I feel like its been forever since I have posted last. I guess that's because I have been a traveling fool the last few weeks. Back on July 9th, dear Hubby and I took a road trip back home to Northern Wisconsin to see my family. We left around 3:00am so didn't get much for pictures until we hit the Wisconsin border. It turned soooo foggy that you could hardly see a 1/4 mi up the road.
The fog did make for some pretty sunrise pictures though . . .
We finally got to Mom and Dad's place around 1:00pm and found Mom on the lawn mower. Sam pulled in a little while later and kicked Mom off the lawn mower long enough to write his name in the yard. The picture didn't turn out the best but if you look close you can see the "AM"
He was pretty proud of his work . . .
Sam's girlfriend Ashley showed up after she got off of work to come visit Don and I and to let us know how much she has missed us.
We had a family fun day at the lake with lots of games played and stories told, swimming and cooking out. I believe the final head count was somewhere around 67 people that showed up which is just a fraction of the family. I would post the pics from the lake but Mom already uploaded my pics and posted them on her blog.
Like every vacation it's never long enough and the time flies by too fast. But it was so nice getting home and sleeping in my own bed again. But I sure wasn't expecting the weather to change so much along the way south. When we left WI it was a comfortable 76, by time we got down around the Chicago area it had heated up drastically around 97 and some heavy rain which lasted about 15 min. The next few days we had 98, 99, and 97. It was so hot out that you didn't even hear the birds chirping during the day.
One thing I was thankful for was that my lilies waited until I got home before they opened up. I was unsure on what kind they were so I didn't want to miss the blooms.
I did notice today that I have a couple yellow roses on my rose bush but I haven't taken any pics yet. Maybe tomorrow . . .
Until next time . . .
