Christmas With Grampy

We had a wonderful Christmas at my dad's house.  Here are a couple pics from Christmas morning.

Katherine Wanted Snow

Kat wanted to see snow and she certainly had her wish granted.  We got up to my dad's house in Massachusetts and there was about 18 inches of snow on the ground.  It was the perfect consistency for building snowmen and making snowballs.  Here are a few pics from us playing in the snow.

The Big Apple!

The drive to New York was a dramatic comparision with our drive to Philly.  Picture perfect in every way.  The only slowdown was 15-20 minutes getting through the Lincoln Tunnel.  It has been wonderful thus far in the city.  We got to meet up with our friends that recently moved away from Florida to New York.  Went ice skating in Bryant Park, had a snowball fight in Central Park, visited the fabric mecca Mood Fabrics, and to top it all off a private tour of Sirius Satellite Radio with the Producer of the Busted Halo Show.  Here are a few pics of the highlights.

What a long day in the car.  What should have been a nice and easy 7 hour drive turned in to a horrible 9 hour fight with traffic.  Everything was going great until 60 miles or so outside of Washington DC.  Then it all went bad.  Bumper to bumper and stop and go for the next 3 hours.  We were so glad to finally make it to our hotel in Philly.  The cold weather finally hit us with a vengeance.  It was in the teens on Saturday night and warmed up to the high 20's on Sunday morning.  Sunday morning was an amazing time.  We got to visit the Liberty Bell and pretty much got a private tour of Independence Hall.  I am getting goosebumps thinking about being in this historic place.

Surprise for Katherine

Santa delivered a letter to Katherine last night.  He knew that she was going to be away from home for Christmas and surprised her with some spending money for her trip to Philly and New York.

First Stop Fayetteville

After 8 hours of driving we decided that it was time to stop.  We put on around 500 miles today and the gang is having a great time, even Pepper is enjoying the adventure.  No pictures to share tonight.  Tomorrow we will be up early and back on the road.  Tomorrow's destination - Philadelphia

Getting Ready For The Road Trip

Tomorrow we embark on a two week adventure.  We will be heading out on a holiday road trip to visit friends and family in the Northeast.  Katherine has been longing for snow so this year we thought we'd go find some for her.  It is going to be an awesome trip.  Some of the places we will be visiting are Philadelphia, New York City, Mass, Maine, and Washington DC.  Today will be spent tying up all the last minute loose ends and making sure everything we need is packed.  I can't wait run the D700 through it's paces over the next couple weeks.  I will try to post pics of the adventure as it unfolds.  Cheers!

Christmas Lights

We went to the Magic Kingdom on Sunday and got a little more into the Christmas spirit.  Here is Cinderella's castle decorated for Christmas.  Pretty spectacular!

Cruising Around the World

Over the last few days we were blessed with a visit from one of Connie's cousins and his family.  They dropped anchor here in Titusville for a few days.  They are a few months into a 5 year adventure of cruising their boat around the world.  They sold everything they own, bought a big boat and started this adventure.  They have an 8 year old little girl and instantly our daughters hit it off like sisters.  We wish them all the best on living their dream and can't wait to see them all again.  Here are some pictures from their visit.

First Reconciliation

On Saturday Katherine achieved another milestone in the Catholic church.  She made her first reconciliation which is one of the Church's sacraments.  It is the step before making her first communion which will happen in May.  Here are a couple pictures from this wonderful day.

Girls Night Out

Kat and Grandma Payan had a wonderful time last Friday night.  They had a girls night out in Cocoa Village.  It started with an elegant dinner at the Black Tulip and then they went to a live production of Peter Pan.  After the show Kat got to meet all of the actors and everyone was impressed with how lovely she looked.

New Website!

If you haven't checked out bobknapik.com in the last day or so you may not have noticed that I launched my new site.  Please check it out and let me know what you think.

Backyard Surprise

We looked out our window yesterday and this is what we saw.  I have heard of a neighbor's dog or cat getting loose but two horses???  There's always a bit of adventure at the Knapik's and this is another example.  Who knows what will show up next?  Hopefully no gators...

Early Voting

I just got back from voting.  I have spent the last few days going over our ballet and studying up on the different amendments and local candidates.  I got inspired seeing the other enthusiastic Americans standing in line to vote early.  It feels good and I think everyone will agree that it is time for a change in this country.  Regardless of who you vote for, please do your civic duty and get out there.  Spend some time getting educated and then go vote.  It is one of the great things about our country and we should never take this priviledge lightly.

Loving my iPhone!

I am coming up on 3 months of owning an iPhone and thought i would give everyone a brief update.  I absolutely love it!  I am a former blackberry user and was very hesitant to go with the iPhone because it meant switching to AT&T from Verizon.  I have been pleasantly surprised that my AT & T service has been acceptable though not quite on par with Verizon in some areas here in Florida.  This little device is a must have item for any parent with school age children.  I use it for so much more than phone and email.  Any time we are travelling in the car, waiting in line, waiting for our food at a restaurant that doesn't have crayons for the little kids I give the iPhone to my daughter and she passes the time happily rather than constantly complaining.  She draws pictures, plays games, listens to her music playlist, etc.  It is also used very often by me to settle debates, look up facts, etc. via wikipedia or other websites.  If typing emails on the touch screen was easier then this could almost replace a notebook computer on business trips.  Bottom line, It's awesome.  It's worth every penny.  Go get one.

Just me and Kat this weekend

So Connie flew up to Massachusetts today to help her mom drive back to Florida.  Her mom has been house sitting for relatives for the last couple months up there and it is time for her to come home.  I think they are going to be back some time on Sunday evening so it's just me and Kat for the next few days.  It should be a blast to have a few daddy/ daughter days in a row however I am sure that i will be exhausted by the time Connie gets back.  Wish me luck!

So after about a 2 year break from visiting Disney World we decided to become annual passholders again.  We went to EPCOT yesterday and had an awesome time.  To our pleasant surprise the annual food and wine festival had just started so we were able to sample some great food from around the world as well as some great beer.  Another cool surprise was that the 80's pop star Sheena Easton was giving free concerts and we were able to hear her sing.  It's pretty cool to hear her 20 something years after she hit it big and her voice sounds exactly like it did back then.

Can't keep up!

OK, first an apology for no updates in awhile.  I am finding it harder and harder to keep up with all of the cyberspace locations.  I am trying to update my blog, website, facebook, [b] school, etc. and am failing miserably.  I am also working on a new website and hopefully it will be up and running within the next couple weeks.  Please keep checking back often.  I am covering the Titusville Chamber of Commerce golf tourney tomorrow.  I will try to post a few of the pics after the event.  Cheers!
