Vacation Sneak Peek

…And we’re back! As many of you guessed, we went away on vacation last week. It was fabulous (and frugal, of course). Right now I’m busy preparing for tomorrow’s 10! show, so here are some quick highlights from our trip to beautiful Montebello, Virginia with further details to follow soon.Β 

Thank you for all the wonderful comments this week. It’s great to be back!

  4. Welcome back! It looks like you had a fabulous time – happy birthday to Clara! I love the photo of Emily on the horse, she looks like she's loving every second!

  5. Actually, I should probably say pony? I clearly don't know much about horses…

    The mid-air jump shot is wonderful too.

  8. @ Heather — It was so nice to get away, but I'm glad to be back. I missed blogging!!

    @ Ivy — Thanks, I'm looking forward to getting caught up to what everyone has been up to lately. πŸ™‚

  9. @ MaryAnne — I can't believe my baby is one year old already! She took her first steps on her birthday… so exciting! Yes, it is a pony, and it was her first ever pony ride… she loved it!

  10. @ Ally — Emily was loving the M&Ms too, but I had to be sure to give Clara a M&M-free piece of cake. I think she enjoyed making a big mess with it, and eating some too. πŸ™‚
