The past couple of weekends we have been out exploring different State Parks with the punks. Last weekend we went to Buck's Pocket I think we all had a good time. We didn't have the littlest punk with us. It was dreary and rainy that morning so she stayed with Granny. The week before we went we had had some major flooding in our area so we were a little weary, but it was all good. You could tell how high the water had gotten by standing on the river bank near the water, you could look up about 4-5 feet above your head and see debris and leaves/sticks caught in the tree limbs from the water rushing through. We walked the river bank a while then decided to go hiking up in the woods. I could tell I am majorly out of shape. My legs haven't felt a burn like that in a long time. It looked like it would be a nice place to camp. The punks could play around in the creek to cool off, but that would depend on the current. It was a good rafting river too. We saw a group of kayaks go by while we were walking. We started losing day light so we hoped back in the van and drove down another road a little father and came upon a bridge that was still flooded. The punks wanted to try to walk across it, but you could tell that it was way to strong to try that. Plus the water was FREEZING!!! I wouldn't even try to drive across it! On our way back out we stopped and took a few pics of a waterfall that was on the side of the road. All in all we had a good day.
This weekend we went to Rickwood Caverns. Even though the cave tours were still closed for the season we decided to go ahead and check it out. It was a little windy and chilly today. We only had 3 punks with us today, little one included. As soon as we got there she hit the playground! She played there for a long long time. Her older sisters stayed there as well. For a long time we were the only ones there, then a couple more kids showed up. After a while we got the little one and started walking up the trail, well she made it about .5 miles and was ready to go back! She had a hard time walking on the rocks. She didn't like that there were caves/holes under and inbetween the rocks. She did pretty good though. This park had a swimming pool! This would be a good place to camp with the punks. The cave tours would be open during the summer for them to do, plus swimming and hiking would keep them busy! We didn't get to stay a long today as I would have liked. But long enough to figure out what we needed to know.
Hopefully within the next few weekends we can check out some other parks!

I love messing with stuff. My blog was in the line of fire so it got hit this time...
I'm still tweaking in so let me know what you think. Well if there is anyone out there, let me know what you think. .....Taps microphone...Is this thing on???.... Ya know, sometimes I wonder if anybody does read my ramblings. Yeah I'm off the wall, sometimes just plain loopy. But oh well, nice to meet you!
What are your resolutions for 2009? It's a new beginning remember. Like last year wasn't enough..lol My resolution for 2009: Not to make any resolutions! That way I don't kick myself in the ass for not doing what I wanted to. Now I can make a list of what I want to do, but when I don't finish them I won't be as disappointed in myself. So I'm not going to lose weight (don't need too), I'm not going to get in shape, I'm not going to quit drinking or smoking, I'm not going to save money, or stockpile things, all in all I'm not going to do anyting I'm not already doing!!!

I give up. I so sick and tired of trying to make plans only to have them crash and burn. We were planning a trip to MI, yeah it had to go and rain so now that trip is out. Ugh!!! I was so looking forward to the getaway. I needed it. But, it was par for the course for it not to happen. I should have know that it wouldn't have worked trying to plan it so quickly like we did. Some things began to unravel about a week ago, then something else would show up, then the weather tipped the bowl over this weekend and that was that. I keep hoping for a last minute miracle, but even then it's too late now. Damn it!!! I'm sure we'll go back this summer. But shit fire I wanted to go now. So did the punks. Freaking fracking fu@k a duck. I give up.

The jolly ole' man makes his appearance tonight! The countdown is almost over, it's down to the hours instead of days now. I still have a few last minute gifts to get that I overlooked last night when I thought I finished up shopping! In just a few hours we start our annual traveling to visit here and there. Dinner with the inlaws tonight, breakfast at grandmothers in the morning, then lunch at my moms. I'm already tired!!!
Here is a pic of the littlest punk with Santa:
Here I am with most of the punks!!! I'm missing punk 12! I wish she would have been there. Oh, she cut her hair off. I don't really like it, but it's her hair. She has to deal with it and man she has some thick thick hair!
