My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


Post-Cruise Friday Mish Mash, Part One

We are back. Man oh man, what an adventure...

We left Friday afternoon for Montgomery- which is about half way to the Port of Mobile. Faith had no idea what was up... she didn't notice the luggage in the back of the car, she didn't question when we drove 3 hours for "dinner".

We ate at a Western Sizzlin in Opelika, AL around 8pm (which we used to have here, but it closed a few years back). We kept telling her that it was one of Jef's fave places (totally true) and she had a big steak (as did we). After dinner, back to the car and on down the road about another hour. We got a hotel room and rested up* for the night.

*Faith rested... Ava is used to being laid down in a crib to sleep. No crib here- she was up til about 2am romping and playing. Finally, she dozed off and we slept until 6am.

Finally arriving in Mobile, we still had hours before the cruise ship (Carvinal Holiday!) would let us board so we all decided to prowl around the USS Alabama Battleship memorial. There was a huge ship (the USS Alabama) and tons and tons of airplanes ranging from bombers to jets to a Coast Guard Albatross (which Jef LUVVED... he wanted to take it home). After a couple hours there we headed for lunch at Mickey D's. We drove past the Holiday, and asked Faith, "So do you want to see if they will let us look around that ship too?". She was all, "Oh yeah oh yeah!".

We ate, drove back over to the Holiday and went to the parking deck. They had to check IDs and boarding passes to let us in the parking garage, but Faith still had no idea what was going on! Finally, after having a porter take our checked bags, etc. I asked Faith if she'd figured it out yet? She gave me a clueless look.

Me: Faith, we are going on a cruise!
Faith: Whhhaaattt?!?!?!
Me: Yes- we are going TODAY on a cruise on THIS BOAT!
Faith: (Confusion. Excitement.) YAY!
Me: We are going to Mexico... Progresso and Cozumel.

She almost cried.

To be continued....

(Keep the fun going while you wait for Installment #2 with this neeto Jewelry website!!)
