The Blog Neglect Continues

So, I'm still horribly neglecting my blog, and will probably continue to do so for a few more weeks. I know I haven't blogged about the first day of school yet, but that's because what pictures I did manage to get haven't been loaded onto my computer yet. "So do it now," you say - well the camera is downstairs and I am not about to go get it right now (I'm barely keeping my dinner down just sitting here). Actually this is the first time I've even been on the computer at all in about 3 days. "Why, Shari, why?" you ask. Well if you will look at the new addition to my sidebar you will see what has me a little out of sorts these days. So, sorry for my neglect, but it should only last a few more weeks.

A Week With Stokes

My parents came out to visit for a week. We had a great time and did lots of fun stuff that I don't have any pictures of (see the previous post). They took the kids shopping for school clothes, we went to Chuck E. Cheese's, there was lots of wrestling with Grandpa, and a whole lot more. The highlight of the week though was the day at Seven Peaks. The kids had a blast, and I actually got some pictures.

Mara's favorite part was the wave pool, Cruz liked the large waterslide in the kids area, and Kenyon's favorite part was when Grandma and Grandpa were pretending to be alligators and chasing him in the kid pool.

We all had a great time while they were here, and wished they could have stayed longer. What a fun week!

Blog Neglect & Camera-Block

Okay, I know I have seriously neglected my blog for the last few weeks. My apologies to all of you who have been waiting for my next post (Lisa). I will try to do better.

I am having some kind of serious memory block when it comes to my camera. I always have my camera with me for anything even the least bit picture-worthy. I never forget it when there is anything going on that I might want to document - until now. For about the last month or so I can't remember to take my camera with me ANYWHERE. I don't know what's wrong. I must have some kind of camera-block. I have been missing all kinds of important things. I am so frustrated with myself. The icing on the cake was this morning when I actually forgot to take my camera for Cruz's first day of school. UUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!! What kind of a mother forgets to get pictures of the first day of school?! Then later, when I told Karl what I did he said, "Why didn't you use the camera on your phone." AAHHH!!! Why didn't I think of that?! I need some serious help here. Maybe an intervention.
