If I had superpowers...

If I had superpowers it wouldn't be flying or x-ray vision or super strength or lightning speed... it would be doing laundry in a blink of an eye!! Seriously. In a blink of an eye ALL the laundry would be clean, dried, folded and put away just the way I like it. I think that superpower would be better than ANY of the other super powers that super heros have out there. But then none of them are parents (that I know of) or stay at home moms/dads so they don't know what a daunting task of doing laundry is. I'd rather takle a bad guy rather than laundry somedays. And my kryptonite would be poopy diapers.

Did you know you could seriously knock down your energy bill just by hang drying your clothes? You can. We save $20-50 a month. It super sucks having to do it and you have to do a load basically EVERY day otherwise you get behind. I cheat sometimes and use the dryer but the motor in mine is kinda overheating when I dry clothes in it and it never really fully dries my clothes unless it's a super small load so I guess it's a good thing I'm hang drying my clothes anyways. *sigh* I can't wait till the day when we move into a place where I can bring my front load, energy saving, triple load washer and dryer out of storage... until then I'm doing what I'm doing.

If you guys have been following mine and my moms facebook then you already know this and if not then you will. My brother Austin and his girl Colette went yesterday to find out if they were having a girl or boy... ITS A GIRL!!! Super exciting. But the news weren't all that good they discovered something about the brain,hydrocephaly I guess it's called (my mom knows a whole lot more) and today they had some more testing and it turns out the baby doesn't have a brain just a brain stem. So they're not going to be able to keep the baby. We are all devasted over this. And poor Austin and Colette to have to go through this. I wish I could be with them and help out any way I can. It's just so horrible.

Before we left for Idaho we went to the Prince William County Fair and Dani and the kids were able to join us and it was so much fun.

In Idaho we went to the Western Idaho Fair and my mom and Madison went with us and it was awesome. Madison is such a trooper even though most of the rides weren't that exciting for her she went on them anyways so she could ride with Ginger. What a girl!

Needless to say we are all faired out.

Floating the River

In Idaho we did what all Idahoans do... we floated the Boise river! It was awesome. I don't know I didn't do it more often when I lived there? Probably cuz' I thought oh next year. It was so much. Josh's mom watched Zoey and we took Ginger with us. My mom also joined in on the fun. She rented a tube that had a mesh bottom for Ginger and it was perfect for her. She was safe the whole time. It takes like 3 hours to float it and it was so relaxing and COLD! My mom brought some tubes for us as well, and Josh and I had one to. The ones my mom brought were so small. I felt like a giant in it. And it wasn't easy to keep myself in it the whole time. Me and my totally got dumped going over the first waterfall. Super fun though. But getting back in was difficult. I couldn't believe who awesome Ginger did on the river. I thought maybe she would start getting bored but she enjoyed it the whole time. There was one scary moment where my mom and Ginger (they were tied together) were headed towards the edge and there were some small rapids and Gingers tube went straight up and she nearly landed in my moms lap. Whew! I was starting to shiver real bad that my mom was getting worried and so we took a little break and instantly I felt better once I was out of the cold water. It's so much fun and relaxing to float the river. I'm so glad that my mom came with us and did it with us she's such a trooper.
