Winter Vacations in Florida!

So monkey's god mother Na-Na came down to see us for a whole 10 days. It is never long enough for me I am so very selfish with my time with her. We didn't lack for activities though we went to the usual Florida tourist traps: Disney, Sea World, and Busch Gardens. We also spent some time doing the usual soccer practice and games and Tae Kwon Do. The last two days were the best though we spent our free time at the beach building sand castles. I though I would share a picture of one with you all!

Monkey loves any chance he has to spend with his Na-Na and we can't wait until she is back for his birthday in February.

4 year old voters

So I voted today, and I thought it would be good for Monkey to witness the civic responsibility. When I got to the voting place they had a children's voting ballot too. I was so excited. So after I voted and he stood not so patiently to watch me fill in the bubbles it was now his turn. Little children were only asked to vote for the president. Monkey took his little pencil and bubbled in on the sheet, next to his chosen candidates picture, behind the cardboard privacy barrier. Then he placed his little ballot in the slot with the other children's ballots.

His father asked him who he voted for and he said John McCain.

Daddy asked him why.

Monkey said "Because he kinda looks like a Grandpa." - And there is the logic of the four year old voter.
