Family Fun!

On Thursday morning I began to put our suitcase together. I gathered Makenzie's feeding stuff and loaded the car. Makenzie had speech therapy right before we left and I had a few things I needed to get from the store while she was in therapy. With the car loaded when I returned I loaded the boys and Makenzie into the car and we took off. I thought we would make it out of town before rush hour but I was wrong. We hit traffic, pouring rain, Makenzie got car sick which required pulling over on the side of the highway in order to assist her and hen change her clothes. At this point I am hot, tired of traffic and covered in vomit.

What should have taken an hour has now taken two. I glanced back and caught a glimpse of the base to Makenzie's wheel chair..... my heart sunk. I had left the second half... seat.... of her wheel chair at home 2 hours away. We happened to be in a little town so I pulled into the nearest parking lot to compose myself and gather my thoughts about what to do. The parking lot happened to be a Wal-Mart. My son piped in with the idea of getting her a stroller and I didn't have a better idea so we did.

AT this point we are late for dinner, I am frazzled, but there was no turning back now. Armed with a $170.00 travel system we forged up to our destination and had a wonderful time.

There was so much to do mixed in with just hanging out with family. We ate a ton, hiked, fished, went go karting, mini, golfing, bumper boating, shopping, we bbq'ed, we went swimming and shooting, we played cards,put our toes in the  river, sat by the fire for smores and lots of laughter, we had a GREAT time!

This morning we packed up and headed home. The ride home went much better. Then there was the unpacking, feeding, doing laundry and dishes, bathing, setting out the boy's clothes, and getting to bed for the first day of school in the morning!!! YIPPY!!!!!

Thank you for all of the prayers for safety! Now it is back to reality but I am looking forward to getting back on a schedule and am so excited about what this new school year will bring for all 4 of my kids! Please pray that my middle son specifically have a good first day of middle school! I think he is nervous even though he won't say so!

I will try to post a slide show with more pictures tomorrow. Tonight I am going to head to bed early so I can be ready to get these munchkins off to a great first day of school!

Believe Prayer works!
