Even Ethan asked me last night, “Mom, where have you been for the last month?” The answer: I’ve been on a rollercoaster. The same one y’all are on. I know you are… you don’t even have to tell me. How are you enjoying the ride? I’m usually really good on rollercoasters; I’ve never had a weak stomach. But this time I found myself on the low end a few times, and a little disoriented. But it’s all part of the ride. Here are some scenes from my rollercoaster summer:
Spending way too much time staring at the computer:
Taking some fun photographs of fun people... love these guys. Check out their band at Sad But True.
Hanging out in my sister’s backyard in Salem, Utah. Hers is the backyard that all backyards wish they could be. This was taken right before the mother of all barbecues, which was followed by a weird cross between frisbee, football and skeet shooting (don’t ask me how to explain that better), and then that night over the pond... the best, closest, and scariest fireworks EVER.
Did I mention, camping at one of the most beautiful places I’ve been: Glacier National Park in Montana.
Blowing in the wind:
Hanging out with some favorite people:
Throwing rocks at stuff:
Catching a few winks (best line from Twilight: “I like to watch you sleep.”)
Starting a bug collection (thank you, Montana). Seriously... you know you can click on any of my photos to see them full-size... click on this one if you want to be really grossed out:)
Hanging out with my adorable grandson, Jif... and his very cute mom and dad.
Watching DK be a grandpa:
And finding a little time in between to play games with my peeps.
All in all, not a bad way to spend a summer. How is yours going?
