A Little Bit of Sunshine

by Dani

The first week of February, the kids and I went to visit friends in Florida for a week. It was a great break for us all with warm weather and time with good friends. It was actually a bit too cool the first few days to swim but by the end of the trip it was warm enough. 

We spent two days at the beach, one at the pool, one at an awesome play ground, and one day at the zoo. The kids also got to fishing and we saw a dolphin up very close as it hunted in the same docks.

Cricket had the best time fishing. He turned out to be a total natural! He caught 6 fish! Ladybug caught 4 fish, and Butterfly caught three. They were all too small to eat but the kids did have fun feeding the hungry birds!

The zoo was also a lot of fun. We were able to interact with a lot of animals and feed birds and giraffes. 

This zoo also had a lot of rides for the kids including a coaster and bumper boats. Here are a few more pictures from the day.

Our last day there we spent on the beach. It was a great beach, calm and pretty quite. The kids were able to run and play to their hearts content. 

What a great trip! I am so glad we were able to go.
