I have about 4 different journals that I write in. I found one yesterday and decided to read it. One of the entries went like this:

April 16, 2007
My dad was eating next to Grandma Carpenter, and for some reason he made the comment, "Thats ok, I like it topless." She gave him the meanest glare, and me and Dena started giggling. My dad started laughing too, and he apologized to Grandma C. It wasn't on purpose, but it was super funny.

Hahaha! I think he was eating a sandwich without a piece of bread on top or something. I'm so glad I wrote this down! I love journals!

Family Circus

I was looking through old pictures on my computer. I LOVE them! I love pictures! I'm sad that the rest of them are across the country, but when I go this summer, I'm going to be scanning them all for sure! Anyway, this is the one I came across and it brought back ALL kinds of memories...

First of all, the Big Red Ford in the bottom left corner! I loved that thing! Second of all, that cement mixer that used to be at Grandma and Grandpas house right by his shed. I guess this was around the time we were adding to our front porch. Third of all, us! My dad would come out on the trampoline with us! All the time! It was always him bouncing us a little too high, and my mom yelling out the window to be careful. No one ever got hurt, I might add. When my mom got too nervous, my dad would change our activity, and this is one of the outcomes. I think we were trying to be Cirque du Soleil performers or something. I think for a whole summer, we did this every night. That is a good memory! How about you guys get a trampoline for your new house? :)
