Blogging Sabbatical

Hi everyone.
Wow I am late getting this post out today.
Kind of.

We went camping last night. So fun.
I decided that Utah is the perfect place for camping.
Gorgeous, everywhere you look.
We got to take the bike trail to Bridal Veil Falls.
Come and join us any time.
But please don't expect us to ice climb.

Then I came home and cleaned out the garage.
And have been doing the after camping duties.
Laundry x6.
Cooler cleaning.
Car excavating.

Then I remembered that it was Kids' Day
at our local Grocery Store, Macey's.
We ran over for the last hour.
Hot dog, chips and a soda for 25 cents.
Free popcorn, ice-cream, and bounce houses.
25 cent cotton candy.
Yum yum.
To think we almost missed out.
I love Macey's extra large flag.
It makes me want to shop no where else.
I will be showing you more photos real soon.
I can't get enough of the blue skies, mountain ranges, and flying red white and blues.

At 3:00, I was in total awe at how much we had accomplished today.
We had also snuck in Bella's baseball game and team pictures.
And don't forget that we broke camp this morning.

Anyhow, I've been busy. And taking lots of pictures for future posts.
And I wanted you all to know that I haven't been slacking.
Have you seen all the new changes on the blog?
I am liking them very much.
Notice the box at the top left. It shows my Top 5 Commenters.
It looks like Sheila and Holly are going to have to duke it out for that write up next month.
I can't wait to see who pulls it off.

And I can't wait to tell you about my new game to play next month.
I am using this creative brain of mine to try and come up with fun that you can experience no where else.
Funny needs to be fun too.

I also am featuring my very first ad from Deseret Book. Wahoo.

If you haven't taken the time yet to like me on facebook, or become a google follower, please do take a minute. It will help me out a lot. And I will love you forever regardless.

Also, check out my new community on blogfrog. I am excited to make it grow. I have joined other blogging communities at blogfrog and it has introduced me to other bloggers I would have never met otherwise. I think blogfrog is great. You can also access my community through the tab up top. Pretty snazzy.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

The camping was fun. I'm glad that we were able to stay overnight and have breakfast. Then I helped with the Cedar Hills parade. It turned out good. I was so exhausted when I got home, but it has been a good day.

What a fam to get so much done in a day... and by 3pm! You rock, Alice!

SOOOO glad you are enjoying Utah. It really is a WONDERFUL place to be!

Holly said...

Wow. You really are turning your blog into a very marketable (as well as funny) site. I'm impressed. (your ability to do so many things in a day is also impressive. . .) Wanna come do some laundry at my house? I'll make you dinner that is better than hotdogs and cotton candy. I promise. :)

I have to agree with ya that Utah is great for bugs, no dew, no can sleep under the stars and not fear that you'll have ticks hidden in every crevice, or spiders crawling all over, or snakes slithering in the sleeping bag. The mosquitos and gnats are sparse, it cools off at night, the stars never seem so amazing! I could go on and on about Utah vs. Tennessee camping....oh and I love your blog...just so you know! ;)
