I thought this was so funny! I had to take a picture.

Our adventure is coming to an end. It makes me sad. I've enjoyed every day of being down here. Even if it decided to get warm at the last minute... Ok. So maybe it was warm. But it seemed to me like it was cold.

Last night we went to Carrabba's. Talk. About. The. Best. Meal. Ever.

I love shirley temples! The waiter re-filled my glass lots. Yummo!

Our cousin Jeni's husband works there so we got to see him too.

We walked on the beach yesterday and went to the pool.

As in other years, tonight, we're having my cousins over. That happens after we eat dinner with my aunt and uncle.

We leave tomorrow morning. Early. Ugh.

Mom and Daniel on our way to the beach.

It was the first time I ever played.

Daniel & I

Daniel, very focused.

Shuffle board! It was fun.

I like to take pictures of things like this.

I love these banana stickers! I want to start a collection!
The bottom 2 photos are from St. Augustine. I'll put more pictures on later.
So last Monday, we went to St Augustine. It's the oldest city in the U.S. You can see the oldest schoolhouse! {We didn't go inside... But you can see all you want from outside of the building}
My Mom, Grandma, Emily & I went to the Lightner Museum {that's where I got the sticker pictures} It was so interesting! I really liked the ballroom they had.
Last night, Daniel and I tried {My first time} shuffle board!
I actually beat him too!
I really enjoyed it...
After we played, we went to the beach to walk around, see the sights, and search for shells.
My Poppy, Gram & Dan are leaving at 6:00 tomorrow morning.
So I'm already missing them.
I miss Lacey too.
I think it's time to go home...
We leave on Monday, so I'll be going home soon enough.

That's what I'm doin' these days

At the zoo!

Wildlife refuge... Goofing off.

Sitting nicely on the bench... Unlike some people.

Trying to do a trick. Unsuccessful. =]
These are all the things I've been doing on top of visiting family, some school, and chilling.
{Can't forget the library!}
Today we're going to chill at the pool/beach for most of the day.
Why am I sitting here blogging then?
I am wearing my swimming suit.
I'm just waiting for my mother to get back from the library!
So. I'd like to get out there asap, but I have to wait.
Let's go!
p.s. when I saw all the comments I got on my last post, it made me glad.

Wedding Time!

The Church

The bridal party

Father daughter dance
A gorgeous table next to ours.
Our table..

You fill this up with the cookies of your choice.

The dining room..

Shirley Temple!

I love realty.

{Don't ask me what we were doing. Crazy.}

This weekend, Jeni {my cousin} got married. I had the most wonderful time possible. They had a photo booth, cookie bar, {jars full of every cookie you could imagine!}, and delicious food, fantastic company (you can never talk to your family too much! Plus I danced too. Ok, so I never dance. I guess it's just not really my thing. But, for this occasion, {Jeni said if she had to dance I did too!} I did.

So. The most amazing wedding I've ever been to.

Now... I want someone else to get married.


Don't worry. I'm not Emma the second. I won't go messing up peoples lives... =]

Have a marvelous week!

Rehearsal Dinner

Deviled eggs!


Parlor. So pretty..

The overhead chandelier

My mom, Perky, Bruce & Daniel

Daniel reading a book

Emily and I

What a wonderful few days it has been! Two nights ago we went to Edward and Jeni's dinner reception. They had it at Edward's aunts house. I absolutely loved the house! It was so beautiful. It reminded me of our friends house in Louisiana. The food was magnificent as well. It was very interesting talking to all my relatives. I know I'll be so sad when they all leave. Now that the wedding is over, most of them will be going home soon.
I'll post the photos from the wedding later.
I have to edit them still...
I took a lot.
Have a good Sunday!

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Oh yes.

Sorry. No idea. It just looks cool. Haha!

I'm thinking this is supposed to say "smile man"? Not sure...

Daniel with his cinnamon roll.
Are they related? Yes. Perky & Daniel

Pappa, Uncle Bruce & Uncle Tom.

Yummy! =]

Grill's. The yummiest place to eat in the whole wide world! It can't be beat. Sorry Perkin's. {I actually haven't eaten there in probably about... 6 years?} I don't plan on eating anywhere else for breakfast ever again. So this morning I had to drag myself out of bed, take a shower and leave right after! But it was so worth it. I got a tee shirt from them last year. I wear it with pride!

Tomorrow is my cousin's wedding, I'm so excited!

xoxo, leah

Oh how I love

My little brother. I love him. Sometimes I get a little annoyed with him, but hey, who else wants to swim with me in the pool? =]

Sista, Pop & Leah

So. Tomorrow morning, we go to Grill's. Talk about the bestest {I know, I know. It's not really a word.} restaurant in the world! I'll give you an update on that later. Hopefully I'll remember to bring my camera! {note to self: bring camera tomorrow!}
I need to take more photos too.
I mean, this is the best month of my life!
I need to be taking pictures 24/7!
Have a great week!
And weekend.

Life is good

~Me and my mommy~

I think I belong here. Florida, where it's warm and sunny all the time and people drive really crazy, with palm trees! I always get so excited when I see palm trees for the first time. Ahhh now that it's warmed up a little {a lot...} So that means swimming! Plus, I'm getting tan. Yessss.. This is the life! =]
Have an amazing Tuesday!
{I love vacations.}

Sunday, March 7, 2010

No swimming yet...

{I actually wasn't cold! It's not that bad out...}

Florida. In March.

You would think I would be whining about being too hot. I don't think so. I am wearing jeans and a t-shirt right now... I can't believe it! My mom said "no swimming until it's above 70 degrees."

Dear God, Please warm up the weather. I would be very glad. Love, Leah.

Well my brother just told me he was going swimming with dad... Hmmm... Heheheheh! I don't know if it will fly or not. But for now, I'll blog. I have been having some technical difficulties with my iPod. I called Apple, and got some help. So. The problem is that I have a passcode on my iPod so that a certain person won't use it if I'm gone. When I was on the car trip, I took it off so that I wouldn't have to deal with it, cause this person wasn't with.

So, I re-activated the passcode 2 days ago. I typed it in once. Then later, I wanted to check the weather so I typed in the passcode. Nope. It wouldn't work. I have no idea what happened. So, as of right now, My iPod is disabled because I tried to type in a bunch of passwords so many times. What I have to do is plug it into the computer...


The computer is at home.

Maybe this is a sign I need to spend more time with my family instead of on there?

I don't over do it or anything. I just use it a lot.

I'm sorry I keep ranting. It just feels good to tell someone about my problems. Lucky you! You get to hear it all. =]

If this all makes no sense, I don't really get the whole thing either.

Monday, March 1, 2010

Hey Y'all!

Paula Deen's restaurant... We didn't eat here but we stopped in her store. [it says "hey y'all'' on the sign...]


Leopold's ice cream. This was so named after me! =]

Emily & I at the fountain...

Mom and Emily by a cute house

A Paris inspired store.

Emily and I by a cute little wagon.. =]
So. This weekend has been pretty much amazing. Savannah, I love you. I adore being here.... But I think I need some warmth. You understand don't you? I mean, I really like FL too. {my conversation with Savannah could go on, but I'll stop here.} We have probably walked a thousand miles. At least that's what it feels like. We haven't used the car since we got here. Tomorrow, we head to FL.
Which is exciting.
I miss my little brother. And my Pappa.
They will join us in FL soon enough...
I'm sorry I haven't kept up on here. It's pretty busy 'round here.
Have a good week!
