Danger! Do not harass gators! Like I was thinkin about it? One of those funny signs they have to post because people will do these crazy things! We looked and looked all week for gators and finally saw one on the last day sunning itself on the golf course. It's as close as I could get or wanted to get for that matter. There were trails all over the island through trees and swampland. It was fun and a little scary. One night we were coming back at dusk and we could barely see. Thank God we didn't come across any gators or any other wild animals! Lots of fun and adventure here! Hopefully you can see that speck of a gator in the last picture. We were really glad to have finally spotted one. We thought a lot about Joey and his canoeing through the swamps in Florida. That is crazy! One swish of the tail and over you go in your tippy canoe! Yikes!

Kiawah Island

Seriously-I think that is really what the people who live on this island believe! This was a sign hanging in the kitchen of our pad. We went vacationing to Kiawah Island, SC this past week and what a time we had! There wasn't much sun but a lot of relaxing, dodging gators on our sweet bikes, laughs, and gawking at the lifestyles of the rich and famous! The side house was where Cbass and I stayed while her parents had the rest of the mansion! We made sure we went in every room and watched every tv and used many bathrooms and showers. It also had a sweet brand new Lincoln Navigator with all the bells and whistles! Although there are thousands of houses on this island only 112 of them are inhabited. Unreal! I guess they are peoples vacation homes and investments. Whatever! I just put my whole self in, my whole self out, did the hokey pokey and......went home back to reality!

Zoo Boo!

Tonight we went to the Zoo Boo! Me, Jamie, Levi, and Liberty! Jace was at a football party with Pete so he missed out. There were some great costumes there! They got some candy, healthy snacks, and junk of course! It was packed as the entire city was there. Check out Levi and Libs in their sweet costumes! Liberty is posing with post-modern Wonder woman, Ariel, and Snow White. I love the clones and the superheroes too! What a beautiful day to walk around the zoo grounds! We had a great time!

Kiawah Island

Cbass and her family invited Pete and I (he had to work-surprise) on their family vacation. Check it out. If you click on this link and then get to the Kiawah Island home page watch the Kiawah Island video and you can see the exact house we are at. It's incredible! Mom, I think I finally found an island big enough for you to cook on in the kitchen!

Sweet homecoming

Imagine....I never told her he was coming home. She woke up at 6:30 on Monday morning and I went in her room and asked if she wanted to come lay with me for a while( I do not do this at all on a regular basis). She said she did and it was pretty dark so I knew she wouldn't be able to see him. When she was lying next to me she must've kicked him becasue she whispered, "is that daddy?" I told her it was, who else would it be? Nevermind. Anyway, she jumped and giggled and screamed, "kiss me!" She kept hugging him and squeezing him while asking, "do you wanna go to the zoo? Were you too far? Can you kiss me?" She talked with him in the dark for at least 10 minutes and then she leaned over to me and whispered, "I can't see his eyes." I got out my booklight and shined it above his head. She laughed and hugged and kissed him. "Did you wanna make sure it was daddy?" She said, "yes." It was one of those memories you'll never forget!

Guess Who?

My awesome sister Dana found this on a blog she visits regularly. I thought it was so great I had to post it myself...
