Hieroglyphics Trail

So I was going through my camera to look at some pictures of our fun weekend, and I found this mysterious file on my memory card. One I hadn't noticed before, and upon opening it I discovered these fun pictures! Ok so this was in like July, around 6:00 of course since it's too hot much later, but we went on this fun hike with our friends and I had forgotten where I had put the pictures. So there is this trail that has ancient hieroglyphics on the rocks, and it's really cool. Crazy to think about people living trillions (trillions?) of years ago carving these into the wall.
Cute little girls
Allie and Logan climbed up a big mountain with their DaddysCool hieroglyphics all over the walls of this place.We thought about going for a swim but we forgot our swimsuits. Bummer.Ok so the kids looked ticked, but honestly I think we all had a great time.

Virginia is for Lovers

A couple of weeks ago I was able to take the girls to Virginia to go visit my sister, her husband, and their a-dor-able daughter Mayumi. I hadn't been out there to visit them since they'd moved to the DC area several years ago, so I was so glad to have the chance. We had a great time, Hil's got a great house they bought last year, and the only thing that would hav been better is if I could have stayed longer. My mom came out for a couple days of my trip, and I was able to see two of my favorite people ever, Carrie and Leslie. Hil showed me the sites of her town, Herndon, we hung out and played with the girls a lot, and went into DC one day, to act like tourists for a little while. Allie still talks about how much fun it was, especially the new friends that she met.

We had such a great time, thanks Hil, Nate, Yumi, Mom, Leslie, Carrie & Corey for making an effort to spend time with us on our trip. We love you!!!

Mexicans Dressed Up Like Old Ladies

Fear not bloggers, for I have returned! Yes, I know it has been two months. It's been a busy couple of months, and I won't bore you with all of the trivial details. The main thing that's been going on is after months and months and moooooonths of house hunting we finally found the perfect place, moved, and have been just trying to get fully settled. We are never moving again. I hate moving. Moving day itself is never that bad, maybe cause of all of the help we got from nice friends (THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!)and stuff, but its more the months after where random boxes full of random stuff still linger in corners of rooms and in closets. Today's task is organizing my den, which I've been putting off, and then next week I will tackle my craft room. "What?!?!" you are thinking to yourself... "Lindsay has a craft room? Wait, which Lindsay's blog am I reading?" Well it's true. Over the last little while I have tried to become more crafty, and have started to accumulate a considerable amount of stuff, so when we moved and had an extra room Danny put aside his dreams of having a "man" room and let me have it. What a guy! So anyway, stay tuned for further updates from the Stansfields. I am back.
