We just arrived home last night from a weekend spent with Jonathan's family in central Florida. We had a great time, and I have many pictures and some stories to share from our trip. But it's back to the old grind this morning, as well as many new things this starting this week. One fun thing that's coming up is the blogging carnival that I'm going to be a part of on St. Patrick's Day. I've never done this before, so I'm really looking forward to it! Not to mention that it's being hosted by a sweet lady in Northern Ireland, so you can't get any more authentic then that! :)
You might also have noticed that I took the time to put the blog back together after I almost chucked it last week. It was infuriating re-doing everything, but I should know by now not to try to renovate it (or anything else) on the nights when Jonathan's out of town. Once a week, things seem to fall apart and it usually happens the night he's gone! So, after this post, you shouldn't hear from me again today since he's on the road again! Anyhow, I was thankful that I got the blog into 3 columns, which gives room for a few other fun things, since I'm still working on a whole label section. But don't think I'll work on that tonight! ;-)
So, on with the stories and the pictures, which is probably why you're here in the first place, right?! Well, we started out our trip with a visit to the newest park in Lakeland. We had seen it being built the last times we were there and we knew it was going to be pretty awesome! We went with Jonathan's dad at a time when we thought it wouldn't be too crowded. It was busy, for sure, but not overwhelming, can't find a parking space crowded, so that was good!
I love this picture! It's not too often that both kids are enjoying something together!
These collage pictures should give you a feel for what it was like that morning - busy! The kids didn't stop for a second!
William was very brave on the slides. He got so that's all he wanted to do, and only the big ones, of course!
There's padded astro turf everywhere, so it's nice if the kids take a spill, but the static build up will get you! You can see the static in Abbey's hair up there!
I love William's face on the one below!
It was a gorgeous day, perfect for being outside! We had a great time at Common Ground Park and look forward to going back next time we're in town! If only we can get the kids to leave without whining...we'll have to work on that! :)
