Florida Sand Dunes

These pics were taken during our camping trip. The beach sand in this region of Florida is as white as snow and the sand dunes at this state park are some of the tallest in the United States. My son and his friend were at the top of one and he is showing me that he is "King of the Dunes" LOL. The trees in this area grow in a stunted manner and are "designed" to withstand the winds that are brought about when hurricanes show up.

Tax Baby = Birthday Girl

It's my Birthday... It's my Birthday... It's my Birthday... All day long!!! I am singing to myself today - I love my birthday and celebrate all day long each year. I am thankful for another year to work and hopefully improve on myself and to love and spend time with my family and friends. Thank you God for this day and for your love.

These beautiful flowers and this oh so sweet! card are what I found on my desk this morning when I got to my office - my hubby is SUCH a sweety :o)

An early morning walk

One morning, while we were camping, the girls and I and our little pup got up very early and went for a nice long walk. Here are some pics of what we experienced and as you can tell from the jackets - it was a wee bit cold since it had rained all day the day before. We saw many birds, some very cool trees and flowers, and the girls got most excited about the foot prints that a racoon left on the boardwalk during his night time prowling. It was so quiet since we were about the only ones up and about and we could here the birds singing along with the soothing sounds of the waves lapping the shoreline. Ah - so very peaceful and special!

A Florida Sunset

Going, Going, Going - Gone! This was a most beautiful sunset to sit and watch, very mesmerizing to view the different colors of the sun, sky, and water as with each moment everything changed and the beautiful day slowly relaxed into a spectacular night

Great Fun on the Beach!!!

After the rain finally stopped and the skies cleared on day 2 of our trip. the girls (here with friend) got to play on the beach - and they just had the best time running and playing in the surf and of course looking for that special sea shell

Camping Trip Pics

Finally got my pictures back. As I hope the pictures show, we had a great time hangin' and playing in the great out doors.

Now, This is the Life!!!

Man of my dreams

This is our little pop-up camper. It has 1 queen bed for mom and dad and 1 full size bed for the twins. The twins love going camping and I think the camper has alot to do with this, they just love playing in it and sleeping next to Mom and Dad! Our son has a pop-up Van we bring along that is "home away from home" when we go camping but I forgot to get a pic of.

Camping in the Great Outdoors

This week is Spring Break for our children so we planned a trip to one of the nearby state parks for 5 days of fun in the Great Outdoors. We had two days of rain but did not let that slow us down (nope/nope/nope). We played in the rain and slept through the storms (well sorta) and kept on enjoying the nice break of being with each other and away from the usual stresses of everyday life that work and school bring. I have pictures that I hope to share/post soon.
