Well, hello! Long time no see!

Warning – Picture Alert!!

I had not realized how long it was since I posted to my poor little blog.  Summer has been busy busy busy!!!  And I really need to get back to so many things – scrapbooking and cross stitching for just a couple.  I think that might just happen this fall.  Both boys will be in school and my free time with expand by leaps and bounds. I will miss them I know.  But at the same time, it is going to be good.

We took a short trip to Red River, NM this last week.  Left on Wednesday with the boys and our dog.  Then Kathleen and Mike came up with their two dogs.  It was an interesting trip.  And really nice and cool.  Rained a couple of times on us.  But we still managed to have some campfires and ate S’mores – of course!

First we had to go to Medipark Lake to practice fishing.  Zachary caught a catfish, that escaped – WHEW! – and Zane caught something that slipped off the hook.  Probably a perch.08-01-11 fishing Medipark 0108-01-11 fishing Medipark 0408-01-11 fishing Medipark 0508-01-11 fishing Medipark 1608-01-11 fishing Medipark 23 Heading out..08-03-11 Red River trip 04 08-03-11 Red River trip 06 08-03-11 Red River trip 09 Columbine camp area.08-03-11 Red River trip 16 08-03-11 Red River trip 21  We went fishing one morning.08-04-11 Red River trip 0408-04-11 Red River trip 06 After seeing the man across the lake pulling one fish after another in, Zachary went across and asked what he was using.  Marshmallows and worms.08-04-11 Red River trip 09 Went back and played and ate.08-04-11 Red River trip 13 And watched the hummingbirds.08-04-11 Red River trip 25 08-04-11 Red River trip 31Then took the boys back after buying some worms and grabbing some marshmallows.08-04-11 Red River trip 37Still no luck.08-04-11 Red River trip 38 Found out Buddy loved getting in the water and chasing stuff downstream. 08-05-11 Red River trip 21 08-05-11 Red River trip 22 08-05-11 Red River trip 24 Walking through the stream.08-05-11 Red River trip 25 08-05-11 Red River trip 31 More hummingbirds…08-05-11 Red River trip 39 08-05-11 Red River trip 40 And a chipmunk who wanted the dog food.08-06-11 Red River trip 02 And a butterfly sharing the water.08-06-11 Red River trip 04 And finally Dad helped them catch fish!!!  Oh, they caught them but something about Mom and Dad being here helped.  08-06-11 Red River trip 15 The boys played with the little gel pellet guns and had a blast for three hours!08-07-11 Red River trip 01 08-07-11 Red River trip 05 08-07-11 Red River trip 08 08-07-11 Red River trip 12 Campfires with S’mores – and a little hamming it up!08-07-11 Red River trip 17 08-07-11 Red River trip 19 Our camper set up.08-07-11 Red River trip 20 Playing a game.08-08-11 Red River trip 01 08-08-11 Red River trip 03 Just some views around us.08-08-11 Red River trip 11 08-08-11 Red River trip 13 08-08-11 Red River trip 2408-08-11 Red River trip 27And finally the trip home.  We hit some storms and it really made the trip home interesting and pretty.  A deer jumped in front of us as we neared home but she sailed out of the way.  Whew!08-09-11 Red River trip 01 08-09-11 Red River trip 02 08-09-11 Red River trip 04 08-09-11 Red River trip 05 08-09-11 Red River trip 06 08-09-11 Red River trip 08 08-09-11 Red River trip 11 08-09-11 Red River trip 13And, BAM!, we were home and back to the heat.  Sigh.  Come on fall.
