Quick updates

The 29th is right around the corner so my "countdown to 30" installment for August will be here soon...be excited!

In the meantime here are a couple of quick snippets-

1) We went to a family reunion this weekend. The reunion part was so much fun and you should definitely check out pictures on Aimee's blog. The roadtrip part was not so fun. We made the 6 hour trip down on Friday and back on Saturday. Wouldn't have been so bad except for an oil spill and a bad wreck delaying us on the way there and the sub-par biscuits and one-star waiter at Cracker Barrel on the way back (no road trip is complete without a Cracker Barrell stop, but this one was one of my least favorites).

2) Thanks to Remotely Relevant Ramblings, I have a new and more efficient way of blog-reading. I know I'm probably WAY behind on this, but it is so cool to be able to read all of the blog updates on my favorite blogs in just one click. Be sure to follow her lead, though, on a resolution to still click over and comment.

3) As an addendum to my post about having little boys...
"Having boys means near death experiences that will scare the living day lights out of you (to quote my Grandmomma)." We were at a restaurant last night with friends and KJ was playing as we were about to leave. I looked over at him just in time to see him literally strangled by the rope he had been playing with. His face was turning red and he was not screaming for help, just staring at us wide eyed. I stood up and screamed while Ricky ran to rescue him. When they got back to the table, we were all in a shocked silence until KJ said "that hurt my neck" and I burst into tears. Praise the Lord that this story had a happy ending. We pretty much felt like parents of the year and are just so incredibly grateful that this will be a story we can laugh about later (much later). We STILL have a lot to learn about raising boys!

1. So sad we missed the reunion, but I'm happy to see pics.
2. I agree about the blog commenting... I've been convicted of that lately, hence my comment now. :)
3. OH MY GOODNESS, there were angels with ya'll that day. How scary, so glad he's ok and that he has such awesome parents to run to his aid.

Love ya'll!!!
