A long post..of what has gone on.

Ok so it's been a long time since I've blogged!!
Since then I have said Good-bye, for awhile, to ALL REGUlAR pop for 3 weeks now. I have to say I love my Fountain Coke and my Ice cold Mt.Dew. But for now I have been drinking Diet Sams Choice Cola and Big K's Diet Grape pop. And Kroger brand "Crystal light" Lemonade and Grape drink. Tonight I put 2 packages of the lemonade mix, water and ice and some sliced stawberries and put it in my blender. It was pretty good!!!!

The last weekend in June I got to go to Pilgrim Camp on Saturday night. I got to meet one of my best friends when I was a teenager, Nathan Ranke, his girls for the first time. Nathan is on his 3rd and final trip to Iraq. He had just came back for a few days leave and had just headed back the day before. His oldest girl had been told that when she got up the next morning "Daddy would be back at that night when she wouldn't go to bed, they asked her why she wouldn't go to bed. She said, "because IF I don't go to bed then daddy won't have to leave for work!" :( Let us remember our Troops and their families!
These 2 other little ones belong to another dear friend of mine...that I was close to during my camp days and have tried to keep in touch with thru the years.....Your children are darling Renee! (Emily and Austin)

In other news we paid off our "Granny Getter" It feels so good to have something PAID IN FULL!!!! Thanks to God for helping us pay this off.

JULY 4th~ Headed to Greenville, the Lavys house. We had a blast with several games of corn hole....4 intense games of volleyball.....several people hitting softballs.....riding the go-cart tack.....several rides on 4 wheelers (even a decent ride for my prego sis-in-law, in 1st gear. Yours truly was her driver...we had a very bonding time. LUV YA TASHA!!!)...and of course GREAT FOOD!!!!!

After leaving Lavy's, We headed for Dayton, OH. to start a little Romantic weekend for just Jon and I. We didn't really do anything for our 5 year this was making up for that. We had supper at one of our favs...Fuddruckers..and then ice cream at Friendlys.
The next morning we headed to Cincy...but not before a trip down memory lane and we went to Traders World a really neat Flea Market that I went to growing up. (Or as I over heard one little girl say to her mommy asking if she had ever been to a "Flea Farm")

JON'S Partner in crime!!!

When we got to Cincy...we went down to the docks and rented a was fun but hard work. We were going to go across the bridge to Newport...but with we being out of shape after about 5 min we realized we were not going to make it. Because of the steep incline!! But we had alot of fun riding around for an hour. Then we shared a cheap lunch at another favorite of ours Tumbleweed. Their Texas toothpicks and Chicken Burrito Queso style are delicious.
Then After checking in to our hotel and taking about 1/2 hour nap we headed back down to the docks and got on our "dinner cruise". On the Belle of Cinncinatti. (SP?) It was a romantic ride. A dinner of salad, cheese potatoes, Rolls, Green beand and Carrot mix, some kind of Herbed pasta salad, fried fish, grilled chicken and some kind of delicious steak. And cheese cake for dessert. Jonathan said the cheesecake was great. I was to full. Then we had non-alcholoic Strawberry Daquries. They were yummy and came in cute cups that we got to keep.
We got to see a beautiful sunset.....It was a wonderfully, romantic weekend! Jonathan, Thank you so much for being such a wonderful husband. Thank you for spoiling me and taking me on such a wonderful weekend. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
