Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

A Funny Find...

We found these funny glasses at the store today! They had fun drinking out of them except when I had them share a cup so I could take a pic of them to post, they kept moving too far apart and the straws would come out of the cup and spill all over each other :0)

Homemade Soda Pop, Reunion Pic, & Christmas in July!

When we were at the reunion we made homemade rootbeer and it was so fun! So, of course when we got home we had to mix it up a bit! We made Cream Soda on Tuesday night & it was SO YUMMY! It looks so cool with the dry ice so we decided to make it in a clear container. I snapped some pics and they aren't that great, but it still looks pretty cool!

Here is a close up of the dry ice "doin' it's thang!"

Here is a pic of all of us after the softball game at the reunion! Too fun, this is only 1/2 of the family~ It is crazy huge! I hijacked this off my cousins blog as I am waiting on pics, lol! :0)

Us LemonLimer's are having a launch this week "Christmas in July". I plan on making a few designs so stay tuned, is my 1st one...Santa on Holiday! For all my sweet friends who celebrate xmas with Sand instead of Snow ;0) I hope you like them!

We're home! It is great to be home minus the laundry, unpacking, etc...We had such a wonderful time. I just read a few blurbs from my cousins blog and found myself crying. It was so great to see everyone, some cousins weren't even born the last time I saw them & now they are in high school!! CRAZY! 3 of my cousins at the reunion grew up around the corner so it was so great to reconnect with them & man I didn't realize how much I missed them. We all have kiddos now and it was a blast. Great food, great fun, great conversations! I LOVED it all (well except climbing the hills from our campsite in almost 7000 ft. elevation) That wasn't my favorite, but hey, it was conditioning for P90-X which we are starting this week right! :) Anyway, I have a launch to list from with my LL peeps, a charity launch later in the week, and a few customs to whip out. I'll be posting about the reunion later in the week. I have to get pics from everyone else because I was a BIG LOSER and my camera sat in the car the entire week. I got NO PICS. I will get some pics together & post soon. :0) Stay Tuned.

New Bows & A Lil' Vacay!

We are traveling to a family reunion for my "other" Mom's side of the fam. I wanted to post now as I am not sure I will have a connection when we get to the camp site. I will post all kinds of pics when we return. The kids are beyond excited! Here are 3 new sets that started today! Thanks for peeking!

Waterpark Fun!

Last week I took the kids to one of our many waterparks (there are 6 within 25 min of my house not including the Croc Center and the Y)! This one is 5 min. from our house and is indoors. It is at a place called Triple Play. They have several activities: Bowling, Indoor WaterPark, Mini Golf, Slick Track, Lazer Tag, Rock Climb, and a ton of games! It also has an attached hotel so if you stay there you can just go through the tunnel over to all the activities! This time the kids just played in the water and played a few games! They had a blast & it was so dead in there, probably only 45 people in the whole waterpark, then towards the end, there was only about 20. I took a pic of the wavepool towards the end & my kids were the only ones in there! They never had to wait in line for the slides at all! It was great! Another cure for boredom? Let's hope so!

PS~ Sorry for the pic overload, I sat there for 5 hours while they played, so I was BORED! :0) Ohhh...that word!

The Name of the Water Park is "Raptor Reef" this is over the wave pool!

Fun in the wave pool and the spa. The spa is 1/2 indoors & 1/2 out! This is such a "cool" thing to my kids :) Lovin' their goggles, lol! I think the lifeguards were bored too with it being so slow, they were super nice to the kids and talked/played with them the whole day!

The waterslides swirl in and out of the building, so weird looking from the outside. They raced through the red tubes! Their favorite one to which they affectionately call the "toilet bowl" is actually like a whirlpool and you swirl around until it sucks your tube down the center.

There is a play structure with 2 smaller slides for the smaller kiddos! It has a huge bucket that refills and dumps all over everyone!

Here they are anxiously awaiting their fate!

Time for a snack break and some gaming :) Don't judge me, NO, I didn't make them get dressed 1st, they wanted to go back to the waterpark which was just a door away and I was too lazy to make them change twice. The older I get, the more I care about those precious smiles below and less about what those think around me. Plus, it was hilarious to see them running around with the goggles on their foreheads! MEAN Momma!

The 2nd pic cracked below me up, Haliee so elated at her "BIG" Win!

After what seemed like an are the tickets won!

Then the redemption...the prize counter to which we must always loiter for atleast 1/2 an hour regardless of our total ticket count! And finally..."The Booty" wonderful quality prizes so worth their $ right? Of course! Haliee got Hal a tie clip as part of her prizes. Why they have tie clips as prizes one will never know. I am sure this is Mecca for white collar workers who frequent arcades, lol! Interesting...
