And another........

swap card for Convention. Used Life delights paper pack. Cuttlebug for the embossing on the chocolate cardstock. Thoughts of You stamp set for the flower and For Every Occasion for the sentiment. The center of the flower is pop-dotted.

John was home at 11:30 AM yesterday! What a difference a week makes. Last week there was a couple of days when he didn't get home til 7 PM or later. Super Bowl's over for sure! He came in the door and announced he was hungry for a BLT on sourdough bread from Cracker Barrel. So we went to Cracker Barrel for lunch! They have a new mall open close to Cracker Barrel, so we checked it out. Only a few stores were open. Most won't open til March. And they are adding a 30 screen movie theatre next door to the new mall. That area of the county is really booming with new housing and shopping centers.

We are taking John's folks for a steam train ride on Sunday down near Sarasota. They know we are going on an "adventure" but they don't know where or what we are doing. Mom had this brilliant idea that we all fly to Alaska this summer as a family and ride the train to Denali. Dad's health is not good enough for him to travel that far, so when I found out about this, I figured it would be a nice treat for them. We go, ride the train, stop somewhere on the way back home for a late lunch/early dinner and everybody sleeps in their own bed that night! Dad is such a little boy when it comes to trains.He was in his glory when we went to Japan 5 summers ago and we rode every train they had. From the Shinkasen bullet train to a little old circa 1950's steam train to the top of Mt Aso. For you FL folks, here's a link to the train rides. Welcome to the Florida Railroad Museum

I think that plan sounds really neat. I love doing day adventures! And, I am jealous of all those Cracker Barrels you have... none here. Oh, and that deli... I forget what it is called but YUMMY!
