I spent the weekend in 2004. My twins were 10, then 11. My baby boy was 5, almost 6. My baby girl was picking her nose or biting a finger while she waited to turn 2.
No, it wasn’t time travel. I spent the weekend scrapbooking pictures from four years ago. I attended the same retreat at Mt. Baker last year, too, and amazingly enough, the rain stopped and the clouds parted to reveal blue skies just in time for our arrival. I will have pictures to post just as soon as I unpack my camera doo-dads. But suffice to say, I had a great time going away for the weekends with friends and working on my neglected project.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, my husband held down the fort. He took our daughter with him to our 10-year old’s football game Saturday morning. Today, he took them to an indoor play area, complete with laser tag, miniature golf and arcade. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, he rounded up all four kids and took them to the Pumpkin Patch where apparently it’s now possible to launch corn.
The best part? He took pictures with his iPhone. I will be scrapbooking those photos in 2012, at this rate.
Speaking of the world ending . . . I paid $2.99 a gallon for gasoline today! Who’d have guessed that this would seem like a bargain?
