The Pancake Chronicles

Saturday, June 30, 2007


One night
in Victoria,
when the boys were gaming
Alison and I
(not so sneakily)
made our getaway.
Boy free.
Child free.
Free free.
We drove to the ocean to
smile at the waves
and feel the warm wind
and walk on rocks and driftwood.


And to play of course.

I love the third picture. It literally looks like you're floating in mid air. Very cool.

It seems like you always have so much fun, wherever you go. We should totally hang out sometime in this life. :)

Hey Kelly! I have Go-Go Gadget legs, you didn't know?
No I don't.
Just a trick of the camera.
I should blog about the times I don't live life so fully. Like that time I just sat on my derriere for hours on end. Oh wait. Wasn't that SEVERAL TIMES THIS WEEK? :)

Hi Clara! I'm glad they made you happy. :D I was extremely joyous whilst we were taking the photos. The only reason we stopped taking them is because it was getting too dark. We could've gone on for a while longer.

Hi Sonya! I do like to have fun, it's true. But I'm kind of a secret ham. To be silly on demand ... well let's just say my claws come out and my heels dig in. Then I sit for a loooooong time. And then I finally go out and blow bubbles and wish for something silly to happy. I'm kinda sporadic. But I feel silliness inside of me almost constantly. And you know, it would be GREAT to hang out on earth at some point. I would LOVE it. I'm sorry I missed you when I went through Abby. :(

Kori-Bean! (Yes, you've been bean-ed. How do you feel?) My dumb pictures! I contacted Blogger but never heard back from them so I just downloaded them all over again. Took things into my own two paws.
And yes, we were having a GRAND old time. :)

Glad you're back!

Talena - oh yeah, Michael Jordan has nothing on me. Pah! And yup! We were having fun. I could've gone on for much longer had the sun not been rude and decided to set on us. Thlbppp!

Hello Emily Ruth! Thanks! I'm glad they make you smile like they do me. :D

I've often thought that myself. I would have been the best basketball player ALIVE.

They make me smile everytime I look at them, Mindy. It makes me wish I was out on the beach this very moment jumping to my heart's content so I'm glad you love them, too.
