flying south



'the world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful'


Busy packing today. I'm escaping the dreary weather, and heading south for a brief sojourn in the sunshine state. I'm taking the littlest sis, as the others can't miss school. It will be Rosie's first time on a plane. Excitement with a capital E. She's had a tough winter, and I think a little time in the sun might be the best medicine.

Rosie's worried the swimming pool might have a resident alligator. Let's hope that's not the case.

Ooo, no alligators! My in-laws used to take us to a condo that had a sign as you walked to the beach - "Please close gate to keep out alligators." The first time I saw it I asked my husband if his parents didn't like me! ;) Thankfully, in all our visits we never saw a single alligator. Have a lovely time!

Alligators? Maybe Captain Hook too? Disneyworld is near,,,hopefully just the cartoon type of alligator will be visiting that pool! Or was that a crocodile? I forget!

Have fun enjoying the sunshine!!

That baby girl deserves as much sunshine and Vitamin D as she would like. Have a wonderful time making some memories with her.

I hope you have a lovely trip. How fun to just go with one child at a time. A wonderful memory for certain.

I hop the two of you have the best time and get lots, but no too much sun.

Maybe there will just be an inflatable alligator! (But I remember the inflatable shark that terrified my grand kids...)

Have fun in the sun!

I bet the sun is just what the doctor ordered. Hope it's a wonderful get-away!

As for your post about spring...I so wish I could love it. But I'm just scared to death of tornadoes so I find myself dreading spring's arrival and wishing it away. Maybe I should just move to Santa Fe where they don't have any crazy weather? Your blanket of snow did look pretty, though!

Oh how perfect for the two of you! I am happy to read this, although a bit later...

Any way, tell Rosie I checked the pools for her 3 weeks ago and they were clear. The beaches: same thing.

Enjoy sweet ladies! In my mind I am travelling with you...
