hot like wasabi

at lunch today korb told me that his beans were hot like wasabi. thats funny.

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to one side and said I'm angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together, come back and see me
Three days since the living room
I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop, think
You'll think you're looking at aquaman
I summon fish to the dish,
although I like the chalet swiss
I like the sushi 'cause it's never touched a frying pan
Hot like Wasabi when I bust rhymes
Big like LeAnn Rimes
Becasue I'm all about value
Bert Kaempfort's got the mad hits
You try to match wits, you try to hold me
But I bust through.

Gonna make a break and take a fake,
I'd like a stinkin' achin' shake
I like vanilla,
it's the finest of the flavours
Gotta see the show,
'cause then you'll know
The vertigo is gonna grow
Cause it's so dangerous
You'll have to sign a waiver

How can I help if I think you're funny when you're mad
Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?
Well, you soon will
I have the tendancy to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of taking off my shirt

It's been one week since you looked at me
Threw your arms inthe air and said you're crazy
Five days since you tackled me,
I've still got the rug burns on both my knees
It's been three days since the afternoon
You realized it's not my fault, not a moment too soon
Yesterday you'd forgiven me,
And now I sit back and wait till you say you're sorry

Chickity China the Chinese chicken
Have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'
Watchin X-Files with no lights on
We're dans la maison
I hope the Smoking Man's in this one
Like Harrison Ford I'm gettin frantic
Like Sting, I'm tantric
Like Snickers, guaranteed to satisfy
Like Kurosawa, I make mad films
Okay I don't make films,
But if I did, they'd have a Samurai
Gonna get a set a' better clubs
Gonna find the kind with the tiny nubs,
Just so my irons aren't always flying off the back-swing
Gotta get in tune with Sailor Moon
Cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes
That make me think the wrong thing

How can I help if I think you're funny when you're mad
Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean?
You soon will
I have the tendancy to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of losing my shirt

Its been one week since you looked at me
Dropped your arms to the sides and said I'm sorry
Five days since I laughed at you and said
You just did just what I thought you were gonna do
Three days since the living room,
We realized we were both to blame, but what could we do?
Yesterday you just smiled at me
Cause we still got two days till we say we're sorry
It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry,
It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry,

palmers + carters at the lake

as promised.. more to myself than's my recap of our awesome weekend with the carters in altus. the pics from this post are probably still my favorites. but there are tons more to share. and the weekend was definitely a memory i dont want to slip away.

we left on friday evening around 6PM just as planned..

kennedy insisted on riding with marly.
we headed out of pine ridge estates and hit the rode bound for altus, ok. more specifically quartz mountain and lake lugert. we had no use for the resort because jaime's parents own a cabin on the lake. but there are great pics on their site of the area. {you know me..i mostly took pics of the little people.} after a quick stop at the dq in denton - where kennedy ate most of a dipped cone in about 30 seconds - we drove straight thru. the kids didnt sleep much. but they traveled well. in fact korb finally fell asleep about 20 min before we got to altus. holding his fishing pole.after stopping in altus to stock up on groceries for the weekend, we made it to the cabin and got them settled in for the night. then jaime, brye, kyle and i stayed up WAY late just talking. it was so nice. i cant imagine why we dont do it more often. seeing that we live 4 blocks from each other..
saturday morning - after they made a grand entrance. james and i (and momma kennedy) took the little boys to the beach while the big boys went fishing for a little while. then they picked us up on the boat and most of us enjoyed a ride across the lake. poor korb. he was apprehensive at first. but game to try out this boating thing.. until brye hit 'some big bumps' and then he was done. hated it from then on. every time we would stop to switch skiers/tubers he would say. 'i have to get off the boat' ...'i have to' ..'i have to get off this boat'. it was sad. but funny. and despite his lack of interest in water sports i think everyone got their fill. everyone took a turn in the water {except for a watcher :)} about half way thru the day we stopped on a beach on the other side of the lake for lunch. we made sandwiches and let the boys run around. they had a blast. i have to admit that kyle shot the photos in this slide show. i love them.

Click to play 'hey, thats my hat.'

a few more from lunch
just like the one above.. these are a dup's from my favorites posts. but they are my favorites. and totally worth posting again. there were a few sweet moments on the boat after lunch.
i think this pic of korb holding dada's finger is absolutely precious.
saturday evening after a long nap to recover from all the sun.. we had burgers and dogs on the grill and then we took a little walk. the boys had a blast. they both LOVE being outside. another duplicate.. but one of my favorites!

sunday morning jaime made delicious pancakes. forgot to mention the breakfast burritos from saturday.. they were AWESOME! then we went back to the beach for one last dip in the lake. ate some lunch. cleaned up {ourselves..and the house :)} and then headed home. we had such a great time. cannot wait to do it again! thanks for the invite carters!!!
