Well, since we used to live in the Keys, and our kids have always grown up there, we deceided to get up Friday morning, and leave quickly, before all of the traffic, and take the kids down for the 4th of July parade that takes place at 10:00am every year. We arrived without any traffic issues, and staked out our spot in front of walgreens, and waited in the florida heat for the parade to begin! Our oldest son, who is a Volonteer Firefighter has always been in the parade, but this year, he was driving the air truck, so his brother and sisters were excited! Not to mention he was supposed to throw "extra" candy to them! If you've ever attended a "Keys" parade, things went as normal! We saw alot of old friends, and had a good time, but were glad to return home! God moved us to Homestead, a few years ago, and we are thankful...for LOTS of reasons, and we are now waiting for him to lead us to our first home ( to purchase ), along with many other things!
We have also been attending ALL of the FREE movies, yes FREE, at the local theater! We have been every week, which has been alot of fun for the kids, as we meet our neighbors there and chill! This week we saw The Veggie Tales Pirate Movie! It was pretty cute! We followed up the movie with a Mocha Frap (from starbucks,of coarse) and a ride on the Merry-go-round!
We still have a few plans for summer, including the "pirate pool" in Key Largo, maybe Anne's beach in the Keys, possibly the Zoo, and whatever comes up unexpectantly!
I have added a few pics for your viewing pleasure, lol...
