It's That Time of Year Again...

Father and Son Campout!! It occurred to me today how excited everyone at our house gets for this weekend. Willie loves to camp and be outdoors, especially with the boys. The boys love anything Willie loves. They were particularly looking forward to marshmallows and fire.I love being able to stay at home and spend time with this little fella! It is unreal how quiet our house is right now. Petey and I got to spend some quality time together tonight and I'm really living it up by watching a chick flick typing transcriptions!

Father and Son of the many perks to being the mother of sons.

I Saw the Sign

On a long drive home from Las Vegas a couple weeks ago Jake and Josh declared they needed to use the restroom. I rolled my eyes because we were entirely surrounded by desert and they knew it. Willie pulled over to the side of the road and let them out to do their business.

Josh hopped out quickly but Jake flatly refused. I asked what the problem was and he said, “That sign says we’re not allowed to.” Entirely puzzled, I turned around to see a ‘no parking’ sign.

Proud of his reading abilities and obedience, Jake very seriously exclaimed, “See, the sign says, ‘No, Peeing'!"

I couldn't help laughing out loud. It's certainly never dull around here...even on long road trips!

Strength in Trials

I just watched this video about Stephanie Nielson, who survived a plane crash, and was very touched. I am amazed at the things people go through. It sure puts my trials into perspective and I gain strength from the inspiring strength of others. I have heard bits and pieces of her story and just maybe I'll have to check out her blog now, too.
