Neglected……..

I’m sorry…I feel like I have neglected my little slice of space here.
Between my spring break vacation with my family and my all consuming trip to Panem, I have neglected those of you willing to stop by just to visit with me.
First, our trip to Cherry Stone Campground on the Chesapeake Bay, VA

We had a large family gathering with my husband’s Virginia cousins coming up to meet us. It was our family, his younger brother and his family in their camper, his parents in their camper with an aunt and uncle bunking with them, and his cousin Elizabeth with her family. It had been way to long since we have all been together. The weather turned on Wed to cold and windy but there was a lot of fun and laughter still to be had!

I finally got to have some real fun with my camera and I had such a great time laughing and sharing and just loving being with family!
I picked up a book on a whim for the trip down. I had no initial interest in the book, never even heard of it before the movie came out but it was on sale and I had heard everyone rave about it so thought what the heck. I haven’t read a book in less than 24 hours in a very long time. I started it on the long drive to VA but kept getting interrupted.  It was finished by Tuesday night and I was itching to read the next book, but no internet connection at the campground. My sister-in-law was reading the second book but she was only half way through it. I kept coveting it, trying to will her to read faster so I could borrow it!! No luck, so I waited till Saturday to down load the second book to my ipad. I finished that book by Monday and just finished the third book today. I think I would have finished it sooner but I had to sleep and go to work Smile which was very frustrating! I can’t say they were the best books I’ve ever read but I just couldn’t imagine what was going to happen next to Katniss and I just needed to find out as quickly as possible. I still think she was a little dense when it came to relationships, which made me start making grumbling noises towards the end of the first book. My husband kept laughing at me.  I have to admit I was very surprised at how quickly I was pulled into the Hunger Games Trilogy and am actually curious to see the movie.
Well back to the real world again, I feel like I am waking up from a long sleep in a land that now invades my dreams. Also back to agility, YAY! AKC trial outside this weekend but it is supposed to rain, fingers crossed it will hold off. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and that all is well with you.
