Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Weekend Visit to Dad's

We went and visited my dad last weekend in the big city of Crane Texas (population just over 3,000). It was nice to get out of Big D for a change of scenery. Shelly and the kiddos met us over there for what turned out to be a pretty weekend.

Friday night we went to Shogun's for an always fun dinner prepared on our table. The fire is always the best part. ;) We had a great dinner and good conversation!

Saturday, Shelly and the kids got there. As always uncle Steve and aunt Lana had fun little gifts for the kids. This time we gave Riley his first cap gun (which we had to go buy more caps for b/c he ran out rather quickly). He was very impressed with the loud bang! We got Kaylin a little dress up kit that had jewelry, sunglasses and candy lipstick. She thought she was just about it and loved putting on that lipstick. It was adorable.

We also got them both Fun Dips which they had to eat outside (you're welcome Shelly for loading them up on sugar) hehe. That's what we're there for. Then, the kids showed us how they ride their imaginary horses around the yard which was adorable.

Riley has started his first year in soccer and showed us some of his cool moves. He's a little stud and that talent comes naturally (I'm not partial at all) ;).
After lot's of fun games and conversation it was time to head home. All in all, it was a good weekend!
