In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.
We had breakfast at the cabin and then everyone (except
Tina) wanted to go to Starbucks before going to Lake Gregory to play.Doc said we needed to find a coin early
in the day, so he pulled through a gas station / convenience store.Brandon and I quickly looked inside the
store finding no coins.Doc and
the other three kids drove around the back of the station and found a
As we were walking into the grocery store (to get to the
Starbucks).Nick found a
penny.(Coin #2).After coffees, three of us walked
around in the parking lot and found a crack penny.(Coin #3).
Finally it was time to drive over to the lake.We only planned to be there for two
hours, but the three older kidz were having such a great time on the
waterslide.The boyz went through
the chute at least 8 times before they said the lines were getting too
long.Ashley kept on going.Jamie and I sought shelter in the
McDonalds for Lunch and Coins
By 1 p.m. tummies were hungry.The boyz wanted lunch at the Chinese restaurant, but it was
closed.I was outvoted 5 to1 on
where to go for lunch.They voted
McDonalds!I got one penny there,
Jamie two, and Brandon a dime.(Coins #4-7).
Walk Around the Lake
Back to the cabin for games such as Upwords, Jenga and Uno,
puzzles and table tennis challenges.
In the late afternoon we did a walk around the Lake.Ashley found a huge dead catfish.I found a dime.(Coin #8).Jaime and Uncle Doc meanwhile went to the grocery store
where they collected one dime and three pennies (Coins #9-12) plus two lbs. of
grapes (totally devoured before dinner).
The evening was spent at the cabin.Meatballs and pasta for dinner, games,
and then a private nighttime walk with each kid.
At 10 p.m. there were Angel Stories in the loft for bedtime
readings.Life is Good.
