January Recap

January came and went quickly.
Here's our month in pictures.

Vaughan and Sarah wanted one last date night before baby #3 and so Steve and I hunkered down for a night with the grands and their niece!

Aubry and I took advantage of a nice, sunny January day in Florida and headed 30 minutes south to hike and check out Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge.

Aubry and I also took an afternoon and evening and headed north to Jacksonville where we learned a lot about that city, including seeing this oak tree!!

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time and you haven't tried Geocaching yet then I'm sorry because you are missing out. We grabbed our friend Sanja and hiked a new loop trail in town with 9 caches!! 

For Christmas I gave Steve a years worth of dates.
Once a month we will be "traveling" to a different place. January had us going to "New England". Steve doesn't know where the date is until the night before when he opens an envelope. This month New England meant the Chowder Fest on Flagler Ave. Who knew you could fill up on chowder 1 ounce at a time!!

I have this new travel blog going on and my son Vaughan and his family took advantage of one of the trips, of course he had been there before, and visited Ravine Gardens State Park. It was a perfect day out before baby #3.

Speaking of baby #3, let me introduce my newest grandchild!! Jackson Timothy, born peacefully at home and delivered by mom and dad.

So that is what the month of January looked like. 
Beyond that I am working to update the travel blog so local Central Floridians can get out and enjoy all our state has to offer as well as build relationships and make memories. I have dreams for this blog to be a blessing and maybe make me some money at some point? God knows and with that I am satisfied.

Thanks for stopping by

Wow! I had no idea that #3 was coming along! Congratulations and how great that they were able to have the baby at home.

Missy, she was able to have the last two at home and this time she delivered before the midwife arrived so Vaughan delivered the baby!!
