Summer's good.

Blogger is giving me a hard time uploading images...darn!

We are having a great beginning of summer.

Yes, you guessed it...we went to the Los Angeles Zoo with Elaine from Matters of the Heart.

The kids had a fun time seeing all of the animals.

Elaine and I had a wonderful time hanging out and chatting the day away.

Cannot wait to post some pictures of the kids.

I have a SCARY steroid face and have begged Elaine not to post a picture of me.

She is gorgeous. (Elaine, just crop me out of the pix! LOL!)

The Princess has her dance recital tonight.

She is excited.

I think I will surprise her with a bouquet of flowers.

Scout is gone camping with the Boyscouts. He is learning to shoot a gun. *

*Those are words I would never have imagined writing...even a few months ago

Firehubby got a new Mac.

Yeah, he says he will never go back to a PC again.

He has been tinkering with it for days. Hours of fun.

Summer is great! I enjoy not having to be on a set schedule and being able to sleep in on my days off instead of getting up to make lunches!

Sweetie, don't worry about your face. Pregnancy has exploded on mine, mostly around my mouth. My face suddenly says: "Look at me, I'm over 30 and still battling acne!" Fabulous, huh? Third trimester will make up for it by giving me great skin, but a huge double chin. Not. Fair.

Plus it's hot and sticky in Minnesota, so I shower and clean up and five minutes after leaving my house, my hair looks frizzy and my face looks greasy because I'm sweating.

And I keep passing 20 year old size 2 blondes who look so fresh and summery. I'm a nice person, I swear! But the pregnancy hormones make me want to trip them.

I can't wait to see pictures of your trip. It sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't been to the L.A. zoo in years! But whenever I think of it, the theme song from Threes Company goes through my head...

Heather Marie said...

I LOVE summer too! I'm glad you guys had a great time at the zoo. Tell Princess good luck at her dance recital tonight!

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

I thought they were just fine.... I promise I won't share though. Can't wait to hear how Ms.Princess did tonight.

I loved when my girls danced...I lived for the recitals. Take pictures of her costumes. So pretty.
Can't wait to see the pictures from the Zoo.

April said...

We'll all be anticipating seeing your pictures, Julie! So glad you had a fun day!

I hope she does well at the recital tonight, I am sure she will love the flowers. I am a mac user and would never go back to a PC. I hope he has fun. :)

Good luck to the Princess as she dances.. I'm sure it will be ethereal. And, I feel absolutely sure that YOU are beautiful, steriod face or not; but sweet Elaine, will, of course, honor your wishes. Because that's just who she is! As for camp... heh. YOU send yours off. I have to go WITH mine. Leaving in the a.m. for four days and three nights at Bert Adams Boy Scout camp ... Webelos encampment. I took pics today of my boy in his Web uniform, which makes him look like a mini-Boy Scout. ouch. Growing up too fast. It makes my head hurt. Guns and knives? Not a problem. Growing up too fast? Now THAT'S a problem! *sigh*

Rachel said...

Loving all the comments too! Sounds like you've had a great start to summer :) Can't wait to see pictures of all your fun!

Mr. Daddy would be so proud of your scout!

Ann Basso cracked me UP with the remark about tripping the 20 yr. old size 2 blondes. Wait until menopause, Ann. Forget the'll want to trip EVERYBODY. ;-)

Both of my sons were boy scouts. Our oldest son became an Eagle Scout. They both learned to shoot guns. I guess it's a good thing to know the proper way to handle them, but I'm like you, Julie.

I hope you're able to print pics again, soon. I want to see some of the recital!

Our son, Bo, just got a Mac laptop for college. He loves it, too. My hubby works in the newspaper industry. They use ONLY Macs...have for years. He won't use anything else, either.

I hope the rest of your weekend is a great one!

Melissa said...

Oh please do share those pic's from the Zoo...can't wait! We aslo LOVE summer!

Helene said...

Sounds like you're having a great weekend so far!!!! I can totally see my sons wanting to shoot guns when they get older too. Is this what I have to look forward to? LOL

Morgan said...

I'm glad you guys had a good time! : )

renee said...

julie, i am right there with you with the "steroid face"'d think that with all the meds there are, they could find one that doesn't do that. it's not so good for the self confidence.
very cool that scout is learning to shoot. i love going target shooting!!!
hope princess' recital went well!!!
ps. way to go firehubby on coming over to our side. macs are the only way to go.

I miss the days of dance recitals!

And I can't think of a more fun time than hanging with Elaine!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I wish he lived close enough to help me with my new Mac...It has been in the box for 6 weeks now...UGH...

blueviolet said...

The zoo is one of my favorite places to go ever! I'm glad you had such a great time. :)

Aspiemom said...

Maybe those with Prednisone faces should have a contest. We can post our pics and see who is the most bloated! lol

Can't wait to see your pics. (I've had the same problem posting pics this week) Glad your summer has gotten off to a great start!
