Day 19 - Devon's cheer team is getting ready for a competition.

Day 20 - We all went on a hike on the one and only day it was pretty out.

Taking a Hike

This past Sunday we went to church, went out to lunch and spent the rest of the day on the couch watching football.  For hours and hours.  At the end of the night I told Steve we needed to do something with the family outside the next day.  I suggested we go on a hike and he agreed.  Breaking the news to the kids went something like this:

Denver:  I'm not going.  Why do I have to go?

Delaney:  Why are we going on a hike?  I'm sleepy.

Devon:  What?  Why?

My vision of a happy family taking a hike on a beautiful day was fading fast.

We head out to Line Creek which isn't the prettiest at this time of year but it is close to our house.  Less time to hear children complaining they want to go home.  Here is what it looks like:

The kids slowly start getting into it.  

Look!  They are all together and smiling!  Denver told me that his contract only allows for one picture a day.  Whatever!

Someone had the idea to see who could keep their hand in the water the longest.  FYI - the water is freezing!

Devon was out immediately.

Now this next picture is blurry but you can see Denver was out next and Delaney is feeling the pain of victory.

By the time we got back to the car they all agreed that taking a hike was a fun activity.  Actually, Denver said it was horrible but in teenager language that means good.  

I suggested we take a hike every weekend.  You should have heard the protests!

Life According to My iPhone

Little late but HAPPY 2014!!  I usually make a couple New Year's resolutions.  I'm kinda like this guy:

One resolution that I am going to try and stick with is the photo a day challenge.  I posted about this before here.  The last couple of years I have taken a ton of pictures but have missed a few days here and there. To help keep me accountable I'm going to post my photos.  Since I haven't picked up my camera in months they will all be from my iPhone.  Here is our 2014 so far:

Day 1 - The kids were outside all day!

Day 2 - This is where you will usually find Denver on a cold day.  In his room, on the computer and in his PJs all day.  Not sure where he gets that from.

Day 3 - Delaney has discovered that she loves Starbucks.

Day 4 -  Dad is watching football downstairs so the girls took over our room to watch TV.

Day 5 - Trying to eat healthy stuff during the week.  
This is a work of art!

Day 6 - Dudley is in need of a bath and haircut.

Day 7 - We had our second day of no school due to "snow" .  Actually, there wasn't any snow.  We just can't handle these temps.

So we rented a movie.

And went to Chick-fil-a.  Couldn't go to the drive thru because my window was frozen shut!  That's a first for this Florida girl. 

Day 8 - It's still really cold out so the monkey hat is back!

Day 9 - Denver does NOT like having his picture taken so I had to be sneaky and take this one at his ortho appointment.  Like his day glow orange jacket?

Day 10 - I bought Steve and I the Fitbit Flex.  

Day 11 - It rained and rained and rained some more.  This gives us waterfront property.  Nice.

Day 12 - Devon cart riding.

Day 13 - The above grocery store visits are necessary because the below happens all the time.

Day 14 - Making bracelets and not wanting their picture taken.

Day 15 - This boy loves his dog.

That's Life According to My iPhone!
