock, a huge and very popular hiking area. we hiked thursday evening, as well as friday and saturday mornings.

saturday, day 145
i spotted this taxi limo on our last day at the resort, and had to grab a picture of it.

we get the kids back from mimi tomorrow (they went back with her while we were away), then leave monday morning for senior trip to the beach. im ready for some sun and sand!

The last few pics of you and your hubs made me smile. It looks like something me and my hubs would do. :) Your "hotel" looked like fun. Except for the dead animals part, that wolf was a little scary.

The the sun and sand - can't wait to see those pics too.
