Our Weekend - A Preview

We had a fabulous weekend. I have so many stories to tell, but they all involve pictures which are not working on our very sick computer right now, so they will have to wait.

But I will give you a hint. They involve painting the living room (yay!) and camping with four kids (fun! and insane!) and the whole family playing baseball. But for now, I will leave you all guessing as to the outcome of the painting and the camping.

I took a lot of pictures this weekend. It's a shocker, I know, I never take pictures of my kids. I cannot imagine what it was like before digital cameras. If we were using the old school 24 exposure film, I would have gone through ten rolls in three days. I love the digital age! Well, except for the fact that the digital age also brought about the hacker age, and now my computer is about to be thrown into the pond. (Don't worry, I am smart enough to never actually throw the computer into the pond, I will dispose of it properly no matter how often I threaten to drop kick it or set it on fire.)

I am starting the process of dreaming of the day I will get a new computer. I do this often, I look at For Sale signs in lawns even though we are not in the market for a house, and now I am looking at new computers online. Because I like to dream of computers that can hold thousands of pictures and go online without shutting themselves off every ten minutes or so, and are shiny and don't have dust in the keyboards. And you know they will be working in six hours, which is more than I have right now.

Anywhoo, the house is calling me. I have to return everything to it's rightful place after painting and clean up after camping. I think we might have taken a large portion of the sand bar home with us, and we had to drain and re-fill the tub halfway though bathtime last night.

I love when kids get so dirty that you cannot tell what is dirt, what are new bruises, and what is suntan until you scrub them a couple of times and see what comes off.

Grant just took his diaper off and is running around naked. Gotta go!

Glad you guys had a great weekend!

I too love it when you try to scrub off the dirt only to realize that it is a tan!

I got a Dell Inspiron or something like that at Best Buy for under $600 - BUT I don't know the photo holding capacity of it. :)
