|Make a slideshow - it's easy!|
This weekend we went on our first camping trip with the boys, along with our friends Jennfier, Dave and Lucas. Lake Mineral Wells was our destination - perfect for camping and hiking (mountain biking too). There was no doubt in my mind the boys were going to LOVE it.
Our campsite was right on the water with lots of room for the boys to run around. I could type forever about the fun we had so I will bullet the hilights:
- hiking - Ethan was bounding up and down the rocks
- camp food - YUMMY!
- chillin' with friends - bonus
- relaxing in God's beautiful nature
Funny thing, Paul even had me pegged for a "non" outdoorsy gal. Guess everyone has a thing or 2 to learn about me. I truly enjoyed myself and was able to relax.
One last blurb: My kids do not like s'mores. So funny, Ethan said roasted marshmellow were disgusting and had me take them off. So chocolate and graham crackers for them.

Today I turned 35!
For my bday, I wanted to hang out as a family and do something the boys would like. Btw, Paul took the day off. How sweet! First, my friend Ginny kept the boys for a few hours this morning, while Paul and I had coffee and shopped a little. I got a new Blackberry Curve...woo-hoo. We picked up the boys, ate lunch, then went bowling. So much fun. We were going to picnic, but the weather did not allow. I am sad to report that Ethan had a better score than I did, of course, I did not get to use the bumpers!!!
We came home, rested for a few, then ordered pizza. While Paul was getting the pizza I let the boys stomp around in the rain puddles. No better joy for a little boy. They were soaking wet, so I just let them eat in their skivvies. The best for last...chocolate cake.
I really could not have asked for a better birthday. A day with all 3 of my guys!
p.s. after putting the kids to bed, we are watching as many episodes of Lost Season 3 as we can stay awake for!!!
***tidbit info*** figures Paul would take bowling in college

The first clip is how well we have trained the boys in front of a camera...I could not get a candid shot. So I gave up and left it with Paul, and he got a few more good ones. I'll only put one more, to spare you!
