Forever Florida

This past weekend my friend and I went to Forever Florida located in Kenansville, Florida. Our guys were hunting and we needed something to do until they met us later at the motel we were staying at. Forever Florida is a 4700 acre eco-ranch and wildlife conservation area. We took this swamp buggy on a tour of the ranch.

Later we went to our motel Lakeside Inn and checked in. This is the lake and the dock behind the motel. The picture was taken from the screened in gazebo.

The entrance to my and my husbands room.

The inside was very simple, cute, and very clean. Of course we still bring our own sheets, blankets, and pillows ;-)

This is my adorable husband after a looooong day of hunting. No luck though.

This was a very nice weekend getaway. We will definetly do it again. The guys will be hunting through November. Hopefully better luck next time!

Homecoming Dance

Last Saturday night Rachel and Daniel went to the Homecoming Dance. The dress Rachel is wearing was worn by her sister to the prom about 4 years ago. My mom altered the dress to fit her. Before the dance I dropped the kids off at the Olive Garden to eat and then picked them up an hour and a half later. (click on the pics to enlarge them)

When I came to pick them up Rachel seemed down so I asked what was wrong. She was upset and dissapointed because the dance was not what she expected. She thought it would be the way you see them portrayed in the movies with slow dancing and that it would be romantic. Instead she said they played ghetto music and the most of the girls were "dirty" dancing. How sad :-(
I am not sure if she will ever go to a school dance again.
