In other news today is my sweet son's birthday. I cannot believe he is 9, that 9 years ago my heart and life changed forever. He was a good sweet baby, we were so happy to have him after 2 years of trying to have a baby and we are still blessed to have him in our life. He got a PS2 for his birthday-his VERY OWN gaming system and he was SOOO happy. As soon as I download pictures I will post them.

Walking in the footsteps of George Washington...this ferry road lead across the river to his home
We always let the kids pick a treasure when we are on our adventures. All Bella wanted was this little bonnet. Savannah chose a fan and David picked a pack of civil war army guys.

Anyway, I was laughing because even though they always want to go and they do have fun...the funny comments made along the way-if a stranger heard them they would think we were torturing our kids. Here are some of the things heard on Monday:
Here is what they do when we've gone too far:
This path we had to drive 20 minutes to get to-in the summer lush green with tasty grapes to sample-beautiful fall colors of yellow, orange and red and in the winter the snow...so gorgeous.
We had a regional stake conference broadcast on Sunday and Elder Uchtdorf spoke. Hearing his accent just made me miss Germany-so I've been thinking about it lately-the brats, the great markets, bakeries with the best bread and pastries, the autobahn, the mountains (as we sit in mountainless Virginia), donor kebaps YUMMY, the people, the architecture, the cheese, the church bells-I totally miss hearing the bells, and oh did I mention the brats, cheese yummy bread, pastries and donor kebaps yet?? Oh and German DIET COKE-I almost forgot! It is different than American diet coke and it is SO YUMMY. If I could I've have someone mail me a case then I'd savor it all sip by sip. Anyway, I'll sign off now, auf wiedersehen....I'm going to sit here and think of German DC and donors all night long.

Man: I was never convicted of those charges
Bella: you're wearing a belt

Last week was all about the boys. First we had a pinewood derby. Dave & my dad helped David make his car (notice the paint job-most definitely not done by an almost 9 year old with a 2 second attention span). Last year the pinewood derby was the week the movers came to pack us out...David's car ended up being a painted block with wheels and quarters attached. Needless to say he came in dead last and ended up crying so we felt we needed to make it up to him by helping him make a super car this year. Thanks to Dad's secret formula David won every race, by a lot! He was so happy-doing victory dances after every race but making sure to tell the other kids they did great too.
