Day One: Success

Day one of vacation was spent on Lake Bartlett Dam. A fun time was had by all. It was a little surreal tooling around on the lake with the mountains stretching above us. Josh was the only one who got in the water, but I think he had fun doing it. The rest of us enjoyed the shade of the pontoon boat. Pictures to follow later. The day on the lake was followed by Tom's for dinner and a trip to Walmart for dessert. Where I found the best thing since finding out there is Chick-fil-a in Arizona: Blue Bell ice cream. Everyone else got a personal serving size of Ben and Jerry's and I got a half gallon of mint chocolate chip. Blue Bell...how I have missed you! :) THEN (emphasis added for someone's entertainment and approval) it was on to watching NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles with Dad and Josh while the girls (minus me of course) watched The Biggest Loser. Watching NCIS without Emily was just not the same, but we did send a few texts back and forth because we were watching it at the same time!

Tomorrow starts the craziness of the next few days. Amy shared their work schedule with me this morning and it involves a lot of here, there, and everywhere. But, life as they usually know it is what I wanted for this vacation, so I say: Bring it on.

And I'll let you in on a little secret...I think Daynah, Josh, and I are going to take a road trip to the Grand Canyon on Friday. That makes me pretty excited because I didn't think I was going to get to do that this trip. Daynah and Josh don't really care what we do as long as they get to get out of school to do it! :)

And a late night last night + an early morning this morning + a day spent in the sun = me VERY tired!

Sounds like a great time! :)Can't wait to see the pics!

PS I admit I am secretly thrilled over the switch to "then". I never wanted to sound rude by saying something but that has bothered me for the longest time. xoxo!!

Glad I won't be stuck watching NCIS all by myself next week! I think we can even watch it at 7:00!
