Visiting Lithia Springs

August 29, 2014
Florida's Springs

Normally during the summer months we attempt to visit a new beach on this side of our coast or at least make it to Anna Maria Island. This summer we knew we would be staying at the beach for our vacation, so instead we decided to visit Florida’s Springs.  Lithia Springs has been on our list ever since we moved to Plant City.  I’ve been waiting for Piper to get a little bigger so she wouldn’t be scared of the cold water.  In case you’ve never been, the water remains at 72 degrees all year long.  In other words, its freezing.  At least to me, they are…

How to get $20 discount code from Reebok

A while back I wrote a blog post about riding my bike through town.  I wrote the blog post on June 1st before I got my Yuba bicycle.  Now you may wonder what’s so special about this Yuba bike.  I have two small children who are still learning how to ride and control their own bikes.  This Yuba bike allows them to ride on it with me so I have control and I don’t have to worry about where everybody is while we ride around.

A day in Tampa Bay

August 23, 2014
Tampa

Earlier this year my daughter’s school class took a trip to the Glazer Museum in Tampa. I was supposed to go but because of work commitments I had to cancel last minute. I made a promise to her that I would bring them back this summer. I had to make good on my promise so we headed down the road to downtown Tampa.  If you’ve never been to downtown Tampa and you have children, there are lots of things to do.
