A Photo Journal of Our Trip To Florida

We had a great Thanksgiving trip to Florida to visit my Dad and Debbie. Here are the little angels (just a little hint of sarcasm) on Thanksgiving day...Mezmur's first Thanksgiving.
What joy a ball can bring...

We visited a few great sites in Naples. This is at the Botanical Garden. This is right before the butterfly crawled onto his hand. A really big deal for any child.



We had a couple memorable beach trips...Rhett's favorite part of the trip. Mez wasn't too sure of the waves, but loved playing in the sand and chasing the birds and she didn't eat the sand!



We were able to take a trip to Corkscrew Audubon Sanctuary. It was my highlight. It was so much fun to hike on the 2 mile boardwalk and search for creatures. We saw many beautiful birds and one alligator. We even saw a hawk swoop down for a snake.
We took Rhett and Mez to play mini-golf. Rhett loves a good game of mini-golf.
We had lots of special time with Dad and Debbie and the kids only broke a couple things at their house. Now we are home freezing our buns off.
