Manic Monday....

Do you ever have thos days where you wanna punch everyone who walks into your office in the neck?      No??      Guess it's just me then.  

This weekend was a bust because so much dang ish went wrong.  But it's ok because there was still a whole bunch of stuff that went right!  For each piece of bad news I've received, I prayed.  Those prayers were answered in a way that only God can.  God is Good!! 

I know that bad things happen for a reason and sometimes it's super hard to see what the reason is.  But seriously folks....HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!!!

We've started a new habit of going to Sea World on Friday about 8:30 or 9:00 at night.  Yes we are crazies.  But we are able to park in the front row, ride the new Manta roller coaster at least 3 times, enjoy our popcorn, soda and cotton candy refills for $5.78.  Heller, How ya dern?

After Sea World we drove over to my secret spot to do some Grunion Hunting. Going to the beach at midnight in the summer to see the Grunion run is one of my most favorite memories.  It's a rite of passage for any SoCal kid.  

This is a Grunion.  

They come up on shore to make babies.  Then we ruin the mood by catching them.  My kids just wanted to hold it...then we threw it back in.  Other people keep them to use as bait.  Some eat them, kinda gross. We also narrowly missed stepping on a baby sting ray that washed up on the beach.  Gina used her flip flops to scoop it back into the water.  Her good deed for the day.  

Today is the start of our hectic football season.  Practice 4 days a week for my little man....and school starts back on Wednesday.  Yes ALREADY!! Woohoo!!! 



  1. That is so cool! I wish we had a theme park that readily available! The closest ones to us are in Denver!

  2. I love your Friday Night tradition! Sounds like so much fun and definitely memorable! Also, I'm glad to see you made it to the beach!! 8)

    God IS good!


I LOVE reading your thoughts!! :)
