Spent the day today here in camp. Cooking, cleaning and watching a double header on tv. We had another HUGE storm again tonight. Two nights in a row there have been tornado warnings here and they had to take everyone from the tent sites and have them sit in the basement of the camp office. We watched it for hours.

The "highway" runs right through town but we just couldn't get out of there quite fast enough.
We came back to camp and Mike decided to detail the Jeep a bit. I, on the other hand, just enjoyed the view. I think you can understand why ;-)
It's funny how this came about. 2 girlfriends planned on getting fun tattoos on their ankles. They said "why don’t you get one Alena…maybe in honor of your mom". At 35 years old I thought I had reached a point of NEVER EVER getting one. Not to mention THE PAIN! Ideas were thrown around and then this idea came to me…the red balloon symbolizes her free spirited hippie nature, selling balloons cross country in the 1960's, AND ...
