St. Maarten Marine Wildlife

I got to hold a sea urchin! I don't think I was aware that they weren't dangerous. When you snorkel they always advise you to leave them alone so I guess I just assumed they could hurt you. It wasn't very sharp but the needle things (what are they called?) felt like really coarse hay. Sort of like those brushes you keep at the front door for cleaning off the bottom of your shoes. I was surprised the kids wouldn't do it too. Oh well!

The whole thing was bigger than my hand!

St. Maarten

One of my favorite places,St. Maarten. Just visited there last week on a cruise and I'd love to go back and stay a little longer. Maho Beach has an awesome view of the airport, definitely the main thing I was excited to see once we got to St. Maarten

Look Mommy! Two Frogs

Kids are hilarious with some of the funny things they say without even  realizing it. These two frogs are obviously special friends but I had NO idea that they would hop across the street like this! Still lovin’ on each other and everything, just hopping across the street like there was nothing out of the ordinary going on. I know frogs having sex really is no big deal to them but to me, its really funny! I've certainly never seen two frogs humping as they are hopping across the street. Have you?

My daughter saw them first from about a house away and gasped when she realized there were two frogs. Almost as funny as the time she read the name on the dog collar at a pet store, you know, the name for a female dog? Yup, she read that out really loud one day in a snooty pet store and my husband and my stepson (14 at the time) just lost it. I still chuckle when I think about that day and I probably always will. I love that even at 11 she is still naive about stuff like this, its probably the only time she still seems like a child rather than a preteen.
