2008 is shaping up to be an emotionally charged year for Larry Birkhead and his 17-month-old daughter, Dannielynn. Father and daughter recently traveled back to the Bahamas to visit the gravesite of Anna Nicole Smith on the Feb. 8 anniversary of her tragic death.

Although Anna’s death is clearly still something Larry struggles with, he knows he has to stay strong for his little girl. While in the Bahamas, he and Dannielynn also made time for some fun, visiting the Shallow Water Interaction at Dolphin Cay at the Atlantis Resort, where little Dannielynn got to pet and play with the dolphins.

“Dannielynn was a good student,” says her proud dad. “She was kicking her feet and ready to go… She was a real trooper in the water and made friends with the dolphins.”
