Vacation 2010 Day 1

Wednesday, March 24, 2010


Well about nine months have past since my last blog post. I could blame it all on the increasing busy-ness of our lives, but that's just an excuse for not making time for it! Much has changed over this time. Emma is proving herself to be very intelligent with her vocabulary! Everyday that passes I am in awe of her. She's a very kind-hearted, strong-minded, and loving little girl. A mixture of personality that I hope she always keeps. Yes, she's stubborn..she's a Rogers you know! But then again I guess a few Gailey's have been accused of the same offense a time or two! She's a kisser and a hugger, which I love love love love! She's a fit pitcher...And GREAT at it, strong willed and in charge. Those who know her just love her and those she knows she loves more. I'll do my best to keep up with her funnies, exciting moments, and more. Ta Ta For Now!

Cute stuff!

I've noticed that I haven't blogged about all of the "cute stuff" Emma has been doing and saying lately. Plus in my attempt to remember every single cute thing she does in her wee little life, I had better write (well, type) them down...

Today, while we were cooking pancakes for breakfast, she looked over at me hand in air and said "hee ya" (see ya) and walked away grinning! Who even taught her to say that?

Also, with all of the flies that seem to follow living nearby a human waste dumping facility, we seem to have them everywhere. Some have made their way into my car, which has turned Emma into a maniac. Anytime one comes around her she yells at it "shoo NO"! Not shoo fly don't bother me, it is "shoo No!" I think she hears me say that too much!

She saw Dusty smack me on the rump while passing thru the kitchen this evening and now she gets a kick out of running up to me, hitting me on the behind, and laughing histarically while running away!?!

I've also decided that I'm going to have to purchase a video camera to capture her hilarious dance moves. Her favorite dance music is what I call "thumping music". She'll stand right in front of the radio, pulls one arm up as if she is showing off her muscles, and shakes her booty around in circles. Hilarious!

And lastly, since "Doo and Papa" (Sherry and Mike) built a pool, we've been swimming every evening after daddy gets home from work. She's become quite a swimmer, with floaties of course. She loves to jump off of the side...instead of jumping however, she pulls one leg up throws her arms straight up and falls forward. It looks very difficult to do, but it seems to be the only way she knows how to enter the water. If only she can hold onto her pool stance in the air, she'll make quite a cheerleader!

Amelia Island~Day6

Today is our last full day at Amelia, and tomorrow we'll go home. It's been a great vacation this year. Full of exciting adventures with the family. Who knew we'd see Otters in the lake, mating lizards on a guard rail, an entire zoo full of crazy animals, go trespassing on a boat ramp just to take a family photo, catch tiny fish in the ocean, and many more exciting things.

This will be our last trip to Amelia for a couple years at least. Disney World and other fun adventures have captivated our future interests. We've really enjoyed the last three years here though. We've even added a new family member to each trip making it even more fun. Farewell Vacation, we can't wait for next year.

Amelia Island~Day 5

Due to the fact that the beach pictures all look the same over the past 5 days, I gave myself a break from camera duty to enjoy re-reading "THE SHACK" while soaking up some Vitamin D.

After a full day of sun and naps, we headed off to dinner. On our way, we attempted a family picture on the beach. We may be doing a re-do on this one, but here's what we have so far!

After dinner, Dusty, Emma, Bubbles, Caitlyn and I headed to the beach for a few sun-down photos...

Amelia Island~Day 4 Continued...


It was Monday afternoon when we were all startled by Aunt Bubbles' sudden freak out!
"OOOO OOOO OOOO, Oh, Oh, Look! Is that an Otter?!?" Yes, you had to be there to get the full effect, but to all our amazement, YES! It was an otter (or make that two otters). In the pond outside our beach house, they were fishing and playing in the water.

Here we are waiting on the otters to come out...

And here they are...
