Boot Free!!!

Today I went back to the doctor for another X-ray and checkup. He gave me the green light to take off the boot and wear some regular sneakers. I have some activity restrictions and will need some physical therapy (my ankle is pretty stiff) but I am now boot-free!!!

First Day of School

Today was the first day of school in Lake County. Parker started his sophomore year at Leesburg High School. Wesley started middle school in 6th grade at Carver Middle. And Davis started 4th grade at Fruitland Park Elementary. They all seemed to have a good day!

Beach Vacation

We're home from a wonderfully relaxing family vacation at Siesta Key Beach. We stayed in Crescent Arms again but this time beachfront in the north building. You cannot beat the view! We took relatively few pictures this year and tried to stay present in the moments. Lots of beach time, pool time, family time playing board games, catching up on movies at night and eating at all our favorite regular haunts. 

We were fortunate to enjoy a mini family reunion last Sunday with two of the Davis sisters and their families (Daryl's mom Joyce and her sister Diane). And we managed to sneak in a visit to St. Armand's Circle for some shopping and dinner at the Columbia Restaurant there. We also enjoyed having Grandmommy come down to hang out with us one day. 

Very thankful for this time away with the boys to close out our summer.

Honoring Family

Sunday would have been Grandaddy's 71st birthday. And so in his honor we gathered together for some family time on Sunday. Grandmommy, Uncle Daniel, Aunt Dawn, Bethany and Kayla came up for worship at Community as Daryl was preaching. And then we hung out at the house a little bit, went to lunch at Ramshackles and then went to see the new Lion King movie at the Leesburg Mall. It is always so good to spend time with our family and we were happy that they drove up so we could hang out together.

Up Close and Personal with Gators

A few months ago we were gifted four passes (two adult; two kids) to a local attraction in Wildwood - GatorWorld. It's a drive through gator experience and then also you can hold and feed gators and check out their petting zoo. So on Friday, we were finally able to use our passes and we only needed to buy one ticket for Parker. The boys really enjoyed getting to see all of the gators. 

At the end of the drive through, we went to check out the live experience section. 

Davis did not want to hold the gator. Check out his expression in this picture at having to stand anywhere near the gator!

Big Al is a stuffed gator that is over 13 feet long! 

Gator eggs waiting to hatch. 

The gator feeding area. We all took a turn here! 

And then we went through the petting zoo with its chickens, goats and bunnies.
