A Ho-Hum Weekend...NOT!

Thursday, we headed to the first home our older kids knew...Binghamton, NY!
Finding frogs in Grandma's pond...

He-e-e-e-ere Froggy, Froggy, Froggy!

Me and my girl hangin' out bythe pond! (Just puh-lease don't get pond water on me! Ick!)

Then it was off to Spiedie Fest! One of our favorite things to do in Binghamton!

We picked up an extra kid along the way... lol... isn't that the scariest mannequin you have ever seen?

These are Butterfly Potatoes...sort of fries and chips all in one. This stack was about 4" tall, I left my foot in the picture for a reference, I don't normally eat with my feet.
Up.....

Up.....

and AWAY!

My favorite balloon this year!

... and this is what we do when the ride is OVER.... ...and this is what we do when the little 'ride-running man' falls for the crocodile tears and gives us another ride, ON THE HOUSE!
...more balloons....
...then we stood in line in 90 degree weather for half a lifetime a little while and met Demi Lovato (co-star of CAMP ROCK on the Disney Channel)

...and we almost died in a lightening storm braved the weather during the second half of the day to meet Mitchel Musso from Hannah Montana!

...and then Mommy pretended to have camera problems so she could stare just a little bit longer at a beautiful hunk o' man Ace from American Idol happened upon our picnic and we got to meet him, too!

So, how's that for a weekend? Not too shabby, huh?!
