Some beach and pool pics
On our way back we stopped at NAS Pensacola.
Naval Aviation Museum
Lighthouse - we got there too late for a tour but it's supposed to be haunted so I am looking forward to a tour next time.
Fort Barrancas - Kyle thought it was boring but I thought it was one of the most interesting forts we have been to.
We had a really great time. :)

I also did cake pops again but found that chocolate cake and buttercream icing didn't work as well as the red velvet and cream cheese. It required more freezer time.

It means so much to me when I am able to participate in school activities so I can see him interact with his classmates and get to know his teachers, classmates and the classmates parents. I have never wished more to be a SAHM so I could take every opportunity to volunteer at his school. Being a parent to a school age child is really a completely new journey filled with so much joy, amazement and opportunities for personal growth.
The end of the year celebration for Kyle's class was wonderful. The class sang several songs (videos of two below), the Principal handed out completion certificates and then there was a breakfast. I cried through most of it! I can't believe how much he has changed this last year and that soon he will be in Kindergarten.

(I used a bread machine but ingredients could be mixed in a bowl and left to rise in a warm place for one hour.)
Add dry ingredients to bread machine sifting to combine. Add wet ingredients. Set bread machine to dough setting. My machine is set for an hour and a half but I removed after an hour. It will be more like a batter so it's not necessary to roll out and cut dough. Preheat oven to 350 degress. Grease a muffin pan and use a spoon to drop 3 tsp. (about 3/4 full) for each roll. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Use a tablespoon to loosen sides and slide under roll - they should pop right out.
Yields 12 rolls.

Growing up I noticed disparaging graffiti at school or park bathroom or on the back of bus seats. As an adult I generally only tend to see it in barroom bathrooms and typically those of the less fancy establishments. My favorites are the warnings such as, “guess what I did to the toilet paper” or “I am watching you. There is a hole in the wall.” Those always crack me up when I am tipsy.
"What if you could mix the feel good vibes and positive outlook of Reggae with the awe-inspiring power and shomanship of American Rock? Then throw in a healthy dash of Southern Rap with some Latin Percussion to spice it up. Add a touch of Punk Rock and a taste of Ska, and WAH-LA! You have the perfect ingredients for one of the “DOPEST” party bands of this generation...you have Taco & Da Mofos."
Um, okay. I'm not sure what I love the most - the creative spelling of "voila" which seems to be an infectious trend, the bizarre blend of genres or how devastating handsome these fellas are.
