On August 3rd my bookend boys celebrated their 11th and 5th birthdays. Not sure how they have grown up so FAST?!?!?!!! They are both full of energy and spunk and love everything active!
This year for all the kids birthdays we didn't do much in the gift department, but instead we have done family activities and experiences. It had rained for about 3 weeks straight here, so outdoor activities were out...bummer. We decided to venture into Tampa and visit the Florida Aquarium on Sunday, August 2nd. The aquaruim was great. We had a BLAST!
The anaconda liked the kids!
Florida Spiny Lobster
It rained again, monsoon style rain, the morning of the boys birthday. So bad that it flooded all the bridges to Tampa. Luckily it stopped late morning and after a bit we were able to get out.
This picture was so true...after weeks of rain and flooding, it certainly felt like this!
Carson really wanted to go bowling on his birthday.
I can't say enough about the Kids Bowl Free program; we have gone many times and its great!!
We them stopped at Pinky's for an ice cream treat.
One of the advantages of living in a tourist area is the countless ice cream shops to choose from!
The boys had football and Melina had dance the evening of their birthday, but we all ate a late dinner of Eggplant Chicken Parmesan and Celebrates with Cheesecake and Chantilly Cake.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOYS!
