Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday

I thought that I would share a picture of two of our boys.

The little one is our newest addition, T.J. (Thomas James), who is 2.

Robbie (Robert Malachi) is our 4 year old whose smile could melt butter.

The elephant in the picture is courtesy of the Cincinnati Zoo. We recently took our two youngest boys and they had a BLAST!! They even got to feed a giraffe!! COOL!!

I would give this zoo a "thumbs up" for the amount of animals, activities for the kids and on being family friendly.

Free Chick-fil-A for Customers in Cow Costumes

Don't do a double take Friday if you happen to see some customers at Chick-fil-A dressed as bovines. They're just celebrating the chain's fifth annual Cow Appreciation Day.

Any customer who shows up to the restaurant on July 10 dressed in full cow regalia -- that means dressed from head to hoof -- will get a free combo meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner).

Those who come with just a piece of cow clothing (T-shirt, bandanna, purse, etc.) will get a free entree.

You'd better get "MOOOOO"ving on your costumes for FREE food! :)

"Rush Of Fools"

I am thankful for quality time …

I got to spend some time today with my oldest son, Kevin. Between his work and school, he is not around much, so I jumped at the chance.

We went and saw “Rush Of Fools”*** at the Festival Of The Bells in Hillsboro, Ohio.

Of course, we also had funnel cake!!! YUMMY!!!

*** Rush of Fools is a Christian rock/Contemporary Christian Music band from Alabama, U.S. They are known for their 2007 hit single "Undo", which was the most played song of 2007 on Adult Contemporary Christian Music radio stations according to R&R magazine.[1] It was the #1 Christian song for five consecutive weeks from June 4 to July 2, 2007 on 20 The Countdown Magazine's charts. Their second single "When Our Hearts Sing" was the seventh most played song of 2007.[1] The band's name was taken from the Biblical passage, 1 Corinthians 1:26-31.[2] The band's second album, Wonder of the World, was released on September 16, 2008. It features one of their latest hits "Lose it All".
