Great Couple of Weeks!

These last couple of weeks have been pretty nice. Last week Chip and I did some housesitting for his parents while his parents and his sister's family went to Nags Head. We had the whole house to ourselves which was nice out on the lake. We came home this past Monday and have been spending some lazy days here at home and then today we went to the Geocaching Hampton Roads 6th Annual Picnic. We got there a little late but there was plenty of food left, then we went to do some geocaches in the park. We got 4 in the park and one on the way home. I gave away a few of our signature pins and did some geocoin trading too. We stopped at City Center on the way home because we thought that the Va Symphony was going to be giving a free concert by the big fountain but when we got there the stage was empty so we went to find the cache that was located next to the Omni Hotel there anyway. I went into the Omni to ask if the symphony was playing tonight but they told me they had played last night! BUMMER!!! Oh well, at least we found another cache and it was not a total wasted trip to stop. The funny thing was that when we went to get the cache it was in a far corner of a parking lot and there was a car parked there with a young couple in it. I think they were making out:) We heard a lot of giggling while looking for the cache. I don't think they paid us any mind though. Overall it was a great day with great weather and thank goodness it didn't rain although it was pretty much overcast all day. We also won a door prize of a tb/coin too:) Lots of fun! Here are some pics of the picnic

A Very Nice Evening:)

Last night 8/9/08 Chip and I decided to go to the City Center and check out one of the movies that the dept of parks and rec. are putting on during the month of Aug. on Sat. nights. It was a great night with temps around the low 80's in the day and prob. in the 70''s or 60's in the evening. We got there early and got a front row spot in front of the large screen they had outside in front of the large beautiful fountain with the surrounding Marriott hotel and upscale shops behind that. After picking our spot I went to the stand while Chip held our spot and I got some free popcorn and a couple of sodas to enjoy while watching the movie under the stars. The movies was started between 8 or 8:30 pm. The movies they play are family movies and there were a lot of people, at least a couple hundred with their families or with their dates, significant others, or possible couples on their first dates. It was very romantic:) For a children's movie Charlottes Web is a very much a movie that can be enjoyed by adults as well. It was a very emtional movie and was moved to tears toward the end. I can remember reading the book when I was young and the movie did a great job of capturing it. Although the movie has been out a while, I had not seen it and it made the occassion very special to see it under the stars holding hands with my sweetheart. Afterwards we went to Sonic and got a late night dinner and ice cream. It was a great night indeed:)

A New Day A New Blog

Today we are going out since Chip has a doctor's appt., then we are probably going to the mall. I'm hoping I can talk him into going to get some Thai food tonight? I guess I've finally gotten more into the new age of technology, I usually keep twitter on the whole time the computer is on and creating this blogspot was a bit step for me too. I even signed up on Second Life which is kind of like a sims game online but the reason I found and joined that is because I joined the gimpgirl site where they have weekly support meeting on Second Life. It really is a cool site and I'm sure I will be spending quite bit of time in there too. Well, that's it for now:)

Twitter is Great!

Cool! I just signed up with the Hampton Roads Twitter meetup group. I hope we can attend some of the meetings some time:) I also found a great civil war site for Chip through Twitter too.
