We Tried a Candy Making Class at Sweet Pete’s

We recently tried a candy making class at Sweet Pete's in downtown Jacksonville and had fun getting messy with chocolate and stuffed with sweets.

No complaints from the 5-year-old about the … Continue reading We Tried a Candy Making Class at Sweet Pete’s

Urban Air is Worth a Trip Over the Ditch

I used to make fun of the whole "cross the ditch" phrase, but I get it now.

Urban Air Adventure Park … Continue reading Urban Air is Worth a Trip Over the Ditch

But some costumes I just … Continue reading Rocking those Leeloo Dallas Orange Suspenders 20 Years Later
