GWL year 2

We made our annual trek to Great Wolf Lodge with our good friends The Naef's. Some of the highlights were...

-A 5 am phone call asking if we were missing a blonde headed little girl. She had left her room in the night and couldn't tell the front desk which room was hers. We checked. All of our kids were in bed but about 10 minutes later, we heard the knocks at our next door neighbors'. It took about 5 minutes to raise someone in their room. I think the girl made it back to her parents.

-Eric throwing up in the garbage can at the bottom of -not the howling tornado- but the "easy family ride". At least he didn't throw up on the ride!!-Brek really didn't like the water too much. He spent most of his time in this Ice Cream Truck and pretty much thought he owned the thing. The pic of him with the little girl is the only time I didn't see him sitting in the drivers' seat.

-All kinds of teenage stuff and quite of bit of tweeny stuff too
-Bode's solution to getting shoes on??
-All kinds of wild animals in and out of the water.
-Lots of fun in the wave pool-WARNING-sorry some of my shots have bikinis in the them!
-A downpour of rain on the way home and a traffic jam on I-90 while we passed about 10 miles of an army convoy. All the truckers had to get into the left lane which took a long time for everyone to get through.
-A government transportation PU parking right behind our van at a rest area? Don't ask me why unless they didn't want us to leave suddenly?? We were able to get out without hitting it-weird!!
All in all, we had a great time!! It is so much fun. There were more people there this year than last but it still wasn't packed. You didn't have to wait any kind of time to ride on any of the slides. Can't wait for next year!!

Teenage Boy

Why do boys do things like this? I have quite a few years until my boys are teenagers but look what happened at our house!! Are you thinking that maybe my teenager daughter and her friends have something to do with this?? Well, it wasn't any of them!!

Some boy completely destroyed our jack-o lanterns!! We had to hurry and get a few more carved so we would have some for Halloween!! I bet you were thinking it was Bode or Brek but you were wrong!! Here's the culprit!!

Trigger did this while we were at the football game!! DESTRUCTOE!!

Cub Scout and the Patch

Here are some pictures of Bode at the pumpkin patch with the cub scouts. No he isn't 8 yet and really shouldn't be going but when your mom is the leader--well, ya get to go!!

How much should we charge??

We have decided that we are going to start charging admissions to sit by us in church because all those around us and sitting on the stand are getting to see a FREE CIRCUS!!!

Good Quote

I received this quote from a good friend of mine and thought it explains our nation's current situation very well.
"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebosy else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." Adrian Rogers
Now do I think that we shouldn't share with those around us, absolutely not. Do I think that you should give what you can to can improve the lives of others, yes I do. I hope that our nation doesn't turn into everyone wanting something for nothing. We won't survive.

Lexi's VB

Lexi had some VB games this week. She did OK in the game against Royal City. Well, I think every ball she touched, she shanked one way or the other but at the service line, she scored 19 points in a row. Then on Thursday in her game against Warden she did considerably better, I think she only missed one ball and she serves 13 points in a row. Good job Lexi. It's nice to be able to practice! Just getting to practice makes you a better player. She's also excited because she's lost her summer 15, now that she's exercising.

Earthquakes and tsunamis

Bode was watching the news and he came and told me that there was an "earthclake and a salami" not in the same place though.
