The flying swan
While I was in FL we were looking at old slides and found some of my family in this same raft from 20 years ago

Isn't the water beautiful. It was so warm that you could just walk right in
My 2 beach boys
I love this one
This was our elaborate set up on the beach. It was like home away from home.

Danny was waving like the queen. He felt very royal being so tall

The current was really strong at Howard Park so Danny liked holding onto the fishing net to keep from floating way in his tube
Walking and jumping on the beach

The water was brackish which made it really red

Danny's Haircut

Danny loves getting his hair cut. As a special treat we took Danny for a trim in FL. Our coupon included a shampoo and he was really into it. The hairdresser was really nervous about washing a toddler's hair, but he did great.

He was so proud of the end result.

Could I love this happy boy anymore?
Perhaps I don't love him enough if I allow this to happen?
Big boy would "swim" on the step by himself
Aunt Tessie brought Danny some flan. He wasn't sure what to think about it.

Honeymoon Island - Dog beach

Honeymoon island is a wonderful beach near my parents. They allow dogs on one part of the beach, and we make a point to go there.

Danny and Pappi really enjoyed looking for seashells. He brought a bag home to give some away to his friends.

Tarpon Springs

Tarpon Springs is the Greek village about 5 minutes from my parents house. We went to walk around one evening. Danny loved looking at all the boats. It was killing him not being able to go for a ride.
He loved the turtle

We went in a really awesome store and met a 4th generation sponge diver from Greece. He gave Danny a necklace, and this is a sponge that he found.
