Our family spends a lot of time driving. In fact, Brady and I were laughing about it the other day, saying that when people ask our kids where they were raised, they'll probably say "I-5." And people will say, "Oh, you mean the Willamette Valley?" And our kids will say, "No, I-5. The FREEWAY." We do manage to have some fun in our travels, though, and a couple of weeks ago, Britt wrote not one, not two, but three really good stories! The one about his family was written in fun and shouldn't be taken seriously, of course (his sister is the grooviest sister in the world, after all, and we really aren't that crazy!), but they are all quite entertaining, and I think you will enjoy them.

Hi. My name is Britt Murray. I have the craziest family ever. The number one crazy guy is my dad. Second is my mom. My sister's not that crazy, but she's not groovy, either. If my mom and dad weren't crazy, my life would be a whole lot easier. I mean really. They're the reason I have to write this story!
Like yesterday, Mom and Dad called me and my sister to the front counter at Goodwill. This proves they are not groovy. They even make me scoop dog poop. Yay. How would you like to have poopy hands?
My mom is a big problem. I mean BIG. She's the reason I'm so sensitive. I get yelled at 10 times a day. Literally. No exaggeration. Oh and my dad, he says, "Hey, I'm Britt's dad" ALL THE TIME. I mean really! "I'm Britt's Dad." How would you like that? Oh yah, my sister. Like I told you, she is NOT groovy. She is always getting me in trouble. I mean always!
So anyway, now you know how crazy my family is. The only good thing is we live at the base of my mountain. But my family is embarrassing and NOT GROOVY!!! The End.

Now there's this Gold Mine run by skeletons. This Gold Mine has been around since 1001. It was called "Gold Wine." Now it wasn't always ran by skeletons. It once was run by real people. But the Queen blew it up. She blew it up because they stole her crown and there were still people inside. So that's how the people became skeletons. Now these guys have been mining it for years and finally they were out of gold. So they bought some gold and burned it. The End.

Oh no! A UFO is robbing all the town's corn! The town knew they had to do something, so they started throwing poison oak out at the UFO. But the poison oak started spreading on them! So they called the pharmacist, but he put them on ignore. Then an angry mob was waiting outside. The pharmacist knew what they had to do so they started to sing opera. Then the extra terrestrial left WITH ALL THE CORN!
