       Aftermath of Battlerama

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Just got back from a week of kids camp and teen camp and it was amazing! I love watching all of the kids young and teens, seeking the face of God. Such a special time in their lives and mine. I thank God I can be a part of this even though I am old. My part in camp is to cook and I love it. And I had so much help this year from several of the adults from our church, guys and gal a like. They are terrific! From Sunday through the following Monday we went practically non-stop with activities such as swimming, volleyball, wild and crazy games, softball, camp fires AND the best part for me was getting to spend SO much time with Noah and Jonah. In fact at one time my entire family except for Josh was there. That hasn't happened I guess since the kids were all really small. I love it. We also have an activity called Battlerama. This is where there are about 4-6 teams that throw paint, flour, food we have leftover from all week at camp and water at others while trying to see who gets the most tennis balls that were in the middle of the field. Wow! I would never do this but the kids love it. I will be posting pictures of this amazing event very soon.

West End Park

Last night for family night we went to the West End Park in downtown. It's a fun little park to go too. We rode the carousel with the boys but not the horses at first. Noah, Jonah and I rode in a little carriage I guess is what you would call it on the carousel waving to Papa. After two rides in that, Noah decided he did want to ride one of the horses. I think it kind of scared him at first but then he really loved it. Kacee and Jamie drove up and Noah started waving to them hollering "Hey Mom, hey Dad". He is talking so big and it is so cute. I love hearing him talk. There is also a diner there that is inside a small passenger railway car, the Boomerang Cafe. So when Kacee and Jamie got there we went inside to eat. The food is really good and the atmosphere is retro. I think Jonah enjoyed the ice cream the best. Just give him some sugar and he is good to go. After we ate, we were going to ride the carousel again but it was broken down so.....Noah talked his dad into riding the ferris wheel.
That thing goes fast!

This little park is a place that I know we will be going to again.

Coming up on 200!!! And a giveaway!

I am coming up on my 200th post so to celebrate I am having a giveaway! I love giveaways. they are so fun. So...for this giveaway I have a Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch package pictured above just for waiting for you. All you have to do is leave a comment about what you are looking forward to this summer. For a second chance to win, become a follower of my blog. I have tried these and they really do taste like crunchy brownies. I love them and the little to-go cups are awesome. They come apart and you freeze the bottom part so when you put your milk in there it stays cold. And it really does. So great for our busy families. So come on and enter. This will be open until Monday June 13th and I will announce a winner on Tuesday.
