Back Home

We had a great time and are very glad to be back. The kids loved the beach. We also had a great time in SeaWorld. Hunter got tired of seeing the shows though and said they were all the same. I have to admit they did get old after awhile. I loved to see the exibits and learn about all the sea life. We also had a good time in Old Town. If you want a great place to stay go to the Pacific Terrace Hotel. Very friendly staff. And great chocolate on your pillow each night. The only complaint I have is that Mike couldn't go. I wish he was there to share this vacation with the rest of the family. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

I hope All of you enjoy these recipes as much as me and my family do.

Kielbasa Pasta

1 Kielbasa sausage-sliced
8 oz mushrooms sliced
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 cube butter or margarine
2 tomatoes diced
Fresh or dried oregano

Sauté mushrooms in butter and garlic. Add kielbasa and heat through. Last add tomatoes and oregano to taste. Toss together with angel hair pasta.

I recieved this recipe from my sister. We love it on hot summer nights, when you need somthing fast.

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Place olive oil in hot pan. Add rest of ingredients and cook for 5 minutes. Toss with cooked angel hair pasta. Very good with cooked shrimp also.

I am realy busy this week. I am trying to get everything ready for our trip to San Diego for all of next week. I don't know if I should be excited to go or worried since Mike isn't going. So I will have the kids all to myself. But I just keep telling myself I have them everyday so what is the big deal. It should be fun. Family reunions always are interesting though. My kids have been excited to go for over a month now. And they are being little beasts this week. I don't know if it is pent up excitement or what. I hope it ends this week and they are good for me next week. I want to have some kind of vacation.

In God We Trust

Most major radio stations won't play this song by Diamond Rio. So I thought I would play it for you. Make sure you turn off the music on the bottom of the page.
