Do popsicles count as a serving of fruit?

I'm Home.
Doesn't feel quite right yet. Maybe when I start working again tomorrow, but maybe not. It's over 100 degrees getting back into Portland and that's always enough to throw me off a bit...thoughts lean towards mixed drinks and waking up slow...which seems A LOT like the vacation I just left...


Most Sunriver mornings started with A LOT of coffee and sun and sometimes a blanket to keep me warm while I woke up with God and the gray squirrels and the birds and the families of deer...

...and the bluest of morning skies.

Donuts for breakfast.



Cotton candy for lunch.

Something greasy for dinner.

Ran out of mixer last night and had to melt two popsicles in the microwave to put in my cup of ice and vodka.

I think I have scurvy.

But...we did get some exercise. Does hot-tubbing count? I had a very interesting late night of Truth or Dare and secret telling with these girls....
...and this boy became a pro at cycling and swimming during this last week...

A lot of bike riding...

A bit of hula hooping...(she was the best out of all age groups in the contest (IMHO!) What a hula girl!

Some swimming... We got Aunt Caroline and Grandma to give the lessons (it works so much better than parental advice!!) I only wish I had a picture of Jack in the pool. He has become a fish!
Sprinkler fun supplied by the firefighters...



and major rope rash involved with the tug of war...
I really did get some exercise... swam laps with the sky as my pool "ceiling" every other morning and went kayaking with Angie one day (LOVED IT!) and although we didn't ride like we were working out, my legs are still sore from bike rides.

Lots of activities just involved loving being with the ones we love...
Listening to music at the Village...

and Ladies Brunch...
Chillin' with Grandpa...
The Fireman's Picnic on the 4th...

It's always a good time and we're already working on getting Daddy to let us stay for a whole month next year.
