One of my favorite pictures

This post will be simple.  A collection of photos that led up to one of my favorite pictures.

Location:  Howard Park Beach, Tarpon Springs, FL

T found this....
And began experimenting....
and experiementing....

Realized it made him look like he was standing on the water.

Tried different poses and positions
Eventually, did this... 
It says so much... Mostly, that he loves the outdoors and is thankful.  Enjoy the simple moments.

Birthday Week

Yep... I said it (again).  It's Birthday Week.  What is Birthday Week, you ask?  Well, it's the way we celebrate birthdays at  my house.

Mostly it is simple stuff like choosing the radio station we listen to in the car, what we watch if we all watch TV and at least some of the dinners we eat during the week.

As a bonus, my mom and I  always have a slice of birthday pie, light a candle and she sings Happy Birthday at the exact time that I was born... 10:02 pm.  So, at least at this age... I get to stay up later for dessert. :)

An Excellent View....

 Gotta love this view of T on his bike ride home from school.  Some days might get too hot down here, but the view of palm trees for some reason is always fantastic.  Everyone should have their own way to stop and smell the roses... and let it change often.  What view in your life always relaxes you and makes you smile?

Wonder what this little guy would say about Trump today?

Wonder what this little guy would say about Trump today?

The comments that people make on the internet amaze me.  If I start to read the comments below this video on YouTube I can rarely make it all the way through.  We stayed away from the "spotlight" after this experience.  It wasn't what we wanted to spend our time or energy on....but, while I still remember I want to note.....

The background behind Tanner is still dark.  It was no later than 6 a.m., probably earlier.  He had been racing from interview to interview for days and was coming down with a cold.  I understand as his mom I'm probably the only one who can hear it in his voice... and in order to get through the interview he had taken cold medicine, which he rarely does, if ever.

The town car picked him up at like 4 a.m. to get him from Rockford to Chicago.  He was not in the same room as the interviewer (hence, the split screen). He was exhausted, sick, medicated and had been up for hours -- not to mention he's 8!!!  He still was aware enough to share his opinion of Mr. Trump-- even a child knows his behavior is mean.  With all the resources Trump has available to him you would think he could accomplish his goals-- with a little more sophistication.

Charlie Chaplin: One of my favorites

Ryder Cup 2012 are you ready?


These handsome gentlemen will be checking out the
Ryder Cup today.

It's a practice day with the Opening Ceremony at 4 p.m.

Can't wait to hear the stories....

They should be pretty funny with this bunch. 
I promise to share.

We are selling it all.....

 It's true.  Selling all our stuff and heading south for the winter.  I have a ton of stuff.  I am saving the money I make for the sale to go to Boy Scout Jamboree in July 2013.  It feels weird and good to sell all my stuff.  It's weird because I got it because I wanted it and I do like it all.  It's good because I get to let it go to someone else who might like it even more than I do.

If you were getting rid of EVERYTHING... what are 3 things you know you would want to keep?
