Did It Myself

So, yesterday evening, after a long day at the house, we decided it would be good to go on a family walk. To "walk" off some of that energy the kids all had. We walked a few blocks, then went down the bike trail. A few more blocks got us to a little neighborhood park. My mom didn't want to stay long, so we started off again.

Here's my Dad and I (and Joe), just exiting the bike trail.

So when we finally got close to home, my dad saw this huge sand hill, and said to my oldest, Jake, I'll race you up! And off he went! Jacob was quick to follow - see them in the distance.

Well, thinking that it would be good fun for the other kids too, I told them that anyone who made the top would get a cookie (we'd made homemade oatmeal raisin cookies earlier that day at my aunts house). Well, they ALL wanted to go. So, I grabbed Jim's (the 2 year old) hand, and off we went, up the big hill. Wow, was it big.

This last stretch was really hard. I had to lift Jimmy up, step by step, because it was so steep and sandy. But, the view from the top was fabulous. My mom (who of course didn't want to play), took this up close pic of us. What a great zoom - ha! Jimmy was there too, he was just too short and blocked by the tree :)

What a fun adventure!!!

Today's WordArt comes from Lynn. Yep, she's the one who was quoted too! What a great saying :) I have a lot of photos that this would apply to! I'm sure you do too :)

Uh oh. This is really cute, except it it should read "THAN when they say" instead of "THEN when they say"....etc. My DH makes that mistake ALL the time.

Sorry to be a pest, but old English majors die hard, LOL!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your talent! I just went through ALL of your stuff (at the old site, too), and downloaded nearly everything! I love all the LDS stuff you've made, too. I am especially grateful for the "My Baptism Day" wordart you created, since my daughter was baptized last year, and I am thrilled to be able to use it when I get to that! Thank you again. You are beautiful inside and out. I enjoyed skimming through your posts, too. Your sense of humor and outlook on life gave me several good chuckles. Thanks again!

You don't change someone's English when they quote someone...otherwise it wouldn't be a "quote". lol

Looks like you had fun!

Ha! Good point, Sharon Kay! I was gonna go back and fix it the spelling mistake, but that is the way it was quoted. Ha! Now I don't have to fix it - hehehhe.
