FaKebook Friday — Fall Colors, Poop, Barf and Hysteria

All these lovely posts about perfect family adventures and Pinterest worthy meals make me wonder about the story behind them.  You know, the version of the story we don’t broadcast on the WWW.

So I came up with the concept of sharing some of our behind the post dramas and I call it FaKebook.

FaKebook is the version of the story that you want everyone to see or know and Real Life is the version of the same story that you don’t really share for whatever reason…

Here goes…

[FaKebook Version]

Road tripping for the day! We are heading up the to mountains to see the fall colors!

Do you see any “fall colors” in this photo?

Ya well, apparently we were about a weekend late.

But since the kids were sick and tired of the “beautiful” drive… we let them get out and play. They look so much sweeter when they are not screaming their heads off in the back seat.

I obviously did not plan the outfits or dress them for a photo shoot, but it was a nice view so I thought I would try get a sib pic of the ragamuffins… they were thrilled, obviously. Frame worthy.



Finally we sat down to eat lunch and I was able to get a decent picture, I am fairly certain everyone is smiling.


Let me give you the brief drama about lunch… the kids hated it! The sandwiches were too dry, they weren’t hungry, and they just wanted to go home.

Fine then, get in the car. I don’t want to make anymore sweet memories with you either!

On the way home… there was poop, barf, and hysteria.

We were going to make an entire day out of it and go out to dinner on the way home but we used our better judgment and got those rascals back to headquarters as soon as possible.

We walked through the doors withered and beat up from such a lovely family daycation.

I don’t think we will try that again any time too soon but isn’t it amazing how the first photos, the few I posted on FaKebook, don’t quite tell the same story…


Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet, click here and like my Facebook page… I am usually good for making you feel better about yourself at my expense..

I know your email box is sacred and you have worked ever so diligently to protect it like a mother bird protecting her young…  but I really think you should leave your email address in the subscribe bar.

I cross my heart I won’t abuse being including in your circle of trust… I won’t spam you, I won’t sell your information, I just don’t want you to miss a thing!
