Weekend in Review / Movie Review Monday  
So.  I had a great weekend.  We took sweet friends of ours down to the cabin this weekend, and very much enjoyed the company, but they left on Saturday afternoon, and we had the rest of the weekend by ourselves.  The boys decided that the pond was warm enough to go swimming in, and stripped down to their altogether, but I won't post those nearly pornographic pictures here.  :)

May's podcast is up at D & G.com.  It's a monster at an hour and a half.  I'm kind of disappointed in it, I lost the first one I recorded and had to redo over half of it, so I was pissy and tired the second time through.  June's will be better.  Angsty and sad, but better, no doubt.

I'm a little panicked about the exchange.  Just a little.

I saw Bringing Up Baby this weekend.  I'm a huge Katherine Hepburn/Cary Grant fan (The Philadelphia Story = LOVE) but I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I didn't love this.  I watched it, and I laughed in places, but I don't need to own it.  I DO like it when Cary Grant's hair gets all messed up.  Wow.  And (big surprise) hubby fell asleep, so there's his review.  Not enough car chases and shooting, I guess.

Aaron got tired during the nature walk.                                         My ragamuffins.

Katie the amazing water wonder dog.  She swam and played fetch as many times as we threw the stick for her.

Hey, raise your hand (Emily Kaye) if you thought you'd never see me in a cowboy hat.  (Ahem.  Western hat, right.  Thanks, Nolan.)

Have a great week!

*raises hand* What a pretty place you were in!

The boys are getting so big. And Katie is absolutely adorable. I wish my dog would bring the stick back to me when I throw it. She'll just take it and drop it about 50 feet away from where I'm standing.

Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Is your getaway spot pretty close? You seem to go there often. Do you get to write when you're out there?

I'm jealous. I wish I had a swimming wonder dog. ;-) I have an annoying fluffball a cat. Just kidding, he's a lot of fun. We're going to get a puppy for him to beat up play with. (I'm kidding - he's not even a year old, and they're going to love each other.) Yeah, my kids always liked running around in their underwear (or nothing) until they were about 8.

You know, I've never watched Bringing Up Baby. It just looked silly to me, and I only like parts of The Philadelphia Story. Not my favorite Katharine Hepburn movie.

Yeah, I think a lot of us are starting to feel panicked about the exchange. I'm about halfway through mine, but I am getting a bit concerned. :-/

It's about an hour and forty-five minutes away from our house. I do write when I'm there. I sat on a blanket under a tree with my notebook while the boys fished this weekend. That's fun.

Don't bother with Bringing up Baby. It's not good. At all.

Concerned. Yeah. Concerned, panicky, wibbly... Yikes.

Wonderful pics! I wish we had somewhere like that to go and just get away from life :)

I'm starting to move from the slightly panicked camp into the panicking a lot camp *nods*

You have no reasons to be worried about the exchange. Your entries are always great and finished and everything. I, however, have not even started yet *sheepish*

Not that you don't already have tons on your plate, but if you're interested in a start-up HP RPG with a bunch of d/g aurthors and other great writers, drop by culpaepatria *bats eyelashes*

You're boys are too cute, and I'm sure you can appreciate that through the pictures as well. Now I'm sure being around them 24/7 is a different story *g* Oh! And I really do love that icon...it is the one I associate with you out of all the one's you use :)

I really would do that, I would, but I couldn't possibly, I'm already overloaded. But I'm having fun watching!

I like this icon, too. It's my HAPPY one.

I really liked Bringing Up Baby and I haven't even seen the whole thing! It's a great silly, fun movie to put you in a good mood. You really can't go wrong with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. I think I've told you of my love for The Philadelphia Story.

Katie's so cute! I really hope that Molly loves swimming when we take her up to the cottage in a few weeks. I'm worried that I traumatized her when she was a little baby!
