So about a month ago, we decided to take a little day trip to Miami. It is only about an hour and a half away and so worth the drive. We went to the Miami Sea Aquarium...
checking out the tropical birds
watched a fish feeding

saw manatees

saw gators

watched a shark feeding, this was a little creepy for me because I am deathly afraid of sharks.
saw a killer whale show. crew was a little worried

Then we decided to head over to South Beach. It was exactly how you see it in movies. I giant party with a lot of skin. We looked a little out of place while we were building sandcastles with the kids, but the water was so gorgeous.

I am a Food Network nerd and I love Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. I had seen an episode about a diner in Miami called the 11th Street Diner so we decided to give it a try. It was so delicious. Everything was made from scratch and fabulous.

such a fun day!
random pic reading to my boy. He doesn't hold still very long to read so I had to take advantage.

Easter pics...

So I am a little behind and I have other pictures to post but I had to get these up. On Easter Sunday, we went out by our pool and took some pics of the kids in their little easter outfits. I think they turned out pretty stinking cute. I was using my friends camera but I pulled my camera out for a minute and ended up leaving it down there. When we got home and I realized it, we went back and looked around but it was gone. I am devistated, but hopefully have learned my lesson. There were pictures from Paul's 30th birthday, easter morning with their baskets, easter egg hunt, picnic at the beach and a bunch of others that I will never see agian.
Here are a few of my favorites. There are so many cute ones and ones that just make me laugh. I will probably post more later.
I can't decide which face I like better...
