Have you even been somewhere (lake, beach, waterpark, working outside) and knew by midday that you were frying your body in the heat of the sun. But then you had a choice whether to put a shirt on, get in the shade and stay out of the fun OR you could keep having fun, but know that you’d be partially miserable later because of a sunburn?

Let’s just say that I’m partially miserable right now. It’s 5a.m. and I’m up because I had to go to the bathroom and replenish some H2O not long ago and now can’t get back to sleep because of some sunburned shoulders/face. Good fun!

But Geyser Falls with Russian kids is a time to remember. And on the ride there you can find what songs bridge the international communication barrier. It seems that the “Woo Hoo” song (you know it, Woo hoo, woo hoo hoo) and the theme from Mission Impossible were there faves. My good old Zen Micro was rocking the van all the way there. But we rode back in a suburban w/ a faulty tape deck, so the adapter didn’t work.

Here’s to hoping I go to sleep soon so I can get up and buy a house in a matter of hours!
