If you live near the beach, you can – at any time – have dinner by the ocean and it always feels like a vacation. Shannon and I went to Waldo’s last night. It’s a popular place to eat at the Driftwood Resort. Humidity was low and the air in the late seventies. This blog post is just a small note to point out that now matter how much work there is to do (and we all know how busy I keep), it never hurts to stop and take in the ocean air.
Or, in my wife’s case, the whale cookie.
I was born in the seventies. My wife: the eighties.
“You know, we should have lived in the sixties. We’d have totally fit in there. The only thing that would have sucked? We would have lived through the seventies.”
Pause. She looks at me.
“Oh wait. Nevermind.”
My princess and Katie McAwesome ran the Disney’s Princess Half Marathon this past weekend. They both did the run in less than three and a half hours – and this included time to stop and take photos of characters along the way! (The rest of the photos are here.)
Needless to say, I am VERY proud of my “princess”
A new bra!
Merry Christmas to all my friends, family and Internet buddies. I lead a blessed life with all of you in it – thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Four short videos for your amusement this year:
Jason & Celeste posted photos from their wedding.
After a few eventful days in the Nation’s Capitol, Shannon and I decided to break the drive up into a couple of days. We made a couple of interesting stops:
SOUTH OF THE BORDER: My parents drove past this all the time when I was a child. For those of you not familiar with it, South of the Border is a cheesy tourist trap right off of I-95 located the southern border of North Carolina and South Carolina. Dozens of billboards featuring “Pedro” and a slew of bad puns encourage you to stop by and see the place. Shannon and I decided to make the stop for ourselves – and it was every bit as bad as you’d expect. We decided to brave the excitement of taking the elevator to the top of Pedro’s hat and see the view of two states and an highway. How much did it cost you ask? To go to the top of the sombrero via elevator costs only one dollar!!!
MYRTLE BEACH, SC: I had heard about Myrtle Beach for years, but it was one of those places my family had never gotten around to visit. The town is very much “Orlando by the sea” with many attractions I would expect to find on International Drive or Downtown Disney. Among the places we saw while there: The Hard Rock Cafe (shaped like a pyramid), Planet Hollywood (still open?!), The KISS Coffeehouse (I’m not kidding), Senior Frogs (amusing), Margaritaville (larger than Orlando’s), and Cheeseburger in Paradise (awesome). While there is a lot of nice shopping and pretty beaches, the “things to do” list is rather limited. It was nice to visit, but I couldn’t see vacationing there.
You can see all the new pics since the last post starting with this one.
Yesterday we made it home and (this morning) as I write this, Shannon and I have been officially married for two years. I’m a lucky man. :)
