You Might be a Redneck....

That's right folks....
A truck pulling a snow mobile...

I should explain...A few years ago my dad acquired the snow mobile from "who knows who" because it was going to be trashed. The snow mobile is broken, but occasionally has a spell of functioning correctly. Today my brother Travis decided to run the machine for a bit. As expected, the machine died way out in the field, so my dad had to rescue him & haul him back to the house.

This past weekend the little boys and I took a visit to my hometown, Oakton, Virginia. It's been a while since my last visit and it's interesting to see that a lot has changed, but so much is still the same. I have such wonderful childhood memories there.

We were able to visit lots of dear friends there, including Janine Goode, Julie Doolittle, Manderino family & Thomas family. We also visited Oakton Ward sacrament meeting on Sunday. The boys were so excited and had such a good time that they stayed up as late as possible, woke up at the crack of dawn & only napped during the short car rides!!!!

Lisa's children - Caleb (2) & Melanie (4)

Jessica's little girl Ruby (1 1/2)

Don't ask me why I didn't take photos of my own children on the trip, but here are a few recent photos of them. =)
