Brian and I took a little trip this past week to Orlando, FL. We actually went for fun and so that Brian and I could just spend some much needed time together but it was also for a huge event that our church attends every year called General Council. We got to hang out with friends and also just be together which hasn't happened in a long time. It was good times! Brian got to play golf. I got to run on the treadmill and lay by the pool with my friend, Beth. And we ate out alot!! It was awesome!! I want to give a shout out to Sara and Matt who watched the kids the ENTIRE time which was huge feat!! Thanks guys!

On the plane I got to catch up with my good buddies from the 80's!! Oh, Saved By The Bell! How I loved you!! Screech, why did you have to go off the deep end? That's all I'm going to say about that.

When we landed on Tuesday we headed out to the Florida mall in search of a few items we forgot. I was looking for a hat I could run in but Brian decided to try some on for coolness sake. He didn't buy it just in case you are wondering. Even though he did look incredibly hot. Maybe....

On the way to dinner one night. I was "smoodged" in between two guys(Brian and Shane E.) in the front seat. Shane E's dad(Larry), Beth, and Shane B. in the back.

I don't really know why I was making this face but I had a reason at the time. Me and Shane E.

Larry liked to make fun of me because I'm having vision problems at the moment and have to hold everything at arms length at least. So when I was taking a picture....this is the sassy-ness I got. Thank you VERY much!

At dinner with some fun friends! Jenni and Scott Wilson(our pastor and his wife), Larry Everett, Justin Lathrop, Shane Everett, Brian, Shane and Beth Barnard. We had a great time despite the awkward waiter!!

Beth singing to a crowd of preacher's kids one night at one of the services. I just love this girl...she is the real deal!!

Shane B. being sweet with his wifey while she sang.

And apparently, when the cat is away the mice will play....Sara and Matt caught Adiah and Hannah in the sink in Adiah's bathroom with toothbrushes, toothpaste, Desitin(diaper rash cream), and a whole lot of water. I heard that Matt said..."Sara. Get the camera. First we take pictures. Then they get in trouble!"

I'm glad you took pics of your vaca. I heard the stories but I needed a visual. Your kids were awesome, btw, and though I was tired it wasn't because of stress...just the fact that I wasn't used to seven kids. We all really had a good time and thanks for letting us eat you out of house and home!

Ummm...hello. You are totally hanging with celebs!! Your cool factor just went through the roof. :) Looks like a fun trip.

Did I ever tell you how amazing you were at our ladies retreat? Well, sister you have a gift. It really was incredible for me.

I so almost bought that same magazine to catch up on the Saved by the Bell bunch!
Love that I'm not the only one that grabs the camera BEFORE I discipline my kids...
