Summer Vacation
Well we finally made it to the beach this year.  The lucky winner was Destin, FL and may I say it was an awesome choice.  I have been to A LOT of beaches but I have to say Destin beach is by far the best yet!  We stayed two weeks and the girls had a blast.  We held and fed live alligators, we went crab hunting at night on the beach and found lots of crabs.  We are now the proud owners of a hermit crab as a result!  We also saw dolphins, went boogie boarding, built lots of sand castles, rode bumper cars, automatic boats and raced in some go-karts.  It was a memorable vacation with family and friends...I look forward to going back again real soon!  

We also drove up to Seaside, FL for a day...here are a few of my favorite pictures I took with my new camera from Australia.  It has been my favorite toy since I made the purchase!  :-)

Jeepers! My baby turned 4!!
It's been Scooby Doo in our house since ClaireBear was about two years old. I tried it fight it as long as I could so finally we here are with a Scooby Doo birthday party! Here are a few pictures of Claire's birthday, I know some of you have seen them already on Facebook...but for you non-fb users here you go!

Claire's all time favorite character is Daphne on the cartoon so that is the birthday cake she asked for. Of course my girls get to pick the cake...so I did the best I could without a character Wilton pan!


This is the mystery machine I made as a prop for the party. This was the starting point for the mystery that was to be solved. If you look in the lower right-hand corner you can see one of the clues!

The first thing we did was dress each other up as mummies. Each kid had a partner and a roll of toilet paper to use!

Next was to solve the mystery. Claire's presents were dropped off in on the dining room table and I had the parents move them to the 'secret spot' while they were being mummies. Each child took a turn reading the Scooby Doo mystery clues.



They even had to go outside. One of the clues was hidden in someone's mailbox...this is a picture of the kiddos running after the other half of the kiddos who found the clue in the neighbors mailbox!


There were a total of nine clues scattered inside and outside the house. Each clue led to the next and they had to figure out what happen to the missing presents! They finally solved the mystery when they found Claire's presents inside the trunk of Daddy's car!!


We then opened presents, ate Daphne cake with Scooby and Shaggy's favorite ice cream and Phantom Punch.

One of her favorite presents was the Fancy Nancy Dress Up Trunk (she actually got two of them!) Here is one of my favorite pictures of her after her friends helped her dress up in the Fancy Nancy clothes.





And finally a picture of Scooby Doo and the gang!! (Thanks GT for being Scooby Doo!)

Returned from the Outback
Now that was a wild trip...I had so much fun and learned A LOT. I got to see the most beautiful scenery, I caught up with a high school friend that I haven't seen in over 15 years and I actually got to see some kangaroos. I was going to blog more but time just got away from me. So for now I will just post some of my favorite pictures during the trip. It's going to be hard to decide but I'll do my best.

On the last full day of sightseeing I headed to downtown Sydney and bought my Christmas present!! After TONS of research, converting Aussie dollars and collecting GST (government sales tax) we decided it was a must buy. I will post about the purchase further down in this post so keep reading... :-)
Checking out the Sydney Opera House...

Cockatoo's in the Botanical Gardens...
All those black blobs are bats hanging from the trees in the botanical gardens. At dusk they started to stir.

A beautiful view of the botanical gardens with downtown in the background.


In the blue mountains with the Three Sisters (rock formations) in the background. The blue haze in the far right background is oil from the Eucalyptic trees there, hence the name "blue mountains". :-)

Katoomba Falls. I took this picture riding on a glass bottom cable car going from one side of the mountain to the other.

My honey at Manly Beach...the water was definitely too cold to swim but that didn't stop all the surfers!
Night time view of Darling Harbor. We took a ferry over and had dinner on the harbor at blue fish.
YES!! I got a picture of the mighty fast Kangaroos! My dear friend Vanessa lives on some property where a pack of 20 - 30 roos come in her yard every morning. If you look closely you can see this mama and her joey eating next to her bent over. That's Monty the horse on the right. They make it a little hard to catch the roos on film as well. :-)
My friend lives out in the county about hour and half from Melbourne. I took a flight on Monday to Melbourne and stayed with her and her boyfriend for three days. They live in Mt. Franklin and this is the view from the back porch. Absolutely peaceful, beautiful! Bella and Monty the horses are missing from the picture and you can't hear the Australian birds singing!! :-(

Now, if you made it this far you're doing good! LOL! So my early Christmas present was a new digital SLR camera. If you known me for any length of time you know I LOVE TO TAKE PICTURES!!! I've been wanting (read whining) for a camera that I could zoom in with on objects, people, etc. Thanks to John's friend/co-worker I purchased a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi digital camera with an IS (18-200mm) lens and has 12.2 mega pixels! This thing is incredible!!!

Below are two pictures I was able to take before we had to head to the airport. My only regret is not getting the camera at the beginning of the trip because then I really could zoom in on those kangaroos and birds! Oh well, I've had 18 hours of flying time to read the manuals cover to cover now time to do some shooting...
