Incentive trip

First Ever Ruthless Stamping Retreat!

What a great time we had last weekend at our "Craft Your Christmas" retreat!  

Every one came to have fun and get lots of crafting done for Christmas, and they did! 



We were thrilled with our hotel.. they treated us like royalty! 




We had plenty of snacks to keep us nourished!


Sharlie and Suzanna are ready to get started!


Linda and Rebecca are pleased to be here! YAY!


Jennie is glad to be able to get away and stamp!


Gerene loves to stamp! Michele came all the way from Baltimore, Maryland to stamp wtih us! We're so glad she did!

Come back tomorrow to see more of our wonderful retreat! 


After our fabulous Stampin' Up! Walt Disney World vacation, we still have more vacation time left!  Our daughter, Rachel, and her husband, Andrew, live here in Orlando, and Andrew even works for WDW! They came to the resort to pick us up and bring us to their home.  

Since they just got married last September, it is a joy to be with them and see them married and in their home.  They have been gracious hosts.  Andrew is a great cook!  

Rachel arranged for us to take a fun swamp tour on an airboat!  It was so great!



Our Cap'n Rick...


The houses along the St John river are all on stilts.



Lots of plant life on the river...

We were looking for gators!  Cap'n Rick took us to a cove where he knew that a mama alligator had recently had babies.... and there they were!



These babies are about six weeks old.  We saw about 6-8 of them.  The mama was close by, but we weren't able to get a picture of her. 

It was a great adventure, and a great day!
