Day at the beach

Well everyone around here is complaining about winter.
"It's goes from 60 to 80 in a day"
"It never stops rainin' "
 "you never know what to expect..."

Whatever!  We'll take it all, you people have nothing to complain about!!!!

We will swim, we will sun ourselves.  We will do this despite your bad weather claims.....

Ecotour of PonceDeLeon Fountain of Youth

Brunch in the Sugar Mill

We had a great lunch at a restaurant at the springs that specialized in pancakes. Actually, they specialized in pancake batter, we cooked the pancakes ourselves. All of the tables had a built-in griddle in the middle. We received pitchers of batter, eggs, and bread to cook ourselves on our table. Maple syrup, molasses, and honey were provided to drizzle over our hot breakfasts, and we each had our own spatulas to flip our food. The restaurant was built inside a historical replica of an old sugar mill, which was powered by a stream coming from the historical "Fountain of Youth". We had a great day at the state park, where we took a boat tour, explored the historical site, and Maisie earned her "Junior Ranger" status from the park rangers.

Here are a few pics of us just having fun at the PonceDeLeon Fountain of Youth.  Sammy found an excellent boa that had fallen from the trees.  In the background is the pool, it is fed from an underground hot spring.

Love these kids! Party Part Two

Sammy's Golden Birthday!

Today was Sammy's fourteenth birthday.  Since her Golden birthday is only once in a lifetime we decided to celebrate with a party with her friends.  It was an awesome day, she has some really great people in her life.  We rented the space above Moore Toys and Games in town and dyed tshirts. 

Ben scoping out the room.  The similarity to this and a college party scares me. 

More photos to come.....
