2 days 2 VACATION!!
Wednesday, August 04, 2010
That's right I'm going on vacation!! We haven't gone on an actually vacation since we went to Texas last summer to see my husband before he left for Kuwait. So it will be nice to get to go as a family and also as a couple. We are first going to his hometown to see his brother, who is there for the All-School Reunion, participate in the demolition derby. Than we will do a couple days of sight-seeing with the kids in the Black Hills, before Grandma takes them home. Than the DH and I are going to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. We used to go every year, that is before kids, and it's been 2 years since we have been so we are excited about going. Plus we will get to take the new Harley out and NO Kids. We will be spending 2 nights in Sturgis and than heading home so I can get to my Sports Kick-off Meeting on Thursday. So we will be gone from Friday to Wednesday.
I'm really excited, but I'm not looking forward to everything I'll have to get done when I get home. VB practices starts the 16th and school on the 23rd, so this is really the last hooray before school starts and summer is over.
I got in plenty of cardio today, 45 minutes on the elliptical, 200 crunches, and than I mowed the lawn for an hour, before we got the rider to pick up all the clippings. It looked like I was getting ready to bail hay in my front yard.
All in all it was a great day and I made the kids happy with ice cream floats for dessert tonight. None for me, but watching them enjoy them was good enough.
Have a Terrific Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
