Manatee Viewing

Permalink 01:36:01 pm, Categories: Any  

This weekend, Haden decided he wanted to see a few manatees in the wild, so we drove down to a manatee viewing area at the Big Bend Power Plant in Apollo Beach. We saw lots of manatees in the water, as well as tons of birds and fish, but the manatees were a bit shy and remained a distance from us. So the only one Haden got to see up close was this one:

He also checked out this crazy bird… or is it a pirate?

The big #3 - what more needs to be said? We can’t believe time has passed so quickly, it’s definitely been the best 3 years of our lives.

Haden had another dinosaur cake this year - but this time the eyes lit up and the dinosaur growled! It was a big hit, needless to say.

Haden's First Circus

Grandpa and Kaye Kaye visited for Haden’s birthday weekend. As part of the celebration, we went to the Ringling Bros - Barnum & Bailey Circus. None of the adults had been to a circus in a very long time, but everyone seemed to honestly enjoy themselves.

Happy (Dark) New Year!

We had to “rough it” this New Year’s Eve. The power went out at 9:15pm and didn’t come back on until after 2am! It was Haden’s first real experience without electricity; at first he was scared, but soon learned how cool playing with flashlights can be. It was just like camping out!

Jungle Gym

The biggest present Haden got for Christmas was a jungle gym. It took Mom and Dad the better part of 2 days to build it in the backyard. Haden helped, too, of course!

Christmas Day!

At last the day has arrived on which Haden can open all the presents under the tree. This year was the first time he really seemed to truly enjoy opening presents - he was full of curiousity and anticipation.

Cold Bucs Game

Yes, Haden is still a huge Bucs fan. He has a Josh Freeman jersey (number 5) and whenever he plays any kind of ball or racing game, he has to say “I’m number 5!". Usually Mom is number 20 and Dad’s number changes by the day.

(Yes, it was cold in Florida - about 48 degrees at game time.)
