MINI FAMILY VACATION!!!!!

Oh....em....geeeeeee!!!!! We had a BLAST in St. Augustine.....took ALL the tours - even the ghost and gravestones night tour and they were all amazing. Visited the oldest wooden school (WOW)....the Old Jail (WOWZA) and even drank water out of the Fountain of Youth......ya think it's going to help any?? LOL There is SOOOO much history in that little town. We had PERFECT weather....45-47 degrees in the morning and the high during the day was 65-70 degrees......it was breeze the entire time. If you are ever in N/E FL area, you MUST visit St. Augustine.

As you can imagine, we took over 500 pictures. I will be making a few 8 x 10 collage pages for Project Life as well as a couple 12 x 12 layouts of family photos.

This weekend hubby and I will continue to work in my scrap room so that hopefully by next weekend he can work on closing up the sliding glass door. I want to get it done so I can work in there....I miss my crafting :(

OK, I will leave you with some of the photos from this weekend!!

Chit chat soon!!

Hugs, T

On the way up, I experimented with my camera and took a few pictures from the mirror on my sun visor:

CASTILLO DE SAN MARCO (The Fort)




Ya think guys in the old days were short???? LOL Hubby barely fit through the door LOL

OK.....The Lighthouse.....this was an AMAZING place. We climbed all the way to the top (219 steps) and then back down (219 steps)......yeah I woke up with pains in my thighs and calves LOL but it was ALL worth it. The view from the top was incredible.....
