Another day of adventure! Tom’s youngest son and his girlfriend came down for a visit to get out of the snow covered state of North Dakota. So we spent some time in the sun under tall palm trees, in the sand in Key Largo, and then finished the day at a Tiki bar for sunset Can’t say they were disappointed in their spring break destination. I do believe I heard one of them say ‘best vacation ever’!
Another fun day yesterday with the kids! Alligators (SO many gators), Everglades, birds gulping fish, airboat ride, ending with an epic sunset over a lake, and then a campfire with margaritas and guac. The most fun was seeing Lexi’s excitement about holding an alligator! She was shivering and jumping in excitement! Tom’s favorite part of the day? Goofing off in Target (video included), and Alex’s favorite part…when the guacamole was ready, hahaha. Read more “Florida Everglades and Alligators”
Marathon Key (Man-of-War sighting) Lots of firsts for Lexie! After the other day being in FL for the 1st time, she’s never seen a beach or a palm tree, today she learned how to snorkel! She loved it and now ready for the reef snorkeling in Key Largo this week! 1st thing she said? ‘The water is salty’!Haha. What a day! Heat index was 90°!! We are all tired and sunburned Read more “Florida Keys Snorkeling”
Another magical day and I’m so grateful for all this fun. We headed down to Key West to adventure, but stumbled upon Sunset Park on Marathon Key. We were just looking for a place to picnic for lunch but we ended up getting the beach towels out and changed into our swim suits. We soaked up the sun for a couple hours before heading to Key West for Sunset Celebration in Mallory Square. The ‘kids’ got their pic taken at the southernmost point while we went and got a sunset view table at Sunset Point Restaurant for the best view! The temp was 70°, I had a margarita in hand, listening to steel drum tropical music. Then we went to Irish Kevin’s on Duval St. So much fun! Read more “Key West Mallory Square and Marathon Key”
