July is Bye Bye

WOW - Does time go by fast when you move across country, have to re-enroll your kids in school, find all new healthcare providers, figure out a new city, learn the culture (and freeway system...e-gads) and deal with humidity!!  - lol

I can't believe I haven't been on since June. There is so much to share and so much to update, but today is not that day. We are driving into Texas for a Hot Air Balloon race-n-glow tonight and I still haven't taken a shower (yea it's 2:00pm already, so what! ; - )

We live in an area called "ArkLaTex" which is basically a tri-state area of, you guessed it - Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana - so you can actually be in another state in 30 minutes in each direction. If you want to drive an hour, you can be in Oklahoma and Mississippi too! Pretty Cool - This girl has a lot of ground to cover and summer is almost over.

We have already been to Vicksburg, Mississippi for some Civil War History, Marshal Texas for some small town main street action and down home cookin' and Monroe, Louisiana for some Boardwalk and Bayou, Hot Springs, Arkansas for some art and lake living-n-tubing fun and "Archibald" Louisiana because...we'll we're Archibald's!!

Like I said - This is going to be a short and sweet Blog to say Hi since we have a day trip planned. Hope every one is enjoying their summer thus far. I know I am!

Life is good. Even on a bad day!!

Vicksburg - We're Yankees!
