Kaylee's airport

Kaylee's class has been studying building and transportation. I guess Kaylee has been to a few airports. She decided to build an airport and her teacher labeled what Kaylee told her everything is. I am glad that Kaylee has a teacher that lets her express her creative side.

Kaylee and her creation

Notice the Starbucks lid: Kaylee informed me that this where you go to get coffee. How sad is it that my child recognizes the Starbucks logo!

The red cup is the control tower.

I knew I had to take pictures because the creation won't last for long! Some of the pieces have already disappeared. Hmmm . . .

Ladies Retreat

My church ladies retreat was this weekend at Sky Ranch.  We stayed up way too late each night, but we had a blast.  I conquered a fear of heights and did the zip line this year.  We decided not to go to shopping this year, but to stay and do activities at the camp.  My group of gals did the zip lines and went on a cattle drive.  Stepping off the platform was extremely hard for me.  I was shaking and REALLY wanted to back out.  I was having a very hard time breathing and began to get light headed.  But, I decided it would be much harder to turn around than just continue, so I did it!  You will see the fear in my face!  

Yes, blogger is still giving me fits when I try to rotate pictures the right way.  So, once again, turn your head to the left as you view the non-rotated pics!  Once I get pics of the cattle drive, I will post those and share my thoughts from it!

The tower was really shaking, which made it even harder to stand up there in anticipation!

I am second from the left.  That is Rachel on the far left, then me, Laurie, and Shannon.

I'm in the far left in this pic right after we stepped off.

Yep, that is an embarrassing pic.  I feel like Gayle from the Oprah show where they did a similar thing.  Oprah loves to make fun of her for that.  

Here we are hanging and waiting for them to help us down.  I was still shaking.  I could barely walk afterwards because I was shaking so much!

It was a great trip of renewal.  I loved hanging with my girls and giggling until after 2:00 each morning.  What a wonderful way to spend a weekend!!  Love you girls!!
