Election Day 2012

We just got back from a fun family morning. The hubs decided to make voting a family affair (um, can we say, awesome homeschool dad?).

It started off with breakfast of course. We tried a place in Wentzville we hadn't tried before, The Sunny Street Cafe. I give it 2 huge thumbs up! I had this amazing french toast with a crispy topping (made up of brown sugar, coconut, and granola... a heavenly trifecta if I have ever tasted one). And the kiddos got to have dinosaur pancakes. Nick had the most amazing pumpkin pancakes... um yeah... we will be repeat customers for sure!

Then we headed off to vote. It was fun talking to the kiddos about voting and what it means and we compared it to all of the bad kings we read about in the Bible, but those people had no choice who their leader was. The kiddos thought it was pretty cool. Max said he still thinks he would rather be a super hero when he grows up than president. Good call, buddy!

It was a super fun family morning that I am so thankful to have! I will be praying for our nation all day and will no doubt be up late watching the results. If you haven't yet, please get out and vote today! And remember and pray for those who have fought and are still fighting for your right to do so.

Also, this short little video by David Platt is a great little listen and reminder before you hit the polls.
