The boys woke up this morning to their last day of summer and their school cones. We started this tradition a few years back....it is kind of like Christmas Stockings, but a cone...filled with some school related goodies.

Billy, JJ and Mickey all did a 'mud run' at the Little Creek Navy base while we were in VA Beach....Mickey did an 8K (5 miles) with most of it being through sand. Billy and JJ did a 1 mile run. This all ran where the Navy SEALS train every day! They all did awesome!
We went to Water Country USA. Me and Billy and Mom and Dad and our friends, the MAZ's. There are two lazy rivers there that are a lot of fun. My favorite was Hubba Hubba Highway. There are a lot of water slides. Big Daddy Falls is the best one. Aqua Zoid is also fun. Everyone likes it so it is a long wait to ride it. If you ever go, ride that one first. Also go on Melt down. A lot of the rides are scarey, but not that much. A really scarey one is Rampage, but I did it. I love Water Country USA, but I also want to go to Great Wolf Lodge. Maybe for Harrison Day next year.

Yesterday was a cool holiday called 'Put a zucchini on your neighbors porch day' and we did it! (Yes, it really is a holiday.....google it, August 8th)So, it turned into a big battle with the K-Stars (our neighbors). We brought it over there and they brought it back a couple times. Once, they were trying to put it back on our porch and we saw them and JJ yelled, 'we know you have a zucchini'! It was so funny! We also left notes back and forth with them. JJ and I put on camo and jumped the other neighbors fence and ran through their back yard and jumped the K-stars fence but right then the K-stars saw us so we made a run for it and jumped over the fence. Later, when they were in bed, we brought the zucchini over...and we won the battle.

Billy and JJ are getting really serious about Cub Scouts, and they are going to start working on getting a lot of belt loop achievements. Many times to do this, they need to do a presentation to the Pack about activities they have learned about. This is the first one they will present this fall....on how to hike safely!

I got a new ipad app today and it gives you the radio, scanner and the weather. It is really neat. I learned about a car accident in G-Ville, OH and a fire in an apartment building in Hairsprinkle. And we also heard a heart attack in Hairsprinkle too and it has only been like 3 hours. That is not very long these days when there is a medical emergency run like every second of every day. We are mostly listening to 'Rock' County and the next county over...'A' county. - By Billy There is a big fire in B-water right now. We are sitting here listening to it, and it is bad. I do not know how it happened. The scanner is cool. We get to hear a lot of neat stuff. - By JJ
