Moses and Masey

Well, Talia and family were at our house for the past couple days, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. It's been so nice to have them around. Masey absolutely loved having Moses around. Jenna Lee has slowly gotten more used to us all, and even (gasp!) let me hold her. Having my Moses around has reminded me how much I adore that kid.

On Tuesday, Talia, Pene, Darl, and I went (with the kids) to Seven Peaks. We stayed for almost 8 hours, and by the end of the day were all sunburned. I got sunburned on the top of my knees, but there was literally a splash mark of white on my left knee where I apparently got some sunscreen on. It's not something I could duplicate, and I wish I had taken a picture of it, it was pretty funky. Everything else got a shade or two darker, and my hair got lighter.

I say that it was all worth it, and Bless the dear summertime!

I am not too happy about the sunburn, but I have to admit that I absolutely adore summer. It's by far my favorite season. I love the sunshine, I love the warmth. I love walking from an air-conditioned building/car, and just feeling so warm from the sun. I love the perfect nights. I love the breezes. I love the festivals, carnivals, and fairs. I love camping, I love dusk. I love looking up at the stars. I love seeing storm clouds roll in. I love the flowers, the smells, and I even love the dry, crispy grass.

I just LOVE summertime!

Well, a few weeks ago, I was talking with my mom and sister about how much I wish I had a cello, and want to save up some money to buy one and play again. Well, Cellos (at least the sort I want) are quite expensive, so it's a faraway dream for me. Violins on the other hand (especially because I don't need a professional one) are much more affordable. So, a few weeks ago, I bought a violin on Ebay, and now, I'm in the process of teaching myself to play. I'm still awful at it, but I dream of one day being able to fiddle with the best!
