home again... jiggity jig
We're home! Did you miss me? :)
We had a good time in FL visiting family. It was a little crazy and a little chaotic, but there were 12 of us in one house and that just happens to be my family.
We love each other anyways. :)
It was so good to see family members that we haven't gotten to see in a long time, really good.
I hope you enjoy the pictures (and commentary.)
I enjoyed all the amazing flowers around the house. These are "Bird of Paradise" (I think)Angelia's banana tree with baby bananas on it!
One day we went to visit the town of Mt. Dora and we had lots of fun browsing through shops and enjoying the most delicious weather.
The best frozen coffees ever! I'm so not kidding. I would go back to visit, just to have another one. :)
Really neat iron (and copper?) gate. I loved the roses.
Amazing looking Shepard's pie through the bakery window.
Sunlight through the trees
Rosie and Mike, so happy
looking down the hill to the lake at the foot of the town
not sure what these are, but really pretty
another "not sure" but such a pretty vine-ing flower
Lovely bougainvillea, it was everywhere
Gorgeous flowers but check out the thorns on the stem! Just a friendly reminder to look and not touch!
When we came home in the evening we enjoyed glasses of wine and books by the pool.
Sadie~Rose watching the pool action from the sidelines.
Some enjoyed evening swims
and Olivia playing in Hershey's bed.
Another day Mike, our girls and I went to Wekiwa Springs State Park which was amazing.
We found bear tracks by the walkway. It was so strange to be in central sunny FL, and be all bundled up in coats (it was 60 degrees at noon), walking through sand, out in the country, seeing cactus, and bear tracks. So strange, but fun. :)
We went back to Mt. Dora in the afternoon to visit the great knitting store and cupcake store. I had a chocolate cappuccino cupcake. Yum.
Olivia and Mike devoured theirs before I could hand off the baby and take pictures.
I had a productive trip home. Knitting and books on iPod.
We had to stop and give Rose a little snack of sweet 'taters
and guess what welcomed us?
Home sweet South Carolina!
Thank you, Leland and Angi for having us and putting up with the commotion!
Olivia's already talking about next time and I'm pretty sure Rose is missing Hershey.
Love you guys and we'll have to do it again!
