Summer Family Vacation 2017

Summer family vacation is my favorite time of the year. For me, it's better than Christmas, New Years, or my birthday! This year we headed to Palm Island Resort located in Cape Haze, Florida, and about 2.5 hours south of us. The night before we left, Daddy presented the girls with their annual vacation slide…

No Time Exists

No time exists here. The mornings run into afternoons, run into evenings..and nothing matters but the moments in which we exist. These are my favorite days of the year. The days in which just the 4 of us enjoy solitude, time together, falling into the trance of the hypnotizing sea waves, sand beneath our feet,…

Sophie’s 9!

Sophie J had a birthday! She's officially 9 years old as of Wed. Dec. 14th! We celebrated her special day with friends and family last Saturday the 10th. The theme she chose was "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". The party started at 4:30 pm, and she arrived home just in time for her celebration. She attended…

Winter in Florida

Salosa, our boat, was gone for a bit receiving some TLC, but since she's been back, we've enjoyed several wonderful and relaxing boat rides. Doug and I took her out the Friday she arrived home, about 2 weeks ago. As soon as we hit the water, a school of dolphins started playing behind the boat, jumping…

NC Summer Family Vacation 2016

  I love Doug! We've been planning our summer family vacation for about 3 months now, but he did 99% of the leg work, which included fun little surprises for the girls, lots of planning, and coordinating  all accommodations. He poured his whole heart into our summer family vacation and all the adventures along the way, and it…

Sea Banana’s

Florida's notorious for summer afternoon rainstorms, and we've been caught in a few recently, during our weekend boat excursions. At first it was a little frightening, but we've learned to adapt. The bimini top covers the rain from above and our big beach umbrella acts as a shield in front of us, like a knights…

O’ Christmas Tree

This holiday season was one of our busiest yet, but amongst the business, we made time for holiday fun. We decorated our real tree and our silver tree. We arranged the Nutcrackers atop the little wood burning stove, and the dining room hutch. The girls and I Christmas shopped for Daddy together, and enjoyed lunch at…

Thanksgiving Road Trip

This year we spent Thanksgiving with our PA family, the Webber side. I was very opposed to traveling via car to PA, but Doug felt it would be best considering delays that often happen when traveling via plane during the busy holiday season. Also, the fact that he's always on a plane, and the girls…

I Love You Daddy, Oh Yes I Do..

Although it's been some time since I've wanted to write this post, I figure better late then never. Our hours here in the Webber home are filled with school work, ballet and tap classes and endless studying for mommy. The girls are doing well in 4th and 1st grade, and I only have 3 more…

Summertime Gladness

It's summertime and we're feeling summertime gladness. Life without early mornings, studying, and busy jam-packed schedules is exactly what we needed. Here's a compilation of pictures from our summer vacation so far: The girls performed in their end of the year dance recital on Sunday June 1st. They looked gorgeous and performed beautifully. Daddy travled to NYC for…

It’s Christmas Time!

It's Christmas time! School is out for the girls and momma! We are loving the break, sleeping in, freedom from homework and playing together. Last week I sat through two days of orientation and spent one day of training on the floor at the new hospital I'll be working at, Mease Dunedin Hospital. The unit…

Taking a Break!

Last weekend was mostly all about studying for a big exam that took place on Monday afternoon, but there were glimpses of greatness with my family intertwined. Doug bought me (and the girls) The Little Mermaid, since its my  our favorite movie and its finally available for purchase. Its been in the vault for like 25 years,…

Summer Family Vacation 2013

The girls modeled their new swim suits for Daddy last Tuesday night, the night before vacation. The few days prior to vacation was busy with buying new suits and snacks, packing and being excited together about our summer family vacation together. We left on Wednesday morning for Hilton Orlando, the place we stayed last year.…

Stranded On A Beach In Front Of A Resort

Since Doug and I have had serious discussions of purchasing kayaks lately,  we decided to borrow our friends' kayaks this past weekend and try them out before moving forward with a purchase. Saturday afternoon we threw our bathing suits on, lathered sun screen on our bodies, then departed from our dock via kayaks. We rowed…

Spring Break

Here's a whole basket full of pictures describing our spring break: Sophie's preschool Easter egg hunt: Chalk Festival downtown: Ikea trip  for bar items, mugs, shot glasses and such for our new/vintage tiki bar (I'll post pics of it soon). Thanks Ted!! Whenever we eat at Ikea I think of the very first time Doug…

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

This weekend we blared Irish tunes on Pandora and opened the windows in the front room because most of our weekend was spent in the front yard. Now that I'm working, I love being home on the weekends. I wouldn't care if we never left our little paradise. On Saturday, Doug hung a swing in the…

Things That Made Me Smile/Happy This Weekend

The things that made me smile/happy this weekend include: 1. Friday Night- The girls spent the night with my parents Friday night for their monthly sleep over and Doug and I attended 3rd Friday night downtown, kid-free. We always go with the girls, so it was nice to run around freely without them this time.…

Windy Weather, But So Far, We Are Safe

Sophie is ready for the weather.  The girls have off school today due to Hurricane Isaac, which appears to be moving further away from us. We will be praying for the people (including family) in New Orleans as it heads their direction. The house smells delicious as the roast beef slow cooks in the slow…

We Were All About Food This Weekend!

Our weekend began with a movie and stove pop popcorn with the girls Friday night. Then after they were snug in bed, Doug and I watched our movie, Adjustment Bureau. Saturday near lunch time the girls and I headed to a birthday pool party. The girls swam for nearly 3 hours. When we got home,…
