We've Returned

Life has finally begun to return back into the normal swing of things since we returned from our long vacation. A week away in the woods at FPG was good for us all but now it's back to the normal day to day.

A recap of what has occurred since I last posted. Lil' R had a blast on Halloween. IMG_4905 He had a blast with Daddy going from house to house. We under-estimated the number of children we would have come by the house and ran out of candy. Next year we know to get another 2 bags. We also had friends over prepping for the camping trip by pre-cooking many of our meals. Amidst the cooking around 9:30pm the power for the entire neighborhood went out, including the nearby Super Walmart. It took almost 2 hours for it to come back on. Luckily for the sake of the food we were only simmering a pot of beef stew at the time so it survived perfectly fine. Overall though it was a wonderful night to be had spent with friends. Actually for the entirety of my vacation we were constantly surrounded by people and that was a great change from our normally very quiet life. By the end of it though I was happy to just come home and catch the Season Finale of Tool Academy with the Hubby.

While out in the wood of Ocala National forest we did enjoy ourselves. We got to see some wildlife, including Sandhill Cranes, a black bear, and heard tale of an alligator in the lake but no one ever caught site of him. There was also the normal friendly visits of the camp dogs. Two of our good friends were married whilst we were out there and it was a beautiful ceremony and boy what a spread of food did they put out. All and all we came back with loads of wonderful stories. We spent some great time with some of our dearest friends and got to connect a bit better with a few other people. I already can't wait until the next one in May.

Happy Friday the 13th Everyone!

  1. Sounds like a great time. The Ocala National Forest is great!! When we lived in Gainesville area we went there occasionally for camping or just hiking. Glad you had a good vacation.
