wet noodle whipping time

Ok. I know. I know. I am a horrid blogger. I let y'all down repeatedly. Disappear for weeks on end. But that is me. Just whip me with a wet noodle & I'll try to do better. We've had some busy days in there & lots of pouting (missed Rob horribly for the month he was in Hohenfels.) But he is back & I am much happier. Last Saturday was Girl Scout Thinking Day. (which is where each troop learns about another country then on thinking day they share with the other troops what they learned.) It's fun & educational. & since I had the Fleming family on post already we followed it up with our March Theme night. This month was "The Birds." I stuck bird silhouettes all over the walls & we ate chicken. Hey, we got a giggle out of it & was easy peasy. The girls weren't too keen on it & the peanut gallery (including me,) were being snarky & making fun of the characters. I mean really - you're going to escape in a soft top convertible when those birds can break though windows and doors - sheesh. Next time I am thinking we're going to introduce the kids to Abbot & Costello.
This up coming Saturday Lisa & I are having our joint birthday party. Mine is April 7th & hers is the 6th. So as the next weekend starts spring break & they are flying off to London & we are starting our road trips - we figured the week before is good. We are going to take 2 days in Berlin. 1 to see the sights (that are on our list as it is too huge to see everything - & 1 for the zoo/aquarium.) We also have planned a driving tour through the black forest & not sure what else. Before that on the 8th both families are going on an underground tour of Bamberg. There are miles of tunnels beneath the city.
While at Thinking day the males of both the Forrey & Fleming family got bored & found the way to hell. One of the countries that one of the other troops covered was Turkey. It was very cool because for 1 we are planning to go around August & for 2 there was wonderful Baklava. They gave me the site for the recipe.
I have been drawing a tiny bit, but need to draw more. It is so beautiful today, I need to go ride my bike. Hard to believe, but they are calling for snow on Wednesday. Ugh, ok. I am officially sick of winter.
Well, I think I have rambled on enough for today. I hope you are all doing fantabulous & will do my darndest to write again soon.
