S is for Sunshine, Smiles and Stinky Feet

Well, almost a whole entire month has gone by and I have not blogged here.   It has been so pretty and green around here.  I have gotten my kids to go on a few hikes.  Kiki and Shanny are picking up trash on some hikes for their Personal Progress value projects.

Ty started scouting this summer and went to scout camp for his first time.  He survived, a little worse for the wear. Norm went up with him and they also did a service project up there as well.   Doing laundry after one of these scout camps is an aromatic event.    Ty’s feet are getting awfully smelly and I bought him some of those deodorizing sneaker balls.   They seem to be working.

Norm and I went on a mini-second honeymoon for our anniversary.  That was really great and I wish it could have been longer.  We are planning on doing this every year.  We probably won’t stay somewhere as posh as the Stanley next time but it will be something to look forward to.  I was always too worried to leave the kids when they were little.  Now I don’t worry AS MUCH.  The girls made us plate of cookies and cleaned the house for us. (  Highlight of that excursion was the moose we saw on the way home.) 

Nederland finally opened it’s Carousel of Happiness.   Even though my kids are a bit too old to ride,  we went and checked it out.  The animals were beautifully painted and  designed for little kids’ tushes. 

Rach needs some professional looking clothes for some of her accounting meetings so we have been trying to find some business -wear for her.  Any suggestions for a good store to go to?   We have been to Nordstroms, Ross, Marshalls,  Tj MAXX,  thrift stores.  Speaking of thrift stores…..I  was trying on a shirt on top of my shirt at a store and when I took off the shirt,  I accidentally took of BOTH shirts right there.  I did not even notice that I took off my own shirt.    Oops. Luckily, Kiki told me and I did not walk around in my bra.  I think that goes on the number one embarrasing moment of my life now. 

Fun Store:  The Pacific Ocean Marketplace.   Good  selection of rice and noodles, very entertaining.  Lots of curiosities.  I did not dare take a photo there.

I am out of practice of blogging and I am sorry that these photos are duplicates and in strange order.

      I couldn’t find a way to reply. Obviously, I finally found it.

      Had to laugh at your story about the blouse. Think what could have happened if Kiki hadn’t been there:)
