The Greats and A Pinic

On Tuesday we met up with the Greats and went up to Mud Mt. to have a picnic!  Excitement!  The day was iffy but we braved it anyway and I'm glad we did. We sat down for lunch and you would have thought I starved the kids before we came.  I'm glad Great Grandma brought enough hot dogs...the boys ate 2 a piece along with everything else.  Sometimes they are shocking to be around when it comes to food.

We are sitting down to a fine meal, thank you Great Grandma

HA! I looked at the picture above and I'm actually opening a box of Cracker Jacks that was for dessert...HERE we are getting ready for lunch.

Ian letting Great Grandpa take his picture.

This is probably my favorite picture of the day.  A few years ago we met at a park for a picnic and went for a walk with Great Grandpa...on that one I got pictures of each of the boys walking with him.  I now have one with Eli and Great Grandpa.  Makes my throat catch!

My next favorite picture of the day.  Last October the extended family had their pics taken by a gal (suppose to be professional...I will disagree with it). All the important pics I wrote down (so not to forget) were either not good or just weren't there.  Two hours of pic and hundreds and none turned out...oh I can't bring that up...I can feel steam building up and ready to blow.  ANYWAY, this was one of those pictures...I wanted a picture with my kids and their Greats.  So, 10 months later I have it.  Not a *professional* one but one none-the-less.

So here are Grandma Great, Grandpa Great, and my boys.

I LOVE it!!

It really was a good day and I'm glad it all worked out!

Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
