Summer Catch Up..Part 2

Man, if only I could just "decide" to start eating better and excercise and be as succesful sticking to it as I have been "deciding" to stop neglecting my poor blog....oh well, anyhoo.
As I was saying in this post, there was a swirl of activity going on around the McManus household this summer....other than camping and swimming in our glorious blow up pool, we also had a few major milestones...some of them not so much. Let's start with the not so much...
Ok, this may not be a milestone for anyone else in my family but it sho' nuff was for me....a whole 4 days away in the beautiful mountains of Gatlinburg with these wonderful ladies God has placed in my life! I'm talking, no kids, no hubbies, private heated pool, hot tub, prayer time, watching movies in the middle of the day, and more food than Dolly Parton herself could serve at her famous Dixie Stampede! It was an amazing blessing and I am already looking forward to next year!

We also joined up with some fellow church goers and Homeschoolers and hit the Tennessee State Fair in Nashville! I'm still trying to figure out how I grew up here my whole life and never went to this glorious funnel cake filled event! And I'm quite certain that it's the only place on Earth that your nose can experience the aroma of Foot Long Corn Dogs and The Swine Barn all at once! Ooohh.. swine...just that word makes me cringe! I'm glad we did was VERY educational and from what I understand, unless someone intervenes, our Mayor has decided the Fairgrounds could be put to better use so it was the last year of the State Fair. :-(

Yep, that pumpkin is REAL!

Now moving along to the more "Milestone" news....

This guy...

And I am pretty sure I now need to add his mouth to our insurance!

Worth EVERY penny! :-)

And this little guy....

Turned "7" :-)

Where does the time go???? Seriously.
