Camping in Georgia; Petersburg Campground on Thurmond Lake…

I had forgotten that I didn’t finish up our visit to Augusta, Georgia!  We were there for nearly 3 weeks, and spent most of that time at the Petersburg Campground on Thurmond Lake, just nw of Augusta. It is a lovely campground, with big sites that all have flat yard areas 9 (pea gravel) with […]

days with our soldier at Cape May…

We had the best time with our soldier before he flew out!  The last day that we had him (Sunday), we went down to the Cape May Point State Park, which really wasn’t very far since we were an hour and 45 min south of the fort.It was chilly, and we drove around with bags […]

Work and rewards…

Time flies whether we are moving or not.  We have been playing in the water, which includes annoying little brothers ‘getting it’…Molly doing a ‘photo shoot’ for sister Hannah (R) while modeling Hannah’s hair bows…  She had a blast doing it, but her smiler was about wore out by the end! LOL!She was so excited about picking out a few […]

Helping out…

Last Wednesday we pulled out of the local fairground’s campground, and down to Dana’s sister’s place.  Every year they throw a big customer appreciation/company/4th of July party, and every year, our tribe helps them out with it.  It’s tradition, and we love the time together! This year, their family had built a huge machine shop/commercial […]

life at the stand, selling fireworks

Our fireworks stint is over half over for the year, but there are still an awful lot of explosives on these shelves! LOL!  We are hoping that we get super busy the next 3 days – what we don’t sell, we have to count, box up, and stick back in storage.  🙁  It’s the worst […]

This past weekend, we set up both of our 40′ firework stands.  The big boys (Greg, Jake, and Eli) shot 3-Gun on Saturday, where they took 3rd, 5th, and 6th in their class (something about open sights I think)!  🙂 Monday came, which meant everything that comes with firework season was suddenly upon us!  We picked […]

Our current adventure…

On Friday, we finished our last leg of the fast trip home. 1450 miles in 2 and a half days – not bad for us.  We never choose to move that far that fast, but we wanted to stay and volunteer in Moore for as long as possible. On the way home, we made lots […]

Leaving before the job is done…

3 weeks seemed like such a long time!  But it has flown by, and it’s time for us to put away the gloves and chainsaws (and Sharpie markers), and wrap up our time in Moore. The littles are going to miss all the frogs and toads they have been finding around here!On Tuesday, the littles and I […]

Today…

Just a quick note since I’m too tired to blog; besides, Beth already did it! LOL! The littles and I were without a vehicle today since Eli and Beth took the van to work with the clean up crew.  Vaughn, Jake, and Thomas, took the truck to return the skidsteer to the rental store, then caught […]

National Cowboy Museum, OKC…

We started out Father’s Day by getting ready to go to church… After church, we made a quick lunch, and then headed north for a special outing. A man at church had given us tickets to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum!!!  Enough tickets for our whole family (that is here anyway!)!!!  Just up our alley, […]
