Our Daughter & Grandson

Well it's Tuesday already. I'm just starting to get bummed, as I know our daughter & grandson are leaving tomorrow. However today was much fun.

I was up and cooking breakfast, for one of my best friends and hopefully a new very good friend, and Braeden comes down the stairs saying "Nana where are you" Ya know if you could hear him talk, he would make your heart melt.

Anyway, then he went through the routine that we all went through at 2 years old. Not wanting to get dressed, or eat, or do anything except what we wanted to do. So we just left him run around, no hurry, Hey it's a mini vacation! Finally after getting Bill & Michelle packed up and ready to go on there way to their next game in NY, Shannon & I "finally" get Braeden dressed and get into the car, (this only took about 45 minutes) The image “http://e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/sarcasticclap.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Anyway, Shannon asked to take Braeden to C.E.C. so we went, he was amazed to say the least. he looked at every game and ride and had to touch each one and say "what's that"

One of the managers there, gave Braeden a balloon as it was his birthday, (he loved that) he also danced to the music. The image “http://img99.exs.cx/img99/8577/yupi3ti.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. He was the hit of C.E.C. We came home and he was asleep before we got home.
Monday was much fun for Dave. He is now getting "buff" what with doing all those "Braeden-ups" you know that exercise you get when you hold their waist and then they jump for 20 minutes on your lap?

Well now that we all know what "Braeden-ups" are, I think Dave must have done well at least 200 on Sunday night and then about 600 Monday night, so I think he is set in the "buff" department for now.

Braeden also thought that the "ferret" peanuts were to be played with outside the box instead of inside, Hmmm he is exactly like the ferrets, they think the same way!!

So picking them up once wasn't good enough for "The Braed" he had to do that 2 more times, I think he was playing a game, "me dump them out & you pick them up!" I didn't much care for that one, then to top it all off our Himalayan cat decided to get in the box and as he got out he carried the "peanuts" everywhere all over the house, at this point, I resign as the picker upper of peanuts, of course now they are everywhere, so I can't resign quite yet.

Our Grandson

Yippee, Our Grandson is coming to visit. All the way from PA. We are soooo very excited, He just turned 2 years old. Wow he is growing up very quickly, I love it when he tells mommy "Talk to gramma" An our daughter calls up and he says "Hi Gamma" Hey he's only 2 he can't pronounce those "r's" yet. He will get there. He loves to talk, I ask him where mommy is and he tells me in that very determined voice "No ME TALK" and then "Hi Gamma" and then comes the "I wuv you gamma" and of course my heart melts, I just let him continue on, catching a few words here and there. I thought motherhood was a wonderful thing, trust me stressful at times, (teens seem to do that to us), but none the less wonderful, when they give you a kiss or say those immortal words, I love you. However, being a grandparent is even better. You can spoil them and never really have to go through the stress. It's pretty cool. So for now this is our new blog. I can't wait until after the weekend, I'm sure we'll have more pics on our gallery then or soon after. He is growing up so very very quickly. He is our little man.
Stay tuned for the next portion of "Our Lives"

Bahamas Cruise

Our vacation started out this past Monday morning at 4am The image “http://www.comicguide.net/images/smilies/gaehn5.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. when we had to get up to meet the limo driver at 5am. I was good, but David and Deanna The image “http://www.radarforum.de/forum/uploads/post-40-1136729949.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. ... well lets say they are not very talkative at that time of the morning. We were whisked away to the airport where we learned that we had a delay, UGH!! Then finally off to Philly, The image “http://img246.imageshack.us/img246/8399/thumbsup4kk.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. where we had another delay.

Did you ever notice when you have a short layover between planes, you have to run from one end of the airport to the other, and then when you have like 2 hours, you end up coming in right next to the terminal you are to fly out of??? I swear they just plan it that way .

So finally we were on our way to Orlando, FL, where we were picked up at the baggage claim and bussed off to our ship. Yet another hour to sit. The image “http://img125.exs.cx/img125/2775/huelga3wl.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Let me ask you. Have you ever felt very insignificant? Let me tell you, looking at the size of this "boat" to say the least makes you feel that way. To even believe that a 12-story hotel with 2 pools, 2 large hot tub jacuzzi's and 2 restaurants, plus a very large buffet with at least 3 different kinds of totally yummy food, The image “http://e.deviantart.com/emoticons/w/w00t.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Spanish,
Italian, American, and others, a full size restaurant that would put some of ours here on land to shame. Many Kinds of Drinks. The image “http://www.foren4all.de/images/smilies/drinks_drunk.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

To even fathom that this 25,000 TONS of metal stays afloat, is unreal.
Then you board her. We had a balcony. It was spectacular!!! You fell in love in a moment. The pure calmness, the solitude, the smell of the water. Then soon you are only surrounded by ocean. I actually got to see dolphins off the balcony, only once and only for a moment, but it was a moment I will never forget.

We had a lot of fun over the next few days, On Cocoa Cay Island, we went swimming in water that was so clear, standing up to my chest in water, I could still very clearly see my toes. I watched fish just swim by. I got a video with my camera of the yellow and black stripped fish just swimming around. A few hours and sunburns later, it was back to the ship.

The next morning we were in Nassau, Bahamas. Having the whole day, we went to a little island called Paradise Island, where they again put us on a little boat and took us to Dolphin Island. This is where, lets just say that Deanna got hit on by the dolphin and almost received a French Kiss from him.

Another day we just sat on our balcony, and enjoyed just watched the water pass by.

The sunset was absolutely gorgeous ! Living on the East Coast you don't see the sun set over the ocean.

David got some very, very beautiful pictures. You can go see them on our website:

http://gallery.dugal.org

It will take me a couple of days to get our vacation pics up there, but we have many albums you can look at until then.

So this was a wonderful, and beautiful vacation. I loved every moment of it.

Any questions, all anyone needs to do is just message me.

Take care.
