Vacation Pics

I had a blast in Arizona. Okay, after the looong plane ride, I had a blast. :)

The first day we went to the Renaissance Festival, which is amazing. The thing is huge and the buildings are there all year round even though the festival is only eight weeks. I love this one.

Of course there is the normal jousting and fire eating:





And the statue guy was amazing. He never moved at all, until someone gave him a tip and then he did really cool movements.






And what festival isn't complete with a Scottish band?

The rest of the week was filled with shopping (always shopping) :) and going out to eat, painting pottery, and just general fun stuff. Arizona is beautiful with the mountains and catus.

I didn't even write while I was there even though I took my brand new little Dell. Which I love. It's small and easy to carry around. But with margarita's everywhere we went, I never did more than check a few emails on it.

All in all I had a great time, but I'm glad to be back and trying really hard to get back into the swing of things. The day job is crazy busy and SG is not home until next Tuesday. This is the longest we've ever been apart.

Even though this was technically a vacation, it really didn't feel like one. To me, a vacation is where SG and I go to the beach or the mountains and just do nothing. Kinda like L's post yesterday.

So, now he and I are talking about a cruise. I'm not sure when it will be, but that will be a vacation. :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend. And for those who've signed up for the quarterly newsletter it should be out sometime next week.

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,
Vicki

I'll be looking for that newsletter. T and I talked about a cruise when he gets back for good from his "trip." I think its a fantastic idea. I would want to do the Alaskan cruise. Drop the kids at his parents' place in Spokane, WA and leave from there.

It looks and sounds like you did have a blast, but I'm glad you're home. :)

Fun Pics V - but I'm glad you're back - although you probably can't say the same since my mood has sucked lately....LOL

Vicki, sounds like a great time. I've always wanted to go to a renaissance fair. Our town was supposed to get one but the people complained too much and it went elsewhere.

Welcome back, Vicki. Years ago we went to the Renaissance Fair when it was in Largo and had a lot of fun. Our daughter got to ride an elephant, and believe it or not, I got sick on one of those medieval human-propelled rides!
