Daryl and I ended up taking a hike on Friday in Apopka, near Orlando. We went to the Wekiva Springs State Park and did the 3.5 mile Mill Creek Loop trail. It was nice and easy and very old Florida! 

That night dinner was courtesy of the Hills who made Low Country Boil for the tribe. Delicious!

More Surgery

Davis had more dental surgery on Thursday up in Ocala with Dr. Ron under anesthesia. His original time was 1:15pm, which meant no eating after he woke up and no more liquids after 9am. Then they pushed his start time back to 2pm. We arrived at 1:45pm and they didn't start operating until almost 3pm. He was SO hangry! We had to play around trying to keep him distracted until they were ready. 

Surgery lasted 2 hours. He had one extraction, two crowns put in and four fillings done (two major, two minor). He woke up really agitated and in pain this time and very disoriented. I was able to carry him to the car where he slept most of the way home. At home he woke up fine and was able to eat his Frosty and Chik-fila soup and downed a whole bottle of water. He opened up a present from Grandmommy too - a Lightning beanie baby!

Mommy Time

 Wednesday, I went to spend some time with my friend Mer in her new store - it opens in a couple of weeks in the Villages. It looked so different than the day we celebrated her getting the keys to the space and ate a picnic on the bare floor.

This time I worked in the lab in the back and followed the herbal recipes 
to make big bags of loose leaf tea to sell. So relaxing and fun!

Silly Puppy

Somehow he figured out how to get on the dining room table like the cat. 
Who knew?

Easter Celebrations

Easter started on Saturday night with the boys getting their gifts - new t-shirts and Starbucks gift cards. 

Sunday worship went very well at both services with over 200 in attendance - our highest in person since March 8, 2020. So thankful for the gift of these amazing people here that I get to lead worship with. 

Lunch at home - crockpot ribs for the win! 

Family pictures in the yard 

And then we drove back to Seffner to celebrate the rest of Parker's birthday with the family - Grandmommy, Uncle Daniel and his crew as well as Aunt Janice and Aunt Barbara and Uncle David. 
It's been over a year since we saw Janice, Barbara and David and it was nice to see them again.

Disney Easter

Friday the guys watched Godzilla and Kong movies at the house, with Jenn and the kids, and Amy and I set off to Disney to find Easter Eggs. We didn't get to do this last year because of Covid, and there weren't as many hotels as usual participating, but we had fun. 

We started out at Hollywood Studios in their parking lot and rode the Skyliner to the International Gateway at Epcot. From there we walked a few minutes to the Beach Club hotel lobby for the first eggs.

The Princess and the Frog

Then we walked next door to the Yacht Club Lobby for some more. 


Mice from Cinderella in teacups

Tinkerbell from Peter Pan 

Then we walked over to Boardwalk and found a real bunny along the way. 

Boardwalk took a different approach with lots of smaller Easter Eggs and 
some hidden Mickeys in their display. 

We took a boat back from the Boardwalk Inn to the Studios for the car and parked at Disney Springs. 
Then we walked around over to Saratoga Springs Resort on the other side of the water from the Springs. In their lobby they had three eggs and another in a nearby restaurant. You could vote for which cast member's handiwork you liked best on the eggs. 


From there we took a bus back to Disney Springs and drove home. 

We had a really good time hanging out together!
