Build A Bear Jonas Brothers Event...

Yesterday, Bruce, Evan, Isabella and I spent the day together while Jonah went to Busch Gardens with his best friend, Ben. We went to see the movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs! It was different from the book, which has been a favorite in our family for years, but they did a great job of building upon the original story.
Afterwards, Isabella and I went to a VIP event at Build A Bear to launch the new, special edition Jonas Brothers dog. They had lots of fun stuff going on as Isabella built her was really fun!

Goodbye Old Friend...

Today we said goodbye to a faithful and loyal friend...our beloved dog, Harley. Everyone who ever met Harley said what a great dog he was and he will be missed. He shed like crazy, but because he was so amazing, we all put up with it! Harley loved to run in the snow when we lived in MD and lay on the warm grass once we moved to Florida...and even took a swim in the possible home to alligators (the lake behind our house) on the very first day in our new house! He liked to lay on his belly with his front paws crossed and knew how to shake. One of his favorite activities in his younger days was wrestling with Bruce and he often tried, unsuccessfully, to join in the "reindeer games" with Cooper and Gracie when they wrestled with Bruce.
We love you Harley and know that you're chasing rabbits in heaven! Thank you for many years of love and devotion....

When Will They Just MOVE Here??

The day before we left for Captiva, we got together with our good friends, the Butehorns, who were visiting our area of Florida again! This time, they vacationed on Longboat Key so we got to spend the day with them at The Colony. The kids had a ball playing football in the pool, since the Gulf was really rough because of a hurricane that was heading toward the panhandle. Afterward, we all went to Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant for dinner...yummy!
