Six Flags

Dell really knows how to show employeee appreciation! They decided to rent out Six Flags in KY for the day to show their employees how much they care. We got discounted tickets and there was a picnic area set up all day with free food and beverages! I really liked Dell this day. Cause, believe me, there were days I wasn't so fond. We traded Brynn for my lil bro Vinny that day and had a blast!

DS's are so much fun and a great distraction for the ride down.

Our first ride of the day was the Himalayas. You all remember this from the traveling carnivals. There's always one there. Obviously this is an action shot and very blurry! Logan did not want to ride this but had a blast once he was on it.

Next, on to the Flying Dutchmen. Who woulda ever thought that a giant dutch shoe that you can sit in and swing round and round would be so fun and relaxing.This is a view of Logan's first roller coaster! Thunder RUN!!!! It was one of those really awesome ole wood coasters that's got lots of hills and twists and turns. Don't worry Mimi, no loops!
I'm really not sure what was going through his little head here but I'm pretty sure he was nervous!

Ben & Jerry's makes it all better! Nuff said.

Vinny was all smiles on every ride and completely fearless! Logan, on the other hand, well he'll get the hang of it.

Vinny wanted to ride with me all day! Thank goodness he was my partner because Logan was having no part of riding with me. It was really cute why Vince said he wanted to ride too:
Vinny: Do you know why I always wanna ride with you?
Me: No! Why?
Vinny: Remember that time at Go USA that we kept beating Josh and Logan in the Go Karts? Yeah, That's why!
Me(in my head): Man I AM Awesome!! hehe

For some reason my car kept going in reverse during this! It made bumper cars very difficult. I just kept ramming into people backwards.

As we bring this session to a close I'd like to mention how much fun we had! The boys were troopers! They had a BLAST in the water park and were able to ride every ride. This is the perfect age for them to go because they are just getting tall enough to ride everything. Hopefully Dell will keep this up every year!

It's Football Time in Tennessee!

Yesterday was a Lazy Sunday! It was yucky outside and the wind was crazy! Summer bought Brynn this dress when she was born and we decided to see if it fits yet. Mind you, it's a 12 Month!! Then an impromotu photo session broke out and we made Logan put on his jersey.

This pic is absolutely hilarious and can be used for black mail some day! The girl loves to spit.

I just thought Logan's feet looked soooo big next to hers!

So the Titans ended up winning and all is right in the world. This will have to be a game day tradition now because they are obviously lucky outfits!

Labor Day Decker Style...

We love to grill out but haven't much this summer what with the new baybay and all. We finally got the chance to over the holiday weekend and man was it refreshing! It's always nice to hang out with friends and their kiddos.

Amanda, Michelle, Ann, Teesh, Carrie and baby McKane

Josh and Blake

Heather, Teesh, Carol and Jenn

The Kids minus Adam...Logan is soooo thrilled!ha

Out for the entire gathering!

Shell, Tiner, Me Auto and Jenn

Me and my Hubby. The Deckers
We have an AMAZING group of friends. I seriously don't know what I'd do without them. It was so nice to catch up with everybody and yes, Brynn slept through the whole thing. Her room is right by our kitchen where most of us congregated. We have some not so quiet friends who would say, in their not so quiet voice, "I can't believe she is sleeping through all this!" Me neither!

Instructionsfor a Decker Grill Out:

20 of your closest friends
6 kids
2 babies
2 preggos
BBQ chicken
oddly shaped mac-n-cheese (thanks teesh)
all the other fixins' you could imagine
and ofcourse beverages of your choice
Mix together and serve with a dash of lime

I just realized that we seriously need to get a guys group picture.


I feel like I'm all over the place right now. I've got soooo many projects I want to accomplish and so little time in the day. I'm attempting to knit. My first project is a cute hat for Brynn so I can get some pics made of her in it. I'm teaching myself Photoshop. Which, by the way, is no easy task! I've got a basic knowledge but no where near where I wanna be! I would love to make scrapbooks for the kids but just thinking about starting that makes my skin crawl. It seems so overwhelming to me right now. One day I tell ya. I am now, apparently, a Sparks Leader at Awana. I said I 'd be willing to help out because I know Logan loves it when I help in his class. However, I didn't think I was going to be a Leader!! I'm sure it'll be fun, I just have no clue what I'm doing. I think it's really important to show interest in your kids activities and be involved with them. It makes them feel good about themselves and will hopefully keep them on the straight and narrow later down the road *fingers crossed*. I'm sure there's other stuff I am leaving out but I'm so scattered right now I can't even think straight. Oh and I wanna customize my blog layout. Any ideas how to go about this?
Anywho, had to get that out. Have a Great Day!
