Summer Living Having a Blast

See what I did there?  What I did was take some popular lyrics from a motion picture from back in...

Anyhow, we have some plans for this year's Staycations.

2 Biggies are popping up on the list this year

1.  The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
This is how it works - the Zoo is how they got my money - the botanical gardens are what keep you coming back again and again... "Quick dad, let's go look at those Rhododendrons!"

2.  King's Island
I haven't been there in about ten years.  This just seems tailor made for a family more known for their staycations than their trips abroad.  You could spend a day at the park, a day a Boomerang Bay and you could spend a day in line for one of the rides.  That's three days right there. 

Also in the works - The Murphy Family Olympiad II
I've been working on my three balloon float time and am excited about this year's new event - The let's see how long we can stay quiet while dad reads a book on his nook

Should be a great summer

Addition Addiction

I'm addicted to one thing
I want more entertainment, more electronics, more Bruegger's Bagels Herby Turkey sandwiches, more of Isaac's stories, more History channel, more money, more leadership, more tools, more hot water, more time with Annie, more...

More is a funny word.  Not - let's welcome to the stage More - kind of funny.  More like, "I was talking to more the other day and she really has an interesting way of saying things" kind of funny.

William Idol once said, "too much is never enough" and I think he snarled in the middle, but I wasn't sure how to convey that via weblog.

I'm addicted to excess.  I love more...but I'm not sure it always loves me back...
 Today maybe I'll cut back on a few things...bit by bit...I could keep writing, but that'd be more
