As you can see Ruston was fully aware the good stuff was in that bag!

We have been married for 13 years, have lived in 6 states together, bought three houses, sold two houses, graduated college together, have two beautiful children, had a few bumps, learned a lot, and fortunately I love him more today than ever before. I hope for another 50!
Well we were visited by a the only tropical storm. Once it was finally gone and the winds died down, Virginia and I were able to get out in the Kayaks for a short trip. It was awesome. We went out as the sun was coming up and paddled through the kayaks. It was a great way to end our trip. Thanks for getting the boats out for us Joe!
After living in Florida all that time I always wanted to see a Manatee in the wild and never did. We went for a short boat ride earlier in the day and I briefly saw one. We stopped and waited to see it again, but never did. After we made it back to the dock and Virgel yelled at me in the house. This manatee came right up to Joe and Virginia's dock. It was so awesome. Yeah! I was so excited. Ani and Brad loved it. Brad called it a sea cow.

To say that Tracy ( the one in the white) has been through a lot since we left is an understatement. Believe it or not she recently had brain surgery. Tracey your strength and fight are an inspiration to all your friends! It was awesome to see you and to see you doing so well! Love ya girl - and great party!
We headed out for a day on the boat, but we didn't get far. Fortunately, Joe and Virginia's boat has two motors, so when one stopped we were still able to get back to the dock. We weren't even five minutes away. We figured out, a couple days later water was in the fuel tank. Virgel and Joe did an awesome job fixing the boat so we were able to go out later on in the week.
Virginia and I took the kids to Disney World. We had a blast. We were there for just one day and it was enough for all of us. We got there around 10 in the morning and closed the park. The park was decorated in these really cool pumpkins and giant one in the front of the park. It was really neat. The weather was cool and a little rainy, but we stayed out of the little bit of rain that we had and the park was empty. We walked on all the rides. The kids asked, can we go again - so we did. It was a lot of fun!
I have never been to a pumpkin patch before. I expected, well pumpkins. Boy, was I wrong. There was so much more than pumpkins. There was tons of stuff for the kids to do. The Last thing we did that day was actually pick the pumpkins. There were 15 kids from Ani's school that went. It was tough keeping up with everyone, but they all had a really good time!
It was fun watching the kids get off the hay ride and go for their very own pumpkin. They all had in mind exactly what they wanted. Some wanted big ones, some wanted little ones, some orange ones, some with green. This was Ani's perfect pumpkin. She was soooo very pround of it. She slept with it for three nights!
