Life At Random

I noticed recently I have a lot of random pictures piling up on my laptop, so I thought now would be a good time to post them.  Here are some of the things we've been up to lately.  At the end of the summer we had a visit from "Nana" from Texas and we took her to her first Loons game, the kids started school again, Ben and I are skateboarding together, the kids had their first "lemonade stand," we went to the "Midland Balloon Festival," we went apple picking, we went to a Midland High football game, and we took care of my Uncle's dog "Buddy."  Oh yeah, Megan also lost her two front teeth.

Universal Studios

A few weeks ago we took one last vacation before the start of school.  It was our first true vacation since we returned to the States.  We flew down to Orlando and spent a long weekend at Universal Studios.  We always enjoy going down to Orlando and we usually end up spending all of our time at the Disney parks.  However, this time we decided to do something different and visit Universal.  We thought the kids were old enough to enjoy it and we were right.  We all had a blast.  The highlights were all the Harry Potter attractions, which were completely off the wall.  The Marvel Island and Jurassic Park rides were also very cool.  Here are some of the highlights.
