Pinks, Favorites and KeyWest


Happy New Year!!!! I hope this year brings peace, prosperity and blessings to everyone!
I missed to show any sightseeing photos last week cause I was on the road. But I did not want to miss it today so I am showing some pictures I took while on a trip to Key West in Florida last month with my family.
I am linking with Beverly's Pink Saturday at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/


and Laurie's A Few of My Favorite Things at http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/

Go visit them and their participants to see more.



You must be tired of seeing Christmas stuff by now but I was looking for something pink to show you and I came across this snowman soda fountain so I thought I would show it to you before putting it away.


And more favorites with pink are a Madonna plate by Raphael and 2 Meissen figures which are all sitting on our foyer console.




Now, it's time to go to Key West. I won't say much so you can just zip through the photos.



Lots of old houses and I love that pretty tree.






There were trolleys everywhere.









The oldest house in Key West. Posing in front of it is my daughter Rochelle.


Dirty jokes for $1? As you can see, we did not stop, especially because we had a lot of kids with us.

I fell right in front of this building. I tripped on one of the pavers and fell all the way down to my face. Luckily, I got up unharmed.








Nathan is pointing to the Filipino flag. We were so surprised to see our flag there that I had to take our picture in front of it.
My son (his uncle) just taught Nathan how to point and he just kept pointing at everything during the whole cruise. It was so cute!





It was fun shopping around.

LOL! We went to the toy store and Brendan and I pretended to be scared of the shark.



Museum of Arts and Industry



My daughter Tina, does professional photography. She does mostly weddings and family portraits. You can tell from these poses which one is the real photographer.

Thank you all for stopping by. The very best to you all for 2011. Thanks, Laurie and Beverly for hosting!

Oh and girlfriend you're gonna want to dress warm here in Seattle... And you'll probably be wishing you were in Key West! Lol!It's currently 19 degrees. I'm freezing my bum off but wanted to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Love Vanna

That is so cute Christine.What fun you guys had. Glad you did not hurt yourself when falling. I wonder if the guy telling dirty jokes was funny? Happy New Year.

Christine, happy new year. I still don't get your comments in my email. Strangest thing. Anyway, I have been to the keys a couple of times. It is great that you can vacation with your family. I hope some day we can take the grands on vacation when this economy gets better. Great photos.
