The following is a smattering of shots throughout the afternoon!!

Florida Travels!

In March we oldest 4 at home took a quick trip to Florida to visit our Uncle & Aunt and cousins! It was a great trip for the 4 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together!!! It is a special time for us all to be still at home yet, and we are treasuring the memories we are collecting.
On Thursday we enjoyed a day in Orlando with Bethany & Jessica! Visiting the WonderWorks house, going mini-golfing and shopping for souvenirs.
Best Friends for Life!!!

Elizabeth & Esther.

If you have too much muscle, your golfball may have to be rescued from the water!!

Bethany, Elizabeth, Esther & Noah.

It was a Pirate-themed golf course-- very fun!

They lost........soooo........they ended up in the stocks.
On Friday morning we were able to tour the Parelli Center in Ocala. Noah used the Parelli program/methods in training his horses, so he was full of questions!!! It was a beautiful day to spend time out in the sunshine! The Florida sunshine is BRIGHT!
Esther & Elizabeth

Noah & Aunt Sarah!

Spanish Moss!
The Parelli Ranch!

We enjoyed a pretty extensive tour of the large facility! It was fascinating to hear about their resourcefullness-- their ranch was formerly a zoo. They have chosen to use the old buildings instead of erecting new ones to save money and other resources. They even continue to use the old giraffe house with 25 foot tall doorways!! :)

Excited Noah!

With our tour guide!

With Uncle Dan & Aunt Sarah!
Noah & Esther.

Walking and talking!
We also enjoyed a wonderful baby-shower for Jessica & James' son, due April 13th!! And Saturday was Bethany & Adam's wedding, a very full day!
It was a short visit but we greatly enjoyed our time to catch-up and spend face to face time with them!! Thank-you so much for your hospitality Uncle Dan & Aunt Sarah!
