Reader's Digest Condensed Version Of The Trip! (Sorry It Took So Long!)

There's no excuse for this having taken so long (actually, plenty of excuses, but I'll spare you). And the only way this'll ever get posted is if I give you the Reader's Digest Condensed version of our trip to Savannah. So here it is:

Liz and Timpani came to my house to get me (yay!) and they spent the night:

Then we left the next morning:

Then we broke down a block away from my house. :(

Then we left for real! :

We drove through Atlanta:

We slept:

Except for Timpani, who drove:

We got to Savannah!

We made it to our room!

We had dinner:

We tried on clothes at the mall:

This dress was $120.

We found this button in the hallway of the hotel, but were too scared to try it out:

We went to bed.

We went to the beach:

Liz found a crab:

Timpani got "rescued" by some good-lookin' lifeguards (but we forgot to take pictures?!)

We made a sand castle.

They buried me, but I refuse to post pics of it.

We found lots of seashells!

We got sunburned.

We left the beach, and saw a police escort. It was a movie crew filming the next Hannah Montana movie! (Wish I had a pic of that too, but it went by so fast, we didn't know what we were looking at.)

We came back to the room and got all dressed up to go out on the town:

We went out on the town, where Liz got hit on all night by: Diego (our waiters' buddy) and two guys off the street, and a couple of girls told us we were looking sexy that night.

We went to bed.

We got up, and bought food at the Piggly Wiggly to take to the beach:

We went into some little gift shops and then back to the beach:

We had to come home.

I saw a digital billboard in Atlanta displaying the Blue Screen of Death! Too bad I didn't get a picture of it.

We made it home (tanned and rested?):

They went to church with me. :)

They left me. :(

They got a flat tire on the way home when they hit a metal hubcap. Some nice man changed the tire for them.

They got home safely.

Overall, we had a blast, and can't wait to do it again next year!

Launa's Dream

Launa told me that she had a dream that Daniel was "kidnaptured" by pirates. He didn't have ninja skills, so they tied him up, surrounded him by fire, and his dog came and rescued him. Then the dog took a cannon and fired a connonball into the pirate's mouth.

Awesome Weekend!

Don't have the "umph!" to give all the details, but check out this shell I found buried in the sand at the beach! Yay me!

The Agony Of Being Gorgeous

We were walking around a store over the weekend, and I had Launa with me. There was a little boy who must have been about 2 years old, that saw Launa and held his arms out to give her a hug. Well Launa walked away from him and he followed her around and around and around trying to hug her. Finally I made her hug this strange boy because he was so darn cute, and I felt a little bad about Launa rejecting him like that. She didn't want to hug him tho. I probably shouldn't make her hug strange boys, I'm only asking for problems down the road, but I didn't know what else to do! We'll have to come up with a game plan, because especially with Launa, we are getting increased invitations by people who think she is adorable. There's already a boy at church (who's several years older than her) that thinks she is the most adorable little girl he has ever seen, so I'm keeping an eye on him. But I guess that's the price of tremendous beauty. I'll just have to be especially diligent. All you other parents of incredibly gorgeous girls (I think that's everyone that reads this blog), have any of you had experiences like this, and what do you do?

Best Article I've Ever Read

Okay, you guys probably saw it too on your news feeds today, but it cracked me up, so I had to do a post about it. If you click on this link, it will take you to a story about a 13-year-old that was given a Walk-Man cassette tape player by his dad who told him that it was their equivalent of an iPod when he was a teenager and then asked him what he thought of it. I think it's a cool experiment, and the results will have you rolling!
