After one of the most challenging couple of years ever, fall weather and Halloween fun will make everything better, right? At least that’s what I keep telling myself. Sigh…

I couldn’t believe it when my photographer, Sweet Memories, reminded me about our annual cousins costume photo shoot. How was it already time for another one? The pictures turned out so cute though! I love this movie…

My daughter Avery came up with this year’s “Toy Story” theme featuring herself (Bo Peep) and her cousin Aden (Woody)!

Gymnastics Classes Have Never Been Better at Twisters

When I was growing up (yes, me!), one of my favorite places to visit was Twister Gymnastics in Boca Raton. Whether it was going to a birthday party or taking a tumbling class, I remember it being such a fun experience…even though I eventually hit a 5’10” height in high school. That’s why this fall, I can’t think of a better physical activity for kids than signing them up for gymnastics classes in Boca Raton or Coconut Creek at Twisters! They’ve been working to develop healthy, happy, responsible kids for the past 25 years.

Whatever the age of your child, Twister Gymnastics has a class option for you!

  • Boys and girls gymnastics classes for ages “walking” and up
  • Florida’s top competitive team program (Levels 1-10)
  • Gymnastics Fun Days on school days off

And there are SO MANY REASONS to enroll them in this sport…even if they don’t end up ever competing in the Olympic games. 😉
