Don't get mad/If I'm laughing/Blame the caffeine...

Thanks, Hot Hot Heat, for articulating how I've felt many times this week! Don't really know what I'm writing about, just seemed like a good time. I should do that more often.

It's been a crazy week, full of late nights and early mornings (because of my new improv class and practice for the upcoming rowing race this weekend, respectively). But you know what wasn't like that? Our vacation in Door County last week! That's right, the Conways have done the globetrotting thing, torn up the Mediterranean, not to mention the East Coast, with cousin fun, uncles' crazy stories, and general zaniness in their various attempts to reiunite as a family. Logically, the next stop for Conway Fest 2007 was...Wisconsin! My aunt and uncle just got a beautiful house by the bay up there, and to celebrate, the seven children in my dad's family and their spouses and offspring descended on the penninsula and took full advantage of beautiful weather, yummy food/wine/beer, outdoor activities, and water. It was one of those vacations where you feel rested all the time, and whatever you choose to do with your day is always the perfect choice. We went up for the 4th of July, but I also celebrated the big 2-6 there (on the 7th), with a cousins-only pontoon ride the day before, and Dad-and-Annie-made pancakes on the actual day. Siiiiiiiiiiighhhhh. Lovely.

Pontooooooon! And Annie's tatooooooo!
