Springbreak Kingman Style

We decided to take a spur of the moment day trip to Lake Havasu--about an hour away from us. We loaded up the kiddies and hit the road not realizing that yes, LUCKY US, it was "spring break" season at the lake. We obviously aren't locals yet and had no way of knowing that we would be surrounded by booze hounding, radio blasting, no-clothes-wearing, speed boating college students. (wow I sound like an adult) It really wasn't as bad as I make it sound--it just gave us Las Vegas-visits-to-the-strip flash backs and then (sadly to admit) a little bit of jealousy as I avoided eye contact with little twiglet college girls who looked a whole lot better than me trucking around my diaper bag, two kids, and obvious mom attire. Nonetheless, we had a great time enjoying the warm weather, water, good food and fresh air. Next time we'll look for the non-partly-nudey, alcohol free beach so as to avoid having Jason snicker "boobs" as he played soccer on the grass! I know, I know--they grow up so fast!

Can you say Happy Gilmore?

Scott woke up early this morning, packed up Jason and headed out for a little bonding time on the golf course. Jason had the time of his life--golf is the one constant for him. Since he was about 9 months old and started playing with Scott's clubs, it has been the only "toy" that he never looses interest in. Maybe that's a sign--Tiger Woods right?

Enough Said!

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 - 2005
