When we sit down as a family and look back through these pictures I hope the kids have fond memories of their childhood. I am glad that I am only capturing still, silent images. Our life seems so much more serene when looking from the outside. You don't see how I found the picinic basket a week later in the van and how the sandwiches smelt after seven days in a hot vehicle.
Or the trip out to Gull Lake with about a million, " He's touching me! He's looking at me. She punched me. " Not to mention that I had to drag the teenager kicking and screaming away from his video games. I think they have become his new umbilcal cord as he seems to need to be attached to them to survive. The worst part is he can outlast us so last night I flipped the light to the basement and said, "Bed, Now! No more video games" Then I prompty went to bed and fell asleep until at 2 am when he snuck into our room to get the dog to sleep with. What an awful criminal he is. If you are going to stay up 3 hours past bedtime don't come and wake me up! Arggggg.
We love to go meet Dad for lunch. This is the Gull Lake Park. It was beautiful.
The Penny Carnival to wrap up the Play Park Program. It was raining so they held it indoors. I forgot my purse so we had to dig in the change cup of the van to scrounge together enough sticky coins to play the games.
Lost and lonely!
