Day 4

I forgot to mention that on Monday night the whole bunch of us went out to dinner. While we were waiting for a table Florence Henderson walked right in front of me and said "excuse me" (you know the mom from the Brady Bunch?). It was CRAZY-COol. She was totally down to earth in her sweatshirt and jeans. She was out to eat with her grandchildren. I wish I was brave enough to ask her for her autograph.
Any way... on to DAY 4.
Tuesday morning we woke up to this.

Tropical Storm Faye decided to grace us with her presence early Tuesday morning. The employees at the resort tossed the lawn chairs into the pool, closed the pool deck, and locked the gates to the beach. In fact, just as I snapped the last of these images I was forced to leave the pool deck. I was thinking "come on people... this stupid storm has caused my 'beach' vacation to screech to a halt and I am not going to be in the middle of a tropical storm and NOT take her picture. Let a girl live a little.

After my dance with Faye, the fam decided to head to the indoor putt-putt course. Thank goodness for rainy-day activities right?

That night we celebrated my Mom's birthday. We practically risked our lives driving around town to find her a Coconut Cream pie while Dad kept her occupied back at the condo. I still haven't given her her gift, with good reason mind you (of course I can't discuss that here). It is coming soon Mom!

Although the wind was howling we stayed up way too late playing cards and watching the Olympics. Ahhh vacation. When will you visit me again?

Who takes the fab pictures of you? Is Jimmy the actual brains behind the operation, or do you get the fstop just right and hand him the camera?

Hey now, it takes a lot of work to push the button. So what if she set the whole thing up.
