Learn Nothing Day!

It is officially "Learn Nothing Day" and after much discussion we can't figure out how to spend the day. Perfect quote from Eric (6):

"It's impossible because when you think it, you learn it".

Everybody kept trying to come up with different ideas but in the end decided that each of them would involve learning in some way.

Pool Surfin'

It was very hot today so cooling off in the pool was a must. Cousins Carina and Sofia were visiting from the Keys along with their brother, Kevin. Everybody had a great time and Eric learned some new surfin' tricks.

Food Art - Playing with our Food!

We're having so much fun playing with our food and coming up with creative ways of serving some of our favorite things. Some of them look like mandalas and others like aliens. All of them are yummy!

South Florida Science Museum

Eddie and Rebecca Lippel came to Florida for a visit. Here is everyone having a blast at the South Florida Science Museum.

They got to build a platypus at the Robot Zoo exhibit and design and build their own robots. Outside was a setup to create huge bubbles.
The Egyptian area is always among the favorites.
Isaac discovered that Yugioh cards are designed using lots of Egyptian influence.

Happy Independence Day!

The Colucci Family came over to celebrate with us. The kids were having such a good time together and since the weather was rainy we decided to stay home. We really didn't miss out on fireworks because they were everywhere! The sky was ablaze with lights from all directions. We blew up quite a few rockets too and the kids really had a "blast".

Ellie's 50's Diner

Ellie's 50's Diner is our very favorite place to eat. We always have such a great time there. It's fun to visit with our friend Jim who always makes the kids feel so special.

Today Eric found this gigantic French fry! That must have been a huge potato!

They have lots of yummy looking pies and cakes and we try to make sure to leave room for dessert. Here's Eric about to try a chocolate cream pie.
