funny pictures - Just my luck. The other pet in my new forever home is an uber friendly, jowl flapping, saliva slobbering, mammoth St. Bernard!

This weekend was the Oregon Swimming Championships. We call it State even though the entire state doesn't compete there and we actually live in Washington. But we are so close to the Oregon border, it makes more sense for us to be affiliated there than up in Seattle.

The ten year old and the eight year old swam. Both did well. I'm very proud of them! My son had a better day on Saturday than Sunday, but that happens sometimes. A good life lesson. My youngest swam in two relays today. The best part was swimming with the three other girls. I swear my kids would rather be in a pool or skiing on snow. Water seems to be the connecting factor to many of their fave activities.

Another virtual book tour stop today. I'm at Romance That is Out of the World. I'm talking about how I came up with the idea for Expecting Royal Twins! Remember to head over there and comment if you want to be entered in the book tour's $20 Amazon gift certificate giveaway.

Update: Thanks for your votes. Expecting Royal Twins! is the Book of the Week at LASR! I'll post the video they made me tomorrow!

Thanks Lyn! I'm a very proud mother. I never expected them to be at state this year, but it was very cool.

And I just headed over to your blog! I was hoping to be the first commenter but you and Mary must be early risers or live in east of me!
