Hello, :O) well just wanted to drop a note to all my readers and let you know that I am headed out for vacation. I'll try to pop in but sometimes cell service cuts out and I won't be able to make it in. Over the next 10 days I will have several guest posters as well as posts of my own that are preset to post. We are headed to the Colorado area to see areas like Silverton and Chama. We will be doing a little bit of gold panning, off roading and a lot of camping! Don't forget that there will still be giveaways running so make sure to come back for your daily entries. I hope you really enjoy the guest posts please make sure to check out their blogs to thank them for helping me out while I am gone. I hope your family has a fun and safe 4th of July. Stay tuned for lots of fun things when I return hehehe.
