{Sweet} Zander travels around the world

He hails from Florida.  He’s traveled to China and sat on the Great Wall.  He went to Hong Kong. And then he took a short break from international exploring to drop in on us. 


We took him to Mt. Vernon.

He met Mrs. Washington (and fainted!).  She recalled a painting she once saw of a young royal who had a pet monkey – – and Mrs. Washington once had a pet bear cub.

He posed in front of the Potomac River.

The General’s statue proved a little scary for shy Zander.

He took a tour of our neighborhood by bike and then by trike.

And finally, he practiced his photography skills.

Zander is a very special guest.  You see, he’s working to raise money for the Central Florida Pediatric Therapy Foundation.    CFPT Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps children with special needs.  Its mission is wonderful :

Because building opportunities for people with disabilities strengthens the entire community, it is our vision to provide a place to live, work and play for everyone. We are committed to the idea that everyone has gifts that can impact others. It is our challenge to build venues and create opportunities for cooperative growth through the use of these gifts.

Kayla of Struttin My Stuff Photography dreamed up “Around the World with Zander” as a venture directly assisting in making CFPT’s FAITH (Families Achieving Independence through Him) projects a reality. It’s really a worthwhile effort that will make a huge impact.

And we’re so excited that Zander came to spend a little time with us!

PS: Zander might make a stop near you if you send him a note offering to host him for a few days.

  10. I must admit I am a little jealous of Zander and all of his travels. He'll get to relax in the fun and sun when he returns home……or close to home in a few weeks. I look forward to Zander visiting my family in Tampa soon.
