My pretty ballet princess :)

Hannah had her first "real" ballet recital, on a real stage, and yes, she was a real ballerina!  She was so worried the whole week before, she kept telling me, " Mom, I have stage fright!"  But we practiced a little and and her fear tuned into excitement.  She loved every second on the stage.  I can't help getting so excited for her and her journey to find her talents.  Love you Hannah, you are my little star! 

 I could not choose between color and black & white, so I put both versions. :)

Video of one of Hannah's dances. For all our grandma's and grandpa's! :)

We went on a boat tour of a swamp in Georgia.  It was so fun and our "boat captain" looked like he was from the show Swamp People.  Ha! We only saw a few gators, but the scenery was beautiful!  When we got on the boat the clouds looked like they were going to burst!  They did right in the middle of our tour, but the calm after the storm was amazing!!! It was like nothing I had ever experienced.  Definitely something to be remembered!  It just so happened that they were having a little "open house" that day.  The kids got to play games, make a fan, and eat some yummy food! 

 This is after the storm.

Sea world, St. Augustine, Beach, Disney Halloween!

One weekend we drove to Orlando to go to Sea World for the day.  It was really hot, but the shows were amazing!  We had a blast! 

There is nothing in the world that makes me more happy than being on the beach with my family!  

 We had SO MUCH FUN!!! It might have been the best Disney night we had! We came into the park at 7pm and stayed until mid-night!  It was so magical!  We did not get back to our hotel until 2am, all kids still away!  All hoped up on Disney magic!

Sandy toes and salty kisses

I am finally getting around to posting these up.  I love each and every picture and wish that I could share them all with you but I am sure that it would be over 1000 pictures!  It was so much fun looking though all of them and reminiscing with my kids!  I have decided to post pictures within several blog posts.  Here is group number one!
