July, July, July.....

The brief flash you see of the final battle between Belatrix and Molly looks so amazing!!!

Molly is one of my favorites - her vengeance resonates with my mother bear instincts.

Cannot wait....

Oh, and the music!! Wow.

A Little Ayn Rand Before the Movie

Man's mind is his basic tool of survival. Life is given to him,
survival is not. His body is given to him, its sustenance is not.
His mind is given to him, its content is not. To remain alive, he
must act, and before he can act he must know the nature and
purpose of his action...To remain alive, he must think.

-John Galt, Atlas Shrugged-

(I have to admit Dagny is not exactly as I pictured her. But still good.)

Eggs Amongst Gobblins & Arches

We spent Spring Break in Southern Utah with our good friends Shayne & Lea and Doug & Tiff.

We kept it simple & real. Very real.

Big Guy almost fell off a cliff face in Arches. Pretty Girl bit the dust 4 times on a .2 mile hike (yes, point 2 miles - not 2 miles). Sweetie got hit in the head with a rock by a very cute deceptively innocent 2yr old. And Pirate decided he didn't like the baby carrier or the backpack and cried non-stop the final mile hike back to the car.

Fortunately, the simple outweighed the real.

One museum visit, a few hikes, planting Easter eggs around stone goblins, lots of swimming time, showing the kids some amazing petroglyphs, one captivating geyser, and beautiful views.

We want to go back next year. (without the "real" part)

Oh, the Shame!

Our darling, clever neighbor provided the clothing. Mom did the manual labor.

Pirate was just confused.

(Shhhh...don't tell Greg about this photo.)

"Hey Mom! Take My Picture With the Baby!"

Our Sweetie must get this side from his Dad.

I was never this un-inhibited.
