Good times

Our vacation in Florida visiting my parents was amazing. Not only was it relaxing, my son had a great time and learned a ton.

The weather was not that great but we made the best by visiting the Florida Aquarium. I took a zillion picture but thought I would share a few of my faves.

I love the reflection of his face in the glass.

We also went to the Lowry Zoo. Jack learned so much about animals, he told me this morning

"Ma there is an alligator in my room, he pooped in my bed." Okay maybe not the best thing to say about alligators but at least he knows what one is.

He saw how piercing blue the tigers eyes were. He ran around all day from one animal to the next and then splashed around in the fountains. He may have been the only kid playing in the fountain, as it was only 60 degrees. The other Florida children in there sweatshirts were jealous.

One of the last things we did on the nicest day was visit Fort Desoto Park/ the Gulf of Mexico. The white sandy beaches and crystal blue water was breathtaking.

Jack searched for "she-shells".

Vacation was only made possible by my generous parents, who bought us plane tickets for Christmas. They opened there camper in Florida to us and we will always be grateful for this gift. It made us realize that we need to start saving money for future endeavors. It was a good time had by all.
