7 hours away from Columbia is my dad's retirement home in Florida. Chances are that if you have watched many golf tournaments, you have seen where he is moving...when he retires in a couple of years.

The Villages is a golf community complete with cart paths all over the city, live entertainment 365 days a year rain or shine, golf courses, pools, rec centers, town squares, etc. The amenities go on and I can not name them all,so I will stop here.

We arrived Thursday night with 3 weary children, 5 bags, 2 bikes, and 1 potty and officially began our weekend on Friday morning.

We had a great time riding gold carts, going swimming, playing at the park, riding bikes, checking out the gators, dancing at the town square, eating ice cream and other various treats, and most importantly spending time with my Dad and Gail.

We had a not as great time breaking up fights, pulling the boys out of the water fountains/flower beds/off stage, keeping them from climbing every structure that they could get their feet on, and listening to some whining.

That is all par for the course though (no pun intended).

One VERY special thing happened while we were on vacation: P bear started walking. He is officially a toddler now. We were all so proud of him!! Yeah Wyatt!
