Once we got home from St. Augustine, we were gone again in 8 days! This time? Omaha, Nebraska and South Dakota! We attended a family reunion in Omaha for one side of Matt's family and then visited the other side of Matt's family in South Dakota. Whew!!! Lots of driving! Lots of great visiting! Apparently , I was too busy visiting, swimming, eating, and keeping track of three kids that I took very few pictures.
Hotrod, Princess and I slipped away for a couple of hours to go to the Duhram Museum. They had a TRex exhibit that, well, we could not miss! It really was fun!
On the way back from St. Augustine, we had to drive straight through Georgia in the middle of peach season. Of course we had to find a peach orchard and Lane Orchards it was! Homemade peach ice cream, cobbler, a tour of the orchards and then the packing facility.....it was great!
On this particular day in St. Augustine, Hotrod, Princess and I did something very special. The day before, Hotrod and I went on our first Mother/Son outing. He took me to the Lightner Museum. Here are two links to view it.
The Bible tells us that we are made in God's image. My children and husband have imaginations like no one else I know. I know that comes from God and I love to see His imagination in creation. In St. Augustine we visited The Alligator Farm and saw God's creativity first hand. Amazing!!
Oh honey, I think you over did the makeup this morning! :)
Does this bird not look like an old man wearing a cape?
Our mothers love us!!
Speaking of God's beautiful creations!
Whew! What a fierce looking vulture!
You will never find a cuter vulture!!
Can I carry you across the water to the other side?? You look tasty!
I don't know why I find this picture funny.
I see you!!
A proud daddy! Or is it a momma?
At the Alligator Farm, there is a natural bird sanctuary. Every year these birds come back to this spot to nest and raise their young. I have never seen so many birds in one place!
Just a little closer......
This was a highlight. They do feeding shows everyday....the man is crazy!
The alligator on the bottom with his leg sticking out? looks like Barney to me. Am I nuts? Heat exhaustion?
Nothing like slushies to beat Florida humidity!
Thank you Aunt Karen for treating us to the Alligator Farm!!
