Well, I’m finally back home from my extended stay down at Club Ponderosa. I had a great time while I was there. The 4th of July weekend was a good time: seeing my cousins and their sweet little babies, swimming in the pool, hanging out with the extended Torto family, and of course watching Shawn in all of his pyrotechnic glory.
I took Mom and Dad to the airport EARLY on Tuesday morning to catch their flight to Hawaii, then spent the week hanging out at the house with Roz and Luke watching movies and more swimming. I also got a good chunk of knitting done. So relaxing! Shawn drove back down on Friday afternoon and we went to Pepe’s that night. They have amazing Mexican food and the margaritas are only second to the ones that Dad makes at home. Saturday, the four of us went to Raging Waves Water Park for the day. So much fun!! I haven’t been to a water park since I don’t know when, so it was a great time. We rode everything and laughed a ton. I would totally do it again. We came home and realized we locked ourselves out of the house, so I had to get on the roof and break in through an unlocked window. (I still have my cat burglar skills!) Yesterday was just a lazy day with more swimming and grilling out before we drove back home last night.
I really enjoyed the time down there, especially being able to hang out with Roz and Luke, but I am glad to be back in the Land O’Cheese once again. I missed the house and everyday life with the hubby. There’s no place like home.
