We're Back!

We're back and here is a link to all of the pictures:

Florida Vacation 2007

I'm busy trying to get caught up on laundry and cleaning the house. Adam did a good job of watering the plants outside and taking care of the dogs, but the house was just plain ole dirty...not his fault...I let it get out of control before I left.

The Beach

Today we went over to Cocoa Beach so Lillie could experience that. We had a great day, unfortunatly we all got a little burnt...especially Amie. I feel responsible because I'm her mother and also because I know how powerful the sun can be. :( Hopefully she will be better tomorrow. Sea World here we come!

Having a ton of fun!!!

As I write this post we are roling down I-75 just about to get on the Florida Turnpike (I borrowed Christian’s laptop)…about an hour away from Orlando. It’s sunny and very hot…just like it should be in Florida in June. We’ve been listening to some really fine music. Ya’ know how you feel when you listen to songs that were hits when you were in high school, and it takes you back to simpler times when your biggest worries you had were what you were going to wear that day to look cute…that’s what we’ve been feeling. I spent about an hour before we left downloading some great 70’s classic songs and burnt them on 3 CD’s. We have had a very nostalgic drive to say the least. Okay, this is really going to show my age, but they made some really great music back then: Foreigner, Boston, Journey, Styx, Bread, England Dan & John Ford Coley (?Joey picked that one out) Bee Gees, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Good Stuff, guys. Good Stuff. Takes you back, doesn’t it?!

Well, I had a great birthday on Tuesday...Joey & Lillie took me to Jim & Nick's BBQ (I totally love that place) and then we went home for cake and presents with Amie and Adam (Christian was at work). I am filling in answering the phones at Joey's office this week for someone on vacation and when I walked into my office that morning I was surprised to find a birthday balloon, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and about 100 post-it notes decorating my walls that said Happy Birthday with his trade mark little goofy face (he always signs cards with this really goofy smiley face). Joey had gotten up early and instead of working out like he usually does he went to my office and hand wrote each note...very thoughtful!

The next morning he totally surprised me again. I walked into the kitchen to find another bouquet of flowers and a card and wondered why he was getting me flowers for the day after my birthday. I opened the card and he reminded me that 25 years ago we had our first date (again, signing with the goofy smiley face). I cried! ...very thoughtful! How did I get so lucky? If you look closely the card has Mickey and Minnie on it because we are headed to Orlando to go to Disney World tomorrow (or as Lillie calls it "Mickey World"). Amie and Lillie are going with us, and we are so excited. I'm planning on enduring Mickey world one day, Sea World one day, and the rest of the week laying by the pool reading. Oh, and we are gonna run over to Cocoa Beach one day so Lillie can experience the ocean. Ahhh...can't wait!

Oh, and I

almost forgot...It's my's my birthday!

Checking In!

I'm not quite sure why my enthusiasm about blogging has wained. But anyways, it has. So I thought I would just start posting embedded albums for my family to see. So, here's the first album of a trip Lillie and I went on with my mom to Kansas over Memorial Day weekend for my mom's family reunion.
