Attack of the Zombie Poo

The Pits: Busy work day. The Peaks: I had a nice dinner on the porch while the family was at Target getting discounted Halloween costumes.

Whirlin’ & Whooshin’

The Pits: Hot. The Peaks: The boys and I went for a bike ride in the afternoon.

I Care, Therefore, I Share

The Pits: Weston got his ankle stuck in his bike’s pedal while trying to do a wheelie on tonight’s HWAS.

We All Float Up Here

The Pits: Weston left his lunchbox at school. If he doesn’t find it, that will be the second lunchbox we’ve lost in a month. The Peaks: I went to see “IT” after work while my family was at church getting religion. When I got home, the boys were very interested in how scared I was… Read more »

Gost Sighting

The Pits: Turner brought home a Nintendo 3DS, which he said his friend gave to him. We emailed his friend’s dad, as we don’t think it’s appropriate for him to accept a toy that sells for over $150 new. We’ll see how it pans out. The Peaks: I had a nice dinner chatting with Weston… Read more »
