bloomin' onions in the dark

(EAT we did. bloomin' onions and such at outback steakhouse. it was kinda dark in there.)

(sometimes pictures from the phone aren't so great quality but it's still good to share the memories)


(it's been rainy. and foggy. but that just means that we get to splash through the puddles like professional boggers. that's just how we roll.)

Thank you again for that Leibster award, I LOVE it, I have it up on my blog!!!

Liz Brown said...

Haha. One of my brothers can quote all of Prince Caspian too. I liked it ... but not THAT much ... sometimes I'm all, there are other movies besides PC, did you know that bro? :)

I think I saw Facing the Giants, but just Saturday I saw Courageous. Someone said they were made by the same company. I thought it was pretty good.

Love the bogging and duct tape swing! Made me giggle! Love learning about you, as always. Homeschool--so cool! I'd do that if I had kids.

Thanks for tagging me Memory I will try to put up a post as soon as can. It's interesting to know that you were homeschooled. I thought of home schooling my kids but was not disciplined enough. I admire your mom for her commitment and dedication.

I love how random this post is, and I can't believe you get up so early. I'm definitely a night owl. Well, not lately.

It warms my heart to no end that you would like to sit at a table with Papa. Oh, how proud he would be of you! You are similar to him in many ways...quiet, thoughtful, serving. One of his greatest qualities was service. I can only imagine his delight to serve the King of Kings for all eternity.
