I'm BACK!!!!

Hi, just popping in to say that I'm sorry I didn't get to post yesterday. We had been away, but I am BACK now! We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law in beautiful Charleston, SC. We had a FABULOUS time!! In just a few days, we managed to:

1) Go to a Charleston Riverdogs game. They won and I bought another Riverdogs t-shirt for my collection! AND THERE WERE FIREWORKS!!

2) Visit the South Carolina Aquarium. If you click that link, the slideshow of the 385,000 gallon salt water tank does not really do it justice to what it's like to stand in front of that HUGE, two-story tank.

3) Play 36 holes of "golf" at Frankie's Fun Park, and I took second place!! (Our son took first place and truthfully, our pregnant daughter-in-law was doing great until about hole 30, when she finally started to fade in the SC heat!

4) Go to beautiful Folly Beach:
It actually poured down rain for the entire time we were in the water, which was really a lot of fun! I'm not the type to enjoy frying in the sun, so I was thrilled!
5) And last, but definitely not least, go to the James Island Dog Park THREE TIMES - can't tell you how much fun it was to watch our German shepherd frolicking with his 'cousins' and leaping into the lake to fetch tennis balls. Strangely, while swimming with the tennis ball in his mouth, he held his ears sideways and looked disconcertingly like this:

Of course, since we have not seen our son and daughter-in-law since LAST THANKSGIVING, just being with them was the best part of all. Any parent can relate to that, I'm sure.

I have something cool to show you tomorrow and PLEASE make sure you check back, because I will be ANNOUNCING A GIVEAWAY!! WOOO HOOOO, and you won't even need to have a special baby in your life in order to like this one. Here's a sneak preview:

OH, and I am really excited about some new things I'll be working on in the next few weeks. I hope you'll like them! As usual, thanks for stopping by!
