Florida Aquarium.. Part 1?

2 Dec

While Mom and Paul were at work the first fews days before we left for the Bennett’s – Tom, Zoey and I found some fun things to do! Monday we went to the Florida Aquarium, back to Clearwater Beach then got home just in time to pick up the hard workers and head to Longhorn for dinner.

(When I first saw this picture I thought the mermaid had uneven cleavage..  But nope – just Zo’s hair!)



So.. I have more pictures of the aquarium and the beach but WordPress won’t let me upload any more until I pay for an upgrade! I didn’t realize there was a limited amount of space I could use when I first signed up.  Any advice?  Is it worth it to pay for an upgrade and stick with WordPress or should I transfer everything to Blogger? Or does Blogger make you pay once you reach your limit too?  Help!


Airfest 2011

17 Nov

A few weekends ago we went with Jonathan and Laura to the air show at the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.  I couldn’t believe how many people were there!  The lines to walk through each plane were insane.  When we actually got inside the pilot would tell us about their history – in one plane you could still see sand in the keyboards from being in Iraq just a few weeks beforehand. There were tents filled with special warfare that the guys had fun ogling over too, and the actual air show was amazing. I have so many pictures from the day but here are a few!


You could tell Zoey was a little nervous at first from all of the loud noise, but then she was in awe every time a plane flew by.


Waiting in line to sit in the helicopter Zoey wouldn’t leave this poor kid alone..

Definitely wasn’t expecting that last plane..
