Father’s Day Weekend

Some people might say that the weather in the Ozarks is unpredictable. What they mean is that the weathermen have no idea what is going on from one minute to the next.

We went to Joplin for the weekend to celebrate the birthday of Kip, my youngest nephew. He was very excited and we had a great time having ice cream with a "sprinkles bar" – where you could choose the toppings you wanted from the little table. Emmeline did really well on each leg of the trip and slept pretty well most of the nights there. Today is here on month birthday and the has been to Joplin 3 times, visited multiple Mexican restaurants, Chick-Fil-A, Target, and the grocery store.

When we arrived home from Joplin we noticed the house smelled different. I am not sure what your house smells like, but ours usually has a nice Spring scent to it. This smelled like warm rubber tires and wet cardboard. I noticed the wet box first, then I looked up. Our ceiling was soaked. 

So was the dining room, and the kitchen, and our bedroom. I was not happy. 

Apparently we had a torrential rainstorm on Saturday evening right as the crew was putting a new roof on our house. And boy did things get wet. They have been very gracious and are getting it all cleaned up, because these things do happen, but it was a little scary when we first saw it.

Then, after watching the next Food Network Star,  Suz was on the couch with the baby watching HGTV, and so decided to put some stuff away from our trip. Then I decided to put together the new bed set my parents got Emmeleline for he shower, which had come in the mail just last week. So I put it all together, and I am ready to pick up the fitted sheet for the bed, and as I am lifting it up, something mushy splats all over the new carpet we had purchased. 

It was dog vomit, or stink. We are still not sure which one it was.


We got it all cleaned up, but the carpet is having some issues still with discoloration. So Isabel is on the naughty list right now.

This was a very memorable Father's day.
