white trash swimmen pooool

This is what we call swimming in Arkansas. A paper cup and the big ole yellow sprinkler!!

The kids dont mind how you get wet as long as they are getting wet

Paige loves to swim in this here pool or the cement pond!
She has learned that her brothers have no mercy on her, so why have any on them

Regan wasnt sure that he really wanted to play in this here pool
But he finally warmed up and joined the fun

This here is what we call the slip and slide

Or maybe the diving board, depending if your jumpin or slidin

But what we found it best used for was the washing of dishes. So if you need any advise on how we do things here in Arkansas please feel free to call, we do come up with some real good ideas. We be livin in the big city..

A day with Paige

Ok... for you that don't believe me about my dear little Paige being into everything let me tell you about my day...
I had a million things to do today, so I gave Paige some marshmallows while I finished getting dressed. So I came into the kitchen when I was done and I saw the chair next to the counter and marshmallows everywhere. When I got closer I thought I was going to die. My kitchen counter where my heart medication is - was full of the marshmallows, including inside my pill box. So I started the search for the 4 pills that were in there.... I was only able to find 2 of them, I had no idea what had happened to the others. So I called the pharmacy and they told me that I would need to call poison control. They told me because of her size I needed to take her to the ER or the Dr office, but that she would need to drink charcoal to get the pills out of her system. They said it was better to be safe than sorry. So I called the Dr's office and they don't have the charcoal there. So off I went to the ER. I called Kevin at work and he met me there. They told us that they wanted to give her the charcoal and start an IV just in case. At that point her blood pressure and heart beat were borderline low. They told us at that point if it went up she was good, and if it went down anymore then they would take her to children's hospital. They gave her the charcoal, it was terrible! She wouldn't drink it! There was about 8-10 oz that they needed her to drink, so we forced it down her she had it going everywhere. She spit it all over Kevin and wasn't fun. Needless to say, after she settled down and relaxed, she was 110% better. She was up running and playing. I was so excited to see her that way. At this point we will never know if she took the pill or not but I'm glad to have my baby girl with me.

I shed many tears today and it wasn't all bad. It really made me stop and take a moment to think about each one of my children, and what a privilege it is to be a mom and to teach these wonderful children. Go hug your children and cherish the moments you have with them. Remember when they are talking your ear off or wanting to play those video games for the hundredth time - that they are just children and they are children of our heavenly father and we are here to love them and teach them. I wanted to say thank you to those who said prayers on our behalf - you are wonderful and forever will be in our prayers.

A week in Dallas

Braydin's Dallas trip

Trip to Dallas
I will tell you 10 things about Dallas. We stayed in the Gaylord Hotel. I got to look for Freddy the fire fly. The hotel was just like a mall. The pool had 5 waterfalls in it. We got to go to T.G.I Friday. Me, Mom, Regan, Paige got ice cream. Are room was small but it was fun. At Buca Di Beppo we got to eat in the kitchen. At the California Pizza kitchen my dad did not eat because he had a "Party". That is what I did in Dallas.


What is the story about?
What was 2 of the places to eat in Dallas out of the story?
