Goin' to Miami!

Watching the Volvo Ocean Race is awe-inspiring and as we've followed it the words "I would love to see them" were often uttered.  Well, we're going to do it!  Dang you, Travelzoo Top 20!  Thanks to our sister we'll be able to make it for the in-port race and the leg start.  So excited!!!!

Beach day

With high temps in the 80's today we had to hit the beach for the first time this year. After the kiddos went to bed we relaxed and read in the cockpit. I love spring!

Crafty time

Well, this weekend I finally took the dive and started the cushion project. I started with recovering the backs (we're keeping the foam on those). After a lot of hours, seam-ripping, bad words, a few tears, and even a bit of blood, the backs are done. They certainly aren't perfect, but they look much nicer than the dingy blue ones. Not sure when I'll get the motivation to start the bench seats (with their brand new, thicker foam!), but for now I'm content to sit here with my mojito.
