Zombie Games

I hear screaming coming from Justin's bedroom. Christopher comes hauling out of the room runs right into Justin.
"I saw something!" He says His eyes are big and wide.
"What? Jay ask
"It's under the bed." Christopher yells
They both bend down to take a look under the bed. I'm peeking around the corner I hear Christopher say "It's okay Jay It's a dryer sheet."
They both go back pretending to shoot each other and zombies. Children imagination are wonderful even with the age gap between my boys. It's breathtaking to see how close they are. Their brotherly bond is strong. They fight like hell sometimes but never hold a grudge. They do just about everything together. They are growing up just thinking in two weeks Justin will be twelve years old going into six grade in August. Christopher will start preschool as well. My boys will always be my babies. They are my heart and soul. I'm a very proud momma. Even if my nest is slowly emptying.

Storms

Last night was about the most scariest thing we have been in since last summer when my hubby had to pull off the road in North Dakota with a bunch of people at a gas station to avoid the tornado that hit.

It was crazy receiving texts from him that read.
If you wake up and see the news. I love you. 
The next one reads
I'm  okay I was able to get off the road.
Then he sent a picture 
and the last text reads 
I love you and the boys. This above picture was from a guy he worked with that sent it to him. There is no place to go the houses are all mobile homes. We stayed in an RV for the summer. The land is flat where it looks like the sky could swallow you whole. Traveling is by far the most exciting thing to do. Our drive there to North  Dakota was storms all the way. As we left one state or town a tornado hit. This year driving to New Mexico was the same. We hit a storm in Louisiana. Thank God we were driving  away from it. Last night I made my decision not to make our home in Carlsbad permanent. It will stay a summer home to visit our family. 


The road was flooded on both sides. I was for sure we we're going to get stuck in the water. The hail was so big and thick look like snow on the streets. The city has no draining system at all. I took a video mind you it's a two lane road with no where else to go. www.facebook.com/aquarium maintenance 
The kids thought it was really neat. Us not so much as hubby drove and I took pictures to keep my mind clear. Tree branches were down everywhere. I think I will stick to the Florida weather instead. Bright side we were in the same car with hail dents from last year storm. A few more doesn't matter.

Project Playground

The one thing I love about traveling is seeing all the different parks we come across. This  park Project Playground is absolutely amazing minus all the trash that covers it. We have  been at our home in Carlsbad New Mexico for about a week. At the beginning of the week we ran into a bunch of ten year old and younger slinging around profanity like you would not believe.  You can tell by the way they were acting they clearly learn that from home. Children see and hear what their parents do. If you are one who thinks cussing around  your kids is okay. I can ensure you that it's not pretty on the playground. I can tell you my hubby and I will ask your child to watch their  mouth. (They where also in the process of destroying the playground.) This case we did twice then told them if it continues we would call the cops to ask your child to leave. It's not cute in anyway. I don't  agree but that's the way you parent that's your right. They are future criminals in the making. In return they left which made the playground a pleasant place to have our children play. The other parents were happy too. 

Something  else that bothers me is all the trash kids leave behind that's including the adults who say nothing to their kids about putting trash where it belongs. This is a nice park keep it clean. Kids need a place to play not a landfill to slide in. Parents need to teach their kids to respect their surroundings. I counted 20 not 5 but 20 trash cans by the park. Not one adult nor child picked up after themselves. So we did this bag was just one of many we filled up in order for our boys to run around. 
If children don't have a great place to play they start to get in trouble. It's very unsettling how people treat one another as young as my four year old. Justin even ask a kid to watch his mouth because of his brother. The kid started to threaten Justin then stop when he seen us come around the corner. I'm happy to see another parent who as well spoke up. She had three small children with her. I teach my children to respect the earth and everyone in it.
Kids today need to have some kind of direction in life. Parents need to be more involved to show that this behavior just gets worse as they get older. 
Please respect others!
Please leave nothing behind but your footprints! It will matter in the end.
