Things I Want to do Again

I have my computer's screen saver set up to run a slideshow of all my archived photos (and there are A LOT).  For quite a while yesterday, I just sat there watching the slide show.  And I came to the realization, I've done a lot of neat things in my life!  Maybe it's just the fact that this long, cold winter is dragging on and on, but I'm getting a little cabin fever.  I feel like getting out and doing something exciting!  So I thought it might be fun to post some pictures of some of the more interesting things I've done in life.  Please excuse the quality of some of the photos....they were taken before I had a nice camera!

This isn't exactly something I would want to do again but it was neat.
Once when we were out eating, a tornado came through our town and took down
these two pine trees in our front yard.  It was really surprising coming home to find this mess!
We got the opportunity to see American Idol on tour.
Carrie Underwood was my favorite performer of the night.
Hubby and I snuck backstage at a festival concert to see our favorite artist.
The thousands of people in the crowd were a sight to behold!

Hubby and I had the chance to see a Denver Broncos playoff game at Invesco Field.
I'm not really a fan but it was a once in a lifetime experience.
(My team of choice is too embarrassing to admit.)
I fell in love with the city of Denver during this trip!

We were able to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary aboard the Disney Wonder.
That is definitely something I want to do again!

Brookgreen Gardens south of Myrtle Beach, SC is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited!
Taking my very own Princess to Disney World was one of the best trips of my life!  This was the
only time we purchased the dining plan at Disney and it made the trip even more enjoyable!  I ate
like a crazy person that week (which you all know I love to do)!

I will never forget the first time I rode a roller coaster with my son.  I was scared out of my wits
and screamed like a mad woman!  He was braver than me and held my hand the entire ride!
The week I got a new daughter and my first niece was such a special time!
This is a picture of the newborns together in their hospital bassinet.

This is a picture of my boys recording in the studio.
They are both fantastic singers and were featured on a children's CD.

Ah, New York City!  My first time...it was indescribable!

This was the day that 14 of my friends and I ran in a marathon together. 
We're doing it again this year!
