Horse's are stinky!

Uncle Cris called us last week and told us the Budweiser Clydesdale Horses were in town. They had them on display are a local store. I took the Pirate and the Mermaid up to see them. All the Mermaid would say is "what's that smell???" Gotta laugh.....

Earth Hour

We tried very hard to participate in Earth Hour this evening. The last Saturday in March is Earth Hour around the world. From 8:30pm to 9:30 pm you are to turn off your lights and non-essential appliances in your home to help conserve energy and help the planet. Well, it was very dark in the house and we were a little bored. So, we watched TV for the hour. Like I said...we tried!

Spring Training with Uncle Cris and the Red Sox

Here are the pictures from the day at the Ball Park. The first is of The Pirate with Carl Beane, the "Voice" of the Boston Red Sox. Check out the ring....OH! and the ice cream nose!!!!!

Inside the announcers box at City of Palms Park

That's David Ortiz behind The Pirate...he just hit a homerun. I don't think The Pirate was too impressed...

We got the best seats EVER!!!!

I'm sitting on the Red Sox dug out!!!!!!
The Pirate had a great time with Uncle Cris and his friends today at the ball park. The Red Sox played the Twins and won. The Pirate even brought home a foul ball hit by Kevin Youkilis! He was very excited about going...thanks Uncle Cris!!!!!!

Super Model in Training

This is our entertainment in between innings at the baseball field. The Mermaid is practicing to be a super model. I think she has a lot of work ahead of her!
Work it girl!!!!!!!!

Baseball Ready!

Check out the feet....

Each time a batter comes to the plate...Coach Howard reminds the kids to be "baseball ready". The Pirate ALWAYS jumps into his position! It is very funny...I caught him in action!
He got to play at the pitchers mound this night.

Discovery Lifts OFF!!!!!

We're waiting and very excited!!!!!

There it is! Right above an American Flag....
Going higher and higher....
Look at the smoke from the rocket boosters.

It is pretty cool living in Florida when things like the space shuttle Discovery goes into space. We live on the west coast and can still see it. It is very cool when it is a night launch. We drove to the community theatre near our house for a clearer view. Not so many houses. The kids loved it and we were not the only ones to stop on the road and watch!

First Baseball Practice!!!!

That's the Pirate and Coach Howard.

It was chilly that morning and check out the fog....
Hip Hop T-ball dude!

I know!

I have not posted in a while. We have had many "things", "events", "happenings" going on. Here is a list....

Only The Pirate had the Flu...
Then got the stomach flu after Mommy had it and then Daddy got it!
Then, he got stung by a wasp two times! At least we know he is NOT allergic!
The Pirate won the Edison Regional Invention Fair for First grade. He won last year while in Kindergarten. Two years in a row!!!
The Pirate has been out 5 days this quarter from school, he has gotten behind in his AR reading. He read and took 7 AR tests this week! My little bookworm!!!!
The Pirate is playing T Ball this year. He is on the Mets. Two games a week.
He also went to the dentist and got a clean bill of health. NO CAVITIES!!!!!


The Mermaid went to the dentist and has 6 CAVITIES!!!! Thank goodness we have dental insurance....$400 bucks to fill them in!
She ran into the sliding glass door..she is OK!
No, she did not get the Flu OR the Stomach Flu. I know...what's up with that?????
The Mermaid got to change her earrings for the first time and one was slightly infected. It is getting better...
The Mermaid got a hair cut. It is getting long...
The Mermaid likes going to the baseball field and wants to play (she does EVERYTHING the Pirate does!)
When asked what she has for lunch at school...she replies " a crabby patty". WAY... Too much Spongebob!

All is good for now. Everyone is healthy. FCAT testing is over. Daddy is still is tutoring everyday. Mommy is holding down the fort.

I promise to post some pictures.
