Well, Ryan and I did a silly thing on Saturday. We went to Silverwood. Now, one might think, gee, that sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't been to Silverwood in years, so, we went with my family for one last outing before Ty left for school. Yeah, should have rethought that decision. We took Callie. For those of you who have ears probably know that I was a fool. Yes, I am sure most of the several thousand people at Silverwood heard us at some point during the day. It was an utter disaster. Nothing was what she wanted, and then when she was finally happy, something would go wrong, like her trying to steal someone else's ball. Yup, that really did happen. She wasn't a big fan of waiting in line, which I can understand, who is, but seriously, like three minutes isn't that big of a deal, however, my broken ear drums prove otherwise. So, what did most people see? A hugely pregnant chick carrying around a screaming child, I looked ridiculous.
Thankfully there were a few saving moments. She loved the log ride, until my dad sprayed us, ya know, when you plug in the quarter and you can spray whoever is in front of the water gun thing. Yeah, none of us liked that so much, but the rest of the ride was fabulous. And she LOVED the little kid ferris wheel. Oh man, she just laughed, absolutely loved it. Then she screamed when it stopped because she didn't want to get off. The first time, the girl unbuckled her seatbelt and opened the door for her to get out and she just closed the door and sat back down. Hmmm, I think she might be a little independent. Anyway, I guess I am glad we went, I am not sure yet, however, we will not be returning with her for several years and next time I don't want to be pregnant. I like roller coasters and obviously, they discourage them when you are two weeks away from giving birth! I have now documented this expedition for all to read, and to serve as a forever reminder why we don't do certain activities, but rather, wait until the kids are just a little bigger!

Wow, you're a brave woman! Even just being on your feet all day, let alone a screaming child! You should have brought her over here! Anyway, good story, I'm glad that I'm not the only one that comes home from family outings thinking "What was I thinking .... and that was totally NOT worth it!" Live and learn, I guess!

Way to go Abby! I hope you enjoy your new little one soon. We plan on calling Ty soon and having him to dinner. Miss you.
