Miracles Do Happen. Amen

We took off this weekend for our mini vaca...WHY? Because I thought I might be having a nervous breakdown between the thought of moving and work and school, and well....just life. So my blog friend LinderLoo invited us out to her little slice of heaven....and heaven indeed it was...I swear by all that is good and holy in this world that this is exactly what we needed. Now LinderLoo? Her and her loving hubby are in deep therapy right now, but you have to expect a few losses in a big operation like this.... But seriously, I have never seen a person with a greater gift of hospitality than LinderLoo -- she is amazing.
Anyhoo -- we started the day off with a little chariot tubing. Their adventurous spirit soon kicked in and they were ready to try some daredevil moves. I just knew one of them was gonna go flying through the air in acrobatic move straight out of one of them Branson shows....
But alas, they stayed safe and sound on the float...
Dry as can be....can I be honest? I was a little disappointed...I thought it would kinda be funny to see one of my spawn be catapulted through the lake...Is that wrong? If so I was totally just joking.
Now I know you are gonna think I am lying on this next one, but I swear on the future of Dr Pepper lip gloss that BT WANTED to get on the chariot....I KID YOU NOT... And he was fine Until we actually moved the boat....Uhm, then all H - E - double-hockey-sticks broke loose.
And can I just say that this is one of my fave pics ev-er....cause ET tried to diminish the pure panic and ever loving terror flowing through BT's veins. Unfortunately it did not work... He felt much better ON THE BOAT...And even more at home as the Captain. This is what he was born for...Now if you thought I was lying before -- you are REALLY gonna think I am a Baptist sinner now. Cause you all know BT has a severe aqua allergy which results in screams of terror as the flames of hell lap at his feet.
But somehow (and I ain't complain) the marvelous LinderLoo was able to perform this miracle:
Kid you not -- it was right up there with that water and wine thing....Prit near astonishing. The kid could not only swim...BUT WAS JUMPING and DIVING in the lake.
I know. I know. I performed an exorcism right then and there cause I just new my baby had become possessed.
Cause those Lake Demons can be awful powerful and all.
But alas, he had turned into Aqua Baby Twerp -- cape and all.
But at the end of the day -- we were all tuckered out.
And this was my favorite time.The sunset...The Twerps all worn out...

And the friendships and memories to last.

I'm so glad you guys had a great time!! Girl, you needed that! And Im glad BT is getting over his water allegy,too. And just for the record, if my kids were on that float thing, and then they went flying across the lake.....well, I think I would laugh my hiney off. Kay? ;)

I swear I think aliens replaced BT witha pod child! I'm still blown away! He was my biggest concern; the aqua allergic child vacationing at the lake! Holy Moly! But boy oh boy did we have fun! ELPH says to make your reservations for next year now cuz that Pricey Resort books up fast;-)

Ok #1 If you went to Branson then you were in my neck of woods.

Ok #2 It's ok once in a while to see the kids topple and splash for a parent chuckle.

Ok #3 I didn't want to mention this, but there is a dog (aka pet) sittin next to your youngest. I would hate for him to get attached. :)

Ok #4 the sunset is very beautiful. Hope you all feel revived

HOLY. COW. I want to know what Linda a/k/a The Miracle Worker did to get BT in that water! Because lake water is way scarier than YMCA water!

PS - I <3 Linda's doggie and the pic of him with BT's arm around him.
