Been a while

It's been awhile since anyone has posted on the blog. I guess we get to busy with life. We have been having a blast since we left Georgia. Not to say that Georgia wasn't fun but it got a bit mundane after awhile. It was beyond time to move on. Fun in the sun is were it's at today. We spent some time in St. Augustine. WOW!!!! It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I absolutley fell in love. The campground was in the middle of nowere and we had the invasion of deer ticks which was not fun but what fun would it be if everything was always smooth sailing. I haven't a clue but I'd like to try it sometime. Animal visitors to our campsite was not uncommon and Frank the racoon came to visit me every night. Frank was fearless. He laughed at me I swear. He gaurded the bus door one night and I couldn't get inside. Fearless Frank. I was NOT ready to leave. I was in paradise. I wish I could figure out how to get pics on this blog. jacque is going to have to show me. Alas we had to leave ):
We almost ran outta gas in the middle of the night driving through alligator country. No gas for miles. God must have been watching out for us because we should not have made it to the gas station. We were beyond empty. Never a dull moment.
We spent a day at the fair were dennis was performing. Been a long time since we have done anything like that. It was a blast. the kids had sooooo.... much fun. they rode the rides till they closed down. I would have been sick if I spun that much. It was funny watching them walk crooked after getting off a ride.
Jacque got to go to a concert with her dad. I got dibs on the next one. I love that she is to young to go by herself. we have an excuse to go make our ears bleed and see a live show that you know you would find a reson why you couldn't go otherwise. I am still waiting to hear if he behaved himself.LOL.

blah blah blah

Last weekend I hung out with some girls my age. They were renting one of the cabins because it was one of their birthdays. I got to spend the night with them and we tried to build a fort on the playground, but when the parents went to the cabin to go potty and we weren't there they freaked out and we had to go back inside, but it was fun.

A couple nights ago we went and hung out with the owners and some of the other people that work here. One of the owners kids ran outside with a cereal box and a lighter and started a fire in the fire pit. When it started going out he went back inside at got more trash, after that all the boys were going in and out with trash, and then they started gettting trash from the garbage cans around the campground. it was pretty funny.

We went to Cave Springs Georgia on Friday to see a cave. It was kinda small, I was expecting it to be a lot bigger, and have water dripping from the ceiling or something, but my said it was a dead cave. They had an underwater spring, and supposedly it's the cleanest water source on this side of the pacific.

Last but not least, I added a couple of things to my BeHappyKid store, so you should definately go check that out.

Waco Fall Fest

So yesterday was the Waco Fall Fest. I don't think I've ever seen that many people in one place in this town since we've been here. It was really hot so we didn't stay most of the day because everyone was complaining that they wanted to go.

They had a talent show later on that Lorenzo and I had already signed up for, I only signed up because there were no other musicians and he needed someone to compete against. I had to do an easy song because I had less than 2 days, I ended up playing "When I Come Around" from Green Day.

Everyone in talent contest was a singer! Most of them were really good, but they had 3 old ladies judging, supposedly they had all worked in the music business for a very long time, but who knows how long ago that was. It was all country, but they not once chose the people that actually deserved to win. The singers were divided in age groups 15 and under, and 16 and up. For the 15 and under group, the first girl played guitar and sang and in my opinion she was the best. The girl that got 1st place was alright, but the girl who got second place sang the star spangled banner and in my honest opinion, she was absolutely terrible, but, to each his own.

For the 16 and up group, they did a little better when they picked the winners. They chose some girl that had great stage performance for 1st place, a barber quartet for 2nd, and an amazing singer for 3rd. I think the barber quartet or the girl who got 3rd should have won and my dad thinks the same.

When it was my turn to play I couldn't hear the music at all so I sounded like absolute crap! I could only feel the bass drum and it screwed up the whole song. Supposedly one of the judges was giving the sound guys dirty looks when he tried to turn it up. So I was ready to just collapse when I got off the stage.

When Renzo went up he said he couldn't hear the music all that great either, but he still did a whole hell of a lot better than I did.

They called us both up to the stage and Renzo got a 1st place trophy and $100 and I got $25. It was definitely an experience, I can tell ya that. We ended up splitting the money, both because it was an unfair competition and also because he couldn't have done it without me. So I guess that means I get to go to my Flyleaf concert. YAY!

When we got back we had ice-cream and root beer with everyone up at the office to celebrate. All in all it was an interesting experience.

Day trip to Talladega National Forest and More

Things were getting a bit stagnat for awhile. Everyone was getting restless, wanting to move on. We decided we have to venture out. Fear of breaking down yet again couldn't continue to hold us back. So we all took a deep breath and hoped for the best. Happy to report we made to Alabama and back with no problems except for a scare that the brake problem was not yet fixed properly. Turned out it was just from having to use the brakes a bit more going up and down all the hills. I think my heart skipped beat when Dennis said STOP! I smell breaks again. Thankfully all was okay.
We hiked to what was supposed to be waterfalls. Well.... we didn't find much in the way of waterfalls but it was beautiful and we had a blast climbing on the rocks and some of us took a shower in the what was flowing. It was an awesome day and rechared us all.
We are getting antsy and wanting to move on, but it looks as though we will be hanging around till November. Have to secure some cash and possibly another work camping gig. We shall see what is in store. No more plans set in stone since God seems to have other plans and it trips us up. Just going with the flow from here on out.
I would post pics but seems I can't figure it out. Gonna have to have Jacquedo it for me. In the meantime if you want to check out some pics of our day you can head on over to my website candidcapturephotography.com or candidcapture.redbubble.com or even find me on facebook.
We did meet a family travelling fulltime. They got us beat. They have six kids. Glad to have some kids during the week. Jacque has girls her ageto hang with a couple of days. Good things are happening. May God keep us on the upswing.
Hope everyone is having an awesome time in whatever they are doing and werever they are.
