Lack of direction (and Memorial Weekend photos!)

I really feel as if my blog has lost its sense of direction lately. I started it as a way to keep track of (and share!) my genealogy research and then it kind of morphed into a creature beyond recognition! I've always been extremely cautious about sharing too much personal information on here, but as I've learned in the past few weeks, it doesn't take much for someone to take advantage of. With that being said, I'm having a hard time figuring out where I want to take this thing!

On a much happier note, Jim and Marlene came down to celebrate Memorial Weekend with us. It rained both Saturday and Sunday, but we stole the few hours of sun (and clouds!) we could! We took the jet boat out for the first time on Saturday and rode the pontoon boat up the river Sunday afternoon/evening. We had a wonderfully, relaxed weekend!

Busy, Busy

It was recently pointed out to me that I've done a not-so-great job of keeping my blog updated. I've had good intentions, but life has kept me pretty busy lately. I didn't realize how much time I was spending online until I cut most of it out!

Honey and the puppies are doing great. They opened their eyes last Friday and they're figuring out how to walk without losing their balance and rolling over. A couple of them have already figure out how to fight/wrestle with their siblings and it's the cutest thing ever. We're thinking about keeping the runt who happens to look just like her daddy! :)

We finally started working on our lake house again. I really hope it gets finished sometime this summer. It'll be nice to go down there just for fun instead of work! We're having a big Memorial Day cookout this weekend and I told Brett that other than cutting the grass, I don't want to do a darn thing work-related!

The biggest news is that I finally opened my online shop! Thanks to the talented Danielle, the website is up and running. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter. :)

We'll be holding a great giveaway when our Facebook page gets 250 followers and I'm planning something REALLY special when we get a good number of Twitter followers, too!

Fort Pickens

A rainy forecast

couldn't stop us

from having a great time

out at Fort Pickens

with some wonderful friends.

We explored tunnels,

checked out the old cannons,

climbed to the top of fort,

and watched the waves before the rain moved in.

We made plenty of stops

to take turns

taking pictures.

We only got lost once

and after a few more wrong turns

we finally stumbled upon

the way out...just as it started to rain!
