let's finish this up now, k?

Our hotel "suite"...pretty nifty really



Miss Molly, wondering why she had to eat baby squash while we
ate at the Oven....no fair!
This is the "San Francisco Oven" and we are really wishin' they
had one of these in the Indy area...



The infamous arch...

These are just a smattering more of our pix from last week...I figured before I moved on to a new week, I would finish that all up!! The snake pic wouldn't let me put a caption under it but he was at the Outdoor World visit we made last Wed. evening before we left...the kids wanted to spend their souvenir money and that was their place of choice...the boys bought a bow and arrow set and Mel and Levi got some stuffed animals (great, just what we need, more of those). At OW, they have mostly stuffed dead animals, my favorite kind, but in the hunting section, we stumbled on this snake, a few really nasty spiders (Missouri tarantula, black widow, brown recluse, o my). I got a pic of the tarantula but the recluse and widow were very uncooperative....I'm getting all wigged out just typing their names. so gross. I know God made them and they serve a purpose...but ew!

David is down in MO again...this time, with his bro, Aaron and friend Jeff once again! He is slated to be there till Easter Sunday...boo hoo. He is staying in one of our suite hotel rooms as shown above...we had a nice weekend with him, though it went by like a whirling dervish (that was for you, Beck)...We went to Patria and that was so refreshing to our spirits...and then to the LifePoint worship service yesterday morning and that was also very renewing to us! Good messages and good things to apply to our lives...God is so good and we are so blessed to be able to worship him in those ways!!

Ok, Miss Molly is fussing, Levi is harrassing her so off I go...by the way, I have been trying to blog all morning but my computer is slower than molasses in January.

Happy St. Patty's Day to you...and top o' the morning to ya! I am not Irish but does Scottish count? David is and so I guess my kids are just a bit!!

OMG, PLEASE DONT GIVE ME DETAILS OF THE SPIDERS!!! Oh, I shiver everytime I look at them! Ask your kids...they know!

What a cool suite! I'm sure it was MUCH better than a dinky hotel room! Like i've said before, so glad you guys are back! I don't ever want you to leave me for that long again. NO VACATION FOR YOU. Thanks for finishing up the week and once again, putting whirling dervish in my mind...over and over...xoxo

I can't believe you have five kids - adorable ones at that. I really like your new pic in the pool.

Hey girlie,

Love the pics. I like the snake especially.

We had a great trip down, and are in a tropical paradise. The flowers are gorgeous, the sun is shining, mid 70's. If only we had our BFF's and the zoo with us life would be perfect!

Hugs,

Why do you guys do so much cool stuff? It's not fair....My life is so ubertastically boring. Who in Heavens name would wanna read about it? Hah!
I'll come up with something, I suppose...maybe blog about how I reached level 40 (and passed it...45!) and got that horse I was talking about.

Gee, I'm a nerd.
