I did a quick page showcasing a few of the pictures that I do have of Dad - these photos really show what he was about, growing up on the farm, his service in the Army, and hunting & fishing. A perfect birthday tribute! I can *almost* smell that pipe tobacco...
I miss you Dad!
Today, I will ignore the carbs/calories/points and get a Dairy Queen treat. You could always count on my Dad to swing in there for a treat on a hot summer day...
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you get an ice cream treat today!

Let me just dust off the ol' blog here...YIPES! Good news - I finished up everything I needed to *before* vacation. Bad news - no time to blog, lol!
It was back to the "rat race" today, back to work - BLAH!
Here's a quick page (well I don't know how "quick" it was, lol) recapping our fun Florida vacation. The highlight was being at Kennedy Space Center for the shuttle launch! How cool is that? We didn't plan it, it just timed out to be happening during our vacation so we were lucky to snag some tickets. It was PACKED. And HOT! I don't like crowds, but it was SO WORTH IT to be there! We were quite a distance from the launch pad (had to wait until it cleared the tree line to see the shuttle) but it was still very exciting! Then we sat in the 2 hour traffic jam of "space shuttle traffic" (seriously, that's what they called it!) back to Orlando. But it was *STILL* worth it!

Other highlights included mini golf, Universal Studios (love that Simpson's ride! D'OH!), Aquatica Water Park, and a Pirate Dinner Adventure (our pirate won - YAY!) There was also plenty of swimming in the resort pools and late night hot tubbing - and you can never get enough of those tacky touristy gift shops, lol...
We are already thinking ahead to a "beachy" Florida trip for 2010!
