The rains came down and the floods came up

Well it has been raining all night and now all day. The kids have their choice of a natural pool in the frontyard or the backyard. AS for me right now we are having a quiet moment which is oh so enjoyable every once in a while.
Ok I need to update on a couple of funnies. I am still finding my way around this blog site and hopefully figure it out and make it more like we want it, but until then I will still write here and there(:
Last weekend we did some family activities. Friday we went for a little hike with the kids. It was pretty sunny while driving so Josh put on some sunglasses. Well that got all the kids wanting to have some sun glasses since daddy had some. While trying to get everyone calmed down, we hear from the backseat "My eyes are burning". Josh and I started laughing so hard. Seth in his attempt to get sun glasses thought this would do the trick. Low and behold it didnt but we had a great laugh out of it.
Saturday we went to one of Texas's many State parks for another family hike. We have started with the kids to play a question game called McWiz JR. So while we drove we ask them questions and teach them the answers they dont know. I share this cause it leads into the next funny. We asked Emma "what is the eleventh month?" Josh gave Emma the clue that we are in the tenth month and it is October, then Adam piped in it began with the letter "N". So Emma answered firmly that it was Noctober(: Kids do say the darndest things. Never a dull moment in and out of our house.
Well I hope you enjoyed the long and funny of it as much as we did. I will do my best to keep this site up and rolling with our adventures, crazies and whatever comes our way.
Take care, God bless and have a super duper day(:

Hi Holly! How are you?! I am so glad I came across your blog. Your family is so cute! Do I see that you have 5 kids? Wow- you are Wonderwoman! Hopefully we can get back and keep in touch now. (blogs are way better than facebook!)
Take care,

I have always been impressed that you (Josh and Holly) have been doing "family things" - going places together: parks, trips, etc. That's one element of great parenting.
