Here I am

Where have I been?

Where have I been?

when I looked at the last entry "Here I Go" and then looked at the date of November 2011  -- I realize that I never went anywhere but now I am here!

It has been an interesting and boring 6 months since I tried to do this. I had said that I would go back a bit over some of the trips that I had done in 2011 and never did it soooooo:

May 2011
- my sister, Heather and I took a car trip to Florida with our kids. We took two cars full of kids - when I say kids they ranged from my 6 year old great niece Lily,  to my two kids Jenna 22 and Tyler 26 and his girlfriend at the time Lindsay, to  my niece Becky(Lily's mom) and my sister in law Judy. It was a fun trip overall with us renting a house in Kissimee while Tyler and Lindsay took one car to New Orleans and we tackled Disneyland. No spouses to take care of or worry that they were not having fun.
- I should have written all the details about the trip at the time because I know I had some really good advice about the whole thing but I have forgotten what it was

Sept 2011
We had our fall get together at Bon Echo Provincial Park - we had four campsites, many kids, dogs and a lot of raccoons. We did a whole turkey dinner for the crowd with a dessert competition judged by my brother and his wife from Nova Scotia which was ultimately won by a store bought dessert -- I sort of forgot to make any rules but what a whoot! We try to do this each year at a park since our home in Omemee is not really large enough to handle the herd

November 2011
 The Huffman Herd/Gang journeyed on a Mediterranean Cruise - now this trip incuded a wide range of ages from 26 year old to 82 year old==total of 13 people invading the European Continent. It was a blast. From my niece Brydie's amazing talent at karoke, to napkin folding lessons, to the unbelievable organization by my brother Herb--it was a memory maker. Again I wish I had written about it at the time.

now that is done, I wonder if I will be back soon or not? Heck I think I will post this and start again --talk later
