They Rode a Camel

First off, I wanted to pre-post some stuff for the weekend. Like my "Sing, Sing a Song Saturday" post. It just didn't happen. It was a busy week last week!

Do you ever say, "Man I wish I had my camera?" That was me once this weekend.

This weekend we drove 5 hours to Moberly, Missouri to see Grandma and Grandpa Apel. It's near Columbia, Missouri.

I registered the boys and their cousin on that side to go to the Lowes Clinic. I thougth Grandpa would like to build a little something with them. The problem is, is that he can't stand in one spot for long. He's had back and knee problems. We didn't know if we should go, or not. We decided to go because the boys were stir crazy; meaning they needed something to do. Grandpa's answer, "No." turned into a, "Yes I'll join you."

It was rush, rush getting out of the house, so I neglected to grab my camera.

On our way back to their house. We stopped to give the boys a camel ride at a petting zoo.

We got crappy pictures from Daddy's cell phone. I wish I would have gotten good pictures of Grandpa helping the boys with their Lowes Clinic project and the camel ride.

I did happen to get the boys with Grandpa Apel later on. Grandma Apel was hiding in the kitchen.

 Daddy had to close his eyes. When I went to take a 2nd shot, Isaak ran off.

I've done that so many times walked out with a camera.

Don't you just love the Lowe's clinics that you can do them anywhere! I'm so glad grandpa went along what a great experience!

The camel ride sounds like fun!

Ha, we were in the same boat this weekend. I forgot my camera too. My post today has a crappy phone shot as well lol. Oh well, I'm sure there are some great shots in everyone's memories from this weekend!

Okay,.... I want to know if the camel smelled? My daughter rode an elephant one time and it really smelled.

Oh how cool! I would totally have done that, but I think my boys would have been scared LOL.
