A Day In The Swamp!

Stinky swamp, I know. I wish Tallahassee was closer. My son has developed a "fair-weather" liking for the Gators. Don't ask me why. Lauren, at least, would say "Go Noles!" when prompted. We had a nice day, even being in Gainesville. Eric had to go the the Health Department for an appointment for his upcoming trip to Haiti. He has to get all kinds of vaccinations. I'm a little apprehensive, however, I know they're neccessary. We took the kids to the Oaks mall and let them play on the indoor playground for a bit. I redeemed our
Chick-Fil-A coupons courtesy of slickdeals and we enjoyed watching our 3, very sociable, children interact with the other kids.
On the way home, we stopped off at a firehouse where our friend Robert, from church, works. He gave the kids a tour and let them play on the truck. It was really fun for them.
Then we came home to get our water back to normal again. Yes, that's the main reason we spent the entire day out of the house. We "shocked" the water lines with bleach. You would not believe the yuck that can build up in your pipes over time. I will blog about this tomorrow. I really need to get to bed. I can barely keep my eyes open.
We are having a rummage sale tomorrow to help fund the trip to Haiti.........what busy lives we lead........

sounds like and looks like a fun time. can't believe michael likes the gators...who likes the orange and blue color combination? yuck!

So it is true. Michael is the smart one in the family. I have no hard feelings towards the other schools. I find it admirable that those who can't get into UF still want to go to college.

Looks like a fun family field trip day. That was nice of Robert to give your family a tour. I have to agree with Michael on the Gators. Of course my son in law is in the Gator Law program so I am a huge fan. Has Robin not seen your living and dining room combination-hummmmmmmmm LOL

Jena said...

Could Melissa be a closet Gator fan???? The subconscious can be a very powerful thing.
