Surfing Competition Cocoa Beach

For the past while I have been *dreaming* plans up of taking the family somewhere to watch a surf competition. Brent and I have discovered a real love for the beach (I always knew I had it…but May’s trip to Mission Beach put it in full force) and think it would be so fun to watch a surfing competition….Brent would love to take lessons and get good – I’m a disappointing wife and am much too chicken (there are sharks…

*Halloween-After* Party

My kids birthdays have come and gone….End of September and the Beginning of October (6 days apart). Because most of my daughter’s friends have siblings Jonah’s age, I’ve always done their parties together. A lot of kids and a lot of fun! This year was no different, except I was not on my game and only this past weekend got around to doing their party. It was awesome. About 30 kids took over the house, along with some fantastic friends…
