Florida 2010!

It probably seems like Jake and I travel a lot, and that is probably because we do. Not having kids for 4 years of our marriage has made it easier to travel. Now that we are finally adding to our family, and with the fact that Jake is going to leave me for 9 whole weeks at Boot Camp, we needed one last trip just the two of us. So we went to Florida! We spent a few days in the Keys, and the rest near Miami with his parents. It was a blast!
The Keys: We got the tail end of Hurricane Tomas, so it was windy and rainy most of our stay there! But we were able to go to the turtle hospital ( I LOVE turtles!) and feed some of the rehabilitating turtles. We also went snorkeling along some of the reefs, but Baby Cuthbert didn't like that very much so we sat out for most of it and didn't get any pictures of it.The pouring rain in Key WestA turtle with only 3 flippers (one was amputated) being prepared for another surgeryFeeding the turtles! Fort Lauderdale: We went on an Inner Coastal Waterway Cruise (saw a navy ship about to be commissioned and some MASSIVE yachts), drove through a wildlife zoo type thing and saw the funniest sign ever (that is, it was funny until I realized just how true it could be!), and then we went on an airboat ride through the Everglades. I could not believe how absolutely beautiful the everglades were! Definitely one of the highlights of the trip!
This yacht is the 2nd biggest in the US and costs a whopping $98 Million!

We will miss you Sunny Florida!!!

I have some catching up to do!

I finally got some pictures off my camera and onto the computer, so be ready for a feast of pictures!
September: Jake took my dad, my brother Conner, and I shooting. Echo had her belt advancement in Tae Kwon Do.
October: We celebrated my one year of cancer free by going to the aquarium, and Alex had her first choir concert in Chamber Choir.

I was going to put my pictures of our trip to Florida on here, but realized that they needed a post all their own.
