Farm and mermaids with Mi Mi

We enjoyed a visit from my Mom the week of Easter.  
 We took a trip to a friend's house by the lake and visited their "mini farm".

 We also went to see the Weeki Wachee mermaids perform The Little Mermaid.
Hatley-Grace loved seeing the mermaids dance and sing underwater. 
 It was a really neat show, and the mermaids have been performing there since the 50s.  
 Ariel and Prince Eric dancing on dry land.
 The park also had an animal show, water slides and pool, and a playground.  We will make another visit again soon, it was such a fun morning out!

Bonita Springs

Last week, we traveled 3 1/2 hours south to spend time with family.
 HG took to her second cousins so well, and loved playing with them right away.
 The beach was full of shells.
 Sunsets were enjoyed after dinner every night.
 Pool time is more fun with friends!
 My little fishy loved the water, and loved being independent with her froggy swimmer.
 Discovering God's beautiful creation.
 Silly cousins.
 Reunited with sweet Emma this week too!
 Happy Birthday Tobiah!
 A new world of Legos we have yet to encounter.
 Lots of sandcastles.
 We enjoyed our beach tent!
 Cheeses!
 HG's first attempt on a two wheeler with training wheels.
 Football with the boys.
 Shells with Calista.

 Sunset glow...
Family time was precious!
