Ice Cream, Gold Belts, and Nothing at the Pumps

Got Milk???

Yesterday we visisted the Purity Dairy Plant in Nashville....the kids had a blast, ate way too much ice cream at 10 in the morning, and learned lots of neat stuff about how it gets to the stores we buy it in......we got to watch through a window as the ice cream was dropped into the containers and packaged. It was a sad reality to me that we could not "tour" the plant where it is made because of 9/11....the FDA no longer will allow them to have unauthorized people where the products are made.....isn't that sad???? What is this world coming to that we would have to worry about someone anthraxing our Nutty Buddy's????? Afterwards, we stopped into Publix and let the kids pick a Purity product (we actually never buy that brand...too expensive!) but to bring the experience full circle we made an exception.....their choice? Nutty Buddys! And yes, I had one!

Maggie really liked the free scooper!

Karate Kids...

Last night we attended Karate graduation for all three of the kids.....they were each becoming Gold Belts! Whooo Hooo! We are so proud of them....this has been something they have each just devoured in interest and in goal setting. As Mr. Deaton (owner and founder....and 8th degree Black Belt) talked to the audience, I was so blessed to hear him speak so openly about being a Christian! We knew he was, but it was so refreshing to see someone sit in a crowd of people with diverse backgrounds and I'm sure beliefs, and so boldly proclaim his Heavenly Father! Next become orange belts within 8 weeks! Here they are with David Deaton after graduation....come on, sing it with me...."I am a man, who will fight for your honor"....

No Gas
After a Graduation Celebration at El Rey (our favorite Mexican), we were on our way home and experienced the creepiest thing......ALL of the gas stations on our ENTIRE way home were COMPLETELY out of ALL gas except diesel!!! Hurricane Ike was about to hit land in Texas and already we were seeing the effects of it here in Tennessee! Thank goodness Adam thought to fill up while out yesterday!
