We’re Back

12 Aug

Andrew and I got back late Sunday night from our very adventerous vacate to Florida.  We moved around a ton so it was was a very fun vacation, but not a very relaxing one.  Out of 300+ pics, here are a few highlights:

We took an airboat ride through the everglades and saw wild aligators.  I was a little scared this one was going to jump in our boat.  AHH!





Then I figured that the best way to get over something is to face your fears.  His mouth was taped shut but it was still a little wierd.





And here is my brave man! 






We went on a dinner cruise.  This was our waitress, Bertie.  She had to have been at least 85.  I thought she was going to fall over when she brought out our tray full of BBQ ribs, but she was so cute.  I loved Bertie.

After dinner, there was a show; complete with magician and ventrilaquist.  “The scarf is in one hand, now its GONE!”  Unbelievable. 



If you have ever been on a cruise, you know how small the rooms are.  We took a 2 night cruise to the Bahamas.  2 twin beds.  30 year old matresses.  The ship left a lot to be desired.  We ended up upgrading to the “suite.”  It made the quarters bearable.




Once we got to the Bahamas, we took a boat ride and went snorkeling.  The water, of course, was beautiful.  I saw Opera’s houses.  Yes, I said houseS. 







We went to the John F. Kennedy Space Center.  Andrew liked it, but being the science nerd that I am, I think I enjoyed it a little more than he did.  Especially since he kept falling asleep during the videos. 







I touched the moon!! (at least a part of it)








We took a detour on our way back and spent a few days in Atlanta with the Whittakers.  They took us to a very southern, “Pigs and Peaches Festival.”





Got a babysitter and went out on the town!!






And the end of our vacation was a little foiled when…….

Andrew got an infection in his knee and had to spend about 10 hours total in the hospital getting IV antibiotics.  At least we got to watch the olympics.





Had fun but we are glad to be home!
