Amelia Island

Jeff and I got to go to Amelia Island in Florida last weekend. He was presenting some research he had done and I tagged along. Grandma Karen and Papa Dave came in town to watch the kiddos. It was our first time leaving the kids! They had so much fun without us and we did enjoy our time without kids as well. We went to the Beach, slept in, relaxed, played tennis, rented bikes, swam in the ocean, ate lots of yummy food, hung out with friends and other residents, rented a movie and Had Lots of Fun!

Children's Museum

It is " Spring Break " here so we have been busy all week doing lots of fun things. One of the days we went up to the cities with our friends the Brewers. We went to the Children's Museum first and the kids had a blast. Then we hit the Mall Of America and had a fun time there too. It was a long hard day of Playing! Here are LOTS of pictures. They are a little out of order or Backwards in sequence. (sorry) the mini Merry-go -round at the MOA (the kids wanted to go on the rides (but mom didn't have the time or $ this time around- so i let them do this one and they got there ride fix)
