We just got back from a 2.5 week vacation in sunny Spain. It was great - a perfect combination of relaxation and sightseeing. And the weather was idyllic. It only rained twice while we were there, and neither time was enough to stop us from doing what we wanted to do. I need to edit the gazillions of pictures we took down to a select few, and then I'll post some.

In the meantime, you can see one at my husband's blog. They're two of the young apes of Gibraltar. They're the funniest things - a bunch of wild apes who live up atop the Rock of Gibraltar. But they're completely used to humans and have no fear. In fact, if you even dare to have a plastic bag near them, they'll grab it away from you and take off with it, hoping to find food inside. I had a leftover sandwich in a plastic bag, and when we got off the funicular at the top, there was a sign about the plastic bags. We didn't really take it seriously, but then an ape threatened me, so I bundled it up and put it in my purse. Well, after we'd spent some time there walking around, I decided I wouldn't be wanting that sandwich for myself anyways. So I got the bag out of my purse and started opening it. Kenneth grabbed the bag from me because he thought I was being too loud. Then all of a sudden we had two monkeys running towards us at full speed! He panicked and threw the bag away (which was hilarious at the time, but difficult to reproduce in blog format). The monkeys chased the bag and had no problem opening it and retrieving the sandwich. So cute.

Anyways, when we got back, we had a ton of TV saved up on the PVR. Last night we watched the season finale of NCIS. I was completely blown away by the ending! They killed Kate! It was so unexpected. The whole beauty of that show is the chemistry between the characters, so it was really sad to see her killed off. I hope whoever they replace her with will be able to fill her shoes.
