Blue Horizons

Yesterday we had the opportunity to see the new dolphin show, Blue Horizons, at Sea World and meet some beautiful animals.
Like this joey who was so soft and cute.

and this ridiculously adorable owl I wanted to take home.

Porter was more into organizing a little book with pictures of animals than actually looking at the real animals.

The show was a beautiful mix of birds, dolphins and acrobatics. Liesl loved the "red bird lady" who swung out over the crowd.

It was a really beautiful show and the kids loved it. When we heard a commercial for it on the radio today the kids both asked if they could go again.
The rest of the day was spent playing in the kids area, relaxing on a grassy hill by Rebecca of Girl's gone child and admiring the Epiphanie Bag Tracey Clark was carrying.

Play Ball

Liesl is in a sports program at her preschool that she really likes. I hope she learns a few things and is ready for soccer in the fall.

dance dance dance

My good friends are getting married this Saturday and took some dance lessons to prepare for the big day. I went along for one of the classes and took some pictures.

I am so happy they found each other and can't wait to celebrate with them.

the perfect end

This past Friday we spent the afternoon and evening at a local hotel celebrating the 6th birthday of our good friend's daughter. It was the perfect way to end the week and we all had a lovely time.

It was cold, but the kids didn't mind.

Fun at the otter exhibit

I told her she could get her face painted for her birthday, she didn't mind that it was 2 months late.

Tree Fort

My brother built an awesome tree fort for the kids in the yard. The kids are really happy with the way it turned out and I am happy that most of the wood used was recycled.
