Snow in Florida?

For all of our northern friends freezing their little toes off lately we feel now that we can finally empathize with you. :)

Our town holds an annual "Snow Fest" for the kids in the community. It mainly consists of bouncehouses, rockwalls, ropewalls, and yes 3 large piles of man-made snow!!! It's great.

Bauer wasn't quite sure what to do with all of the cold white stuff, but he seemed to enjoy it.

I will say it was nice to be able to go from snow to 75 degrees within a couple steps. :)

Lovin' some berries

Today we went out to Henscratch Farms. It's a cute little family owned farm that grows blueberries and strawberries throughout the year.
Bauer loved it. His favorite part was the chickens running around all over the place. We were reminded quickly that with a chicken coop comes chicken POOP!! I'm not sure how, but by the end we had to toss the shoes in the truck and sanitize his entire left leg. We had to laugh.

The strawberries were delicious!!

Gone Fishin

Over our Christmas break we actually took a few mini-vacations versus staying home and hibernating for a week. As teachers we get in free to Sea World so it didn't take long to figure out where we would go.
I'm pretty sure that someone somewhere was giving out free somethings in Orlando because I've never seen so many people on the road or at the park in my life!!

We were able to see almost everything except...............SHAMU!! I know, I know, that's the whole purpose in going, but at 1:45 they made an announcement over the park-wide intercom saying, "The 2:00 show is full, come back later" (paraphrased)
Oh well. Maybe next time.

Here is a picture of the crazy crowds. Can you find Bauer and Daddy?
