Flip-Flopped on the Beach!!!

Summertime! We all got flip-flopped at the beach today, the waves were big and strong. The wranglers both took a flip off their boogie boards, and Mommies In Orbit, well you don’t wanna know, OK, she landed right on her tush in a big old wave, it was not a pretty sight to behold. I think the humidity was about 114%, and we were wondering where the…

The Amazing “Blue Angels!!”

While Mommies In Orbit is on vacation, she is getting to see some pretty cool stuff. Not only the Gulf of Mexico, beautiful white beaches, but also Pensacola, home of the Blue Angels.

Table For Two, Poolside!!

Mother Nature had quite a show of power right in our backyard.  When we emerged from the basement, it looked like the remnants of a wild graduation party.  Hanging by a plastic fence…

Coming To A Beachtown Near You…..

Mommies In Orbit is currently trying to prepare herself for a hair-raising experience that will knock a couple of years off her life and push her right over the edge.  Yes, it’s called a family vacation.  Oh no, not like you’ve seen in the movies, I mean a real live barbarian-battling vacation with two wild animal-children who…
