The four of us, Scott's brother and his family, and Scott's mom all went down to the Lil 500 Go-Karts for Rocco's first ride behind the wheels. NASCAR, look out! He still talks about it now, weeks later - "We go zoom!"
Pooja came to visit us and brought gifts - Rocco got this bubble gun and he was obsessed! It took a couple of tries, but he finally figured out how to squeeze the trigger fast enough to get the bubbles to come out. After that, there was no stopping him. Well, until he accidentally kicked over the bubble fluid that is. Luckily we have back up, but we didn't tell him that because we wanted him to go back inside the house as it was getting dark.
On our last day in Gainesville we loaded up the kids and took them to the Florida Museum of Natural History. It was a terribly rainy day so this free activity was perfect. Definitely check it out if you are in town with kids - they even have a little play area that was a big hit.
The slide is more exciting when you go down face first apparently
After the fun birthday party, we took a trip down memory lane by driving around UF's campus. This was all rather impromptu so none of us were dressed for the occasion, but nonetheless we stopped to take photos anyways. Rocco of course wanted nothing to do with posing for the camera, so we had to resort to bribery. We only had a blue lollipop, thus he has blue lips in all the photos. Oh well, we'll be better prepared next time!
