We visited Williamsburg, Virginia recently to get a little more vacation time in before the 2010-2011 school year began. While there, we hit Busch Gardens and Water Country using their Summer “Discovery Pass.” It gives you seven consecutive days to visit both parks at your leisure. Aside from $13.00/day/park, the value was tremendous. You can … [Read more…]
Kids’ countdown to the new year at noon at Ink in Gainesville. #

The documentation on this subject is actually quite lengthy; I had to follow a couple of citations to other fascinating topics regarding in vitro fertilization and other immoral acts of life … [Read more…]
I see two things that really remind me I’m having a good beach vacation: I didn’t pack any socks and I don’t know how many times I’ve showered. Time is also of little importance. We haven’t kept track of the time very much except by the heat of the sun. We’re winding … [Read more…]

Balthazar’s first trip (at 4-years-old) to Disney World is coming up. We told him about it last night and it has been non-stop question and harassment about it. We were careful not to tell him until just days before we left. We wanted him to have one day at school to brag … [Read more…]
