Inward Joy

So a couple of days ago I took my family to the Mall of America. It was awesome. My two boys, Ethan (6) and Kaden (4) are at the age now where they can enjoy the rides and all the attractions of Nickelodeon World. It was hilarious to watch them drive the bumper cars. They would drive around bump into each other, laugh until they almost cried, and when the ride came to a finish they would run around and get in line again. I watched this happen 15 times in a row. We would make the rounds, but always ended up back at the bumper cars. The coolest thing about the whole trip was the Joy that our family had just being together and taking time to really not do a whole lot but hang out. Priorities are one of life's great battles. I will tell you one thing I know first hand, "When your priorities are correct, life just keeps getting more fun." Maybe today is time to take a look at some priorities in your own life and either pat yourself on the back, or take time to re - prioritize some things.

The Day Off

So my family and I took today and dedicated it as a compete day off. We started off by waking up (obviously) and then proceeding down the road to monticello to deposit my check. Is it me or are the gas prices just robbing us of pay checks?? Then after that we went to Home Depot. The lights in my bathroom have been burnt out for a month, and we were all getting a little tired of not being able to see when we did our hair or brushed our teeth. Not to mention it is really tough to shave in the dark, thus, my ugly face. Anyways after that we went albertville and let the kids play in the Burger King Play Land. Kaden not a fan. Ethan Big Fan! Then we shopped until our kids fell over and came home. I played war outside for like 2 hours. Wow what an awesome day it was. Now it's off to some brainstorming and relaxation. So thanks for reading and I hope that your day was as awesome as mine. Later
