You have to love Florida.
Is there any better place to relax and soak up the sun?
(That's a rhetorical question, by the way.)

We spent the first week of April doing just that.

Along with digging in the sand,

teaching Libby how to swim not sink,

touring the Everglades,

celebrating birthday milestones,

having light bulbs go off at the Edison Estates,





more swimming,


sun setting,

smelling the flowers at the Napa Botanical Gardens,

swatting gazing at butterflies,

seeing the sights,


(Avatar made quite an impression on Libby)

Passing Time

Despite not posting much, things have been fairly busy at the Smith house...

In March we celebrated Libby's 5th birthday,

colored Easter eggs, 

and happily inventoried Easter basket goodies.

April brought a much needed trip to the beach

and Anna's 9th birthday!

In May we tried to get out every good weather weekend and hike the local parks.

Here we are at the Shaker Village - 

We also squeezed in a day exploring the steel city after taking the girls to my parents' house.
