you ready for this?

I married into a family that is OBSESSED with the movie What About Bob? This past weekend we took a special trip to Smith Mountain Lake to see the "what about bob house". Brad decided to re-enact several scenes from the movie since we were practically on the old set. He acted out the scenes and then dubbed the audio from the movie. Kaci had to be any extras since I was the camera man. We were rather impressed with her acting skillz! Enjoy the movie, Brad style!
Thanks again Bowman's for letting us stay at your amazing house for this trip, for feeding us, for helping us film and re-enact some of the scenes, for making Brad knock on the door of the house (so we could take all those fun pictures!). In reality we spent more time at the Bowman's than at the "house". They have an amazing set up and are so fun to spend time with!
We hiked in their own personal woods on trails they blazed themselves, ate a fresh salad from their garden, went kayaking, slept on a water bed (!), spent endless time out on their deck, played with their puppy Nitro, and laughed and laughed and laughed. {for those of you who have read Anne of Green Gables, they are "kindred spirits"} We wish we could go back to their house every weekend. On the way home we kept saying that this trip was a great last "Virginia adventure", hoorah! [tomorrow will be one month mark til I leave!!]

Looks like you had a good little vacation! Kaci is the best little actress!!! You should seriously get her in the industry! I've never seen or even heard of that movie but it looks weird. But that house is cute! And Alaska in a month!!! Exciting!! I actually know quite a few people moving there or that have recently moved there. Weird.
