Back to real life

We went on vacation May 4 to Litchfield, SC with the Barker Family. (South Myrtle Beach) Everyone was able to go except Joe's younger sister. We rented a beautiful 2400 sq. ft. condo. It was not beach front, but we had a pool right out our back door. And since the winds were 25-30 mph almost every day, we used the pool more than the beach. The condo was very spacious and no one felt cluttered. It was great! We found it on http://www.vrbo.com/- Vacation Rentals By Owner. Its a nationwide sight and we've used it a couple times now. Both experiences have been great!
Jonas absolutely loves the water. He's a little fish. It was so fun watching him and hearing his excitement. He first reaction to the sand was negative but he warmed up to it a little. He had fun sitting with Aunt Kim in the shallow ocean waters. The longer he was there the more he enjoyed it. He has sunglasses that wrap around his head and velcro. Once he understood that they helped with the sun, he had no problem keeping them on. Once the sun went down he knew to take them off. He was a great traveler and always went with the flow. We couldn't ask for a better baby! Our first night home, he slept 14 hours!! We had to wake him up to make sure he was ok. He normally sleeps 12 but has never pulled a 14 hour night. He must have really missed his crib!
Well we are back to real life again. Joe spent the last couple days sprucing up our yard and making it look beautiful. Everything is so green and the bushes are now trimmed. My day-lillies started opening today. They are some of my favorite flowers. I need to take pictures of the front yard!
Here are some pictures from our trip. I didn't take that many. I'll try to post video clips later.
AHHH! I can not get my slide show to post. Has anyone else been having problems with slide.com?

Hey you,
Glad that you had a nice vacation with your family. I would imagine that it is nice to be home. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.
I haven't tried using the slide.com in awhile so I obviously haven't had trouble. I can't wait to see pics of your little guy enjoying the beach with his cool sunglasses on:). BTW - Happy first Mother's Day to you (with Jonas on the outside) :).

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

When I initially commented I clicked the
"Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!

I seldom leave a response, however I looked at through a few comments on "Back to real life".
I actually do have some questions for you if
you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it seem like some of
the responses look like they are coming from brain dead people?

:-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to
follow everything new you have to post. Would you make
a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your linkedin
profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet
browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?

Many thanks, I appreciate it!
