why I'm lacking content and a winner ...

Right now, the girls and I are halfway through our trip. And I've found it hard to find the time to write a post, because rather than staring at a computer we've been hanging out here ...

eating a lot of this (Ralph's Italian Ice - so yummy) ...

while catching up with family ...

But then, something that started out looking like this ...

sent us to the ER for the afternoon (spider bite - she's fine).

But, I've run. And played. And the girls are having a blast. Summer vacation is rocking their socks.

(And in case you were wondering, the drive here was fantastic. I swear someone sedated my kids before we left.)


And since we are having such a fabulous time, it's my turn to make someone's day by announcing the winner of the OnlineShoes.com Brooks Giveaway. There were 556 entries and thanks to random.org, the winner is ...
