My weekend in pictures…

January 9, 2012

It’s late and I really should be in bed. Tomorrow the big kids go back to school that means I have to be out of bed by 6:30 AM. 🙁 I was just going to post a few pictures and then head of to bed. Well, picking the shots that I liked took a little longer than I thought. I took about 200 pics this weekend, learning the ins and outs of my camera. No, it’s not new–I just didn’t realize how much it can actually do. Since I’ve started blogging I pay a lot more attention to my photos. It’s another new passion.

We had a really great weekend. Friday the five of us headed out to dinner at the Old Key Lime House which is a new favorite of ours. It’s on the water and you can even pull up by boat. Saturday after a big breakfast, hubby suggested we get in the car and check out the guitar shop he had found online. Since I’m trying to be more spontaneous and a drive sounded just fine in this glorious weather we’ve been having, I was all for it. How lucky that the guitar shop was right across the street from the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary? What a great place. They rehabilitate wild animals that are injured and work completely from donations. We bought some things at the gift shop…

After we got home hubby had to try out the new toy and I was all ready to enjoy a quiet night. That wasn’t happening. We had an impromptu get-together with our neighbors and ended up cooking surf and turf. I’m really getting into this spontaneity thing. Hope it will last throughout the year!!!

Sunday dawned sunny and bright yet again. We headed out to our usual family lunch with hubby’s grandma. After we got home the girls played with one of their friends, hubby worked on some car maintenance, and I spend time with my camera’s manual and made the girls pose for me. We finished this weekend with a home-cooked meal of chicken Alfredo made by yours truly. Oh, and I managed to beat hubby at ping-pong. I’m pretty good!!! 🙂

Happy Birthday!!!!

December 29, 2011

It’s his day today. My oldest, my boy. Where did the time go? I have an 11 year old.

Looks like daddy will be cooking him up some Osso-bucco for his birthday dinner. His cake will more than likely have crazy amounts of chocolate in it. Not sure if I’ll bake it or just pick one up. This mommy came down with a stomach bug and is not running 100%… Luckily, daddy is on the ball and middle daughter is helping out. By tonight we’ll have a nice dinner, a cake with 11 candles to blow out and probably at least one new video game to add to the arsenal!!!

I love you and all your freckles, too. Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
