Underage Drinking, Jail, Atomic Wedgies: Just another Family Vacation with the Testosterone Zone

Kristen says she wants to hear it all. In fact she is having a My Sizzlin' Summer Vacation contest. Go to her site and leave a comment, you could win too. Make sure your comment says that the Testosterone Zone needs to win!!

Now, without further adieu,

Our Sizzlin' or Fizzlin' Summer Vacation

You have seen all the pictures.

You have heard all the tales.

This post is about what you didn't hear.
The truth behind the pictures.
The good, the bad and the ugly.

Ben hooked his first fish, oops, no not a fish, Ben hooked Hayden (our 4 year old son) in the EAR!

We had fun riding our bikes,

until we lost the keys to the bike lock. Luckily the ranger could do this.

The boys caught fish, we didn't bring a cooler, we put them in a bag, it leaked in the car, the car stills smells.

Gas was over $4.25 a gallon. Our Boy Mover (Yukon XL) sometimes gets as much as 12 MPG.

The boys get a little cocky when drinking beer.

The boys spent some time behind bars.

They had to take some summer school classes.

The "facilities" at the campground left something to be desired.

Apparently there are no child labor laws and the boys were sent to work in the mine.

The mine is a noisy place to work.

Griffin got stuck in a tree.

They fell from huge rocks.

The gorgeous waterfall also served as a package check station.

We forced them to eat ice cream often.

Hope your vacation didn't involve jail, summer school, underage drinking, fishing accidents or atomic wedgies. Can't wait to read all about it.

It looks like you had a lot of fun! Three boys always makes life interesting, doesn't it?

Tammy said...

Very funny stuff! My sister has 3 boys also and this is her life. The super-wedgie was TOO much. Poor guy.

Personally, the leaky ziploc bag made me laugh the most. You seem quite able to laugh at the days to come. :)

Looks like you had a great time! I have been on that very bridge behind the waterfall- about 2.5 years ago. I couldn't remember where it was at first, but I finally remembered. :-)

Glad you had fun.

Carol said...

Yikes about the fish.

Very funny insights though.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Haha! You have a great perspective. Looks like a fab vacation!

Elaine A. said...

These are the best kind of vacations, when you have great stories to tell (and pictures too boot!) And forcing them to eat ice cream. Just pure cruelty.... ; )

I want to go on YOUR next vacation... it looks more entertaining than most!

glad you all had such a great time.

Mamasphere said...

I have to say, I hope our next family vacation includes ALL of those things! You look like you had such a great a vacation.
