A Visit to the Bennetts

Sorry it's been so long and let me begin this post by saying that there will be no pictures for a little while, but yesterday Catherine and I visited the house she is working on, Groombridge Place...the Bennett's house in Pride & Prejudice.
It was a fun trip, and although the house is currently covered in scaffolding because it is being worked on it was still fun to see. The house is surrounded by an "Enchanted Forest" which was filled with things like a dragon's nest, a serpent's lair, a mystic pool and even a little village called Mossy Bottom. Whoever came up with all of the little spots along the way must have had a real hoot coming up with not only the places but the very entertaining sign posts. After walking around a standing stone backwards three times were were able to make a wish, then we walked a double spiral in order to find ourselves and we also had the opportunity to see into the future through the mystic pool...all in all a pretty good day superstition-wise.

Leaving on a jet plane

Well I leave today to return to England. I had a fantastic summer filled with lots of visits and even more shenanigans. Just wanted to let the readership know that I will be out of the blogging commission for a little bit, but have no fear I will return as soon as I can sit myself down and get my computer up and running.

A hotdog....really?

We all have moments in life that we would like to forget. After seeing pictures of Katy and her sisters growing up I decided to look through some of my old pictures and boy did I find some real gems. Take for example this little beauty.Yes, that is me. Not only am I sporting a red and white striped belly shirt, but I was somehow convinced to pose triumphantly with a hotdog in my hand. Part of me is incredibly embarrassed that this was caught on film, and yet another much larger part is a little proud that this picture is in existence.
Next comes the phase of my life where I was obsessed with dance. This Polaroid (can I just say that I love that this was caught on instant film) is of me and some girl (no idea who that is) at dress rehearsal. Notice the extensive use of blush and red lipstick, nice. I am also fond of the sequined pillbox hat.Now this one is a phase in my life that I REALLY wish never happened. Jackie and I were discussing how when we’ve met new people in new places we conveniently leave out minor details of our lives. Let me tell you my membership on the 98’ Jasper Jazz drill team is one of those things that may be left out of my past from time to time. Again, more sequins not to mention fringe.This final one is by FAR the most amazing family picture in existence. Where to begin?! Lets start with the fro my mom is sporting, love it. Now move on to Jenna’s awesome shirt complete with an embroidered medal that I can only assume she won for wearing such awesome shorts. Moving further to the right is Jill wearing a festive belt made of curly ribbon and what I believe are Z. Cavaricci jean shorts. Once again I am in a red and white striped ensemble luckily this one is a little less revealing than the previous. And to top it all off my dad is dressed as the spitting image of Uncle Sam if he was beardless, bald and preparing to lead the Plano 4th Ward 4th of July Bike Parade. I LOVE THIS PICTURE!

Hope you enjoyed the memories, I know I did.
