We are expecting crazy storms today. It's been a lazy Sunday and we decided to let clementine in for a bit since it was sprinkling. She prefers it ousted but enjoyed some play time with jl once I covered the couch with an old sheet!

Funny sayings.

"Mama are y'all gonna talk about calories again at dinner?"

"My P.E. Teacher has a busted blood muscle in her eye."  ( blood vessel)

"I thought you told me everyone started out as babies?!  Adam and Eve didn't! Hmmm. Maybe they would have made better decisions if they had parents."

The Wizard of Oz

What a great show!  This pic is with the Tin Man. Jl has a pretty large canker sore in his mouth and it hurts to talk or smile so we did a handshake picture. After the picture we headed right down the road to  Colliers Drug Store to get Ambesol. By the time we made it to dinner he said "mama I need some more of the numbing sauce".  Love that kid.

Hiking on Kessler Trail/ Rock City

Today was a great day for a hike. The trail we picked was a little muddy but was a great hike with lots of rock cliffs and scenery.   The sound of the frogs today was mesmerizing. It's my favorite sound in the world.  I even got video / sound recordings!

John Lleyton is really at home in the woods. He packed his own back pack with beef jerky, a flashlight, and water. He begged to bring it and was reminded when he was tired if it we were not carrying it. HE NEVER TOOK IT OFF!

It was a great one mile hike. We coukd have gone further but we decided late in the day to go and it was nearing supper time. 

My allergies are in full swing after the hike so I'm off to take some meds while Greg does a tick check on JL. I found one one him as he was getting in the shower!!
