Daddy-Daughter Day Pt 1 - 2024/02/22

Well just like Ian and I had a fun day out together with just the two of us, a short time later it was time for Alli and I to go out and have a great day! We'd talked about a few ideas, including going to Disney World and maybe the Animal Kingdom. But after seeing the things Ian got to do, she revised her list. 

Alli - I want to pet a porcupine!
Joe - Did you see they have other things you can meet? Sloths, capybara? 
Alli - Capybara! I want to pet one!
Joe - More than a porcupine? 
Alli - I don't know...

Here's the list that we came up with. I think we'll get through a good portion of those!

Hanging out with Friends and Family! 2024-02-25

Since getting back to Florida, we've been able to visit with lots of friends and family! 

Our bike rides out to see our friend Henry have continued, and one day he texted me a picture of a new addition. A hunter in the area had killed a large sow, but found a new litter of piglets left behind. He asked if Henry wanted her. This little girl is only a few days old, and Henry said she needs constant attention.

Happy Pi Day! We're celebrating with pizza pie! 

And it's Ian's favorite kind. Thin crust pizza!

Daddy-Son Day Pt1 - 2024/02/20

Hello friends! I'm jumping all around with these posts, but here's one that we did recently that was a whole lot of fun! 

For Christmas, as a special treat, Theresa and I told the kids that we'd take them out, one on one, for a special date day! Today, me and Ian are going to be hanging out together and having a lot of fun, while Theresa and Alli are off together doing their own thing! Oh boy, I'm excited for today! 

We were up bright and early to get our day started! 

What's on the agenda? Well, I had Ian come up with some ideas. I added a few to the list as well. In the end, he's got a bunch of different possibilities, but didn't know which ones I actually chose to do. And what's that last one on the list? Really? How did you come up with that one? 
Let's begin our day full of adventures!

Florida and Hurricane Nicole - 2022/11/08

After being such a beautiful day yesterday that we spent our time at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park, today is shaping up to be something a bit different. 

Theresa and I have been planning our return trips to Florida for the winter to be AFTER the hurricane season. Hurricane Ian just hit Florida about 5 weeks ago and we'd hoped that would be the end of it. Well... maybe not. 

In the days leading up to it, we know a heavy storm was on its way. But where would it hit? That's the question. Well, turns out that it was coming right through where we were parked in the RV. But how are the winds going to be? We were thinking if it was in the 30s, we'd try to ride it out. 
But, that morning, watching the predictions it would be in the 50mph range with gusts into the 70s. Not something I'd want to ride out in an RV. We're Florida residents, but I suppose we're not seasoned residents yet that'll we'll try to weather this storm.
