I have been away from my blogging for a couple of weeks. Week one: getting ready for company coming to visit. This week included pressure washing the house, cleaning, shopping, etc. Week two: the visit, which meant cooking, cooking and oh yes, gaining weight!
We did get out a bit and go to the zoo and the guys went to see Iron Man II. For some reason the girls ended up at the mall walking around. We tried a trip to a very nice park but yours truly ended the trip with a coughing, sneezing, allergy attack. Everything was in full bloom and beautiful but the pollen was a killer. Basically we paid to park, walked out about 10 minutes and 10 minutes back to the car. Just as well the rest of group did not seem that interested.
Our other site seeing trip was to a plantation house and the grounds. Take a look at this grand magnolia arch. It is over 100 years old.
Can you imagine having the idea that your family would stay in one place long enough to see your seedlings grow into a magnificant archway like this one?
