Pass A Grille Beach

We took a little beach day with some friends to Pass A Grille Beach in St. Petersburg Florida. We had been trying to do a beach day for 3 weeks but it kept getting rained out! I was so happy we finally got to make it happen. The boys had a blast at the beach and the weather was gorgeous. wavesfamilyfamily2jakeliamliam2liam4beachgroup3

It was a wonderful beautiful beach and even had cute little shops and restaurants across the street from the beach. We liked it so much that I made everyone come back to do some family beach pics. More to come on those pictures later. (They turned out sooo good!) I used the GoPro in the ocean taking these pictures. I have really been having fun playing around with the GoPro.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last little bit of summer… I know I cannot wait for some fall fun this year! Until next week XOXO.

Spring Break 2016

This past week I had a wonderful time with my parents and sisters. They all drove down to visit us in Tampa. We had great weather all week. Hillsborough River State Park is one of our favorite places nearby to go. We had a great time one day there exploring, but I learned a valuable lesson that day, Jake man is not old enough to go somewhere without a stroller! I ended up carrying him for quite a long distance since he did not want anyone else to carry him. I will need to start doing some double stroller research in the next few months! At least I know we will need one now. Any advice is welcome!

We took my dad to the Ford’s Garage restaurant for lunch one day. It was delicious and cute! He is a huge Ford man, so I knew he would love it… and he did! This photo of my mom and dad is just too adorable not to share!


I took everyone for a beach day at Fort De Soto Beach. I love it. There is so much to explore and the beaches are so nice. I can’t believe how much Jake loves the water now. He would just run right into the ocean and loved the waves. We had crazy sea fog in the morning which was a great opportunity to explore the fort itself. Then the fog cleared and we had a gorgeous day.

Spring Break 2015

My mom, dad and little sister drove down from Indiana this week to escape the cold and enjoy some of Florida’s warm weather and sunshine. Jake had a wonderful time hanging out with Grandma and Grandpappy and Auntie Laura. He and Laura got to swim in the Ocean for the first time in their lives!! Super exciting.

^My little sister at the beach. Isn’t she so pretty!^




^Jake had a big day!^

Just a few of my favorite beach pictures from Clearwater Beach Florida this week. I had quite a few more subjects to practice with. We did paint some Easter eggs as a fun craft project but they did NOT turn out as cool as the package looked. Golden Easter Egg fail!

Until next week, XOXO.
