Best Summer Ever

I can't believe the summer is coming to a end. We had the best summer ever! Seriously, it was wonderful we did more then we have ever done. We went on vacation, had family and friends visit and saw so much locally. I just downloaded a ton of photos off my phone to share. I don't want to forget so many memories. Out of all things the gift of time with my children is something I will never ever regret. Yes hard at times but the memories we have shared are my world.
My garden is growing, these were taken in late spring and since then I will update the flower explosion. I love my garden so much! I am not great at knowing everything yet but with time I am learning more and more.

My flowerless Hydrangea, I guess I am doing something wrong here but the thing has grown huge
I had a nice garden this year, lots of tomatoes! I grew cucumber, peppers, and even a couple watermelon.
Butterfly Bushes, which we have had a huge increase in bees, dragonflies, and butterflies with
Pretty Magnolia's 
Do you believe I had this beautiful Pained Bunting? I could not believe it, one of the most beautiful birds I have ever saw and in my back yard!! 
My Fur Baby, love him!!
I have tons and tons of pics to post, coming soon

And...more Keys

I love shore birds, so many beautiful birds
Kids got to swim with dolphins this time all three. They loved it such a neat experience. I bought the CD of all the images so I will post those soon. These are not great but you get the idea.
I love Theater Of The Sea it's one of my favorite places. Jaden and Lauren even got another dolphin kiss. Love this place, small close up experiences with wonderful aquatic animals. The owner loves cats too and has a rescue set up at the park. You can visit all the cats in the sanctuary. The boys loved this so much.
We fed the Tarpon so cool but scary looking. They jump right out of the water to eat their fish

We went to our favorite little bird sanctuary and they had a Blue Jay named Flop. It was the cutest thing ever!! He did meow just like a kitty

Love this picture, pretty much sums up his love for animals and his sweet personality.

More Florida Keys

I have not seen a Manatee in a long time, last time was almost 20 years ago. I walked around our hotel and I was so happy I found one!! He or she was just cruising along and I could touch her she was so close to me by the pier.
Beautiful sunsets in Florida
Love this one too and the one below
We didn't catch to much, but we did eat these Mangroves that night. On the last part of our charter we went snorkeling in the middle of the ocean. A little scary considering it was deep, the water was over grass so it was not real clear and there was a current. Rob jumped in then me then Drew. I am looking around, and I hear everyone else get out and they tell me that their is a shark below, ha ha. The snorkeling fun did not last long.
Someone rode their canoe up to one of the restaurants we ate at one night
