We did quite a bit of rearranging at my place this weekend. Just wanted to show off some of the results. It's so much better than it was. This is the kitchen, well half of it. The other half my landlord has some awful, greenish-yellowish yucky color. But this wall is great!

This is the office. Still needs some fixing and putting away. I also wish we could paint, but again the landlords said no. :(

This is the rearranged living room. Unless you saw it before, frequently, you may not realize the difference. Ha! Look in the corners by the couch. The rug is amazingly soft, so definitely wanted to keep it, but a bit too big for the room. We had to improvise a bit. Reminds me of Elvis, or that commercial where the dude carpets the entire walls and ceiling.

Oh...and gotta love this Monster! Sure makes Greys anatomy so much better:) Ok, and everything else!

The Skank Tank!

Just wanted to post this pic of Eric on his dad's "Skank Tank." Yes, that is my own personal nickname for the bike. Why you ask? It's one of those bikes that has a picture of a not so nice girl on the gas tank and back fender. Don't get me wrong. The bike is awesome! But needs a paint job. Sun-glasses at night? Ha. That's just funny. Isn't he so cute?!!! Just love him!

Pinnacle Peak

Eric's dad Robert came to Tucson with Eric this weekend. Fun times. We went out to eat at this place called Pinnacle Peak. Kinda this old western-y looking, show, singin on the street, old general looking stores steak house place. Good times. The food was good and the entertainment.....was ok:) Here's a few pics.... This is lookin down one of the mini streets.

Around back, there was a mini train to take people for rides....apparently its broken right now.

Eric and I on our way in. Isn't he so adorable.....(even the gum you can see in his mouth...:)

This is Eric and his dad watching the banjo playin fool.
Didn't get a pic of him.

Our last morning camping, Eric and I took cimm on a very fun and muddy ride around the mountain. We ended up at the New Mexico border. Somehow I was the only one who ended up muddy. Eric rode to fast, and Cimm has all his wheel covered on the quad. So as you can see, I was a mess...but it was fun!
It doens't look at bad as it was. BUT.....It was fun! I'd do it again in a heart beat.

Eric, trying to be a good sport at our family talent show. It was raining :)

This jeep belongs to a friend of my sister who camped with us. He bought it from a friend of his who restored the entire thing. Every gauge and gadget on that jeeps works like new. I hear it was even in the movies (or one movie) in its earlier days. I just thought it was amazing!

All the kids begged and begged for Eric to take them for rides on this quad. Even after one casualty, (my neice hit her head and got a gash in her forehead on the handlebars) and supergluing it back together, the beggars kept begging. Good times! I decided we actually needed at least 3 more days camping!

Camping in Luna!

It has been awhile since I put up any pictures. Not much going on. Over Labor day, Eric and I headed up to Luna to attend my many year standing family reunion. I think I have only been one time since 2000, and it was especially sad without mom there. Dad hadn't been there in so many years, the difference was mom. Not to mention the camping has changed. I remember when there were mostly tents....and everyone stayed together. Now there are very few tents....and lots of trailers, motorhomes, and toy haulers. Fun times no matter what. Probably 50 quads, a few Rhino's, a 1940's completely restored army jeep, 1 motorcycle, a couple Zip lines, a tire swing, and all the water and rain a kid would want to play in! I don't know what it is about water and catching crawdads (sp?)
Anyway, this is a pic of Eric's and my camp, with his Bike and a friend's quad we borrowed for fun!

Did I mention there was one outhouse for a lot of us to share? Ha! Good times!

Every time I looked at this part of camp...it just made me smile! I Love my cousins the gibbons'. They have an awesomely large fun family, and take up an entire end of the meadow. I think they were the first family to ever bring a trailer to the reunion....and now look how they've grown. :)

This is my way awesome cousin Jay-boy! He is a reason this reunion is so....fun. He lives for the company of family every year....and makes us all laugh histarically. Love ya Jay!
