    If you have visited our blog before you may have noticed some changes to our look as well as the title of our blog. We have updated the style to fit Tyke's personality. As for the title, our little adventure seeker has developed into so much more; aspiring actor, future magician, world traveler, and dolphin activist too.

 We will still be taking her near and far and continue to share ideas for family friendly vacations as well as local events in the Tampa Bay area. However, more focus will be on sharing Tyke's trials and tribulations of growing up. 

About us (from our website) began as a way to share ideas on family friendly vacations, ie; hotels, resorts, cruises, etc. As time has gone on, Take the Tyke has evolved into so much more. It has become a site to share our adventures with Tyke near and far as well as share her daily trials and tribulations of being a kid.

In March of 2007, at the age of 3 months,Tyke came to live with us when we obtained permanent guardianship. She is actually our granddaughter. She calls us mom and dad and we have become her "forever family". I would not trade this for the world. Tyke is a great joy to us. It is my hope that one day when she is grown Tyke can look back at her childhood through this website and see how much she means to us, her family, and so many others who follow her on here as well as on twitter.

We invite you to follow Tyke on her adventures through childhood and beyond as she grows and soars towards her dreams for the future.

Warmest Regards,
Cynthia Parrott
