i told ya...

that i'd post.
i did...and it's a looong one!

hurricane ike made his way past ohio, and we were without power from sunday (early) afternoon until today around 3...
{i'll show you pics of that in a minute}


now, to catch up on my summer:

*jackson's mom got us tickets to the dayton dragon's family day.
we took the girls, as well as two of my cousins...

ashlyn didn't quite get the sack race,
so jackson had to "help"

ashlyn didn't quite get the fact that you're supposed to catch the water balloon...
this one burst in front of her and she burst into hysterics because she got wet...
but, the dragon's player on the right made her day when he gave her a brand new water balloon to keep

*we were supposed to go camping, but it didn't work out...{we were a little busy with label orders}
so, we took the girls to the aquarium instead...i know these aren't the best pics, but i think they're cool!

*and this is what ike left us...lots and lots of kindling.
we dealt with 60-70 mile-an-hour winds for half a day, lost power for a little over 24 hours, and had to toss out most of our food...
when i think about what people in texas had to deal with, it really puts the whole situation in a new perspective...
