Florida Homeschool Family Fun!

Sunny Sunday in St. Petersburg, Florida

Last year was the Waterfront Park’s Centennial in Downtown St. Petersburg. Above is the poster to commemorate the celebration. It’s so cool that we were actually sitting in the very middle of the above poster. We took pictures in those very Banyan trees!

I was on the hunt to add more relaxed and balanced family activities after a year of fun at the happiest place on earth.


My Clowns.They always play along!

We had a glorious time together at the North Straub Waterfront Park. We finally found balance from the busyness.


After stopping at Michael’s to buy some Prismacolor pencils (with a coupon of course), we headed out to have some family fun. The outdoor cafes were buzzing, people walking their dogs, families tossing Frisbees and couples walking hand in hand enjoying the cool breeze.

We had fun taking pictures and getting artsy.



They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the LORD

for the display of His Splendor.

Isaiah 61:3b


After we had our picnic snacks we all took to our creating some art. How could you not with such a view and vibe all around you.


Sometimes kids (adults too) don’t know where to begin or what to draw. Here are some great products to help your family get started.

We had the Museum of Fine Art to our right, the new Chihuly Museum to our backs and the blue sky and waters in front of us.

We had a very relaxing time


The kids had fun drawing and playing with bubbles


This is my favorite drawing of the day.

There’s our very own artist!



You know it’s good day when your kids give you “huggles”.
