Manteo Resort and the Monster Jam

Yes, while the two don't seem to go together, we spent the weekend with three other families at the Monteo Resort and Saturday night at the Monster truck show. The resort was fabulous - we were right on the beach and shared a big unit with another family of friends. We backed right onto the beach and would have our morning coffee down on the beach with the kids playing in the sand. The rest of the days were either spent at the pool or the beach. Two condos, four couples, eleven kids - a great time! Probably one of the most exciting parts of the truck show was the security coming and telling me that my camera was too good and that I couldn't take pictures! No kidding. As you can see, I sweetly and promptly complied.
Liam contemplating his future.... Hmmm... "I know I've wanted to be a doctor since I could talk, but this monster truck thing looks like a viable alternative...."
These were amazing to watch - but as the parent of a crazy little risk taker, I had to point out to Samuel that some of these guys won't be walking by the time they're Daddy's age. (One of the guys had something like 137 broken bones, including his back.)

Teigan loved it, but by about 10pm was done in and ready for bed.
Yes, we paid the money to ride around the parking lot for 37 seconds in a massive monter truck.
With my handsome Honey by the pool. Yes, those are bangs I'm sporting. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I went in to get my hair cut last week. There's a reason that I haven't had bangs in 12 years... and won't have I'm sure for another 12 by the time I grow these out. When my hair is down I look suspisiously like Van Halen or Bon Jovi or some other rocker dude from the 80s. Yes, dude... Tink and Mommy time, out back of our condo. I love this one.
Ah, yes... the waterslide. Many, many runs down this thing were had! What a great weekend playing with the kids and enjoying the amazing Okanagan summer - yup it was the first weekend in June and it was in the 30s. Loving it!

Hi Karyn-

Love your new pictures. Our day at Monster Jam was amazing. ON Friday Ed saw Linsey Weenk (Iron Outlaw's driver) working on the truck with his crew in the lot so we all went to meet him and take pictures. He signed Aidan;s Iron Outlaw page of his MJ book. Then on Sunday we had pit passes and got to meet and take photos with all the drivers. So fun! Of course, I took way to many photos.

It was great having you guys over. Aidan has beent alking about the boys ever since. So great they get along so well.

Talk to you soon-

Tim...you BIG goofball!!!! This is not a dating service?!? If you really want to get married within the next few months you should really try investing in a shrink ;o) As for spicing up her blog, maybe a picture of some cayenne pepper would help with your 'friskiness'! FREAK!
