Belated Blogiversary!! And soaking up summer

While out playing this last weekend, I was thinking how I should blog about whatever adventure I was on at the moment - which I now don't remember what it was I was thinking of writing about - and then it hit me... my 2-year Blogiversary was June 13! And I missed it! Bad blogger.

So, happy belated Blogiversary to my little blog!! It's been fun, playing here in my little corner of the blog universe. I know I've been MIA lately, but there is much too much fun to be had in the summer sun, taking me away from the computer (and I still am internet-less at home, so that doesn't help)... but I'm not giving up on you, my li'l baby!

If it is the least bit sunny outside, I absolutely cannot justify staying inside. With each passing moment indoors, this panicked urgency starts gripping my heart - I'm missing precious sun-time! I will actually get grumpy if I can't get out and play. No sleeping in for me (minus last Saturday, and I was quite bummed that my morning was "wasted" sleeping, even though I probably needed it since I went to bed the night before at 3am, lol). My house is in dire need of organizing and cleaning, but I just can't do it. I'm stuck inside all day during the work week, so when the weekend rolls around, it's playtime - that 5 o'clock "bell" rings on Friday afternoon and I mentally check out of work mode like my life depends on it.

Hiking, biking, rafting, barbecues, pool parties, dancing... I just can't get enough of summer...

Suiting up... our wetsuits are s-e-x-y!

Ready to ride the rapids! (I'm crouched in the front row, 2nd in from left.)

Moonlight hike sans the moon... cloudy skies and forest fire smoke didn't keep us from climbing!

Climbing down (I just noticed that I'm totally color-coordinated, lol!)

With the bros and Dad on Father's Day.

Pool par-tay! (I'm standing in the back.)

Head for the hills!

Ballet, mid bike ride :)

I don't mess around with mid-ride snacks - forget energy bars, most of them taste like wood anyway... hell-ooooo fruit & chocolate!

I hope you all are enjoying summer as much as I am! Get out there and enjoy the sun, the surf, the mountains, whatever it is that you have... summer is here and gone before we know it!!
