Nope, last time I was the ONLY one who chose their answer and stuck with it! NEVER changed it! And people have changed their answers throughout the whole contest, and never gotten credit before the last round!

Again, modifying the rules randomly.............

BAD, BAD, BAD!!!

But then, why am I not surprised...........

Yeah, and unfortunately there's no place nearby at Vero for just a quick jaunt.

At least it rained, so I didn't feel like I wasted some time for too long.

It was more the violent slamming of face into ocean bottom than the remnants of sand, but yeah, that wasn't a good moment. I guess they have those warning flags for a reason, huh?

I love me some free food! I'm not even all that crazy about s'mores. I like the chocolate bars the best, but would rather just eat them and give someone else the graham cracker and marshmallows.

That was kind of a fun song. Yes, I think the boy would've enjoyed how it turned out if he'd stayed. I kind of felt sorry for the CMs, they were just trying to get him involved and have fun.

Ours has shown up after (disappointed) kids have already gotten up and had breakfast.

Sounds like we both needed something in-between. Oh well, that's one thin you can't plan!

I remember your story about how you got attacked on your Turtle Walk, and we didn't have any trouble there. The campfire was a whole 'nother story!

Yes, it was more like what I expected....just jumping between the beach and the pool, with a little mini-golf and hot tub thrown in for good measure.

I will grant that you didn't change your answer. But....like I said, if the Rules Committee had jumped-in at several points before that we could've had several different winners. So, you're ALL winners for that round!

Yeah, yeah, yeah.........again, that could have been the case multiple rounds but you just happened to choose that one for modifying that rule.

BTW, when you DID show up to score the contest, I was the ONLY one who always did and STILL had the correct answer. Everyone else had changed theirs to something else and no longer had the correct answer.........

But again, not surprised............

I'm so glad you got to see a turtle nesting. What a special experience.

The last time Danielle lost a tooth the tooth fairy was a no show. I don't know if she has outgrown it yet but we sure have.

Sorry for your tumble in the water. I hate the feeling of not knowing which way is up.

Sounds like your Miranda was the female version of Dennis the Menace. Danielle was always very talkative too. When she was little she would talk to other people in the grocery store aisle since I was too busy concentrating of shopping.

The campfire sounded fun except for the no-seeums.

Looking forward to the drive to Disney.

Another great update!


Sorry about the tumbles mind, that must have been a nasty shock. I'm about as clumsy in the water as I am out, so I've experienced sand face and pool headbanging far too often on vacation for my liking.

I think we've all encountered an unwanted talkative friend on vacation before... So awkward! Even as a child I hated the constant questions. Sometimes they'll sneak up on you when you least expect it It's tolerable for a while, but boy can it start to wear on your patience! Glad you slipped under the radar at the campfire!

Wow, there's a whole lot going on in this one!

I'm glad you were finally able to accomplish all the needed errands, even if it did result in approximately an extra 94 miles of driving, or whatever it ended up being.

All in all, it looks like a fun, somewhat leisurely day. Even despite the wipeouts, I think that's awesome that you and James got to try to ride some waves in.

I'm sorry you got a new unwanted friend at the pool. I'm sure you're right, she's probably just a social little girl who is on vacation with her parents and just looking for a friend. That doesn't make it any less annoying though.

Great update!

Sorry about the tumble! There is no way I would have been able to right myself if that happened to me.

Sorry you got stuck with Miranda. Anytime we've been stuck with a child like that, I spend the whole time trying so hard to get away and then I feel so stinking bad about it when the child finally leaves.


I'm glad you went to the campfire. We really enjoyed it, but we also have two younger girls. Ours was a lot more packed, so maybe you didn't have to wait in line as long to get your smores fixin's. We learned a couple new songs that from ours. We still break out into "Baby Shark" all the time.

Been there, done that. This is also known as being "Maytagged".

James and I were just hanging out in the pool when a little girl came up and said, Whatcha doooin just like Isabella on Phineas and Ferb. She was a girl a few years younger than James, named Miranda, who just talked our ears off and basically followed us around. I thought, Miranda, you have the right to remain silent! Eventually, James and I decided to play mini-golf&partly because he felt like he missed out the day before, and partly to get away from our new little friend. Well, wouldnt you know it, our new friend dragged her mom and dad over to play mini-golf and were the group right behind us.
I guess it was either that or spike her soda with Ny-Quil. And then you'd have to worry about lawsuits and everything.

Hey - once again, WAY behind!

The beach day looks like so much fun. Few things are more peaceful than flying a kite at the beach.

I must say, I HATE feet. However, the feet-picture exchange was AWESOME!

The mini golf looks like a lot of fun, although incredibly brief. Hmm, I wonder if my daughter is old enough for mini golf yet. That could be a fun new activity! If it took longer than 5 seconds…..

I have to admit that I enjoyed the towel drama. There is always a LOT of drama here, and I can’t even imagine what it will be like when DD hits the tween and teen years.

Love your BIL’s mouse story!

What an amazing experience to see the sea turtle up close like that. I can’t even imagine! I didn’t realize they were so big either.

Ugh - errands on vacation. YUCK!

Love those tiny fish y’all caught!

We had no problems at all through the storm, our lights flickered a bit, but nothing serious. Thank you for asking and thinking of us! As I'm sure you know, that was not the case for much of NYC and Jersey. It's been a hard hit and it will take a long time to get back to normal. I may be going out to the Rockaways (where all those homes burned to the ground) to help serve on Tuesday.

Great update! Looks like a very relaxing and enjoyable day...aside from the errands. Errands and vacation are just frustrating! Been there!

The campfire looks like fun!! We really need to get to Vero.
