Hi, everyone!! I know, I know... I haven't been around much lately. Give me about a month and I promise I will be back to posting like normal. I miss it. :(

Anyway, here's another edition of Fly on the Wall for your enjoyment! 


We were taking a very long road trip and trying not to be bored so we were playing a game on Deanna's tablet. I think it was the DK Quiz Game. Anyway, I was driving, Deanna was reading the questions (multiple choice) and Joshua and I were trying to guess the answers.
She asked a question and then said all of this : zaggamaggataggaquagga
Joshua thought that was all one choice and hilarity ensued. Maybe you just had to be there. Or maybe we were just overly tired.... 


So we are staying in a hotel for a while and you know how the phones are, the old push button types. I wish I could have taken a video of Deanna trying to figure it all out! PRICELESS!!! 
Deanna - You have to put this part back down on the those things in order to use the phone again!!!


We were in the hotel room for only a couple of hours and had to call maintenance twice.
1st time - Colin put a Wii game in the safe and we couldn't get it open.
2nd time - Colin clogged up the toilet.
He has clogged it up at least 3 more times since then....


Cailey - Men are like wild monkeys.
Yes, dear they are.... Although, she never said WHY she thought that.


We were at the pool with some friends of ours when I commented on how bad Deanna's breath was. 
Me - What did you EAT?? My gosh!
Deanna - It's not that bad!
Me - Oh, yes it is!
Deanna - Will someone smell my breath??
Nicky - I will...... OMG! Sami, it smells like that sock you found at the bottom of the lake!


Deanna - Colin, wake up!
Colin - I wasn't asleep.
Deanna - Then you heard the awesome things we were talking about.
Colin - No, I guess I was asleep.


The wifi here is TERRIBLE!!! It's giving me such a headache!! 

Here are a few pictures to show you what we've been up to.

We've mostly been doing the 2nd set. ;)

Don't forget to buzz around all the awesome Fly posts!!!
