The other day the boys were talking about Mother's Day, and Dad told them to get me a card. I told them to trash that idea--"Make me a card. That's so much cooler." Next thing I know, they're talking about the kind of Magic the Gathering Card they're going to design for me.
Yeah. My obsessions. Whatchagonna do?

We were kinda right. The searing temperatures were moderated. It was not, however, livable. It was so windy we had to spend most of our time in the tent or car, and we had to come home early because the wind was so powerful our tent wouldn't remain standing.
But we got in a few cool hikes and got to see some beautiful things. So it was still very worth it.
I swear, Camelbaks are fantastic for keeping a kid happy on a hike.
Things I learned this trip:
- Always, always, always have a blat-bucket handy in case of car-sickness.
- Bring a dustpan and small broom anywhere there is lots of sand.
- I prefer the cream sun-screen--not the spray on.
- Bean bags are the best camp toy in the world.
- I must buy a wind-breaker.
- It is not a bad idea to have an extra tarp on hand, and a cord to tie it with. You know, just in case.
