Long Time, No Blog...

I've been so busy lately thoroughly enjoying my family! Matt is right in the middle of a set of six days off and we are truly taking advantage of the family time. We had some friends over for a bar-b-que on the 4th and it was great fun. The kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed each other's company, we must do it more often! We've been having picnics and park trips and we toured the YMCA in Baxter Village today to consider becoming a member. I could care less about the gym part but the water park is super fun and they have raquetball which Matt and I could do together. They have Childwatch for free too, so mommy time!!! The downside is that it's $71/month and we already pay monthly for Gymboree... decisions, decisions...

We've also been in high Wisconsin prep mode, making lists and whatnot. We both tried on our wetsuits, surprisingly they still fit! I was shocked I could squeeze into mine, it's a Juniors size 12 and I bought it 5 years ago, pre Ari and happy marriage wieght gain. It's fairly comfortable, as comfortable as a wetsuit can be. We dug out the swim fins and snorkel gear and bought extra luggage since this is the first trip both flying and with Ari. Every other year we've driven since we had Matt's dirtbike, we took the truck. This year, no dirtbike and it's an 18 hour drive from here, no thank you. I'm super excited, just 6 more days and we'll be on our way!

I have tons of pictures to share, Crop Addict layouts, 4th photos and various cute and silly pics of the kid but I think I'm going to call it a night. We're going to the pool in the morning and then heading to the park for a picnic and some fun. We have lots to do this week but I'll try to be regular with my blog updates until we leave. Once we're in Wisconsin I will be 100% out of touch, no cell phone signals and no TV which means no cable and no internet! It sounds rough but it's quite nice, just a stack of books and games for the evenings if we're still awake from the fun days of boating, swimming, atv-ing and golf! Yay...

Ive been busy too, sorry ive been out of touch ! My cutie Michael has to have surgery on the testes ! YIKES, you heard me right , through in the autism and that aint no party ! I go see the specialist/surgeon tomorrow.
Yet more we have in common, my DH is buying a wet suit as we speak, he just finished a scuba diving course, though not me ! LOL .... i will email you tomorrow after i get back from the doc, hes closer to where Laura lives so i will be gone alot of the day .
The YMCA sounds like fun, not a bad price, but i know what you mean about monthly payments adding up, they sound cheap alone until you combine them ! I just realized my dental payments are more noticeable than i thought they would be !
Ok, im babbling, talk to you real soon ! DH drove to Wisconsin back in November with a friend, they liked it alot there.
Hugs,
Me
