Being Thankful

I haven't posted in awhile because I just haven't had time to get a good picture. The girls and I are sharing the one camera and so that usually leaves me at the end of the list for getting the camera. But they take awesome pictures so I like them to be able to use it.

So I thought I'de write about what I'm thankful for: (of course, I am blessed with my husband and kids and family and friends but beyond those blessings this is what I'm very thankful for now.)

1) My husband's job. Although it's sucky the hours that he works. With the news of our economy right now I am thankful that he HAS this job.
2) Our health - always our health! I realize how our health can affect us so suddenly. And we just welcomed a new baby into the family (a great-nephew! not my new baby!) that even though he gave us a little scare, he is healthy)
3) Our Cars - two of them are barely holding on and I am thankful for everyday that they get us to our destinations. (Update: one is down :( - ugh!!!!)

I know there is a day coming when I won't have the kids around to take my camera. But strange as it may sound, I am thankful that they are around now - and it's ok if they take my camera - One day I will have all these things and no kids around and that will be sad. So take the camera!!!

Taylor Reservoir Park is beautiful. And we saw alot of it. We drove around for two hours trying to find the kids' PaPa. I was so happy when we saw him!!! He was ok, he knew we were ok - let's fish! The rain held out until the next day and then that wasn't much either. We slept in a tent (reminder to self: Need airmatress) brushed our teeth outside, built a fire, hunted for firewood, saw deer, played games in the camper (during the rain) and fished. Could've only been better if we were able to stay another night. I mean, no cell phones, no computers, no home phone with 3 teenagers makes for some memorable times. (ahem, hence the video above).

See my flickr for more pics of the trip.
