A camping we will go......

OK so the kids have been wanting to go camping here is how it all unfolded:

Last Friday it poured rain all day, Saturday David had to work but would be off Monday. His big idea hey lets go somewhere close Sunday right after church and we will come back Monday afternoon. OK sounds like a great idea. Well you all know how hard it is to get ready for church with kids anyways, not to mention trying to make sure you have everything for a camping trip, hooking up a trailer and still being late for church no matter how early you get up
Well we made it. We went to Cages Bend in Gallatin a beautiful place. WE had a spot right on the lake and a great view. My mom and dad hung out with us that afternoon and then took Bella home with them.
Let the fun begin..... ha yeah well at 7:00 pm Bryson started throwing up. Yeah right whats worse than having a kid puke while camping... not bad you say well he threw up 2 more times and then went to bed. We thought OK if he will sleep we will stay. We went to be about 11:00 and Bryson threw up once more when we went to bed but went back to sleep. At this point we are sleepy and just think we well will try to stay. Well guess what at 12:00 Bailee wakes up throwing up. Yeah for us right well she gets it all over her pillow and she no longer stops and bryson starts again. I look at David and I say WE ARE GOING HOME. He agrees, throws the tent not neatly folded into the trailer, and accidentally throws away bailee's nice jacket, PJ's and brand new long johns away thinking it was trash but not realizing this until we are in Madison 10 minutes from home UGGGH!! What a time right. Well we get home about 1:45 am get the kids to bed after they puke one more time and get some sleep.

Monday we throw the tent up disinfect it, do like 6 loads of laundry and pick up Bella from my moms house. Sounds OK right.... NOT at 10:30 Monday night guess what? I start puking, and then guess what at 12:30 David starts puking. Oh my can I take much more???

Anyways we rested all day Tuesday felt human again by Wednesday which was my 28th birthday where we ran all day doing errands that had been neglected for 2 days, took bella to the doctor because of an ear infection ugh do we ever stop? Today is super busy being Halloween and all the kids are hiper as if they have already had a full IV of pure sugar. I think the only way to survive is to have one of the sugar IV's myself. :)

SO there you have it another interesting story from our family. I did get some great pics before all the craziness happened. Happy Halloween everyone. :)

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday almost a week ago we went to a local church pumpkin patch. I really wanted the kids to go to a farm pumpkin patch but it just wasnt working out for time sake. But the kids enjoyed the one we went to and I got a few pics. Enjoy.

World Series, Mid-life crisis, and MOHAWKS

Well you all know how much my dad LOVES Florida sports teams, and it just so happens that the Tampa Bay Rays won their 4th game last night which bought them a ticket to the World Series 2008.

My dad had already said that if they went to the World Series he was going to get a MOHAWK. Now the reason is because if you have seen most of the players including the coach has a RAY HAWK. :)

Well David and his part time barber skills gave him his Mohawk. Now I for one thought he did a good job and that the Mohawk doesn't look bad. My mom on the other hand said she will not be seen in public with him :) We were telling him to spike it up too on the top she told us to stop encouraging my dad and be on her side but that would not be too fun. WE also told him for Halloween he should color the Mohawk blue. :)
Enjoy the pics I just had to share. :)

THanks Rob for all your leadership that you gave us at Riverside. I also love reading your blog, its nice to know that I am not the only one that has spiritual struggles.

Pass on the blog love award. :)

Cool Air, campfire's, and SMORE's

Whats better than that? Friday night it was so cool outside and so as a family we built a bonfire and roasted marshmellows, made smore's and had some good ole fashion family time.

The kids really want to go camping which we are going to do next weekend, but we thought doing one of the fun things about camping before we go would be a treat for the kids. If it involves chocolate and marshmellows they are all in. :)

Now the only thing is they want to do it everynight now. :) Bella even got in on the action, she loved the graham crackers and she did try a marshmellow but didnt like the texture.

Enjoy the pictures.

OK so all I can say is im worn out. Things have been really crazy around here. Every monday we have Music at 9:30 for Bryson and Bailee has dance that night at 6:00. Not to mention we have to go grocery shopping, go to the bank, post office, and anything else needing to be done for the day.

Tuesday is school enough said.

Wednesday the library or the playground

Thursday School enough said

Friday: Oh friday I know your wondering why im boring you with my weekly schedule, here's why: You see on Friday we always have this idea of going off. Usually to grab a bite of lunch, walmart, nana's house. Just whatever we decide for the day.

Well when we go to Walmart it is always such an ordeal. We are usually there forever because we have to look at cloths, toys, and then get what we came for in the 1st place. Well Friday a week ago Bryson just insisted the I need dish washing liquid, when I didnt and he tried to throw it over in the buggy well guess what happened? It landed hard in the floor breaking it and spilling Palmolive out everywhere. I was not a happy mom at that moment.

That brings us to this past friday the 10th. After running a lot of errands we stopped in at Burger King for lunch, school was out the place was packed. I put Bella in the highchair and proceded to get Bailee and Bryson's lunch out when all of a sudden Bella flips herself out of her highchair hits her head on the table and i grab her moments before she hits the hard floor. WHEWWWWWWW!!!!!!! I felt like the worst mom ever there was. She is so fast and in to everything. She thinks she can eat anything and everything that we eat. She so far has had broccoli, green beans, ritz crackers, yogurt. All with 2 teeth. Im just so thankful that she was not hurt, she cried for a few minutes and was just wanting her food. Go figure. She did have a bump on her forhead for a short time but was gone before we even got home. Its just crazy. I honestly do not know how people with more than 3 kids handle it. Oh and I forgot last sunday we went to the Circus, it was the kids 1st time, they loved it and we had such a great time.

Ok im done boring you with my crazy life.
