My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:





Gv finished up her 4-H year with one of her favorite projects--a tie-dyed t-shirt using Sharpies and rubbing alcohol!





The classic last-day-of-school photo that totally shows off this girl's personal style.




G and I have known for years that this girl HAD to try musical theater. It took a while to find a program we could afford, but she tried it and of course loved it and her first official show is in the books!





Our 4-H year finished strong with some fabulous group classes that were full of hands-on fun.



This year's birthday was a comedy of errors, but all ended well after some fabulous shakes with Grammy and Papa.


And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:



We went to the zoo and happened to catch the Komodo dragon feeding (which only occurs every 6 weeks). This is the face you make when you realize that lunch just days before Easter is a bunny...



Our annual family Easter photo.


We enjoyed another day at the zoo this month (trying to get several visits in before the heat makes being outside here impossible) and Gv especially enjoyed the carousel.



She's been back on the ice for only two months, but had loads of fun at a friend's birthday party, which was a glow theme.


And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:



We camped with friends overnight on Fat Tuesday... 


...had a birthday celebration with my parents at a waterfront restaurant...


...collected a TON of free birthday food from various restaurants...


...and explored some unique caves in a section of the state a bit north of us.

It actually was the first month that felt fairly normal in two years!



And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:



February means State Fair time around here and besides entering 5 events in the Creative Living & Baking contests, Gv and a 4-H friend volunteered to help on opening day in the "Little Farm Hands" building.




We went back to the fair as a family a few days later and had our usual fun.




The local power plant attracts manatees to its warm waters in the winter and we spotted one from the observation boardwalk! 



We discovered a new park nearby that was HUGE and had SO many fun things to do at it (obstacle course, workout machines, skateboard & bike course, splash pad, unique playground & more!) We couldn't believe that we'd never come across it before! 

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:



We dropped off the rest of this year's entries at the State Fair, but Gv still spent some time on practice batches of her muffin entry for the baking contest (submitted once the fair starts.)




Random life photo -- one of the many requests I get each month to "Quick! Take a photo of me hugging April!"




The local preserve held a tree celebration (we even got free trees!) and this activity where the kids got to be trees was loads of fun, although Gv wasn't too thrilled to learn she was caught in a storm and couldn't grow any more!



The rink celebrated its 5th anniversary by throwing a gala. We got all gussied up and asked our personal photographer to take a photo before we headed out the door.



There's a museum at a nearby college that we've been meaning to check out for forever. A student of Dali's was exhibiting there, so we finally managed to swing by and see it. Gv was able to "get" the art so much more since she'd visited the Dali Museum earlier this year.

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
