Ok, this is my second time writing the blog and I have a feeling you guys may have to adjust to a totally different writing style hope you all like it. Since the last blog we have been all over the country. We had just gotten back from Vegas and then I am sure Amber had been somewhere before we headed for Co on the 18th of Dec. We stayed there a week and were supposed to be home on the 25th. So, we drove to a town called Grand Junction the night before our 6:30am flight to come home on Christmas day and as we were settling in for the evening Amber checks our flight status and finds out all flight out of Grand Junction, Denver and Vail had all been cancelled for the 25th. What there was to eat and open on Christmas Eve in Grand Junction was an Applebee’s so that’s what we had for dinner. The 25th we spent in the room of the Country Wine Inn, it was fine just not where I or Amber wanted to be on Christmas Day. The flight home on the 26th was uneventful and we were so glad to sleep in our own bed after 8 days away. Next was Orlando, Amber had some business with Imagine Vacation Homes and our annual passes to Disney had 8 days to the expiration date so we loaded the kids in Caesar and headed south. While there Amber worked and the kids and I headed to Animal Kingdom to let James ride Mt. Everest. I thought I was ok with it and Annie was willing but hesitant. First went through the tree of life with flick and then headed to the Everest Coaster. We got on and while the coaster was moving forward I was fine then it climbed a steep hill and stopped. Then came the backward part and it was all over for me. We got off the ride and Annie shouted let’s do it again as I was trying not to vomit. I guess she got over her fear of Space Mountain from a short year prior. I didn’t share that the weekend was really overcast and rainy so after I almost lost my stomach we went back to the rental home that imagine vacation provided for us. The night before we left to come home Ambers clients and our family went to Arabian Nights a great dinner show that is perfect for families with kids. We had a great time with our family friends Mike and Adam and we even brought some friends from Destin with us, it really was a great long weekend. Ok we finished the Orlando trip got home Sunday evening and then we were home for 4 days and off to Dollywood yep you heard right, Amber has a client in Dollywood. This time it was just her and I. Uncle Rory and Aunt Lisa help us all the time, they are great and they helped out with the gremlins for a couple days before they were off to AL. with their Dad. In Dollywood Amber worked for 3 days straight and we had a day with David, Amber’s brother and Aleda his wife on Sat. Then back in the plane we go come home Amber has a day to breath and then off to CO. she should be home Friday the 23rd at 3:30pm but there is really bad weather in Vail the airport she has to leave from so hopefully things will be ok for her. Vail is about an hour from Basalt where she is working so everybody cross your fingers.
I have been trying to keep our home clean. 1284 sq ft is just way too small for our family at this point. The office at Destin Commons is finally finished and I am planning on having it somewhat decorated before Amber gets home and I haven’t started. I am so excited for Amber the business is really going well, things are hectic but everything will be fine.
On the photography front my phone has been ringing way sooner this year than last. I already have about a week of photography booked for July. The Destin Photographer is going to be busy this year. As always I brought my camera with me on all the above mentioned trips so there will be a couple attached to the blog entry. I have been doing more condo photography and HD videos as well so I may need some help this year.
