Pedicures, the Pool and Toucans...

Yesterday started out with girl time. My sister-in-law Trisha, my niece Morgan, my step-daughter Kate and I went out for pedicures, then we went out to lunch at Olive Garden!
Steffie B! We each bought the Bath & Body Works Lip Plumping lip gloss and it works!! We have Angelina Jolie lips....


I took Eli into a swimming pool for the first time and he loved it. He was very afraid at first, but by the time I got him out-shivering with blue lips and still telling me wasn't cold-he relaxed and was kicking his feet and dog paddling with his hands.


Katelyn is having a great vacation. All I see are miles of smiles!


Eli would throw things into the water and Katelyn and Morgan would dive under and get them for him. He loved it!

Dinner was at Toucan's on Mexico Beach. The food is wonderful and the environment is a blast! Eli played on the slides and swings along the beach. Everyone got a trip souvenir at their gift shop.

Here is Eli swinging. Can you see my red toes?? Maybe not.


The kids started a volleyball game on the beach with some other teenagers who were there. They had a great time.

Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum-Panama City FL

Today we decided to visit the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.

Kate looks a little concerned...

This is an actual shrunken human head...

This screen would mimic your movements, it was really cool.

This is a lifesize wax figure of the largest man who ever lived.

This is a replica made out of matchsticks of the coliseum in Rome.

Oh, and don't let me fail to mention that we now have 4 new pets. Yes folks, I am now transporting 4 saltwater hermit crabs home. I have had to purchase a crab habitat for them and pull up all kinds of info on the web. All for the love of an 11 year old boy who fell in love with them on the beach.

Bonita Bay Beach Bums!


Today we went to Bonita Bay and had a great time on the beach. It's about 80 degrees here and a little overcast. The beach was filled with hermit crabs. Eli was amazed by them. After the beach, we all went out for ice cream. Our vacation is starting out great!
