Thursday, August 19


Hello again! I've missed you all. How is your summer going? Or should I say, how was it? We're back in Lux after a wonderful, full, 2 weeks in Seattle. Actually we've been here for over a week now. Just slowly going through all the stages of jet-lag - must sleep NOW, fuzzy fog, I'm fine . . . until 3:00, okay, now I'm really over it . . .why am I so damn tired? We find the jet-lag much worse going east. I'm sure the huge let down of leaving loved ones factors into it.

Here are a few of the highlights from our trip:
Pine Cone Drive-in
::The annual Pine Cone Drive-in!! Are you wondering what the features were this year? I know you are. That Darn Cat, Jurassic Park, and Breaking Away. Of course there were classic cartoons for the kids before the main feature. Bugs Bunny this year. He's hilarious.
Treasure Chest
:: In addition to the Drive-in, my in-laws organized a treasure hunt on the walking trail they built around their property. It was truly the kids' best day EVER!
:: My baby turned 4. Sob. Sob. Sob. Just kidding (sort of.) We celebrated my niece's 5th birthday too.
::My girls met their newest cousin!! He. is. so. sweet.
Grandma's Garden
::A family get together at my mom's. Love the Canadian relatives. They're great peeps!
::Picnic in the park with friends!
::Saying a formal goodbye to my Grandmother, complete with yellow roses and pecan tarts.

::Spending time with Emily, Jeff and Linc, Wednesday night dinner at Tara & Wendy's, Dinner with the girls, shopping with Lori, Denny's lunch, steak dinner with Erik & Lena, visiting with neighbors, petting Gus, dinner with J,B,D,K & kids, serious shopping, Target binge with Lena, pool party at G.G. Lucy's, and much more that I'm sure I'll remember tomorrow.

Yaaaaawn. I'm off to bed. It's great to be back.

Looks like you had a wonderful time! Now the mystery of where of you went is over.

Jet-lag is _always_ worse going east. I remember a trip to Australia where it took me over two weeks to get back into some kind of normal sleep pattern again. It didn't help that we arrived late at night and I was so wired from meeting friends right at the airport that I couldn't sleep until 5 am.

Going "home" is the best thing, isn't it? And then you get to come back home and it's kind of strange to be saying that, too ;-)

(I used to say "home home" and "home" for Germany and Australia. It's hard to have two places you feel at home because there's always something you miss, but )

Glad to have you back! Can't wait to see the sunny day activities :)

I want to go to the Pine Cone Drive-In and that gorgeous, colorful garden, too. Glad you had a great time and welcome back "home"!
