Another morning hike at the Heard

Today we decided to go for another hike at the Heard. Mary picked the Hoot Owl trail this time. It was the first time we had done this one. We got to see a tree struck my lightening several years ago that is still living. It also has the oldest and biggest tree. It is over 250 years old.

First day of Pre-K

Mary's first day of school was last week. She was so excited to be going back to see all of her teachers. While eating breakfast on the first day, she told me "Next year my first day will be in Kindergarten" I can't believe that next year she will be going to school with me! She is definitely ready! She is beginning to read and spell. Last night she was naming her muscles...gluteus maximus, obliques, pectoral, triceps, biceps, and hamstrings (and many more...but not sure how to spell them!!!)!!! We were quite amazed she could do this.

Perdido Key, Florida

We had a fantastic time on the beach at Perdido Key, Florida, near Pensacola. This was our first vacation since we visited NYC when Mary was 15 months! It was certainly a fun time!!! We spent a lot of time on the beach just hanging out, digging in the sand, looking for seashells, and swimming. We found that we need to go to the pool after every trip to the beach. We went to the National Aviation Museum, Johnson Beach, The Wharf (a lot like Kema boardwalk), out to eat, and William and his dad took an off shore fishing trip. William was determined to go to the end of the key! One day he suckered me into walking with him. We walked for over an hour and never made it. I convinced him to turn around. The next day we drove as far as we could. And we walked again for over an hour and still didn't make it. He pulled out his iphone and found that we still weren't even close! He says next time he will do it!

Getting good at walking

Amy has really been doing a lot of walking while we've been on vacation. We've been enjoying the beach. I have yet to eat a meal inside. In the mornings we get to see the dolphins swim by. When we get back I'll down load all of the videos and pics.
