We're back! Our big graduation trip that we've been planning for four years is over. We did a seven night cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. We hit Aruba, Bonaire, Grenada, Dominica and St. Thomas. A different beach for every day. It was perfect. I'm not sure it could have gone any better. I'm so glad we did it! And I'm so sad it's over!
I have some big ideas for how I want to blog about it. I hope it won't take me forever to get around to actually getting it done.
Ash and Mel and I are going to exchange pictures this weekend at graduation. They take the kind of marvelous pictures that I only dream about taking, so I'll wait to see what they've got before I commit to any posts.
In the meantime, I thought I'd tell you about our first family excursion since we got back from our cruise. Bobby, Louise (Bobby's mom), and I took the girls to the circus tonight. It comes to K-ville every year and we've only been once before. (Franny and I went with Jill and Alyssa and Brenda and Ellie. Holla!) Admission is kind of pricey for such a small-scale circus. But we had a good time and I thought the girls would love it so we thought, why not?
Well, this year I was a little more impressed because they had lions and tigers. In my opinion, a circus is not a circus without lions and tigers. Franny and Sophie even got to have an elephant ride again. I wanted some pictures, of course, so I ran around the arena like a spaz, bumping into other parents on stepping on the feet of small children just so I could snap a shot of my kids on their $10 elephant ride. Here's one of my best.
Awesome. I had it on the macro setting because I'm a freaking idiot.
It didn't get much better after that.
My favorite is the picture of the elephant's rear end.
Oh yeah, and in case you didn't know, I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy. Check this out:
