Closing in...

This weeks has been awesome! Wednesday we went on a family picnic at a park near Dave's school. Amy made delicious fish tacos. We did a lot of talking and laughing... what could be better?

Thursday, Amy and I got all crafty-crafty. We bought different colors of felt, pretty (fake) pearls, and safety pins. With the safety pins and pearls, we made bracelets that look super cute, and you cannot tell are made with safety pins. Bo almost got into the bowl of pearl-beads, and has become so mobile that we had to relocate everything to the kitchen table. I can't believe how much he's crawling! With the felt and pearls, we made hair flowers. Super-cute hair flowers. The later it got, the more Amy and I giggled like schoolgirls. Poor Savannah got to be the model and went almost all night/day with a hair flower clipped on her collar. But she sure looked pretty!

Friday (today), we went to downtown Naples. We saw some huge homes, then walked along the beach for a while. We found some fun shells, and little Bo LOVED getting his feet wet and kicking in the water with his dad! We walked to the end of the pier and watched the dolphins. I know, right??? DOLPHINS!!! So while we were walking back along the pier, an older gentleman walked up to Dave and Bo and held up a little fish to him. A shiny, live fish. He grabbed it. Giggled. Loved it. Then while Amy and I were grossed out (maybe Dave was? I dunno), the old man smiled and said "He'll be a fisherman yet!" and walked away. Very cute. Amy sanitized Bo's hands as soon as we got back to the car. After that, we walked around downtown for a little while, ate Abbott's custard, then headed home. We hollowed out a pumpkin, cut leg holes in the pumpkin, and plopped adorable Bo inside. He was he most adorable kid-in-a-pumpkin I've ever seen!


  1. How cute is he in the pumpkin!!! I haven't been up to date on my blog reading and I missed that you were going to Florida. I am so happy you had a great time. You look very happy and loved and it makes my heart full to see your pictures and hear your stories. These times together are priceless, thanks for sharing them with us :)
