    Before I Forget

    This was also a bittersweet Memorial Day. Normally I spend the afternoon at the cemetery for the Veterans tribute, and then meet up for lunch at Julie's house. I wasn't there last year, and it didn't really faze me.

    This year I would have had a better reason to visit. Here are some shots of the headstone that I totally jacked from my sisters blog. Thanks, Jill.

    The headstone is granite, and it was carved in Belgium. My mom would be pissed that it's so big. Not her style at all. But that temple engraving is so gorgeous, she would forget all about the size issue.

    I love how it says "Pokey". She would get such a laugh over that. I wish I could hear her laugh just one more time. And her smile was always so sincere. She deserves the beauty of this headstone, and so much more.

    I miss you, mom. I love you.


    Happy Campers

    So we went camping this last weekend. And by "we" I mean 6 adults and 6 kids, all crammed into our trailer. Headed up to Wisconsin, near Madison. It was beautiful.

    'Cept we stayed at the ghettoest trailer park

    They had a golf cart parade. Which would be awesome, had we been staying anywhere near a golf course. But the people driving these carts were toothless and drunk, and pretty belligerent, even for toothless rednecks.

    People smoked in the pool.

    And little kids had mullets.

    Luckily we didn't spend a whole lotta time around them, we mostly kept to ourselves.

    Boys biked, girls chatted, kids played, I kayaked, and we ate yummy food and too many crap snack foods.

    I need some Activia.

    I took a total of 0 pictures.

    Kelley has some on her blog, but it's private, so just imagine me looking like my hot self sitting in a trailer park.


    It was nice. I love the trailer. The kids had a blast, and I think the adults had a good enough time, too. Kelley is due to birth any day now, so she's not invited to our next adventure, down to Nauvoo. I'm sure it will be a great time, as well!
