Hot Baseball

Hot BaseballWe are having a great time. Katie Beth is enjoying “Super Soaker Sunder”. She is having the children squirt her with their water pistols.

First Jump Off Diving Board

Katie Beth jumped off the driving board repeatedly today. But, daddy was dying from treading water for so long.

Sorry, I don’t have a picture.

Memorial Weekend Dinner

Memorial Weekend DinnerEveryone had a great time.

Karen and I brought over all the fixings and my dad had the steaks. The weather had a small break so we moved out side.

You will have to go look at our photos, because Faith and Katie Beth had a great time playing in the water.

No More Tears

No More TearsKaren has had it with tears from chopping onions. You are looking at her solution.

You may think why not glasses, but they don’t stop the problem. As you cut an onion, the amino acid sulfoxides are released into the air and form syn-propanethial-S-oxide. This chemical triggers the lachrymal gland to stimulate tear production to flush away the chemical. You have to block the syn-propanethial-S-oxide from reaching your eyes.


Huntsville StarsHeading to Joe Davis Stadium so we can checkout a baseball game and wish our dear friends Allison and Steve Tofflemire a happy 19th anniversary.

The weather should not be too warm and the Huntsville Stars are playing well these days

Wonderful Time at Walt Disney World

Minnie Mouse and Katie BethWell, our trip is over.  Katie Beth had a great time, but she had to learn about queues.

She had a great experience with Mulan in the China Pavilion at Epcot.  Katie Beth took Mulan for a walk through China.  It just wonderful, and thankfully, no one was waiting in line to see Mulan.  They walked around the “Temple of Heaven” and then they returned to where Mulan had been.  They hugged and said their goodbyes.

I think Katie Beth enjoyed all of the play areas more than anything else in the parks.  She climbed all of the place at the Pixie Hollow Play Area.  You will find video at the link at the bottom of this page.

She got to have a turkey leg, which is one of the best items to eat throughout the parks.  There is nothing like the shine of grease all over your face from a turkey leg.

She enjoyed the Safari and Petting Area at Affection Section in the Animal Kingdom.  She had a hard time understanding that you can not go wherever you want.  She kept wanting to go inside the safe areas setup for the animals so they could get away from children.  She really enjoyed seeing all of the animals.


She had a great time seeing all of the Disney characters, too.  Here she is with Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh, and Tigger.  You can see many more pictures of Katie Beth with other Disney characters at the link at the bottom of this page.


The rides were fun.  Katie Beth especially enjoyed the Mad Hatter’s Tea Cup rider.  Here is small video clip:

Trip Coming to an End

We had a great time during this trip. But, Karen has been exhusted most of
the time and her feet are giving her problems (blisters).
