The V Dub's Were in the House!



Well, again, I have had quite a long silence! Levi and Jaclyn came to visit last week and stayed a couple of days longer than they intended. We had a wonderful time shopping, sight seeing, watching movies, and hanging out. Bob got to spent some quality "man time" with Levi at the shooting range and I spent some "lets go shopping!" time with Jaclyn.

I learned to knit! I am so excited! I am about a quarter of the way done with a poncho that I started on years ago (literally, I've had the yarn and instructions since before we moved from MI!) for Jozie for Christmas. Hopefully it will be done in time for this year! :) Jaclyn is the best teacher! Thanks Mrs. V! She also taught Jozie and Luke but they found other things more interesting (like pestering Uncle Levi) and abandoned them indefinately...maybe next winter when we are spending a lot of time indoors they will pick it back up again! :)

I got Jaclyn started on her first scrapbook. She is going to scrap her summer vacation because she is going to be doing a lot of traveling. I took her to hobby lobby and got her hooked up with a cute little book and also some stickers. Then I brought her back home and let her go through my tote of papers and stuff. She didn't take near enough! LOL

We visited the Indiana Dunes for the first time since we've lived here only to do it on the day that the beach was closed because of lightening! We sat on the beach in the swealtering heat waiting for the beach to reopen but ended up leaving the beautiful sun and sand for the cooler climate of the central air at home! Maybe next time we will actually be able to get in the water...

Jaclyn started her own blog while sitting at the dining room table here at the house! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! Have fun! :)

Well, y'all don't know it, but the beach was closed because of the out-of-town white bellies....the lightning was not from a storm, my friends...it was the sun bouncing off our bellies!! Miss you guys!
