Traveling to Daytona Beach

We stopped at Dairy Queen on the way there, and Amanda had her first dipped cone. Bob would not let her in the car until she was finished with that cone. We stood outside for a long time! She was all ready for the beach with her shell necklace.

Amanda did great on the 7.5 hour drive. She had bunny, blankie and barbie to keep her happy ... and of course drinks and snacks. LOTS of snacks!

The scenery was beautiful!

The DVD player is a “must have” when traveling with children. Amanda watched “The Fox and the Hound”, “Charlotte's Web” and several “Baby Einstein” DVDs.

And we couldn't forget the coloring book and crayons!

Yes! We made it to Daytona Beach … more pictures to come.

Babysitter's Shoes

Amanda loves to try on our babysitter's shoes. Check out the heels she has on today!


Amanda picked up a grasshopper at the pool and brought it home as a pet. Poor grasshopper!

Fun on the Computer with Papa

My parents stopped by for a short visit before heading off to Savannah and Daytona Beach. We are meeting them in Daytona Beach this weekend for a fun week at the beach. I can't wait for a little fun in the sun!

One of the girls found a caterpillar and of course Amanda was very interested in holding it.

Little Ballerina

Amanda checking out her hurt toe. She cracked me up when she said, "Look at my damaged toe!"

It must not have been too damaged, because she was right back on her toes.

Dress Up and Make Pretend

Amanda is comforting her baby … so cute to watch!

Sarah's Birthday Party

Here is a tote bag that I made for Amanda's friend Sarah. I filled it with Ariel themed goodies.

Now they both have one!

Amanda loves the monkey bars!

There's the birthday girl in the middle!

Simon says tickle your friends. In this case, it was … tickle the boy in the middle!

Simon says touch your head!

Amanda pulled the string that released all of the candy!

Wow, look at all the candy!

The birthday girl fixing to blow out her candles.

Amanda loves icing but not the cake.

Sarah had fun opening presents with her mommy! What fun!
