Key West - Hand made street fair

What a great bed for a kid
Hi it’s Finn. Today was awesome. We had an omelets and sausages. It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Good. We also took Hoolie to the dog park. I found a long arm like thing that allows you to throw the ball faster and stronger. We went to the craft festival. There where some cool crafts. That’s all we did BYE!!!        

Along the way, a chicken with chicks
As part of his home schooling he's supposed to write more than one of two lines in his daily blog. Well today he figured out that if he held down the "O" key, it would repeat and fill up several lines. I called foul and made him delete about 50 "0's". He still had too many but then he's a kid. 

Sample of the craft fair - a cushion for your boat
Today was the craft fair which had over 50 booths and some were pretty good, especially the one with the hand painted cushions. It made for a nice walk and the temperatures were cool, in the low 70's. We explored the dog park nearby, a very large, fenced in area which was perfect for Hoolie since all he wants to do is just run after balls. He doesn't care for other dogs, just throw the ball. 

On the way back we picked up fresh scallops. It was the first time Finn had scallops and he liked them. We had 1.25 lbs and they were delicious. At night we've been going through our movie collection. So far we've seen Overboard, then Hot Pursuit, Deadman's Chest, and tonight we're due to see Big Trouble in Little China - all excellent movies to watch with grandkids that are still interesting for grandparents. We still have our all time favorite left, Captain Ron to watch. Ann came into Hinckley one time and performed the "Captain Ron" maneuver to get to the dock. The dockhands recognized the maneuver and called out "Captain Ron!" If you've seen the movie, you know what I mean.
