Aquarium Fun!

On Friday, we went to the Tampa Aquarium. It was our last 'to-do' before we left! It was a lot of fun....really kid friendly. Afterwards, we went to Treasure Island to eat at Bubba Gumps with Ann and Fred Orr. It was a jam packed day BUT a great time!


Chloe loved this smoke machine...she went through it about 100 times and would have stayed there for another 100 if we didn't make her leave!



Dinner at Bubba Gumps!
We also got to spend a lot of time with Granny (GiGi) and Papaw (Blake's Grandparents)! Chloe had a great time visiting with them! They truly are the sweetest 2 people you could ever meet, and we cherish our time with them!




The Most Magical Place On Earth!!

Last Wednesday, we took Chloe to the Magic Kingdom....let me just say...it really is the Happiest Place on Earth. It was so magical! I have never been to Disney World so I was just as thrilled to be there! Chloe had a great time. We got there right at 9am when the park opened and stayed until the park closed at 8pm. We even stayed to watch the amazing fireworks show....plus Tinkerbell made a surprise appearance at the very end when she zip lined down for the top of the castle (her costume was covered in green lights..very neat)! Really, it was the best day of our vacation...tons of great memories. We were so happy to have Grandy and Jenks there to enjoy the day with us. Here are some videos and pictures from our fun day!


These were the 1st 2 characters that we met. We got Chloe an autograph book as soon as we walked in the park. Her ALL TIME FAVORITE character is Peter Pan. Not sure why!?!? He was very nice to her....and that is ALL she can talk about...STILL!

At the Parade with Grandy and Jenks:

"Someone told me it's all happening at the zoo"~Paul Simon


Sunday was a great day to be outside. It was a nice 75 degrees in Florida...much better than the frigid temperatures in Clarksville! We decided to take Chloe to the Tampa Zoo. It was so fun. Chloe loves the Zoo...we have been to the Zoo in Nashville several times, but the Tampa Zoo had so much more to offer. They had a really great Children's area (which we never made it too..go figure) and animals everywhere you turned. The great thing was that all the animals were out and active so Chloe really got to enjoy! We stayed just a few hours, but will certainly go back next time we come!



Checking out the Manatees with Daddy!

Florida so far...

Our trip to Florida has been great so far. We had a pretty stress free trip down...Chloe was pretty good. I have to say...she loves to fly and completely loves airplanes. She was so excited to get to Florida!

I bet you can't tell :)

(Sorry about the cracker in her mouth...oh, just in case you don't catch it..she tells me to 'calm down'...what am I going to do with her? :)

Saturday we had dinner with Granny and Papaw (Blake's Grandparents) and his Cousin Neil, his wife Keanna, and their 2 boys, Cayson and Cooper. Once Chloe warmed up, she had a great time running after the boys. They brought over a bounce house for them to play in...Chloe had a ball. It was nice to just hang out and relax. I am certainly ready for a vacation!
