Back from GA...PICS!

hey all! we're back from georgia...actually we got back monday night. we had a great time getting to see all the family. we went and did laser tag, go carts and games the night we got there. saturday we went to a park there called Cheehaw...and they had a frontier days thing going on so we walked around there then let the kids play at the park. it was a really fun day. we went back to frank's aunt and uncles place after that and cooked out and just hung around. sunday we got up and went to a little stand that has all sorts of jellies, candies, and things like that. then we took the kids over to his moms house and met up w/ his sisters there to tell them all goodbye since they all had to go to work monday. we headed back to his aunts and had a big ham dinner. we sat around and visited for a while...then we headed to bed for the long trip home monday morning. got up monday morning and headed back around 9am and instead of walking around universal we decided we'd stop in some little towns and look around at all the old houses and buildings. it was a really nice time and it was great to just take our time getting back. anyways...that's about it! here are some pics from the trip. most of them are from cheehaw, and then just some places that we stopped. the place w/ the orange hot dog sign is the place frank's dad used to work in thomasville. he went in to get a hot dog and there was a guy there that knew his dad and actually knew frank but hadn't seen him since he was a baby. kinda crazy!! the brick building is a tiny little police station in a town we stopped in...i thought it was neat! the rest are pretty self explanitory. lol

a little update!

hey all! just checking in for a sec and thought i'd drop a few lines! just getting some laundry done and kinda getting things ready for our trip thurs...well actually friday. we're leaving in the early it'll still feel like thurs to me. i don't usually sleep well before we leave, or in the car. needless to say i'll be pooped by the time we get there. but, his aunt usually keeps the kids entertained for a few while we take a little siesta. lol anywho...that's about all that's going on right now.

we went to the mall earlier to get frank a pair of jeans for the trip...but only found some for me...and i got a haircut. yay! i needed one so bad. it was just getting to that weird stage where it started flipping out and acting stupid. so, i'm glad to have that done for a while. it seemed to last a while last she must've thinned it really well!! the kids were pretty crazy and got into some trouble though...but i think they were just really tired from school being back in now. i hate when they get in trouble...although i was kinda glad that they did it to frank for once and not me so he can see what i go through when i take them places alone ALL the time! lol we got home and finished up homework, read a story and got all snuggled in and now they're fast asleep...well they have been for about an hour.

OH i'm putting up some pics from yesterday. jordyn got home from school and went outside to play. she went to the treehouse and came running back in and wanted me to come out and see the 'dead butterfly'. lol so, i did. this is what we'll see that he's far from dead and just trying to wiggle outta his cocoon...which i thought was really cool!! he happened to still be there when tristan got out of he got to see it, too! we checked on him one last time at about 4pm yesterday and then didn't check it again until this afternoon...and i really expected him to be gone. but, nope! we went out there at about 3pm today and he was STILL there...flapping...but going nowhere. so, w/ a little further examination i could see that his 'tail' was stuck to the cocoon!! so i carefully put my finger under him and he held on w/ his feet and i gently pulled him off and away he flew!! jordyn thought it was really neat to see him fly away finally. i thought the whole thing was pretty cool.'s a couple pics of the butterfly...and then of jordyn swinging. i didn't get any of tristan since he was at school...but hopefully i'll have lotsa new pics when we get home from our trip!

so, that's about it for now! love you all!
