Howl-O-Scream Busch Gardens Tampa 2016

Ella has already been asking when Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens is going to open. She went last year for the first time and LOVED it. You can read about her experience HERE

 

I thought it seemed too early to be thinking about Halloween, but I guess it's not! Busch Gardens is ready!! And if you are a current Funcard holder you can buy a ticket for 2 nights of Howl-O-Scream fun for only $50!! Click on t he image below to learn more about this great deal!

Ella and I will be heading over probably in late September, and I'll be sure to share a full review!

Happy Birthday Ella

Happy 11th Birthday Ella!!

Today you turn 11. 

It doesn't seem like 11 years ago you entered the world at dawn, in a flower garden with only your daddy and I there. It was magical and will always be one of the BEST days of my life. This is your first photo with your daddy and your big sister Haley. You two love each other so much. You truly are the best of friends and it warms my heart to see how much you enjoy being with one another. 

 

At your first birthday party you were so happy. Ronin joined our family only a few days later and your world got turned upside down. 

Now at age 11 you LOVE all things nature. You love to be outside. You love the ocean, swimming, fishing, and you are ALWAYS up for an adventure. 

I can't wait to see what this next decade of your life will bring for you. Your first kiss, your first boyfriend. You'll learn to drive and you'll graduate high school and head off to college. I don't want to think about that just yet. For now, for now I'll focus on you being 11 and all the joy you bring to my life.

 

XOXO

Today at the library, I had a wild and crazy Zubat flying right in front of BoB. I don't know which is more odd. The bat or the skeleton. But what is for sure odd is that I had 21 Poke balls and I could not catch this Zubat. Laughing 

 

 

Whether it's a Charmander or a Rattata, we want to know what you catch. Share your photos with us! #‎PokeLibrary‬ ‪#‎CatchThemAll‬ ‪#‎PokemonGo‬
