Finally Relenting to Technology!

I am now a proud owner of this adorable little IPOD Nano!

I have wanted an IPOD for quite some time now, but already had a fine functioning
MP-3 player. The problem? Mine is a Phillips, and they make barely any accesories for it. Even Phillips makes a docking station for the IPOD. What the???!

I also purchased a docking station for this today at Target. I can't wait to get it charged and full of songs.

Since all 3 girls will be in school I am considering taking up running again. I was an avid runner MANY many years ago. I play softball every summer but with my heart condition I thought it would be a good idea to keep the ol' ticker strong all year long, know what I mean?

Here are some snapshots from our Tennessee vacation last month, the first one is Chloe and I. We were eating at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Their food is WONDERFUL.

Then this is me, Taylor, Hanna, and Chloe at Gatlinburg. The girls were showing off their treats from the candy shop!

And me at the Ripley's Aquarium....isn't this hot??!

We played crazy golf on the side of the mountain. Chloe cheats, big time. Doesn't she look sweet and innocent, hehe?

My mom and the girls as we begin our descend up the side of a mountain. The 'beware of bear' signs were a little intimidating.

Playing in the waterfall at the end of the trail. I can't even fathom how God can create such beauty.



I just thought this view was breathtaking.

And that little black image is a bear. Yes, a real live bear we witnessed along the trail. Chloe was convinced that we were it's next snack!


I'm off now to put the kiddos to bed, night everyone!
