until I get to go to S. Idaho!! My mom, sisters and I are going on a river-rafting trip, which is something I've always wanted to do. I grew up in S. Idaho, near some of the best river-rafting in the country, and I've never gone. We're going in part to celebrate mom's birthday...how many 76 yr. old women would go river rafing?? My mom is so cool.
And then, THEN, I'm heading over to Ketchum for a weekend of debauchery with the girls....our annual "Moms Gone Wild" weekend: no husbands/partners and NO KIDDOS!! We had to skip last year because Jennifer went and had another baby (so selfish!) so we've got some making up to do. There are sure to be outrageous stories...my favorite from our last trip is the image of Jen pole-dancing with the gigantic lodge-pole pine in the middle of the dance-floor of Whisky Jacque's! We sort tend to forget we're, um, grownups when we get together! Or maybe we're just in denial for one weekend a year. There is sure to be lots and lots of laughing, story-telling, shopping, eating, and probably a few Mojitos consumed. And wine. And Saki. And Tequila. We let it ALL hang out and we all come away refreshed and sore from laughter and counting the days until our next one. I can not wait.
Here are a couple of my new favotire photos. Look at those eyes! And that's Moby, the Second Best Dog in the World (right behind Smokey...but a very close second).
And I can't tell you how much I love to walk into a room and see Anna reading...It's the best thing ever.
