Family vacation...

We had a wonderful week on the Emerald Coast...Maggie, Adam and the children took me along...lucky me!

Baby Tal...moments before he realized he could walk straight into the Gulf of Mexico

Seaside Church. The most charming church!

Cool Henry, before he broke his sunglasses

Could not get enough of this view...

I want this....beside my garage. Mark my words, it will appear...thanks to the ever talented Jake.

Adam trying on clothes outside the store...why not?

Obligatory cow photo. They are farm kids after all...

A swing to dream about. Lucky for Jake I do not have room.

The quest for the illusive family photo begins

And continues

And continues...

We give up.

The perfect flying baby Tal!

Fin and her friends... I will miss her early morning visits in my bedroom

Yep, my morning alarm has nothing on this wake up calls ever!

We did a lot of this...

Like 5 days worth...

Like I said, lots of bike riding! How we already miss it!

End of the day fun with their Daddy

Lunch with quite a view

Best days ever!!!

The dreaming continues...

So, I went to Chicago for work....

And had the teensiest hotel room...EVER

I finished my 160 hours needed for recertification....and then discovered that I have to take a test. A TEST. I am 55 years of age. I still hate tests. Oh, I'll get around to it...someday.

I had dinner with dear friends...Mallory and Robin

She thinks it's her office...when I'm gone. Maybe she can take my test!???

Yes, I did this. Rather proud of myself! Well, actually my friends did the work. I organized!

Asthmatic tendencies...poor Fin

Cute Kate returned to DC.Poor kids, never have fun. Ever.

Cole volunteered. I'm proud!

I went to Memphis with Mil, to visit Annie

And Beale Street

And Kitty at the Peabody

Lucy and Hannah with Annie in her dorm room

Oh, well yes, we did eat some BBQ. It was Memphis after all!

Madeline gave me one of theses bracelets, or wrist jewelry as Jared calls them... Me and Guiliana....yes, I'm special!

Nutty, Angie, Madeline, Maggie and I embarked on St. Louis....helped the local economy. 24 hours pre Ferguson verdict, thankfully

Yes, thanksgiving! Millie brined her turkey. Pretty amazing!

My gravy making assistant

Sparkling grape juice. Really...

I am grateful!

I was SO thankful. I had EVERYONE home.

Adam and Greg enjoyed/endured a partner WOD. I enjoyed the picture!

I had my kitchen backsplash wallpapered. I adore it! Just wanted to share that!

Finley helped me make ornament garland...

She is in a craft overload mode

Hours and hours of fun

TAl and his daily greeting for Angie. #jealousmimi

Sue and I went to St. Louis...yes, the fabulous Fox Theatre to see Motown...fabulous!

She also works Angie's Piloxing class. Then...

She crashes.
