Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

The first place we visit when in Washington DC is, of course, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.  This is a must due to my very nerdy men.  My husband, a fifth grade teacher, loves science almost as much as he loves me and that’s a lot.  Our 8 year old son, gifted, cute… Continue reading Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Urban Legend not a Hoax

For many years we heard that there were monkeys living along the Silver River in the Ocala National Forest.  Many people, myself included, felt this to be urban legend.  Well, I have proof it is not.  Back in February we took a canoe trip down the Silver River.  It was such an enjoyable, beautiful day,… Continue reading Urban Legend not a Hoax

Wow, It’s Been A Long Time

Wedding Day

I think this is one time I should let pictures do more of my talking than words. Our wedding was held at the Silver River State Park Museum. A little gem in Ocala, Fl. Our reception was held at the large pavilion near the museum. It was unusual, fun to prepare for and definitely a… Continue reading Wedding Day
