Spring Break!

Maddy is home for a week so we are enjoying some family time. We went to see the manatee in Blue Springs Park...

There were 69 still in the spring...

And I managed to get a photo of a pileated woodpecker finally! So handsome...

While she is home we are making plans for the big trip to Canada this Summer when we will drop Maddy off for a 3 month internship rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife. So excited for her:)

The best time of the year!

This weekend we took advantage of the milder weather and did the nature trail at one of our favorite places, the Oakland preserve...

I saw a huge pileated woodpecker!!

We have the cold front for at least a week so we'll be spending as much time walking outside  as possible - Florida is so lovely right now!

Park life:)

It's a great time of year for the Parks (since it's not too busy or hot) so we made the most of it while Leanne was in town at Magic Kingdom!


And at Animal Kingdom for Cormac's birthday too!

Apartment Life

I fully expected we'd be yearning for more space by now but after 6 weeks we still really love our little place! Don't get me wrong - I'm looking forward to transforming Willow Bay into our dream destination home but since we can't do that right now, I'm absolutely fine with having a lot less to worry about:). We watch TV a lot more and so Celebrity Big Brother came at just the right time!

And we can get an Uber in minutes to do whatever we fancy. Like the MoFro concert at the House of Blues which Mike loved!

Or the crazy murder mystery dinner which was more my cup of tea...

We have lakes everywhere and lots of places to walk and get some nature...

And we are even working hard at the gym!

But the happiest member of the Early family right now has to be Juneau. She is so happy that she is with us all of the time and we can't escape upstairs! She is getting lots of extra attention which she totally deserves...

Since we are so settled here we are totally going to take our time on the next move and making sure we have all the messy construction stuff done before we actually live there:)

Adam & the Ants!

I used to totally love Adam and the Ants! He has been coming to Orlando the last couple of years and there's always been a reason I couldn't go. I thought it had happened again but Ali, Jake and Maddy were fine at the apartment with pizza and encouraged us to get out and see the show at The Beacham downtown. Within an hour of deciding to go after all we were there and I was reliving my youth again!

The band did a great job and at 63, Adam Ant looks really good. I was 10 when it all happened so it brought back a lot of fond memories of Brookside discos, too much make up and pirate shirts. Good times:)
