Rollin' rollin' rollin.....

Last weekend - the family went up to North Carolina. The hubs played in a Church League National Softball Tournament. (They placed 3rd). It was a VERY nice trip. We got there Friday evening - all the kiddos talked about was swimming - I 'promised' them we'd go swimming the next day.

So while daddy went and played ball, me and the kiddos hung out by the pool. We had all intentions of spending some time at the field, but we ended up here all afternoon:

One.....twoooo...........freeeeeee - notice the scrunched up close the eyes face

catching some rays

Brylee and all her 'gear'

Braxton totally doing something against the rules................ ha

Me and the hubs............."please take a serious picture" face............hmmmmmm
We had a very nice time - with the exception of Braxton getting bite by a snake in the pool, while he was swimming under water (in all that gear he had on) Yes yes....this is what he told a little girl in his class.
I was in a local store yesterday....and the girls mom works there....she asks "did Braxton get bit by a snake?" All I could think was or Lord what did my son tell now! I just said mmm no - she asked then, do you guys have a pool. I told her we didn't, but went out of town last weekend and spent the day at the pool. Apparently he told the little girl he got bit by a snake while he was swimming under water.......She told her mom - "it's true - I saw the bite mark and everything! He showed it to me in class"
All I could do was shake my head...........sigh you never EVER know what your children are going to say (especially boys) I know my son is always wrestling alligators jumping out of trees, fighting off bears....killing snakes and beating up monstors - among other things.
The busy life of a 5 year old.

Ha Ha... love the story Braxton told a girl in his class. Too funny! I wonder what he'll come up with in high school. :)
