What can you do with the many shells we keep bringing home?

Something that jingles.

What do you do when it rains? Our children love getting in their swim suits and going to play in all the puddles! This was a perfect day to play as well. The rain poured down, and it was refreshing! Can we just say that we love our home? We do.

Stopped for the picture

Unsure of getting wet, but still wanting to play.

No hesitation here. This monkey loves water!

We continue our search for alligators, but get to see many other neat things along our way! Like a bird that doesn't float on the water, it swims! (Like Anhinga which you can see with its long neck sticking out of the water)

Up high in the look out tower to "ascertain our whereabouts". We tried to see if we could see alligators from above, but no luck. We did see a Purple Gallinule! (link here to see)

Smiles All Around

"When we're helping we're happy, and we sing as we go..."

Benjamin loves helping and will step up to feed Andrew if I am not doing my job. I love seeing them being so happy together.

A new toy, thanks to G'pa and G'ma Siler. He loves it! There aren't many new things for this little one, so it is quite the treasure!

Apparently there was a party going on while we were all cleaning up. It was kind of like a Halloween party with "special" hats. Silly children, I had to capture a picture, although I think they will be embarrassed by them at certain points in their lives.

While the above party was going on, the other half of the family was working hard out in the yard to make our bushes beautiful. Look at those hard workers! The yard looks amazing thanks to them.

"I spy with my little eye something that is looking back at me... What do I spy."

A little video for grandparents to see how much a new toy is loved.
