vay-kay-shun = fab-u-less!

We went on a little vacation this week.

We went with my Mama and my Papa!

My super sister Betsy and her family!brooke june 2010 012

And my Super brother Johnny and his family!

We had so much fun it was ridiculous.

If I was a cool blogger I would put some pictures of our vacation up.

I am not cool!

I am tired : )laundry 5

So I am just going to put some leftover pictures up I never shared!

And hope you can wait until Monday

to see some of the sites we visited.

I know it will kill you to wait : )

Or not!

I missed you.

Gary keeps saying he is going to put me into rehab for bloggers.

I promised him I would not blog while I was gone.brooke june 2010 041

And I did so good.

I didn’t take my computer.

I only visited one site (via the hotel computer)

it was the lovely Miz Booshay’s blog at Quiet Life.brooke june 2010 014

I love her blog.

I love her pictures.

Here is to a happy weekend for one and all!   brooke june 2010 038photo story friday   An ardent traveler named Joan spent most of her vacation sunbathing on the roof of her hotel.

She wore a swimsuit the first day, but on the second, she decided that no one could see her way up there, and she slipped out of it for an overall tan. She'd hardly started when she heard someone running up the stairs; Joan was lying on her stomach, so she just pulled a towel over her rear.
"Excuse me, miss," said the flustered hotel manager, out of breath from dashing up the stairs. "The hotel doesn't mind you sunbathing on the roof but we would very much appreciate you wearing a bathing suit as you did yesterday."
"What difference does it make," Joan asked rather calmly. "No one can see me up here, and besides, I'm covered with a towel."
"Not exactly," said the manager.

"You're lying on the dining room skylight."

This joke was found here.

Don’t worry. laundry 1

This did NOT happen to any of us on vacation!

That sure would have been a good blog post though!

Mighty M said...

The baby in the laundry basket is soooo cute! Great job restraining from blogging this week - I think if you can restrain yourself that long it is surely a sign that you DON'T need rehab. Not yet, anyways. ;)

Jennifer O. said...

Her pigtails are too darn cute!

jlo said...

Make sure you post about your vacation when you get a chnace!

gretchen said...

That is a great joke! I hope that Gary got to come with you on your vacation. Family vacations are the best!

I keep showing my husband these gorgeous baby pictures but he keeps saying no more babies.

Elaine A. said...

Your pics are always so fun and stunning. Love the baby in the laundry basket!!!

MarshaMarshaMarsha said...

bahaha! is it sad that i know that i cannot even tell a joke in blog format? and don't even think about asking me to tell you something funny in person. i am a bad storyteller. and yet i blog. go figure.

proud of you for leaving your computer at home! it is good to unplug sometimes. puts things in proper perspective.

scrappysue said...

all i can think about is squished boobs on the skylight! hilarious! - and those beautiful green eyes!

Matty said...

I think many of us could qualify for blogging rehab.

Those kids sure are cutie pies.

Hope you had a great time away. Vacations always have a way of going too fast.

Tracey Axnick said...

GORGEOUS photos... you are so talented with that lens, my dear!

Britney said...

Wow! Thank you so, SO much for your comment on my post! It was so encouraging :D (looks like a fun vacation, love the laundry pics, we dry our clothes on a clothes line too)

He & Me + 3 said...

You were stronger than I ever could be on vacation. Good for you.
Great pictures...as usual.

Anita Johnson said...

Welcome back! Great pictures as usual. I'll admit it, I missed the computer while I was gone this week. And I missed my morning coffee with my blog friends. I'm way too tired to look at my own photos tonight...but it feels good to be home and connected again. I'm looking forward to more of your vacation photos too.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

That baby is so beautiful!

Shell in your Pocket said...

Those are some great and fun pictures!!!

I love those sweet ole babies-so cute.

p.s. get some rest-

Unknown Mami said...

I like leftovers. I can't not blog even when I'm on vacation. I've got it bad. My husband would gladly put me in rehab with you.

Sarah said...

OK. My feelings are officially hurt. MY blog wasn't the one and only blogged you checked while on vacation?!?! Just kidding :) Glad you had a wonderful vacation with your family!!

Mrs4444 said...

Oh, that's a good one :)

LOVE the baby in the basket pic.

Funny though, the thing I loved about the first shot was the hand on her chest. Loved it.

Good girl on the not blogging thing :) Now you can tell yourself you're not really hooked, haha

Liz said...

Great pictures! I loved that joke...too funny!

I hope you had a great time on vacation! We aren't taking our computer on vacation either. Bryan and I need some together time without the interuptions of email, blogging, facebook, etc.

Krystyn said...

I just want to squeeze those babies. In a healthy, loving way, of course!

Gerri said...

She is adorable. ;)

Southern Gal said...

Vacations ARE fabulous! Your baby is precious. I wish I had a great camera to catch my granddaughter as she grows. Maybe soon...

Hilary said...

I love those clothesline blues!
