Empty Nester Weekend

27 Jul

We lost our kids this weekend. On purpose. Mom and Dad took all of them camping for a three-day weekend. We missed them, and it was nice for Jaimie and me to have some time to be with each other. We went out for dinner Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, took a long bike ride, slept in, took a little nap here and there, got some chores done around the house, watched a few movies, and just hung out. We only sat and stared at each other a little. It was really peaceful. We were really glad to see the munchkins this evening, even though Mesa was the only one that seemed happy to see us. Zoey figured they should go camping for another two weeks. Thanks for the break Mom and Dad. Now back to the roudy mayhem…

Here’s a pic of our first gladiola saying hello yesterday morning, and a couple shots from my hike this afternoon. I just uploaded a whole bunch of new pics to our flickr site too…

    Nope. We made it through the whole weekend without injury.

    No chiropractor this weekend….I guess my muscles have their flexibility back. :0)

    I could tell you the true story on how my back was injured, but I know you will never believe me. So, to you (Eric) and the entire Bartmann family, keeping thinking we were crazy and kinky, Joe seems to be smiling about it.
