Weekend on The Palm Coast

Lou had a convention up on the palm coast on Memorial day weekend, so Kelsey I and went with him for the weekend. We met up with one of his partners from work and his family. We stayed in a nice 3 bedroom suite at a very nice resort (it would've been a Wonderful suite, except it didn't have Internet access!!) Unfortunately it rained torrentially pretty much all weekend. Luckily the kids still had fun playing with each other. We went to a cool local restaurant Thursday night and then drove into St. Augustine for dinner on Friday night. We were hoping to be able to wonder the streets of St. Augustine, but it started raining while we were eating dinner, so those plans were squashed. Like I said, Kelsey had a blast with her new friends though. Little Franco is 4 and Sianna (sp?) is Kelsey's age. We were able to take them to the indoor pool on Friday for a little and tried to take them to the beach, but it was so windy and cold and sprinkling.

We will definitely try to get together again, as even the adults enjoyed each other's company!

Corn on the Cob

Kelsey LOVES corn, but we had never actually given her the corn cob before. For Lou’s graduation party we had a low country boil and some family and friends over. Kelsey had her 1st, 2nd, 3rd and maybe even 4th corn on the cob. She LOVED it even more than just eating other corn. I think she also really liked being able to eat the corn anywhere other than in her highchair seat :-)

Mother's Day 2009

So I know this is a little late.....

For Mother's day this year we packed up and went to the beach for the morning. It was a gorgeous morning. Kelsey had fun playing with the shells and using her sifter. While she's not crazy about the sand on her feet, we did get her to go on a walk with us down the beach holding our hands. The water was freezing, so that was a no go, she cried every time the cold water came up and hit her feet. We ate a nice lunch on the boardwalk and then went to my parents to put Kelsey down for a nap. My sister and her crew came down later in the afternoon and we had a wonderful dinner of homemade crabcakes made by the men!! It really was such a nice day.

Planting in Mommy's Garden

We bought a sun and a dragonfly, at the dollar spot at Target, for Kelsey to put in the garden. My camera died on the first trip out there, but she actually knelt down and put the stakes in the ground all by herself, even before I got to show her what to do.Kelsey LOVES tomatoes. So we decided to plant some in the back of the herb garden. Here she is putting one in the ground after I dug the hole with her shovel.Carrying the second tomato plant to put it in the other hole.All planted....she got a little dirty too!!

Check out our garden!! Just in the last few days the basil, cilantro and arugula (front row left to right) have gone through a crazy growth spurt. Just past the stone we planted an eggplant, a cantaloupe and then 2 tomatoes. There are strawberries in the black pot and the terra cotta pot has my huge Rosemary plant. The tree in the middle of the garden is a Holly tree we got from the city a few months after Kelsey was born.

Eating Sushi w/ mommy

Our grocery store has a sushi guy who makes really good rolls.Kelsey has had bites before, but tonight I figured it could be her dinner. I mean why not? It's got rice, avocado, cucumber and shrimp(and seaweed). I also gave her some grapes and some edamame. She ate 4-5 pieces of the crunchy shrimp roll!!
