Vacation Ramblings

Withdrawl - It is midnight here and what am I doing? Browsing through the splitcoaststampers gallery of course. Being away from home does not mean that I have to suffer right? You know you are addicted when you cannot even go away for the weekend without checking in on SCS.

Friday we drove to Utah and went to the Peach Festival in Hurricane, UT. It was small, but fun. The kids enjoyed playing in these big blow up jumping things and playing on the big blow up slide with their cousins. They also got to have navajo tacos and peach cobbler and see their grandma and grandpa.

Saturday, we woke up and tried to make a plan. Two hours later we had it figured out. It always takes awhile to get a plan made with M's family because there is lots of family. Anyway, the guys ended up playing X-BOX and the girls went to Grandee's for ice cream. I had the most delicious S'mores sundae. Then we went to Roberts Crafts, Payless, and Hollywood Video where we got "Take the Lead" to watch in the evening while the boys were going to watch Football. We all went to Costa Vida for dinner. They have the most yummy burritos there -- Mmmmmm. After that the kids were tired, so we put them to bed and all the girls watched the movie. It was really good. Antonio Banderas is FUN as a ballroom dance teacher.

Okay, and I finished one of the books I was reading. Here is the review:

The Undomestic Goddess - Sophie Kinsella
I really enjoyed this book. I had read the entire shopaholic series and this book did not disappoint me. I find that if I really like something I will tend to read it faster, but if it is just so so it could take me weeks. I read the book in one day (I was supposed to be packing and paid for it later by having to pack into the night). Sophie Kinsella writes fun books, and her characters are interesting and somewhat loveable. I enjoyed that there was humor, a little romance, and I liked the imagery and idea of the book, it really took me away. All in all, a good book, easy quick read, perfect for the stay at home mommy or a beach read.

I've read several of Kinsella's books, so I'll look for this one soon - sounds like another fun one! Thanks for sharing your review!
