We won't be living here anymore! ha!

This morning, while I was still half asleep and bed,  Lex showed up in my room wearing khaki shorts and a little dressy shirt...this is how our conversation went.

Mommy:  Lex, you're wearing that today? Are you going to be comfortable? Don't you have that thing, you know that thing after school?

Lex: Maaaa, my outfit is fine.  What thing?

Mom:  You know, the thing? you have the thing....running, you know.

Lex: MAAAA, girls on the run???

Mom: YES! That!

Lex: MAAAAAA It's Thursday. Girls on the Run is Wednesday!!! Ma, you better not make that kinda mistake at work (and then she makes the slashing your throat motion) or WE WON"T BE LIVING HERE ANYMORE!!!

Put your money on the counter

One night while waiting at the bar for dinner, I wanted lex to go ask the hostess if we could have a specific table.  Knowing that she wouldn't go on her own, I knew I would need to offer a bribe.

J: Lex, I'll let you get a Sprite at dinner if you go ask the nice hostess if we can have that table.
A: Nope.
J:  I'll give you $2 dollars....
A: Put your money on the counter (said like a card shark!)

I put my $2 dollars on the counter. Lex looked at the money, smiled and went over to the hostess and requested the table I wanted, came back to us, and put the money in her wallet.

Alligators, Snakes, and Turtles Oh my!

This was a week of reptiles for the GRS family. Lex and watched this alligator (a five foot BABY) swimming in the lake. We left for 10 minutes to go to the park to play and he came out in the grass to sun himself (look in the background--I wish I had my zoom lens!)

Then, the next day after lunch, the three of us were walking on the  boardwalk bridge over the dunes when Michael jumped 10 feet in the air and a three foot black snake slithered across the boardwalk into the dunes.  I screamed so loudly and grabbed lex  IN FRONT OF ME, paralyzed with fear.  My snake phobia hasn't subsided at all! Poor Lexo had a bruise on her upper arm from me!

Finally, after our pictures on the beach, lex and I hung back to take a few of our own and again walking on the boardwalk, I spotted a teeny, tiny turtle.  He was SOOO Cute!!!
