Did you see the Super Moon???

The "Super Moon" rose in the east at sunset last evening. This unusually large full moon -- known as a super "perigee moon" -- was the biggest in almost 20 years.

picture taken with my Canon Power Shot at sunset

"The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993,"

The 'Super Moon' is a situation when the moon is slightly closer to Earth in its orbit than on average. This effect is most noticeable when it occurs at the same time as a full moon

It's so close because the moon's orbit around the Earth is not a perfect circle, but an ellipse, according to Weather Channel

When the Moon's orbit takes it the farthest away from Earth, the moon is at its "apogee,". When it makes its closest approach, the moon is at its "perigee."

So not only was it be a full moon Saturday night, but it was also at its perigee. This month's perigee put the moon about 8% closer to Earth than usual, and about 2% closer to Earth than the average lunar perigee.

~~~ Beautiful week ~~~

What beautiful weather we have been having in the Sunshine State…




We spent a one day over at Orlando’s Universal. We had a fun filled day there and enjoyed many rides in the park. They are celebrating Mardi gras for the next month or so and had an incredible nighttime parade. It was a spectacular parade and the boys came away with ton of beads…








Sit back and enjoy a video that I found of the parade we saw

there were HUGE floats, Stilt walkers and tons of beads





After we left the park we went to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Cafe for dinner. We sat outside on the Porch of Indecision and WOW what fun we had. The disc jockey there was amazing and he really entertained us & the kids. I had the best fried chicken & nut salad (sugared pecans) YUM. A fun place to go!!!





I went up to my daughters this week to watch my twin grandsons. I picked them up from daycare and watch them until she got home… she is a nurse and works 12 hour shifts when she goes in. We had a great time together… first I stopped at McDonalds and got them a Happy Meals & then they played in the play area for about an hour. After we left there we went out to Dunedin Causeway and I watched the sunset with my two darling boys. They ran, chased birds, picked up sticks & shells and enjoyed watching the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. That really tired them out so when we got home they took a shower and then came out to watch American Idol with me.












So as you can see it was a great week! I hope you had a fun week too!
