Evidently a place that I remembered as funny twenty years ago has gone from being entertaining to raunchy. I was appalled at some of the things that were written on the hats. Kyle walked out of there and said "that was the worst place ever!" He said the portions were small (cardinal sin in Kyle's eyes), they were rude, and they said I was old! Ha!
Mike and I walked out of there commenting that we would never return because clearly that restaurant does NOT share our values. Thankfully also they had sports on their TV's and my boys spent more time watching hoops than reading some of the inapproriate hats. (For the record my hat said Ms. Trailer Park 1992)!
Besides quality family time, the highlight of the trip for the kids was the penguin exhibit. Since Seaworld Hope has a little penguin obsession going on and she LOVED watching the aquarium staff feed the clan of penguins. It was precious and we had to pry them away. The penguin that kept showing off in front of us was named Ricky which was Mike's Dad's name. That gave us a smile.
Today of course was spent at church. Today at church we talked about all the awesome things God did in 2013 while we look ahead to what God will do in 2014. It was an awesome message. The service was closed with the praise band and congregation singing David Crowder's song, How He Loves. I was so overcome in thankgiving for all the memories, fun, and happy times our family was blessed with in 2013. We do not know what 2014 has in store for us, but I was overwhelmed in thanksgiving in the ways that God blessed our family in 2013.
