pics from knoebel's amusement park

last week i promised you some pics from our trip to knoebel's amusement park, in elysburg, pa.  so here's one, and to see more, just click on the "keep reading" link. 

jack in the ball pit.  couldn't help but wonder how long it had been since those balls were disinfected.  still, he loved it.  :)

cade thoroughly enjoyed this candy apple.  this looks like it should be an advertisement for knoebels!

knoebel's has a pool and waterslides and all of that stuff, so one day we just do that part of it, and the kids really seem to love it.  apparently, jackson likes the taste of chlorine.  hey, after swimming around in multi-colored balls covered in bacteria from urine and God knows what else, you get thirsty!

cade became very attached to his map, and wanted to look at it all the time.  he also loved riding rides and became notorious for reaching into my pocket and stealing ride tickets. 

we got to ride the ferris wheel together, and while jack was a bit nervous about it to begin with, they both ended up loving it and wanted to ride it again!  we had a great time at the amusement park, and can't wait to go back again sometime soon (we only live 20 minutes away, now!).

Loved the pics. You should submit the one of Cade to Knoebels for their ads!

Looks like you all had a great time - those colored balls - who knows what goes on in there :(. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only "germophob" who thinks that about those ball pits...

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
