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 nickel! (Coin #1)
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 shade.
|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.
Total: 12 Coins P (8), N (1), D (3), Q (0) = $0.43
