Well, Mick and I have been spending a little R&R w/o the BEBZ this week. I has been really great to have a little adult conversation with my soulmate without the interruptions of the BEBZ. It has been really hot where we're at but we've been enjoying tooling around on the waverunner and splashing in the pool. We've watched a fair share of US Open Tennis (correction-I have) and several of good flicks on TBS. Last night after a dinner show with Mimi and Papa and the BEBZ (they were just here for a few hours) we went to the resort's Parrothead Party. It was pretty fun-outdoors-with lots of dancing, a bbq and several artisans with stuff for sale. One vendor was selling Guatemalan jewelry to raise money for some families that had been hit by the mudslides (last year already?). The band is said to be one of the opening acts for THE JIMMY BUFFET himself. More fun with a second night of parroting tonight. Oh, Ian made friends with a guy who had a parrot named Paco on his shoudler. Ian liked petting his tailfeathers. Ethan, on the verge of a meltdown-opted not to pet Paco but he did want a dance with his Momma. (Yeah me!). We met a fun and (wildly)interesting couple who sat down at our table while we were listening to the band. They were Brady Bunch Newlyweds of a year and she had just completed her 200th sky dive jump. And if completing 200 jumps wasn't enough of a celebration she told us she completed it in her birthday suit! Yep...you read it right-no typo here! I'll try to post pics of all of the events when we return home. (Of course-no pics of the nudist skyjumper!!:)LOL
Can't believe school has already started. We drove back home Wed. to be able to take the BEBZ to their first day of school. Ethan was too cute. Really excited to finally be going to Pre-K. He likes his teacher Mrs. T. Ian got homework for his first day-about bringing things in of his likes/dislikes.
Yesterday Mick and I went on a trail ride. My horse was named Trooper and he was.. well... quite the character. I was smooth talkin' him the whole way and could tell he was listening and soakin' in all of the love throughout the ride. Trooper and I were the last in a line of about eight. The trail was 90% shaded which proved slightly refreshing as it was about 104 degrees out. Mick's horse was named Sully.
There was a beautiful sheperd/lab mix there named Bleu. She reminded us of Lily. Same eyes and nose and black spots on her tongue too. Apparently labs can have black on their tongues-so maybe Lily doesn't have chow in her after all. (For those of you who don't know-Lily was the puppy I found last year at the edge of our property.)
ok...Mick wants me to get ready for round 2 of the Parrothead Partying so TTFN! :)
