Blog Break

This weekend one of my most faithful blog readers, my dad, went into the hospital. We don't know how long he will be there. Needless to say I have a had very little time to do anything. I'll will try to post as often as I can. Thanks for understanding.

And yes that is a peanut dressed like a Dr. My home town has a permanent display of peanuts around town and this one is in the loby of the hospital.

Happy Birthday Aunt Grammaw

This weekend we celebrated Aunt Grammaw's birthday. The theme for her birthday was the color green. My nephew picked out the theme because green is his favorite color, and like all good Aunt Grammaw's she went with it. So I went with it also and made her a green laundry bag to take on her trips. She requested a laundry bag and it was so easy to make. I think she likes it.
Happy Birthday Aunt Grammaw!

Going for a Ride

We went and visited my family this weekend. A trip home always means a trip to the mall to ride the carousel. Boll Weevil loved the ride and I enjoyed seeing my family.

Waterpark Day

You can't go to the Dells and not go to the water parks. We went to Mt. Olympus. We enjoyed watching the people, but we didn't swim much because the water was way to cold for us Southerns to swim in.

Boat Ride on the Dells

One of things we had to do when we were in the Dells was to tour both the Upper and Lower Dells.
Boll Weevil really enjoyed the boat. I made sure that his head and arms were covered up from the sun. I love this picture he looks like such an old man.

The stone formations were just so interesting.

My aunt, on a boat, taking pictures. I had to have proof not that she is taking pictures, but that she is on a boat. I think she really enjoyed it.

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.

If you ever travel somewhere that has a river and has boat tours do them the first part of your vacation. You will find out a lot about the area and about different things you would like to see while visiting.

Root Beer Float

I like Root Beer normally, but the root beer I had in the Dells was wonderful. It was locally brewed and most was made with honey. Bo doesn't even like Root Beer and he was drinking it all the time.

One afternoon we all wanted a root beer float. This is me drinking mine. Boll Weevil wanted some too, but don't worry we didn't give him any.

This store sold nothing but root beer. And even had three kinds on tap. Our favorite of the week was Sprecher.
