So my husband, Marty, has a blog also . He titled it MTthoughts which I know he is going for the creative title but let me tell you he has everything but "empty thoughts." He is one of the most creative and knowledgeable people I know. He somehow seems to know a little about everything, seriously. I wish I could have some of his creativity. But since I can't, I just ask for his help and advice ALOT. To steal a line from his blog "Check it out if you like voyeuristic peering into someone else’s personal life. Sicko."

Not much to say

I haven't had much to blog about lately. I know lots of people put up their Easter pictures. I don't have any Easter pictures. I always have the intention of taking pictures, but it always seems to be to late when I try and the kids fall apart. I took one good picture of the girls in their dresses. So Marty and I plan to take pictures this weekend in their Easter outfits. Also since Marty and I were both working all of our 6 services we didn't really have time for any family events.
I also like to find a cute picture and blog about it but the other day my camera broke. Actually I believe that my beautiful daughter Abbie broke it. The camera was sitting on the kitchen table and when I came back these were some of the pictures that she had taken. At least the camera is still under warranty!

I love the perspective on these pictures. I was a little embarrassed at how dirty our kitchen was, but oh well I do the best I can right now:)

Three, Two, One Liftoff!

Marty and I decided to be adventurous parents and take our kids to see the space shuttle launch last night. It was a night launch - at 2:28am to be exact. We had heard these were really cool and so worth going to see so we thought we would try it. Our friends Chris and Erin came along with us also. We prepared ourselves that we may drive over to the beach (about an 1 1/2 away ) in the middle of the night with our three kids and the launch may not happen. Well, the launch did happen and it was well worth driving over to see. It was even worth all the traffic leaving from the launch.
Where we were (right along US 1 with only a river between us and the launch pad) we could see the launch pad directly. It was really amazing to see the pad where they have super bright lights shining on the shuttle. When the shuttle did lift off, it was almost like it was daytime it was so bright. We only got to see the shuttle for a little because of clouds which was a little disappointing, but we all agreed it was well worth the drive! I am so glad after almost 8 years in Florida we finally went to see a shuttle launch!

Chris taped the whole thing also. We of course didn't take pictures though. I seem to always forget to take pictures. But here's someone else's video of what we saw.
