Even a trip to the Dentist can be FUN!

Shhhhhh....there is a really neat little beach with a dock right behind Dr. Hartman's office. Very few people know about this and we are keeping it a secret. It sure is a fun place to know about when you have to wait. The time went by really quickly and we can't wait to go again!

Seacrest Scrub Natural Area-Boynton Beach

Seacrest Scrub is one of those places we drove by hundreds of times and finally stopped to check it out. This natural area consists of 54 acres that have been left undisturbed even though it is surrounded by residential and commercial property. You enter the trail on the east side of seacrest Blvd, just south of Bethesda hospital and before you get to Delray Beach.
Today was a perfect day to walk through and observe the beauty and peacefulness of this hidden treasure.

Lots of gopher tortoises call this home and burrows
like this are located throughout.
Their presence is also evidenced by the bite marks on the prickly pear cactus.

Happy Valentine's Day

The day started off with pancakes topped
with chocolate and strawberry syrup. Yum!
We drove to Toys R Us so Isaac could download
something to a DS game through the WiFi connection
available in the store only.
Of course, we found a few other goodies while we were there.

Here are some of the cards from our HEART ART ATC trade from last week:

Mounts Botanical Gardens

Today we visited
Mounts Botanical Gardens in
West Palm Beach.
It had been awhile since our last visit and it is even more
beautiful than we remembered.
The weather was perfect and there were so many things in bloom
that it's hard to believe this is winter.
The natural maze has grown very tall but the kids commented
that it seems to be getting smaller to them!

The Palm Beach Zoo in the Winter

The White alligator at the Palm Beach Zoo almosts looks fake. We stayed and watched it for awhile just to make sure it moved. Oh, and Eric spotted some of it's poop, which proves beyond any doubt that it is real. It's only there for a limited time so we were lucky we got to see it!
There was quite a bit of chill in the air and it seemed that everywhere you looked there were iguanas soaking up the warmth of the sun.

We also saw Maya, the new baby jaguar. She was having such a good time playing with her mom.
We have been posing for pictures on these bronze tortoise statues for years. Even when we get too big to sit on them, we will never be too old for the zoo.
