Unplugged!



It doesn't take much to entertain the family.

A leisurely day spent in Ft. Myers...

We first hit the Miromar Outlet Mall, which is southwest Florida's most famous outlet mall...over 140 shopping delights to peruse and explore and discover....

...and we discovered that a new Coach bag and Reebok Zigs made Yours Truly very happy. And don't laugh at those fugly Zigs, as they are easily the most comfortable pair of shoes you'll ever walk in. Although I agree; they really are butt-ugly.



An afternoon spent at Bonita Beach...where Daughter sculpted dolphins in the sand....



Oldest son, looking suspiciously like the dead guy in "Weekend at Bernie's", took a nap on the sandy shores...



Hubby threw a football...



...to youngest son, while Daughter cheered them on...



And all three kids decided to have a contest: Who could stand in the (very cold) water the longest? (For the record, it was a tie. They all three had very numb feet and decided to call it a draw. Smart thinking.)



The evening was spent at a delightful greasy spoon called Mel's Diner, where Hubby topped off his meal with their famous "Mile High Pie."


No T.V. No electronics. No video games.

And we all managed to have a little fun today.

Huh. Go figure. If you had told my kids this morning that this was possible - they would have called you crazy.

Peace.
