My New Signature!

I made a new signature!  I'm not too sure if I really like it though.  I was just messing around.  I just taught myself a little about HTML code by trial and error.  Some words/names look really good with some fonts, some don't.  In this case, my name doesn't look good...I had to capitalize the "K" because it was cutting it off.  Okay, I'm exiting Nerdville now...back to paying the bills.  I hope everyone has an AWESOME day!

Happy Independence Day!
This is the point at which I should add a bit of history about the 4th of July and remind you about this great nation we live in, and how privileged we are to be free, etc., etc.  You get it.  You know this stuff already.  So I'll just skip it!  Just remember to REMEMBER please!  Okay, so I hope your day was SUPER-FANTABULOUS!!!  We got really ADVENTUROUS and must have been suffering from some form of temporary insanity that affects the decision-making process due to sleep-deprivation and decided to take the kids to a Drive-In Movie.  Yeah, I know...
WHAT were we THINKING!!! 
Why were we willing to risk our sanity for such an adventure you ask?  TOY STORY 3 & THE KARATE KID...all in ONE night!!!  And what a great experience...they've never done this before!  Plus, we love our kiddos so much!  It really did sound like a good idea, but we should have known it was a recipe for disaster though...
1.  2 little girls who can't sit through movies in public
2.  1st movie started at 9pm!!!
3.  Past the baby's bedtime! 
4.  We got there at flippin' 7pm! (We wanted to make sure we got tickets...we weren't aware that we couldn't leave once we purchased them...vehicle had to stay!)
Don't ask me if I liked TOY STORY 3...I don't remember much of it!  We chased the baby all over the place and the other little girl was in and out of the car every 2 seconds!  It was hot and sticky and I think some of the reason was because I got that nervous sweat that parents sometimes break out in when their kids are going BONKERS!!!  Don't ask me if I liked THE KARATE KID either...we DIDN'T stay!!!  We probably peeled out when we left!  I'm sure our tires were squealing! No, we probably left so fast people's heads were spinning!  No, we probably left so fast we traveled faster than the speed of light!  Amazingly though, the kids LOVED it!  They had a lot of fun...the 3 who can talk told us!  They loved the movie and it was a fun experience.  They absolutely loved watching a movie outside.  Hey, it's all about the EXPERIENCE, right?!!  I'm glad Hubby and I could lose our minds for a few hours for our little Loves!!!  For that my Friend, it was worth it!  This 4th of July will definitely stand out and go down in our memories as another great family adventure!  :)
