Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone

Me and Josiah are True Americans :)

4th November 2008

He was proud to trot into Grandma’s house this morning saying, “Gwama, I boated!”

I was all stocked with 4 kinds of snacks, books, MagnaDoodle for scribbling, and even my iPod with a new Little Einsteins video on it in case I’d have to wait a while.  But the hardest part for us was navigating the busy parking lot to get in and out!  It only took us 10 minutes to get checked in, fill out our ballot and have it scanned.  He’d hardly even gotten through his first snack.  Then we proudly wore our “I voted” stickers back to the car.  When I told Josiah we were going to vote this morning, and he thought we were going to a BOAT.  So it was a little bit of a disappointing experience for him.  Thankfully, Krispy Kreme redeemed the experience with the free star spangled chocolate donut that we picked up on the way to Grandma’s.

I didn’t get any pictures, but here’s a glimpse back in time to Brian’s experience with Analise 4 years ago…

    And in case you wanted another voting story, this one at my ever-favorite Rocks in My Dryer is HILARIOUS…

    Add me to the list too … on our way home from dinner at my parent’s house, we had to drive right by the polling place. There was still 5 minutes left to go before the polls closed and there was hardly anyone there. We all went in (Kristine, Analise, and Josiah) and I was able to vote without waiting. I did have to go back for a second ballot after I started to put checkmarks in all the ovals. Oops!
