Weekly Winners - January 18 - 24, 2009

See? I didn't fall off the face of the planet after all!

I'm just reeeeely bad at planning out posts while on vacation. When I didn't get a chance to write up a post on Thursday before I left, I thought, "Eh, I'll post something while we're in the Dells."

Sha...fat chance.

We spent two days in the Dells at an indoor waterpark hotel with some of our friends and their kids. We ate too much, we laughed a lot and pretty much just enjoyed NOT being freezing cold.

Lots of pics from this week. If you're a new subscriber I swear there will be actually content on this blog sometime soon.

Before we took off for our mini trip, the kids were crawling the walls looking for things to keep them busy indoors.

book tower
When the weather gets COLD, kids get creative.

We took the kids to the museum on Monday (thanks for the holiday, MLK!)

The kids learned stuff.

boy & a butterfly
Like, "Don't poke the butterflies. They don't like that."

Our first night in the hotel the kids were content just to run around like mad
and goof with each other. (Remind me when he's 16 that I once
thought it was cute when he was in bed with an older chick.)
[Insert lots of cute shots of kids swimming and playing here.]

country cemetary
Wisconsin is such a pretty place, even when its covered in snow.
This was just some random country graveyard I saw on the way home yesterday.

scraggly tree
And here's a scraggly tree.

I'm a sucker for old farms.

Now - go check out Lotus for more Weekly Winners!

The 'older chick' photo is wonderful, and I love the tranquility of that last photo of the barns.

I love the farm photo too. We have some old farms where there are bits of machinery all over the place, crumbling walls and paint peeling - but they are so picturesque, I always wish I had a camera with me.
