Family Time!


I always spend lots of time prepping for our annual summer vacation...making lists, running to Target, making another list, running to WalMart....and still end up staying up late the night before we leave packing. It's a continuous hustle until we unload at our beach house and then.....it happens....life just stops. The question for the whole week is beach or pool? Pool or beach? It really is nice to be so relaxed. Now, let me remind you that there are 17 people in this house...8 adults and 9 kids ranging from 15 mos. to 15 y.o., so the term "relaxed" is relative to the adult to kid ratio. Still, it is fun to see all the cousins spending this time together. I wouldn't trade this for anything....

My New Toy

Well, we did it. We made a decision after much deliberation (i.e. procrastination) and bought ourselves iPhones. It is exactly what my sister said it is....a nifty toy with a phone. Do you know how many apps there are to download? A bazillion! I've already filled up a page...facebook, ebay, Cooking Mama, Tap Tap Revenge, and the Bible are just some of them. Of course, Thad filled his up with the fart machine, gun app, and who knows what else. Check out this though....one of the cool things you can do with it.

We love to watch Maggie move (especially to Lynyrd Skynyrd)! Love the ending!
