I went home last weekend for about four seconds. Had a flight going out Friday night and sat on the plane for three hours before it was canceled. The earliest flight I could get on the next day departed at 2:40 p.m. So I ended up spending only a good 36 hours in Michigan. But I think it was worth it. It has been my little sister’s 21st birthday basically all month now and I think this was the cumulation: a dinosaur bounce. And my momma even jumped in it:

Then we deflated it and my cousin Danielle tried to ride it and failed:

And we jumped on the trampoline and laughed so hard we almost died. Me, my two sisters, and my mom. Hilarious.

And last but not least, Alexandra’s Alice in Wonderland cake:

If I knew how to spell the bakery it’s from enough to even find it on Google, there would be a link. Maybe somebody will post the name in the comments. :)

Hi! This is where I’ve been the last few days. Myrtle Beach, SC. Spent the weekend with nine of the coolest people and it was the perfect break. I don’t seem to have too many pictures, since we spent hours on the beach and I didn’t want to drop my camera in the sand (like somebody…) This picture of the beach was taken from the balcony of the condo. I replaced traffic noise with beach waves.

Proud Papa in his new SC digs, picking out some tunes.

This picture is why it’s fun to let other people use your camera. Thank you, Jeff, for capturing this lovely moment.

Gawking at the crazy fish at Broadway at the Beach. Broadway at the Beach is this strip of touristy shops and restaurants, not to mention the strangest area of bars like Senor Frogs and Fat Tuesday. Half Spring Break Central and half Bachelorette parties. I saw at least five. Also 100% very interesting folks. These people are the SOUTH. The hair, the clothes, the accent, the tribal tattoos (yes). We had a lot of fun putting on fake Southern accents ourselves. It was a different world. Anyway, the fish that live at Broadway at the Beach are disgusting. If you’ve ever been to Cedar Point (America’s Roller Coast), it’s like the fish by the Iron Dragon. If you haven’t been, just know it’s not pretty. But we carry on:

Because we found dinosaurs!

Myrtle Beach 2010! Ha. I’m lucky that I know people who will travel and we can take trips in groups. It’s so much fun. Also, exhausting. I am one sleepy, sleepy bear today. One more Myrtle Beach post for tomorrow, as we went to a seafood buffet. It may or may not be what you imagine. ;)

Happy Monday!

Alright, alright. Here’s my last “Christmas” post for ya. I love Christmas. I love my family. I’ve gotten to see pretty much everyone in the past few days and it has been lovely. I don’t even know where to begin. My cousins just blew up facebook posting five billion pictures of us hanging out together and I love it all.

I love it almost as much as I love this blanket my little sister made for my mom this year:

Yep, those are dinosaurs and yep, they do represent our family. We’ve got the momma dino and the three baby dinos (of which, I am the stegosaurus, btw). I hope next year she makes me a blanket as awesome as this (hint, hint).

Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and there’s more posts to come from this Detroit trip!
