What a Beauty!!

The gardens are in full bloom and Mira is around 1 1/2 years old, so it was a perfect time to snap some shots at Norton's Art Gallery!!

A Week with the Girls!

This post is a bit over-due, but I have more coming my way, so I better just get it done. That's why it's a very short and sweet!

Avi and Olivia's annual week-long visit has come and gone. We had a blast! Mira loved having her cousins here!

The girls enjoyed going to the park and playing at the "sprayground" as well as the playground.

Avi got to be a hamster! She wanted to try it in Destin, but shedidn't get to. Glad she got another chance - she really had fun (while everyone else looked on)! At one point, Kenny said Mira was trying to strip down so she could get in the "wa-wa"!

We did lots of letterboxing, and even hid our own box! Maybe you'll find it?  =)

We found our first box!!

Mira loved helping "stamp in!"

Hiding our first box!!

We also tie-dyed some t-shirts to wear to the Firecracker 5K.

It seems Olivia has just made a fresh kill - no wait, that's just her tie-dyed shirt. Phew!

Olivia and I went to the midnight showing of Eclipse, so we also made shirts for that. Just realized that I didn't get a pic - too bad - they were super-cute!

Everyone enjoyed a trip to Party Central. Olivia, Avi, and Kenny enjoyed the go-karts. Olivia, Avi, and I had a ton of fun battling it out on the bumper boats. And Mira went down the giant slide about a dozen times and still asked for "more, more" when we decided we were done.

The go-kart operator warned us not to ever let this one drive again!

Avi was all business as she rounded the track.

Avi and I got Olivia soaked! We were a great team - Avi pressed the trigger while I aimed and revved the engine.

Olivia did get a couple of good hits.

A very wet hug.

The wind in Mira's hair.

We all did great at the Firecracker, and our shirts turned out pretty cute!
