Providence Canyon State Park

We visited Providence Canyon State Park this weekend. It is absolutely beautiful there! The pictures do not even do it justice! We hiked down and around the inside of the different canyons. We had a family picnic and then stayed for astronomy night. The sky was so clear and there were more stars then I’ve seen fill up the night time sky. It was fun looking though some big telescopes too.

Florida Aquarium & The Boardwalk

We went to the Florida Aquarium today and had a good time looking at all of the animals. Then we had a fabulous lunch and went to the boardwalk. We saw dolphins in the bay.Then a seagull swooped down, knocking Nanny in the head, and took a bite of her ice cream cone! We were running around like a bunch of dorks trying to get away from the little, creepy thieves! It was fun!

Winter and Hope

Ever since seeing Dolphin Tail and Dolphin Tail 2, Lydia has wanted to go to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. So for Valentine’s Day this year we did just that. It was really cool seeing them in real life. It was fun seeing all of the other animals they rescue there too. We had a great morning there and then headed to the beach. The kids collected tons of shells and ran up and down the sand dunes. What a perfect day!
