Jacksonville's Home and Garden Show, Avondale and our very silly children....
Yesterday morning, Chad and I decided to be crazy...er...I mean, spontaneous (that sounds better, right?!) and take the kids with us to the Jacksonville Home and Garden Show. It is held in the heart of downtown Jax at the Prime Osborne Convention Center twice yearly. The weather was beautiful and the kids were on their best behavior. :) While we attended booth after booth after booth, the kids loaded up on an entire years worth of candy (who needs Halloween?!) and we wound up having a great time! We got some helpful info on several things related to our new house (such as pavers, bathroom renivation, and exterior paint). Afterwards, we decided to walk to the Landing's...what we thought would be a mere stroll wound up being a 10 block walk...which with two hungry and tired children was not that much fun. BUT - when we finally got there, we were greeted by live music in front of the river and a nice table waiting for us near the water fountain. The kids had a blast singing and dancing (see video) while we watched the Hogs play the Gator's on a mega screen....poor poor Hogs!!!

Chad and I had a really nice date last night (thanks Dennis and Linda for keeping the kids!)...we went to Avondale to eat at the Brick Restaraunt...it was soooooo nice to be alone together! This morning we went to church with Chad's parents and were excited to run in to Shannon and Greg King...Shannon is a blogger friend who we've never actually met in person - her and her husband are just awesome and it was so fun to chat - Shannon...hope to see you again soon! :)
