From Snow Cream to Sting Rays

Here in the good ol' south...which we live in for it's warmth and has snowed a lot this year. So for the very first time ever I made snow cream. And the kids loved it!

And since we were tired of all this snow a couple of weeks ago we headed down to Tampa to visit with hubby's twin brother and his family.

We celebrated their 36th birthday while we were there.

We spent a lot of time doing baseball things...since 3 of ours play and their 2 boys play. Our girls weren't too excited about that, but we did get to see the kids big sister since she lives in Florida and came over for the weekend. We headed off to Rays Fan Fest and the kids enjoyed feeding the sting rays...well except Princess. She thought it was gross!
I can't blame her though....I didn't want to hold dead fish in the water for a stingrays to take it out of my hand either.

Uncle Dave helped the boys while daddy helped the girls.

And Little Monkey wanted to get right in!

They had batting practice set up for the kids.

And even some pitching stations...which I gladly participated in.

Oh how I miss my softball days. I played from the time I was 5 until I got pregnant with Princess my senior year. And I miss getting out there and relieving some stress hitting that ball like it was my worst enemy.
And then we headed off to my nephews baseball game. Our kids really enjoyed watching their cousins play..and Little Monkey enjoyed sitting like a big boy with his big sisters.

And for those of you hanging on my every word waiting to hear about my weigh in...hahaha....It went great! I lost another 2.8 pounds! That's 5.3 since we started The BLC. 8 weeks to go and I'm right on track. Thank you for all your kind words of encouragement.


  1. Way to go on the weight loss!!! You are doing awesome! I played softball from 5 years old until I was in high school. Then I separated my shoulder when I was a sophmore so I did not get to play anymore :( Have a great weekend!

  2. Great weight loss!!

    Love the pictures! Adorable!

  3. Awesome job on your weight loss!

    We made snow ice cream last year, and I was not impressed with it. I'm not a fan of vanilla ice cream anyway though.

    Loved all the pictures!
