Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Under the Blood Moon.

We’re baaaack!!!

Sometimes I find traveling to be more stressful than relaxing, but we really enjoyed ourselves this time. We were in Florida for 8 days and it flew by.

We went wave-running, fishing, beaching, pooling, golf-cart riding, mermaid watching, and ate our weight in Stone Crabs and Grouper. It was a lot of fun.

The trip started like this… with Littlest losing his front tooth.

Remember when it was exciting just to ride a tram car at the airport?

On the first day we went jet skiing, which was rather traumatic for a few of us. There was a lot of concern about sharks. I just held on for dear life and enjoyed watching the dolphins.

Here we are making our daily trek to the pool. We tried to walk a lot in an effort to combat the huge amounts of food that we consumed.

It was great to see Littlest go from being afraid to put his face in the water at the beginning of our trip to being a total daredevil by the end.

The highlight for Biggest was taking our nightly drive in the golf cart.

I may have let him drive a few times (shhh!) so that I could take pictures.

Seriously… look at this view. I didn’t even photoshop it!

The highlight of the trip for me was this. Cross stitching by the pool? YES, PLEASE!

The weather was amazing. We only had one rainy day. The guys went into the pool anyway. I sat under the porch and cross stitched. I could get used to that.

Since the pool was pretty empty that day, the boys thought that it was HILARIOUS to pretend to be floating dead heads in the hot tub. I don’t know whose idea it was, but I have to admit that it was kinda hilarious.

Another highlight of the trip for me was watching my Dad teach the boys to fish. I thought that they would find it boring, but was pleasantly surprised that they really loved it!

We went to Siesta Key and Madiera Beach. They were both so nice. We are used to NJ beaches, so were thrilled with the warm, clear waters in Florida. (Melania! After much searching, I found one perfect shell!)

Tom and I had trouble sleeping one night and it just so happened to by the night of the Lunar Eclipse… Blood Moon! We didn’t want to wake everyone so we looked at it through the window. It looked more pink than red, but so neat. Did anyone else see it?

It was a really special trip for a lot of reasons, but mostly because of these people.

Everything is fun with these three. I’m so thankful for my life.
