Vacation Pics

Happy Memorial Day to you and yours.  If you have anyone in your family that has served for our country, I'd like to say a big "THANK YOU" to them & go ahead and hug them for me too (if you don't mind).

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting some of our vacation pictures from last week.  I still have another camera to download, but those will have to wait.

We (meaning my husband) decided that he wanted to go down to the Tampa/Clearwater area of Florida this year for our vacation.  So, I did what any good wife would do & washed all the clothes, packed the bags and off we went.

While there, we went to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island.  The kids had a blast and it was a great way to spend a few days.  I have to say that even in May the weather was extremely HOT and therefore, Adventure Island (a waterpark) was our favorite place to hang out.

Take a look at some of the fun.......

Busch Gardens Tampa:

(B is in the first seat on the last row - just pure luck that I got his picture.)

G patiently waited while her big brother rode the scary rides.

Adventure Island:

We had such a great time.  I wish we didn't have to rush back for baseball tournaments but we were kind of missing our puppy and I definitely think he missed us.

If you're ever in the Tampa area, I highly recommend both parks - they were a lot of fun.

Enjoy your Memorial Day (we've got thunderstorms).

It's been a while, but.....

..........we're back!

What's that?  I didn't even tell you we were leaving?

Surely that didn't happen.  I've been such a good blogger lately.

Oh, wait.  Now that I sit down and think about it......we have had a lot going on, so it might have slipped my mind.

Ok, I'll tell you now.

We've been on vacation in the Tampa/Clearwater Beach area of Florida.

It was so beautiful and we had so much fun.

When I'm not rushing out the door for a baseball tournament, I'll download our pictures and tell you all about it, but for now - hope you're doing well & I'll be by for a visit soon.

I'm so glad summertime's here.....*squeal!*

Beautiful Home Tour

Every now and then, I'll find a beautiful home highlighted in our local magazine Greenville TALK.  

I was browsing around this morning and this is what I stumbled on.  

Are you ready to see?

Come along for a quick tour.

Well, that completes our tour.

So, tell me your thoughts on this property.

Is it everything you've dreamed of having or do you find it a bit cold and impersonal?

I can tell you that one major issue I have with this home is that it's not wired for TV's or Internet access to ensure that they will spend time doing other things. (Gasp! - No computers??)  If this was my house, that would definitely have to change.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek - have a great day.

Enjoying Spring

Hello there.

Sorry I've been MIA.

We've just been busy.... finishing school, curriculum shopping for next year, painting, planting, going to baseball games, gymnastics practices, mowing grass, washing cars and dogs, reading on the porch and basically anything but blogging.

I just haven't had the desire to post.

I think about it - I just don't do it.

I am still visiting and keeping up with you, though, so don't you stop too.

I'm sure I'll be back soon.  As soon as I get one project finished enough to take pictures.

Don't forget to enjoy your Spring's going to be a hot one here today - 90 degrees! Woohoo!

Take care & I'll be by for a visit soon.
