Florida Camping Trip

I'll admit the thought of sandy sheets was a bit unnerving. But, oh, this was such a gorgeous state park that it made up for any of the icky camping bits. If you think Florida is beautiful and you've only ever stayed in a condo then you should definitely take an afternoon visit to one of the many wonderful natural areas they have. We did venture out one day to the Gulfarium and had one horrendously over priced seafood lunch so there was some touristy stuff. Mostly we rode our bikes, hiked on sandy trails (awfully hard for the little among us) and spent our afternoons playing in the white sand.  We will definitely be heading back.

Juju turns 4

Slideshow here
What a great day she had. After she went to bed the night before, the big girls and Daddy and I decorated the house so she would wake up to a surprise. I did something I haven't done before but would highly recommend, we painted the windows with tempra paint and soap... free and she loved having rainbow windows. In the morning, Daddy went and got birthday donuts and we opened presents. We took the day off of school and let them play all day. And that night since I had the seasons worst cold and didn't feel up to much, we went to Chuck E Cheese. After that it was cake and some skype time. Thank you everyone for all the well wishes and presents.

littles in the flour

slideshow here

People always ask ... why the flour, why the shaving cream, why the mess? My answer is why not? It's soooo cheap and for now they think it's a treat to get hosed off afterwards. Anything that keeps them occupied for 45 minutes is worth the mess ... as long as it's non staining I'm okay with it.

I know there has to be a better way to do this. I can't keep up with this anymore and I don't even have the time to research what other options I have ... any ideas anyone? For now I am linking to (or trying to) a flickr slideshow of just a bulk upload of unedited pics. You have no idea how many times it crosses my mind that my lovely family often starts their day by checking here and ..... nothing for the past couple of months. Sorry all, I've been just a little busy. If Fletch didn't try and turn the computer off every time I sat down or alternately find every sharp device in the sewing room/office things might be a bit better. But alas, doesn't seem like that is going to happen anytime soon!
So try clicking this text and see if it takes you to the pictures of our winter bike ride adventure at a wildlife preserve not too far away.

I wis I got as excited about the dishes
