Fall Gardens And Family Faces And MyHero Goes Flying

 I took a few days off from blogging
over the Labor Day weekend.
I was going to rest and enjoy 
some Green Bay gardens.
However, I was not idle.
We did a LOT of drinking.
And Olympic style swimming.
There was some really rough Wilderness Camping.
Then there was a Pregnant Pause.while we regrouped.
Pregnant Pause-she's pregnant-get it? Oh-Nevermind
We braved tough terrain
and the rough waters of the lake,
Lulu sprouted wings-hope they fall off before school today.
And there was some kite flying.
My Hero's job was to loft the kites in the air
so that others could fly them.
OH NO- If I've told him once 
I've told him 100 times!
When the kite goes UP 
LET GO OF IT.
Good-Bye, My Hero, Good-Bye
Let's hope he gets back in time to
Pick A Pumpkin
for Fall decorating.
Off to take pictures of the kids
going to school for the first time
this Fall Season.
I'll be visiting later today!

Cute post. And I noticed you started to tell us someone was pregnant and then you crossed it out. Do you have some news you'd like to share?
And I posted a giveaway Saturday. You need to scroll back and read about it because one of your girls might really be happy if you won!

Hi Diana, Enjoyable time spent with the family. What more could you ask for? Kite flying oh what fun. Your Hero looks like that is something that he really likes doing and does he build them to. We had a beautiful weekend after the storm went through, but it cooled it off. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
