So, What Did you do in Florida??

I’m so glad you asked.

We had an overnight in Seattle and had a delicious Italian dinner with my lovely daughter and her family.


The next day we flew to Miami and drove to Orlando the following day. We stayed at the Blue Heron. It was beautiful.

Then we drove back to Miami and visited South Beach.


..went to a “LIVE” NBA Basketball Game! The Miami Heat played the Cleveland Cavaliers… it was AWESOME .


Then we drove to the Keyes. I loved the Keyes the best.


And stayed in a lovely hotel called the Chelsea House.


…visited the Southernmost point in the United States.


And returned home, tired and happy.

First Bear of 2010, Meet Bruin



Boy do I feel behind the 8-ball here.

I drafted this post about a month ago, then we went on vacation, then my husband had surgery, now I’m trying to catch up….

Well, I’ve got to start somewhere. So here is where it all begins on catch up week here at the teddy bear house.

I’m still practicing with my new “clay noses” and such, having fun and inspiring myself with stories of real bears. Here’s a picture of Bruin and Cinnamon… they have become great friends.

Love and hugs to all from Vicki and the bears
