Adventures of a Pseudo Gamer

I usually have about two and a half hours to kill from the time I get home from work from the time Quinn gets home from practice. So last night after work, I turned on the Xbox 360 and played. I started off by playing a little Texas Hold 'Em, a game that we just recently downloaded for free. However, while playing our new Bishop stopped by so I soon began feeling guilty for playing a video game where I was pretend gambling so I then switched to Geometry Wars. I was hoping to be good at this game to make my husband proud. He wants nothing more than for me to become some sort of gamer. Unfortunately, I was NOT good at it. In fact, I stunk! I think I am destined to only be a amateur gamer. I do love my DS but even that game play is suffering as of late as we can't find which box we packed the charger in when we moved. I guess I will just have to find other talents to fine tune and postpone my days of a Gamer until later.

Surfing with the Mosquitoes

This week, our friend Amy invited us to go out on the boat with her to celebrate her birthday. Amy and Travis are in the picutres below.

We had a great time. Quinn tried wakesurfing for the first time and was amazing at it as you can tell from the pictures below.
The water was beautiful and the temperature was perfect. However, we stayed out about 10 minutes too long on the lake. By the time we got back to the dock, we were hit with a swarm of mosquitoes. It was disgusting. Straight out of a horror film. They were so thick it was like a blanket. Amy and I were both hit hard with bites. We now sit at work and try to think up ways to get them to stop itching. So far, not much has worked. Hopefully, the itching won't last long. We've also had several people tell us that now we have the West Nile. We are hoping to get adjoining hospital rooms if that is the case.
