It was somewhat cramped and pretty full. Isabel was quite busy and not terribly thrilled with being kept in one spot. Mindful of the annoyance small children can be to other passengers, i made sure she did not pat his head. There were two ladies sitting behind us and they started chatting with her. Isabel remove and play with her bracelets. Isabel enjoyed fiddling with that. She was smiley and chatting and cooing at the ladies who were enthralled with her, telling her how sweet she is and talking to her. Isabel also really enjoyed the tray table. She fiddled with the little lever that raises and lowers the tray. She raised and lowered and raised and lowered the tray, over and over. About the time she started getting tired of the tray table, the stewards came through with the beverage cart and gave her some pretzels. She really enjoyed those, and they kept her engaged for most of the rest of the flight. On the downward descent, she decided she wanted some milky and fell asleep. She woke up when we exited the plane. We had a nice, big comfortable seat by the window. Isabel started nursing before we took off and slept the entire flight. First of all, the seats in the front row are called the bulkhead. Infants cannot sit in the bulkhead because some planes have airbags there. On both legs we were scheduled to sit in the bulkhead so we had to be moved. Luckily our car and room at the motel were air conditioned, so we settled in just fine. Swimming cooled us off nicely for bed.

We saw several people dressed very smartly for church, as well as more than a few shady characters. It makes me feel too much the privileged honky on a poverty tour. Not a comfortable thought, but probably one containing an element of truth. We certainly felt that there was a palpable air of menace and, as we had our three small children with us, we took this advice and stayed in the car. Portobello is a lovely drive. Quijote is the name. Stephenson and her entire staff for a job very well done. Denver for an unforgettable souvenir shopping experience. Ranch, where the mountains meet the metro. Our promise to you includes a clean, comfortable hotel room. Catedral appropriately attired. As the rest of the world must do, they should learn to budget rather than make the rest of us kick up our donations to support their rich and leisurely lifestyle. Something else they offer here are electric candles instead of real flames. You insert a coin and one of the candles lights up like magic. Kendra made me once again test the boundaries of my fear of heights. We had a little time to kill after the church tour, and i had to go to the bathroom. It also had a functional toilet complete with toilet paper, hand soap and paper towels. The drive was long, frustrating and sometimes frightening, especially towards the end. We learned when we checked in that everything would be closed the next day so we had to go back out for groceries, but taking an even more treacherous road than the one we came in on. It was a beautiful route. By the time we returned with groceries and cooked dinner it was too late to do much exploration so we just walked down to the botanical garden and took a short walk along the rocky beach.

Because, even though i have thought, at length, about the validity of them all, the only bag that really makes sense is a backpack. My search has begun, and here are the few i have shortlisted. Please, please, tell me what you think. Vintage red leather backpack, from etsy. Leather, smallish, cute, bright colour, fun. Vintage tan leather backpack, from etsy. Sport backpack, from etsy. Ihad when i was little, masculine enough that the mister would probably want to carry it. In conclusion, i still have no idea. Do me a favour, and let a girl know. So this is going to be mostly photos taken last friday. Winnipeg just about every summer, but a lot of the time the drive was kind of all business. Winnipeg in just two days once. Upsala i wanted to check out. One time when we saw it the water was barely tricking over the edge. Ojibway word gakaabikaa, which means, sigh, waterfall over a cliff. Settlement with many cultures and a giant toothpick i took a crap load of pictures. Really tempting to hop off the bridge onto this bit of rock. Sioux warriors and forced to guide them to her village for an attack. Sioux invaders to their death while she made her way to the village on foot to warn them. Greenmantle also plunges over the falls to her death.

My massage therapist fixes my neck back issues. Well, actually, i could skip. Greek kydos, meaning praise. Skopelos a virtual visit. That balcony is calling me. Skopelos beaches, i must say that the turquoise water is gorgeous and inviting. Meryl, it seems she might be able to sing. College, it was as a music major. Honestly and admittedly, i am starstruck by celebrities when i see them in person or think i am physically tracing their footsteps. But, i have limitations. Skopelos virtually and have no dreams of actually setting foot on the island. Look at her in these photos. Skopelos with a walker. It sure looks like a beautiful place. Shiga last year, but as far as i was concerned at the time, it might as well have never existed. Venice, i may find myself drawing a big red circle round its name on a map. What a difference one television series makes. Chirps i may not have been a fan, but i felt the blow quite heavily all the same. Hoping to catch the autumn leaves. Hiroshima this time. Expect lots of pictures.
