An Airport Adventure

Brooke came for the blessing of Samantha. She stayed for five days. We love when auntie Brooke comes for a visit we always have so much fun with her. On Wednesday when she was getting ready to go home we had to get water so we stopped at the water store first. Next to the water store is a Krispy Kream doughnuts. The hot and ready sign was on and Brooke had to treat the kids so we went in for a dozen doughnuts. The kids loved the doughnuts.


Brooke looked up the question of the day on her phone and the kids all got a coupon for a free doughnut. Which they redeemed right then, but the manager let us keep the coupons for another time.

We stopped at Little Anitia’s for dinner. You can’t leave Albuquerque without stopping at little Anitia’s for some green chili.

After our yummy green chili we went to the airport. Brooke had been told that the airline can decide to let some family members accompany you to your gate. She asked at the desk and they let 4 of the kids go back to the gate with her. She bought them some candy as they waited for her to board her plane. The next day the kids were asking to go back to the airport with auntie Brooke.


Every young man needs a sword

Walker ordered a knife online from a company and they started sending catalogs. James loves getting the catalogs and looking at all the knives.  James has ordered from the company and is on their mailing list. 

The other day James got a new catalog in the mail.  He pours over the pages and looks at everything in the catalog.  In the latest catalog there was a replica US cavalry sword. He has wanted a sword since we went to Master of Influence. Kirk Duncan said that every young man needs a sword as a symbol of his manhood.

He decided to order the sword with his birthday money. The day came for the sword to arrive via ups.


He climbed the highest thing he could to watch for ups.

He was so excited to get it.


He has ran to show it to everyone he knows.
