CBS: Follow the Money Investigation "How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?"

Friday night CBS ran a story "How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?"; seeing as we are the parents of a Vaccine Injured child, we are well aware of the ties as it is evident in their behavior. It sickens me that all this money is being given to push the agenda of vaccinating and making sure the medical community is behind the Big Pharma train as it comes barreling down the tracks on our children with these unsafe vaccines. It is obvious to me, a parent of a child that was standing on the tracks when the train came by, the reason they are doing it... 

If the vaccine manufactures and the medical community that stands behind these manufactures (with their thick wallets) are 100% positive that vaccines do not cause injuries, why won't they release the data and allow testing by independent, non-bias, no tie to Big Pharma researchers?

I will say this, in Big Pharma's defense, if they did allow the truth about vaccines and their role in the injury of Tens of Thousands of children, there will be backlash, retribution will be demanded, and the public will demand action. 

Until then, the best action for them is to continue the cover up.

And for now, the parents of children that have been injured by childhood vaccines will be the only ones realizing there is going to be backlash, that are looking for retribution, and trying to let the public know what is really going on.

The truth in the matter is this, until you have a child (or know a child or family) that has been injured by a vaccine, your eyes will not be open to what is really going on. Until our daughter was injured, we were clueless... just letting our children stand on the train tracks.

Orlando trip to Aquatica & SeaWorld w/ the Hoiberg's

Last weekend we packed up the kids, Grandma & Grandpa, & Kate; and we all headed down to Orlando for a weekend of fun at SeaWorld. We headed out Friday night after work and made our way south. We stopped for dinner in Palm Coast, and seeing as it was Friday, we found a pizza place. The pizza was great and the kids were in rare form. I took some funny pics of Laura there. Afterwards we made it back on the road and arrived in Orlando. The kids were awake and after we were checked in and settled, we went for a walk down International Drive to Friendly's for some well needed ice cream...

Saturday morning was an early rise seeing as we were heading to Aquatica, SeaWorld's new waterpark. We purchased tickets the night before which allowed us to enter the park an hour earlier at 8am. This turned out to be the best decision we made. By 9am, the park was filling up, and by that time, we already had a locker, had found some chairs to set our towels, & were already in the water. By 11am, they had closed the doors to the park...

We were able to take the girls on several different slides in addition to the ones in the kiddie sections. The park was amazing; they had several areas for the kids. One of everyone's favorite was Roa's Rapids which was a lazy river... that wasn't lazy. It was great, they kids strapped on their life vests and we all jumped in and went for a wild ride around the river several times. Everyone had a blast and the weather was great, we had an overcast day and the sun wasn't beating down until noon time, just before we left the park.

We left Aquatica & headed back to the hotel for some much needed naps. Afterwards we rounded everyone up and headed out for a nice dinner before heading to SeaWorld for the evening. Once we arrived at SeaWorld we made our way to the Wild Arctic where we took a trip to the South Pole. We walked around the South Pole for a while before heading to Shamu Stadium to see Shamu Rocks. This is one of our favorite shows and they only do these shows during the summer when the park is open for extended hours. Then we made our way to the other side of the park to ride Kraken before heading home for the evening.

Kraken is SeaWorld's amazing Roller Coaster; it is probably one of the best coasters I have been on. I found this video on YouTube, if you've never experienced Kraken, this is worth watching: Experience Kraken

Sunday morning came along and we packed up from the hotel after breakfast and made our way back to SeaWorld. We spent the afternoon in the park taking in the Sea Lion & Sea Otter Show as well as the Whale & Dolphin Show. Later we took the girls over to the kids area where they rode the Shamu Express, the kids roller coaster, and some of the other rides. We headed out just after noon and grabbed a quick bite to eating before making the drive back to Jacksonville.

Happy 4th of July from the Hoiberg's!

Happy 4th of July!

Ok, so the 4th of July has come and passed, but what would a 4th of July Blog entry be without pictures?

This past Friday we went to a 4th of July Bar-B-Que with friends and family from our church. Afterwards we all headed down to Mickler's Landing Beach Park to watch the fireworks. This was actually the first time we had Caitlyn up to watch the fireworks for the 4th of July. Previously she didn't care too much for the loud noise, but that is no longer the case. Caitlyn sat and watched them all and was having a great time. Laura of course had a blast and fell asleep as soon as we started heading home.
