THE RINGLING

So I started this post awhile back and now it is three months since we visited The Ringling. I have no more words to say and I believe I covered everything.  

I haven't even looked at my photos from New York yet! Getting sick changes things and when I was in Florida I was most likely already ill but didn't know the extent of it at the time. 


On June 24th, our wedding anniversary, we went to The Ringling in Sarasota, Florida. As you know I was in Florida visiting my dad, celebrating his 93rd birthday on the 25th and visiting family. Mark was in town and so was Adam.

We had a really nice day and if you are ever in Sarasota I recommend that your visit The Ringling. The Circus Museum was really fun. We walked around the grounds, walked through their home and the art museum.
Mad Snapper had the best photo.....HERE
She has a lot of posts worth looking at! 










Their mansion on the waterfront.





Nightlight designed after the leaded windows on their home. Just had to have one for myself! 








The Art Museum
 Love the turtle on the fountain! 

I spotted this in town and we stopped by after The Ringling. I love it! You can read the link above the photo. It was originally placed in Sarasota in 2005. Head on over and read the rest of the story on this awesome sculpture. 

After the Ringling we had a very special Anniversary dinner with Adam who treated us! We went to the Columbia Restaurant for some Cuban food. We had a really nice time and the food was delicious. Thanks again Adam.

The next day we celebrated my dad's 93rd birthday with the family. It was a fun evening with pizza, dessert and presents! 

 Adam with his grandpa.....

And this special moment when my dad got to speak to his great granddaughter Amanda who was in France. He was so amazed that he could see her on the phone and talk with her. It was so precious and special to all of us.......

After I got home from Florida I went to the The Ringling store online to buy that nightlight and a poster I wanted. It was way easier than bringing them home. So the poster came and it was dented. I of course bitched about it and was sent another one. We finally put it into a frame yesterday and hung it in my office. (sorry about the reflection in the photo)
