More fun on a 4-wheeler!

The big boys got a 4-wheeler over the weekend. Mom was gone running the river to river race, so we thought we'd surprise her. Surprise! We had actually been looking for awhile and couldn't find a good used one. We finally bought a new one from Webster Ford. The boys have rode and rode and rode that thing. And, they have been really good about taking turns. It's already getting a little dangerous around here with them zipping around the house and barn. Any guesses on who had the first accident?

Air Evac

Thank you to Air Evac Lifeteam. Last weekend, they flew into the landing zone at Frank Ayers' to talk to the Cub Scout Pack 67. This was a really fun event. The pilot and medical techs were very nice. They talked to the boys and let them check out all the cool equipment and controls. The boys had lots of questions and they did their best to explain them all. It was really neat to watch them land and takeoff out there. For more information, visit their web-site at This really is a good deal. Check out the pictures of the boys...

Ross got a big one!

We've been fishing our pond the last couple days and done quite well. Yesterday, the boys caught a dozen bluegill and two crappie. Today, Ross caught this big bass and three smaller ones. Yeah, Ross!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

ROADIE: The road crew (or roadies) are the technicians who travel with a band on tour, usually in sleeper buses, and handle every part of the concert productions except actually performing the music with the musicians. This catch-all term covers tour managers, production managers, stage managers, front of house and monitor engineers, guitar techs, bass techs, drum techs, keyboard techs, lighting techs, pyrotechnic techs, security/bodyguards, and caterers, among others.

The above definition is what we thought was a Roadie. At least in our house. However, our beloved sister-in-law, Ashley, thought a Roadie was an alcoholic beverage consumed in a car. Given her definition, this would have raised some eyebrows last week at Church when Larry Quick said he needed a Roadie during one of the songs. This sitution would have also raised an eyebrow or two with Amber's definition. Ashley just has a different set of vocabulary words that we assume come from growing up in Nebraska. We find her adorable and can't help but love her like a special needs child. Anyway, we are trying to keep track of these "Ashley-isms" for our tell-all book. If you have any, please post your comments below.

Funny face or normal for Ross?

I was taking the pictures off our camera and sending them to Wal-mart when I noticed that Ross doesn't have a normal expression. In every single picture, he makes a different funny face. I am not even sure he has a normal face. If he does, I don't have any pictures of it. When we get family pictures taken, he is harder on my patience than Luke!
