Mosquitos, fish and a wedding thrown in for good measure........

I am finally sleeping in my own bed. We hauled in last night and boy it felt great to curl up in familiar settings. Don't get me wrong, I love vacations, but it just feels good to know routine once again.

None the less, I had a great time. I spent two weeks with my boys our family members and friends. I could however do without the 13 hour + drive towing a fifth wheel camper!

It was quite the action packed agenda. We had a few stops along the way. First, Regina. Can't go back to Saskatchewan with a child and not visit both sets of grandparents! Just a couple of days relaxing and catching up with everyone.

Next stop, Wordsworth. The farm. A place to gather all of Trevor's family for the trek up to Yorkton for a wedding. Congratulations to Terris and Sandi! May you have many years of happiness. Thank you for letting us share in your day.
It was a great time. And, it was nice to see Trevor so excited to see many of his childhood friends that you never seem to get a chance to see when you visit home but never have enough of a chance.

I did have a bit of a chuckle at Jake though. This was his first wedding experience and we got him all pumped up for the big party. The one thing he knew he was ready for was the chance to dance his little heart out, because honestly, he's like a dancing machine! So, time to hit the dance floor. Jake skips all the way there and is thrilled to see other kids to play with. So he hops on the floor and joins them. Well, no sooner had he joind the kids, and he is gently but promptly escorted off the floor by the cute little flower girl! Poor Jake, it broke his little heart. All he wanted was to shake a leg and he got shuffled off. Tears spilled. Poor kid finally got his chance to dance and he did. And he was quickly tuckered out.

The next morning all the family packed up and began in the convoy yet again. Off to the fun part, camping and fishing! The weather was gorgeous - hot and sunny. And yes, I know, it is not supposed to be good for you but I can't help but admire my new golden tan from hanging out fishing on the lake.
The fish didn't bite all that much, they were mostly yearlings and not keepers, but I did manage to snag a 6 pound walleye from the lake, yet again outfishing my husband! He's learned to accept that he has stiff fishing competition every fishing trip we take and is now the runnign joke that he can only outfish me when I am not around! hee hee
The week sure went fast though, and now we are home and back to the old ho hums of the everyday schedule......laundry, work, cleaning......sigh.
However, while I was gone I still managed to stay busy with a small amount of scrapping. I snuck in one more page to Bigi Digi contest and played with photoshop. It was a great way to kill the time during the driving.
Lastly, I wanna give a shout out to A while back they asked me to write an article about why I scrapbook. What an exciting honor! Thank you very much to Stacy Smith. You can check it out right here.
And that is me in a nutshell. Later folks!
