A Day at the Beach

One of the reasons it's hard to leave Florida . . . the beaches! It was such a beautiful day and we had fun building sandcastles, reading, and finding interesting shells, etc. in the ocean along Hollywood Beach.

Jenna at Epcot, Spring '08

Jenna went on a school trip to Epcot with all of her friends in 6th grade. I remember doing that in ninth grade when the park was new -unbelievable!

Jenna shopped at the GAP and FAO Schwartz, where we found a smurf collection!

Jenna enjoyed hailing cabs . . .

We had fun building snow families, making snow angels, and engaging in snowball fights in Central Park. What a treat for a South Floridian!

New York City

My family surprised me with a trip to New York City for my 40th birthday! The weather was perfect - snow and sunshine! We saw GREASE on broadway (AWESOME!), skated at Rockefeller Center, and visited Central Park, FAO Schwartz, the Museum of Natural History, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building. It was fabulous enjoying the sights with my family and I didn't have to plan a thing!

Ren Fest '08

Every year on Presidents Day, we go to the Renaissance Festival at Quiet Waters Park. It's nice to be outside, doing something different, while enjoying a family tradition. Jenna said she plans to take her children there one day - the ultimate compliment!
