All entries must be received by Monday the 13th of May at 10.59pm BST.

An invitation to be part of Jennifer's blog hop is a fantastic way to start the weekend. When I first saw the theme my thoughts turned to my holiday album and the hot air balloons that were waiting there to be scrapped.
This was our first morning in Florida. We were awake bright and early...suffering from a little time adjustment me thinks. The boys were already in the pool and there was me.....braving the alligator zone (I stepped outside the netted pool area into what looked like Alligator land!) to take some photos.
Not long after I took this photo the television was turned on to warnings of Hurricane Sandy! It was our first day and already there was so much to take in.....and all this before we even reached a theme park!!
Thank you very much Jennifer for allowing me to be apart of your hop - I can only imagine all the hard work and creative time required to put a blogging weekend like this together.......for us all to enjoy. 
Over at Jennifer's there will be posts every daytime hour from now until 10pm Sunday. Have fun.

Now for your next stop along the hop is the lovely Lisa-Jane ...I'll see you there.

  2. I just love that little camera. And I like the way you took the photo from the side. That is when I really noticed the camera, not in the first picture. I also love the colors in the balloon photo. I hope you have a great vacation anyway.
