When Dolphin's Attack

I thought it was just the pigeons and then the squirrels made it all seem a bit too much of a coincidence. We were minding our own business having a good time boating in Tampa when all of the sudden large fins appeared in the water. We were headed back from a nice time on Shell Island collecting seashells and enjoying the nice day and the boat was going at a leisurely pace when things got hectic.

We realized they were man eating dolphins when the first one attempted to jump in the boat, that's when it got ugly.

They were after Ryan for a tasty snack but he wasn't having it. He punched the pack leader on the snout with his favorite Thomas the Train car and we sped off towards the dock just in time.

This just proves that even the nicest animals can be dangerous. I'm starting to think the Kingsbury's just look tasty or something!

Take a gander at these glowingly prego friends. There is going to be some crazy baby mischief coming soon no doubt!

Minigolf fun

Today we hung out at the beach, read a book, played minigolf and ate
some wonderful seafood. We are going to miss it here so bad!

Pretty Shell

Ryan loves the beach more than anything. He can spend hours playing in
the sand and surf. He loves finding shells like this and giving them
to his mommy "pretty shell mommy".

Serious planning

Today we went to Clearwater Beach. Ryan had a blast, he loves the
ocean and tries to run out into the crashing waves as soon as you set
him down. We dug a big hole in the sand and filled it with water and
Ryan played with his toys in his own private pool.

After snacking on some local cuisine (McDonalds hehe) we went home for
a nap. Here is a picture of Ryan and his mom planning out tomorrows
itinerary. Tonight we dine on seafood!

a bite to eat and a delicious fresh brewed Red in beautiful Indian
Shores Florida.

It's been awesome lately, my mom has been working the graveyard shift at the VA hospital and has been dragging her tired butt up to our house to hang out with Gamma's little man. It's so fun to watch them play and see how much he loves just being around her. It definitely stirs up some feelings that I had when I was a little boy.

My grandparents are awesome and have been a huge part of my life so it is really neat to see Ryan growing up and loving his as much as I do.

Snow Day

Well it happened. It snowed, not quite as much as certain forecasters predicted but we did take advantage of the warmer "day after" and the 1 ½ inch of slushy snow left on the ground to start up some snowman action.

After tossing Ryan in his previously unused sled and carting him around the yard a bit we set up shop in the backyard with mommy in a lawn chair and dad and Ryan playing around in the snow. After getting Frosty up and running complete with a hat and 2 arms, Frosty decided to get frisky. Oh yeah he wanted a fight. It was on!

Afterwards we relaxed and enjoyed natures favorite, the "Original" Snowcone!
