This is a hodge podge of what's been going on.
Saturday we went to a free fishing day at UF fishing ponds. They provide poles and bait and even a free lunch (part of the motivation to go...being the end of the month and all). We got there at 10 am. It happened to be a blazing HOT day. And we had not prepared as we should have. Most importantly, I had not put sunscreen on Daisy. All I had was an umbrella. So I sort of chased her around as she fished and played keeping her in the shade as much as I could. We were not very successful in catching fish. But we had fun trying. We stayed for the hot dogs and chips. They had a raffle at the lunch...one of those were if you were entered you won something. Daisy won a hat. She was pretty cute running up to the announcer with her ticket, handing it to him and leaving with out her loot. :) At some point they were handing out donuts after lunch and Daisy grabbed a jelly filled donut. After about 4 bites she said, "I sink (think) I had too many bites!" Ha. :)
That night my mom flew into town. She was in town for my shower at church. We had a ton of fun with her in town. Daisy was in heaven since JiJi is her play slave. :) We took some pics before the shower:

The shower was amazing! It was a fish theme (no, there is no tie to a nursery theme just a fun shower theme). There were real goldfish in glass bowls on the food table! The food was soooo good. There was carrot cake with cream cheese icing, bruscetta (sp?) with bread, goldfish snacks, gummy fish, fish shaped and iced sugar cookies, shrimp cocktail, bree cheese with fig preserves, yummy punch with little fish shaped ice and one big ice fish in the bowl, ....and so much more! We had a great turn out and got lots of things we needed and wanted. A few of my favorites were a spa gift card, a Vera Bradley duffel bag, a sit n stand stroller, a handmade diaper bag, and cute boys clothes. There are so many loving people at my church. I felt so special! Here are some pics from the shower:
Some of my sweet friends gave Daisy some gifts too. She loved it!
And then last night we tried to take some family pics and prego pics. My friend Glenda from church came over to do a "photo shoot" since she has skills at photography. :) But it became overcast and the cameras we had kept messing up! We got some good ones though. But I think we will try again in the next month. Here are the pics from my camera of the shoot:
