Abby Doodles TV – Episode 10 – Season One Finale

Well, it’s finally coming to an end. Season one at least. Back in August of 2014 my daughter and I started making a some videos. It was nothing serious and we didn’t spend a lot of time on setup or anything of that nature. I wasn’t even sure how well this would all come together. To be perfectly honest, not much has come out of any of this. We probably spent too long in between each episode to actually build a following.

So here we are, a little over two years later and we are closing out season one. When we first started this show Abby did not know how to read at all and could barely write her own name. Now she’s writing some sentences and can read at her age level so we are ready to start planning for season two. Abby and I discuss her show a lot and we have some good ideas for season two, now we just need to put the plan into action and actually film some episodes. We are hoping to start the next season this summer, so be sure to subscribe and be on the look-out for that. There is talks of a new intro and theme song, but we will have to see about all of that. For now though, enjoy season one for what it is and expect some great new things in season two!

Our Escape to Fugitive Beach

FugitiveBeach-01Every now and then you wish you could just get away but you really can’t because you’re broke and “away” is thousands of miles and somewhere tropical… Well, this isn’t exactly that but it’s pretty awesome in it’s own regard. May I present, Fugitive Beach, which is located in Rolla, MO (about a 2 hour drive from St. Louis). My wife, daughter, niece, and myself took a little day trip to Fugitive Beach to see what it all about. It was very cool. When you enter you can immediately see this massive water slide. Then upon further inspection you can see two different platforms where you can jump into the water. There was a bar and grill there if you didn’t bring your own food. You cannot bring your own alcohol which I think is a good idea, but you can buy beer, etc at the bar there. You can also bring a cooler with food, soda, water, etc, but no glass and remember to not be a litter bug and pick up your trash.

It cost us $6 per person and we also had to sign a waiver before entering. Makes sense. This is/was a quarry. We setup our beach blanket, some chairs, and a cooler. Leaving all of that behind we took to the water. Everyone but my daughter Abby went down the slide and jumped off the cliffs. I don’t blame her. When I was her age I would only hold onto the ladder whenever I got into the pool.

Did I mention I took my GoPro? I didn’t? Then maybe instead of reading all of this you should just watch this instead…
