Happy Holidays

Woke up to some snow today. First White Christmas we have had in many years!

Got all bundled up and spent just a little time outside. It was really cold here in the 937. I forgot to share that I learned to wrap presents this year

I’m not great at it yet but Ohiophotogrl says I’ll get better at it.

Hope you all had very relaxing and holiday season. We did. Spent some time with family and begged out. Was a great few days off but I myself am ready for life to get back to normal! I mean I have adventures to take!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Three Crafty Ladies

What do you do on an afternoon that is too hot to be outside for very long on Sanibel Island….you go see the ladies at Three Crafty Ladies.As you can see here they have some neat fabric and a great pin you can buy while your there. They have a table in the front of the store where you can make a bracket to take home with you. That is what we did!They have all these beads to choose from to put on your bracelet and then they even have shells to add to it for a small additional cost.Ohiophotogrl let me help and her bracelet came out perfect!

If your looking for something to do on the island this is the place to check out. They also offer a few other crafting things to do so you can take home something that you made! How cool is that!

The ladies at Three Crafty Ladies were so nice and fun! We will be back again the next time we are on Sanibel! You should go and check them out!

Ding DarlingĀ 

One of the many stops in this trip was to Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The J. N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is part of the United States National Wildlife Refuge System, located in southwestern Florida, on Sanibel Island in the Gulf of Mexico. It is named for the cartoonist Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling.


There is a museum when you first get there that has lots of cool things inside. (It’s also air conditioned in there :0) 


You can touch bones and skins of animals to see what they feel like. You can watch videos on different things that you can see in the refuge and most of all they have this really cool area where you can make something to take home.


Here is an example


We even met some fun people along the way. This is my new friend Monica!


What a fun place to take anyone that likes nature. We really enjoyed this place. After the museum you can drive your car, walk or take a team thru the refuge. There is a very small fee to do this and the wild life you see there is amazing! One other cool thing is check the coupon books that you pick up around the island. There was a coupon for a free reusable water bottle. They have filtered water stations through Sanibel Island. So having someplace to put water in was an added bonus! It’s hot in Florida and staying hydrated is mandatory!

We are having so much Fun! Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Wait…where are we going?

So Ohiophotogrl told me to pack a bag and be ready in 10 minutes. So I grabbed my bag and asked her what I should pack. She suggested sunscreen and swim trunks.


I thru my stuff in her bag and we pulled out of the drive way about 5 minites ago.

Wonder where we are going? Stay Tuned

What to do in the rain….

So here in the 937 it has rained pretty much all day. We needed the rain but we don’t get out much when it rains. I got to do one of my favorite things today…


Veg out in Ohiophotogrl’s bed and play on her iPad. There is a Mr Potatohead game! I could play it all day. I can change clothes, move around to different locations and the best part is I don’t have to leave this comfy bed!

What do you like to do on a rainy day?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
