Some Friday Fun

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

'Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.

I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'For reading a book,' she replies.

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her again.

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with Sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the game warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

Week of Upcoming Giveaways

The past few weeks have been very difficult on our family! Scott lost his job a few weeks ago. I'm still trying to adjust to him being home and our wedding plans will have to change completely. We're still getting married but we'll have to give up the honeymoon and keep it simple. My sister, who is one of my bestest (bestest is a word because I like it) BFF's, is moving to North Dakota in just a few short weeks. I will miss my niece and nephew dearly but I know they must go where the jobs are so they can support their family. I need to end this week of a good note.

So here it is: Next week is going to be a week full of giveaways at All American Mommy! I have three separate jewelry giveaways, super awesome products for your family and a nanny cam to giveaway too. All of this will start over the weekend so check back often!

Next week is going to be awesome!

Disney on Ice

We experienced Disney on Ice last Sunday. This was my first experience and I was thoroughly impressed! Haley and I went with a good friend and her daughter, Katelyn. The girls really seemed to enjoy the show!

I cannot even imagine the amount of time and money that goes into these productions. The characters have a great talent for ice skating and the costumes were beautiful! The entire show was far beyond my expectations! Special thanks to Feld Entertainment for sending us to the show!

Disney on Ice was a great time and memorable experience! I highly recommend these shows and I think it’s a fun and great experience for the entire family.
