Cupcakes and C-c-c-c-c-cold Water

We've had a busy and fun couple of days.

On Thursday we met up with our PlayGroup Pals at a very cool place. It's called Cupcakes, Ya'll and it's a bakery that specializes in cupcakes. The perfect sugary place for a bunch of 1-4 year olds (and their moms of course).

The owner was nice enough to pull out some toys for the kiddos to play with and had coloring sheets for them too. We had plenty of time for them to play and then we had lunch. It was delicious. Then each of the kids got to decorate a cupcake. What a sprinkly mess! But they loved it. They also have other sweet treats like cookies and bars. I had a S'Mores bar and it was SOOOO good.

After playgroup, Ellie and I took Madison to the pool for a while and they enjoyed that too. We didn't stay long though because we had company coming! Forrest, Ashby and PeePaw came to visit for 2 nights.

Yesterday we went down to Vortex Spring again and it was even more fun since we had them with us. Some other friends from TN that used to go to Vortex with them years ago were also in FL this weekend so they drove up and met us there. It was a blast. Brandon, Forrest and Ashby jumped off the diving board, tower and the big swing.
The best part was watching them on the zipline. It wasn't working last weekend, but we were excited to see it was fixed yesterday. I used my current "condition" as an excuse not to jump, but I probably would've been too chicken anyway. They even took the opportunity to practice their SCUBA skills after a long break. Also, since it was Friday, there weren't many people there so we got a great shady spot with a picnic table.

They had to leave early this morning to get back to TN since they have lots of folks to visit before heading off across the ocean in a couple of weeks. I'm not sure what we'll do with the rest of our weekend, but for now I'm going to be lazy and lay on the pull out sofa bed that's still open from our guests!
