Siesta Key

One of our day trips in Flordia was to Sarasota. We LOVED the beach there! We had to make the 1 1/2 hour trip twice that week to go to Siesta Key Beach. We couldn't believe this beautiful beach had free parking and was open to the public. We both thought this beach was the nicest we had ever seen.

Note: Beware of banana hammocks in some of the following pictures.

We couldn't believe the number of birds that we saw on the beach. They weren't the nicest birds either. If you had food in your hand, they would snatch it right from you.

We also loved the sand! It almost had the consistency of baby powder and it was white!

In the following pictures you can see schools of fish. We thought it was pretty neat that SO many of them would just swim right around you.

Happy Birthday to Me!

John suprised me with a suprise before my birthday! Check out Jay and Amy's blog for pictures I have some great friends and family!

Lovers Key

John and I celebrated our anniversary and my birthday in Flordia this year! We stayed at my aunt and uncle's beautiful home in Fort Myers. We were there alone! My dad and Sally kept Luke! It was a great present from a wonderful husband! Below are pictures from our first day on vacation at Lovers Key.

On the right hand side on this picture is a manatee! John and I were pretty excited to see a manatee in its natural habitat. The lady who worked at this park said she sees them everyday.

Luke and his cousins were eating breakfast at their pappy's the other day. Alex, Luke's cousin, was trying to get Luke's attention. He was saying, "Luke, Luke, Luke!" Luke was ignoring him. Finally he said, "My name is Lukey!" After that Alex called Luke by the correct name, and Luke would respond!

We went to Rascal's for food and games the other day. Luke was a little young for the games, but we still had a great time!

Luke loves firetrucks! Our local fire company had a fire safety event where they had food, games and firetrucks. Luke was really excited to go, but when we first got there he said, "I'm scared!" He did enjoy the firetrucks, eventually, but he refused to go in them. He did get a chance to use one of their hoses from the firetrucks.Here he is helping fight a fire!
