Vacation's Over.

Well, that was it.  It took me a while to post a new blog because real life is a pain in the butt.  All with the working and cooking and cleaning and whatnot.  It seems like life should be a lot more vacationy in general.  But if the Simpsons have taught us anything, it's that without hard work and monotony, vacations would lose their value altogether.  So lets say goodbye to carefree living and hello to all of life's little crap.


So just to make sure I can't fee any crappier about this whole thing, I'd better post some more pictures from our trip.  Enjoy.  I know we did!

In Virginia, we made lots of breakfasts.  Here is Jen making pancakes.  Alright, pancakes!

Real happy!

Fake happy!

In Virginia, we visited a Civil War historical site called Slaughter Pen farm.  This was the site of some gruesome battle.  The barn in the picture wasn't there at the time and someone had been living on the land until recently.  There were lots of creepy old buildings to nose around in like a true Long vacation!  This picture isn't terribly scenic, but I think it's a good picture.  Taken by Jennifer, of course.

The capital.  Capitol?  Capittle!

The Washington Monument.  Momument?  Get it?

So that was that and now it's all over.  We should have got a before and after picture so you can all see how happy we were on vacation and how miserable we are now.  But that's life right? 

No!  I don't think everyday life should be a chore.  Sure, every day can't be a vacation, but it's important to take time and pick out the good things in life.  It's hard to remember sometimes.  But if every day is a drag, then you aren't trying hard enough to have fun.  Enjoy the little things.  Yeah, that's the ticket!

So that's all for now.  We haven't really done anything of note lately worth blogging about.  As every, we shall keep you all posted.


  1. Love the pics. I didn't get a chance to visit Slaughter Pen but maybe next time. I want to see your house...can you post a tour of your new house? ;)

  2. Love thie pics and commentary. That's the key to enjoying life as a whole: enjoying the little things day by day! Like a good cup of coffee, reading a good book, spending time with family and friends, enjoying the sunset or sunrise during a run, taking a good dump, eating at Schlotsky's, watching movies and your favorite T.V. shows, and visiting Y2 Komics.
