Running a skype meeting from a bar??

We had a great time on vacation.  I'm home now and settled back in.  We're getting ready for school to start in a few days.  I can't wait! :)  Lots of fun things happened while we were gone, though.

We went to the water park and a great time was had by all--even me.  I wish we'd been able to stay longer.  We took one of Miss McKenzie's friends with us and they were having so much fun I would have liked to stay.  Turns out that I like water rides a lot better than roller coasters.  There's not nearly so much falling.

Swiffer enjoyed his day at preschool.  When we went to pick him up he was enjoying the company of a couple other little dogs, which was weird since he doesn't work and play well with others.  The girl who watched him said he was happy to meet the other dogs as soon as he entered the play yard.  Hmmm...maybe he's been holding out on me.

We also camped on Lake Superior, which we've always wanted to do.  It was beautiful, even though it was hot.  The sunset over the water was so pretty.  Every time I thought it had reached it's most beautiful moment and put the camera away, it got better!  The water was absolutely silver with the glowing clouds over it.  Then, when it finally got dark, the stars were amazing!  I laid on the picnic table and just stared up for a long time.

When we got back to Boulder Junction, Travis needed to go to a meeting using Skype.  So we went in to town and checked out the internet cafe.  It's called the Dancing Bear Cafe and they make an absolutely phenomenal Iced Vanilla Frappe. They put a mountain of whipped cream on it, too.  Anyway, we did a test run of the Skype ahead of time to make sure it would work out since the meeting would be after hours. When we came back in the evening, we sat at a couple iron tables out front of the cafe and signed in to Skype.  It turned out that the only place he could get good reception was at the farthest table which put everyone looking over his shoulder at JJ's Tap!  And the clientele there were having a rousing good time out front.  So everyone in the meeting was teasing Travis about running the meeting from a bar, lol.

As an aside, this sign was in front of an antique store across from the Dancing Bear.  It got a good laugh from all of us, so I took a picture.  I think I need one of these for my yard, lol!
