On the pier

Last night I threw the kids in the car and we headed to St. John's Pier. We had a lovely walk as the sun was going down. They truly enjoyed being that far out over the ocean. Between talking with the fishermen and taking in the view, it was a good outing.

Ummmm, son? Don't fall in!

Hotrod took this picture of his little sister. I thought it was pretty good!

Less than a week and we go home.

Dolphin Time!

Thanks to Grandpa, the kids and I were able to experience dolphins up close and personal at Marineland! What a treat it was! My FIL's family has a longstanding history of working at Marineland in various administrative positions, so it was very special for us to go.

Does it get cuter? They were wonderful to experience!

I managed to snap one picture of Hotrod and Princess with "Chubby" the dolphin!

Can you imagine a better place to dream than staring at dolphins play? While Princess was in this position, a dolphin swam down to greet her and stayed there for quite a bit. It was exciting!

The Alantic Ocean runs parallel to the facility. It was a beautiful backdrop!

We were hot and sweaty by the time we were finished, but what a great morning!

Alligator Farm '14

The Alligator Farm is an absolute treat to go to, even for the second time! Thanks to Aunt Karen, a fabulous time was had by all of us! 

Please note that Princess is pretending to run away, Hotrod is pretending to fall off and Little Man....he is a attacking the alligator. :)

Little Man was so proud of himself for climbing the ladder!

Staring contest....who will win?

What? She is offering.

Nothing like cooling off with with slushies!
