This vacation has been a whirl wind of activities. Everyday is go, go, go! Our children picked up pamphlets for many different activities and had an itinerary for us all their own. It was pretty funny actually to hear them with their list. "First we will do the Horse riding, then the golf, then the candy mirror maze." then Kopelan would add in, "and see the transformers." I do have to report we have rode horses, played golf, went through a mirror maze, candy store and the Knoxville zoo. It has been so fun!

KC had to fly home yesterday and so we drove into knoxville to drop him at the airport. Sad to see him go as I hate that he does not get to spend as much time on vacation as me and the kids. He is the reason we get to do these trips and it sucks that his job ties him down so much. One day this will not be the case I know this. Anyways we took advantage of being in Knoxville and visited the Knoxville Zoo. Being a member of the Palm Beach Zoo we got entry for free (SCORE!!!) for all of us. It rained off and on, but we all made the best of it and enjoyed seeing all the different animals. I enjoy going to Zoo's with the kids as I know it will not be to many more years where they will want to do amusement parks and other exciting things. Zoo's will be become to babyish. So for now we will see the zoo's, everyone so unique from one another.

Today is our last full day. We are moving slowly today, but that is okay. The kids want to play board games with Mimi and Papa and that is okay with me. They are enjoying their time just being around my parents and I am loving just watching them.

Road Trip

So we left yesterday March 11th on a road trip to Gatlinburg, TN. We started our trip at 6:30pm arriving in Jacksonville, FL 4 hrs later. We stayed with some great friends over night and headed out early this morning. We had an 8 hr plus stops drive to arrive in Gatlinburg. Kids honestly did soooooo good. The drive was pretty uneventful. No car trouble (thank you God), no meltdown (by the kids or parents), all in all pretty good. We enjoyed our time together, singing, watching movies and celebrating with Kendall as she LOST HER 2ND Tooth!! Can you believe it! Tooth number 2. So both bottom teeth are gone. She looks so cute and grown up all at the same time. WOW! Of course we had are scrambling tonight for tooth fairy money, lol! Kendall assured us that the tooth fairy goes everywhere, so she is not worried.

Okay on another note we get to Gatlinburg, and get checked into our cabin, get unpacked, all is good. K.C. takes the kids to ride their bikes and get some energy out while I put everything away and call out for dinner. While I am putting stuff away I notice spots on the white bedding, upon a closer look, I notice they are ladybugs. Upon further exploring I find many ladybugs around the cabin, like over 10. So I call the front desk to ask about this ladybug invasion. The man says, yes he is aware and yes they are everywhere. I guess the national park up the road releases them and now they have left their home and found homes in everybody else's homes. Sort of gross, you may say but they are just ladybugs, well imagine looking up at the light fixture and it being completely black around the inside. Needless to say we will be calling in the morning to have them removed. We have decided they must like the heat of the lights and we will be leaving the lights on all night praying that they will stay put. They better.

Oh Wow!!

Oh WOW!! I am bad at this blogging thing. To finish up the very last post I did, yep I still have no green thumb and I killed every single plant we tried to grow. Go figure. So flash forward not months, but years now. Yes it has been years since my last post. Told you I was bad at this. HAHA!!

We had a great time while living in Riverview, FL. We enjoyed making many new friends and had lots of foster children come through are home. Now flash forward YEAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR!

So we are currently residing in Jupiter, FL! KC has gotten a new job and we are living the beach life, lol!! Kendall is now 5 1/2yrs old and in VPK. Kopelan is 3yrs old and attending preschool. I am still in shock at how fast my children are growing. Isn't there a tupperware or something that I can use to slow the growth, preserve their sweet little faces and tiny bodies. Maybe I should invent that, I know it would be a seller to all the mother's out there. HAHA!

I guess that is all I have, I am sure you all would like to see some updated photos so if I can figure out how to get them on here, you can enjoy them.
