Duck n' Donuts

One of Sam's favorite Saturday morning activities to do with Porter and Carter is to take them to the duck pond and then out for donuts. The first time we took Carter to feed the ducks he had a piece of bread in his hand and when a duck greedily took the whole piece, Carter smacked the duck right across the face with his other hand. (For those of you who don't know Carter very well he is extremely possesive when it comes to food.) Anyway, I'm not quite sure if the boys enjoy the ducks or the donuts more, but as for Sam (the littlest kid at heart), I know that he loves feeding those ducks!

Slip Sliding Away

Of the four of us, who looks the most scared? Me. I know.

Porter warming up after the fun!

For those of you who may not know, Sam's calling in church right now is as the 11 year old scout leader. Well about a month ago, while the weather was nice and hot, Sam set up an orienteering activity for the scouts. After navigating correctly they came to a cooler with ice blocks inside and they went ice blocking. I guess they all had a great time, but Sam felt that one element was missing...rain! So,last Saturday after it had been raining, Sam thought it would be an even better time to go so that we could pick up alittle extra speed going down the hills. We had a great time and the boys couldn't get enough of it.

Why am I doing this???

So my niece Abby somehow talked me into the whole "blogging" thing. Although I have been enjoying many different blogs for the last few months I swore I would never start one of my own--but since when do I stick to my guns?
Honestly, I am excited to share our greatest moments with friends and family who care to see but secretly this is my motivation to take more pictures of our family and do a little journaling. Wait--that kinda sounds like scrapbooking and we all know how well that has worked out for me in the past! Oh well, I'll just have to see where this post leads, it could be one of many or might just be my one and only.
