That sounds like a lot of fun but I'm not sure if we'll be able to make it. A's dad might be taking him trick or treating. If not, we'll definately join!

Hi all,

We may see you guys downtown PG tomorrow. We'll try to be there about 6 PM.

Ava's costume is probably going to remain on her bod for about 10 minutes... if we're lucky... we have been acclimating her but it's just big & bulky. At least we'll be an entertaining sight!

Kierstin, it won't let me PM you or send an e-mail but I wanted to thank you for the banana bread. It was great! DH even loved it and he's picky when it comes to foods. You've inspired me to make my own purees to sneak into our baked goods. Shhh, don't tell DH!

Oh yeah! I forgot about the free ice cream!

We will be there about 6pm and will try our best to park in the Gilchrist parking lot. The Days Inn lot is also available for parking (as least it was last year)

Take 41 and go over the Peace River bridge and take your first right by the hotel. I think the street is W. Retta Esplanade or something like that. Gilchrist park is right behind the hotel. I'll call you guys when we get there.

Hi all!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe ahlloween! we went to siesta key. It was neat, only it seemed that that area had been overrun by preteens dressed as hhmm, maybe britney spears or some other tramp?? Next year I will join you all in PG.

Are we meeting tomorrow? I love subway for lunch, and waldemere park is a nice place to meet.

I'll check back later tonight. It seems I have been in a slump since we got back from vacation... I need to get out!!

I know I can't believe the way the kids dress! DH thinks we're locking dd up until she's 25 . I would never let her leave the house like that.

We're still on for tomorrow . We'll probably stay at the park until 1:30 to miss the lunch rush, so when's a good time to meet? 12-12:30?

Take Exit- 193 Jacaranda Blvd. Stay on Jacaranda for about 4 miles, then take a right on Woodmere Park Blvd. Then you should see signs it's back there somewhere. I've only been there once but I think it's easy to find. You can also Mapquest it if you want the map

See you all tomorrow!

ds (6), dd (2.5) and arriving this spring!

I could NOT believe some of the costumes we saw last night. I thought I was pretty open minded, but OMFG. It was crazy...:

We'll be there too... we have been there many many times. Not recently though. We go to the libraray across the street a lot too, after school. It's not far from C's school, so I can just swing by and pick him up afterwards.

I'll be there around 12-ish.

Oops, for some reason I am not getting notification of new posts to this thread, sorry I missed the meet-up. We went to the new garden of 5 senses in NP today, I don't reccomend it. Aiden was calling it the "bug garden" there were huge bugs EVERYWHERE! One went into my hair then two got into the car.

Let's plan on something for next week!

It is right on Pan American in NP, It is shortly after the health department on the opposite side of the road. It is beautiful, there are so many flowers and plants and even a small waterfall. There are just gigantic bugs all over the place.

Did everyone hear about Mighty Mama? How sad I plan on sending some milk to her for her 8 wk old baby. If anyone wants to add some to the shipment please PM me or e-mail me. I'm not sure we're allowed to discuss it here.

There is a thread in Talk Amoungst Ourselves on MDC about her. She lost her sister (another MDC mama) a few mos back, and now she has Cancer again. It has spread from her breast to her stomach, her brain, and a few other places. She just had a baby 8 weeks ago and she has another child as well. She is hospitalized and in severe pain right now because of the tumor pressing on her spine. She is receiving agressive radiation. It is a very sad story. There is a link in my sig to a helping site with part of the story.

D- her sister was Amy aka Kundalini Mama. She left behind 2 little ones I pray this tragedy does not repeat itself.

Anyone up for a meetup this week? I can do tomorrow AM or maybe Friday.
D and I were talking about maybe doing a paint party, or a messy party one day soon.

Poor thing! It didn't go down since this morning when I talked to you? I hope she feels better soon. I wonder if that's why she was fussy on Monday? It was the only time I have ever seen her fussy!
