Yesterday the kids came in saying that there was a bird in the clubhouse. So when I went out and checked sure enough it was there just looking at us, not trying to move or escape. So I grabbed a bucket and caught the thing, put a lid on it so that there was air, but it could not escape because I thought it was wounded. Looked up on the internet and found that it was a mourning dove. They are game birds or can be kept as pets. I didn't want to keep it, but wasn't sure what to do with it. When Jason and the boys got home, you can imagine being a hunter what Jason said he wanted to do. Colin decided to take the bucket into the yard and take the lid off, and that stupid bird flew off! Why did it let me catch it and spend the day in the bucket and give me stress? Crazy bird...it was exciting for the kids if nothing else. We made these cute little turkeys. I had brought the pine cones home with us from camping for starting our fires in the fire pit, but they make better turkeys than fire starters.
This movie was FANTASTIC! We were ready to go right back in and see it again. I thought that Edward and Bella were perfect for the parts. It is a two hour movie, but you definitely don't feel like you've been there that long. I didn't want it to end! This is one movie I don't think I would ever get to much of. Jason said he couldn't wait until this stupid movie was over so he didn't have to hear about it anymore. Can you believe he called it stupid? Obviously he hasn't read the books! And now, we can all look forward to New Moon! WOO-HOO - Hooray!!! So girls, when are we going again? :)
I had a $10.00 off coupon from Office Max and they had some great deals last week. After all was done I got all my things for $1.09! I love when it works out that way. I added up everything I got at regular price and it was $32.52 worth of stuff I got for just over a buck!
Bringing out the #99 car and getting it ready. Next year Carl will have a different car. He is not being sponsored by Office Depot next year but only by Aflac. Tony Stewart (YUCK) will be going from Home Depot to Office Depot next year.
The lady (don't know her name, but Jason would) from the sports channel was doing the news while we were standing there.
These are the guys who work with Carl. They have actually touch and talk to him!! It is amazing how fast they can change 4 tires, gas up, clean the windshield and whatever else they do in about 12 seconds!! It's fun to see.
Here is the pit crew at work.
The cars were racing and then next thing they had red flagged for sprinkles. The cars were stopped for about 20 minutes waiting for the sprinkles to stop and then drying off the track.
This is Saige's car. She LOVES Kyle Busch! When we watch the races on TV she will yell "Go Kyle Busch, go Kyle Busch". She likes his pink M&M car too. They had his showcar at Fry's by our house and she got to see it and get a picture of Kyle, and now all she talks about is getting his autograph. I found out that you can mail them things and they will sign it and mail it back. That is probably the only way she will ever get it signed.
This is Clint Bowyer's car. Jason likes this #07 car. We found out that next year Clint Bowyer will be driving the #33 Cheerios car, so Jason will have to get some new gear.
