In the last episode, we left Ashton bewildered, sitting on an annoyed and increasingly alarmed Silren in the middle of a forest. Far from home, and still recovering from the shock caused by the creatures now surrounding him, all Ashton wants is his old life back… doesn’t he? Well, I guess he’ll have to find a chance to figure that out.
It’s been a busy, busy time around here. Sorry to make everyone wait. I had a wonderful visit from one of my best friends from high school, whom I hadn’t seen in around 18 years. We had fallen out of touch and it was awesome to reconnect. She is also a writer, which we just laughed over the coincidence. She writes scifi/fantasy too, go check her out. francespauli.com
I did manage to get one blog post out about wolf haven, which was a fun and educational field trip with my first grader. When the wolves howled, it sounded awesome. But the best part was the mini-vacation my family took. We spent two days and one night at Great Wolf Lodge. The kidlets had so much fun running around the hotel, playing Magic Quest and battling dragons and solving puzzles. And the water park had a lot to offer, even with small children. I think as a family though, we had the most fun in the wave pool together. But the water slides came in a close second. The only drawback was that the food turned out to be very unexceptional.
That gets us to Earth day. Here in Seattle we had a beautiful Earth day, it was sunny and in the 70’s which is almost unheard of. That is the sort of temps we get at the end of July or August. We spent the day at the beach (and those of us who put on sunblock didn’t get sunburned, lol) My husband is now very red but he led an attack of magnitude proportions on the sand. He encouraged dozens of kids and parents into a monumental sandcastle work that stretched thirty-five feet on a side. Then after hours of building it, the water came and the walls were breached as the children all hurried to hold back the tide. To no avail. The castle was flattened while the kids all cheered. Awesomely fun day.
And then I contracted bronchitis, sigh.
So all in all a very fun filled full two weeks, well except for the last few days, lol.
