We went to a birthday part at one of those trampoline places. I've never taken the kids because I hear it's just too dangers for them. The party was in the morning and we were pretty much the only ones there. The kids had a great time and so did the parents. I can see how it would stress me out if there were a bunch of teenagers there though.

A lot of people have requested to see this video over the years. It's me at my last gymnastics competition. It was a national competition in Las Vegas. I was 12. This is my floor routine. I scored a 9.3 and placed 10th out of about 200. It was the highlight of my little gymnastics career.

I know I'm slacking on blogging, but life has been getting in the way. I had computer issues for 2 weeks, I painted my photography studio space, it was Teacher Appreciation Week for Hunter and I'm the room mom, Peyton has been in swim lessons every night the past 2 weeks, and we're about to go on a mini vacation to celebrate our anniversary. So, here are some phone pictures to tide you over.
Hunter begged me to take him to Skate Night for school. The first and last time he skated was over a year ago at a birthday party. It went so great we never went back. He did MUCH better this time, but it was still hilarious. I need to put some video off of my phone.
We took the kids out to Deland so Daddy (and Hunter) could shoot.
Peyton and I had fun riding the 4 wheels around the property and checking out the old tractors.
Here's the new studio color. It's been red for 10 years. I'll take better pictures once it's decorated.
Peyton is somewhat enjoying swim lessons this year. I'm shocked!
This made me laugh.....
Another soccer season in the books! Their team only lost 1 game!
We spent Mother's Day weekend at the beach. The weather was perfect and it was exactly where I wanted to be.
Sweet Maya came to see us for her first official beach day.
And Ashton came one day, too. My kids love her.

We went to the Easter church service Saturday night. I love it when we can do that. Then Sunday doesn't feel rushed and we can enjoy the day with family. We dressed in our Easter best and I grabbed a few pictures before we left. Then Sunday we had lunch and an egg hunt with the cousins (minus 2) and the rest of the family.

On our last day we decided to take the bucket up the mountain. We tried in the morning, but it was too windy and they closed it. After lunch it reopened so we were able to go up. The car read 33 degrees on the ground. It was definitely in the teens on the top and it was soooo windy on the side where you could walk around.
Not bad for a stranger taking a picture!
Hunter took this one :)
She was not a fan of the cold.
I had to act crazy so she wouldn't think about how cold she was.
Daddy carried her back inside.

We explored the mountain (from the bottom) with the Chaloupeks on the day we arrived and set up the camper. It wasn't too cold that day. The kids had fun running around and see a train scream by right in front of them.
