Poor blog

I have once again been neglecting my blog. I always have the intention of updating it,but something always comes up. I really need to start working on changing that. I’ve seen that Hummie  has made the commitment to blog everyday. I need to take a page from her book!

To say that the summer has been busy would be a HUGE understatement. It has been CRAZY busy! I took a trip with my sisters to The Georgia/Florida border late last month to see our dad. Here’s a pic of the three of us at the ocean:

It was actually my very first time at the ocean! It was so much fun—even though we were there only 5 minutes. Here’s a few pictures of my experience at the ocean:

IMG_7161 IMG_7155 IMG_7156 It really was a neat experience. I don’t think I will ever forget the sound of the crashing waves. In fact, I have a sound machine on my phone, and I purchased the beach theme, just so I could hear the sound of the ocean. I would certainly love to visit there again, and this time—actually swim in it! That to me would be amazing!

I just came back from a weekend trip to Logan, Ohio, where our church’s young adults group went to Hocking Hills, which is a state park. This is a yearly tradition, however this is the first time we actually stayed at a cabin. A couple from our church recently purchased this cabin, and generously allowed the 18 of us invade it for a weekend. I was unable to do the hikes, so I stayed at the cabin. Take a look at the accommodations:

My friend Annette and I stayed in the upstairs bedroom with John (one of the leaders)’s sister Lynne, who lives closer to the West Virginia border. She came to spend the weekend with us. She actually stayed at the cabin with me while everyone else hiked.

  Annette loves the cold. She could keep her room at 65 and be happy year round. So—our room was the coldest in the cabin. Because of that, the three of us and our room became known as the Polar Bear club. Here we are, saying goodbye to Lynne. You may notice my shirt is on backwards. I had a… um…. blind moment. LOL polar bear club

  I guess I’ve caught you up a little bit on what’s been going on with me. I haven’t gone into my medical stuff, but I’m sure there will be another blog post for that. I know that I say this pretty much everytime, but I really am going to make more of an effort with this. Bear with me!

Till next time….

I like the rounded corners on your photos in the blog post. You must be using png's. I would never survive in a Polar Bear Club without an electric blanket.
