We Love Art Camp

I signed the girls up for Art Camp at the Winthrop Arts Studio on Bloomingdale. The camp was called, All About Fabric, and for an entire week the girls created wonderful fabric masterpieces!  They loved it so much, we're going to have to sign them up for additional sewing classes!

Atlas Goes to the Vet

Atlas hurt is left paw. He must have severed one of his claws or bent it backwards so when he hits it on the concrete he whimpers. Swimming appears to be the best therapy for him. The vet says that without tranquilizing him, there was no way for them to cut it off or trim it. So, we are waiting to see what happens. I think the injury is more painful to me and the girls than it is for Atlas! He's a tough boy!

Fun at the Tampa Zoo

On Sunday, we went to the zoo. It was a gorgeous day! We just needed to get out of the house and enjoy nature and the animals. We saw stingrays, orangatans, monkeys, giraffes, zebras, elephants, huge alligators, all kinds of birds, galapagos tortoises, rhinos, penguins and more!

We were surprised that our zoo at Lowry Park now has a water ride where everyone gets wet. On a hot day, it is a fantastic treat. We people watched as we had lunch, and then played in the splash pad, rode on the carousel and sifted for gemstones!  We all had a great time & can't wait to go back.

Sierra Makes Breakfast!

Sierra is learning her way around the kitchen. Recently, she showed interest in making breakfast so we taught her the basics.

Our neighbor, Evelyn, also showed her a secret ingredient, milk, to make scrambled eggs taste better& fluffier!

Sierra has been practicing cooking breakfast this past week to improve her skills!

Happy Father’s Day

The girls made this wonderful video showing how amazing they think their Daddy is.

Good Friends Visit!

We had so much fun having Anthony, Tiffany and their family (Kaliya, Maia, and Devin) visit for a few days! We had great conversation, swam in the pool, played in the yard and took them to the beach.

In the evenings, we ate good food, laughed a lot, the kids watched a couple movies and the boys broke out the good stuff!
