"Come back here, E. Don't go that way. We are walking the other way!"
Some of her traits I will appreciate more when she's an adult and causing problems for other people (like the government!)
A fuzzy pic but worth it. Fuzzy b/c Butters was pulling on the cameraman's arm.
Baby retrieval-we got tired of it. We were ready to return to our baby proofed house, but the trip was well worth it. I didn't realize how stressed and unhappy my DH was until I saw him having fun-unstressed and happy! He was even doing cannon balls in the pool. Now, he wants to buy a boat. I told him we need a driveway first!
We spent a day out of the direct sun at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. A wonderful little rehab sanctuary that was worth the price. DH went deep sea fishing on the last day. My sister took the kids to the park while I packed and cleaned, and then we all went to a park, it sure is easier with two moms. We miss Florida, but since I've got gobs of pictures we won't soon forget it. Plus, we've had several days rain free here and we've been living it up-finally getting in the yard to make improvements, went to the Zoo, sparked up the grill. It's Spring around here and it feels that way-we have a second chance and our rough winter and health problems are no longer. Time to blossom again!

I can't believe it's been a week since the trip already! I almost didn't survive this week. The baby is still on East coast time and insists on waking up at 6 am. I would appreciate at least another hour. Plus, I'm hormonal and bitchy-my clue was when I made buttered popcorn and wanted to sprinkle peanut M&Ms on it!
In the "Smile" photo of E at the top, the blanket was made by P.Mookie, my most faithful blog commenter! You can see the bruises on her forehead, she learned about concrete the hard way.
What did I knit on the trip? I started two new projects another gnome hat for the plane rides and a claptois in cotton for the hot weather down times. Hat is done, claptois, not even done increasing. I'm pretending everyone was wondering that and couldn't start their weekend without a knitting tease. Ha.
We hiked in the everglades and saw some alligators (mostly in the parking lot).
Sister, Brother and Cousin loved looking at spiders, bald eagle nests and reptiles.
E was unsure of some gaps, she didn't like walking on some of the boardwalk and avoided the gaps....
But, had no troubles running along other spots. (This is one of the few Aunt Mere photos, she does not like her picture taken).
Here we are, covered in sunscreen on a cloudy day and dealing with hair issues, oh, that was just me!
