Sweet rental house

Sandy back yard, perfect for an Easter egg hunt

Our Grands at the Wedding, lovin the hammock

We arrived home from our family road trip to Key West late yesterday just in time for Rambo man to head back to his project. Key West is exactly 908 miles from our home one way, that is a heck of a long way to go in just 5 day's but it's all the time Rambo man could spare this late in the project he is on, we were afraid he wouldn't be able to make it at all so we can't complain!!!

The Wedding was beautiful, our Niece was lovely and her new husband is a doll baby, we look forward to watching them begin their new life together, can't wait to see the beautiful family they will become! I know my sister is need of a long rest after the over the top festivities they planned for everyone, it was a perfect weekend. They started the Wedding off with a tour bus for everyone of the island followed up with dinner at Margaritaville, Saturday the ceremony was held on the beach of the Waldorf Austria followed by the reception in the ball room, on Sunday they hosted an Easter brunch at Mango's on Duvall street. We arrived Friday with an hour to get ready for the rehearsal dinner then headed out after the Easter brunch on Sunday, talk about a whirlwind trip!

I now have 2 day's off before the rest of the family returns from vacation to get the yard back in shape (sorta), thin the onions, carrots, and radishes then get some plants in the regular garden, figure if I work from sun up to sun down I should be able to make some headway and finish up over the weekend.

Weekly spending; Lets not go there! Na, it really wasn't that bad. We were able to get the rental house that was wonderful at 25% off by booking and paying a few month's in advance. We lugged snacks and drinks with us to save a little, enjoyed some sightseeing that cost nothing, rented a dune buggy sorta thing for the family on Saturday that we were able to get at a discount from the front desk at the resort. The butt kicker was of course gas prices, on the island it ran $4.05, total spent on gas for the trip was $480.00, yikes!!!
