4th of July 2009

We have some great friends who have invited us to go camping with them every year, since we moved here. It has become a fun tradition. (Can I call it that when we missed last year?) :)

They have a lot of fun activities to keep the kiddos busy. And with all the families - a lot of kiddos to keep busy! The rope swing is probably the biggest hit, followed closely by the trampoline and plentiful big sticks!

All the kids had a lot of fun. Quincey had a blast hanging out with this crew!
Thanks to the T-family (you like my blog world name for you all?) We had a blast and look forward to next year!! :) Here's a video of Quincey and Luke playing Uno, while breakfast was being cooked!

A little early for heart attacks like this!

Yesterday we were at Grandma's house and I was talking to Grandma but left the car running. Emma (bless her heart - grr) got in the front seat (when will I learn to keep one eye on her at ALL times?) and proceeded to rev the engine by stomping down on the gas pedal all the way!

Freaked me out with my car whining with all those RPM's! So, I explained to her how dangerous that was and why I tell her not to get in the front seat with all the buttons. Of course she was "So, so, so sorry!" - with her professional grade tears. (If I actually thought an actresses life wasn't destined for misery, I might actually push her that direction! She is like the most fabulous little actress!)

Then Emma says, "Tyler's drived a car." (tattle tale voice)

Me: Oh, yeah? Whose car? (skeptically)

Tyler: Seth's mom's.

Me: When? (still skeptically)

Tyler: At nighttime at Seth's house.

Me: Who was with you and where were you driving?(a little less skeptically)

Tyler: Just me and Seth down his road.

Me: Where was his mom and dad (trying to hide the panic!)? All these answers came so matter of factly without any hesitation. He was REALLY starting to freak me out! Forget the freaking out from Emma's little stunt!
