The long awaited Florida Post...

So I figured since we've been back from Florida for almost a month now, I should probably post about our trip. I honestly had more fun than I have ever had. I love the ocean, and so does Parker.

Having friends and family with us was a great bonus, but I think we would've been fine if it had just been the two of us. Relaxing on the beach. Okay, so maybe it wasn't that relaxing. Let's be honest, anytime you get a 18 month old around water you are not relaxed. He loves water and swimming as much as I do, but unfortunately he doesn't know his own boundaries. He wishes I would just let go of him and let him do his own thing. Ha, he doesn't know me very well. So most of our vacation was spent with me chasing my little man, and loving every minute of it.

We went to shell island, it was so much fun. I got to snorkel for the first time, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Of course while I snorkeled my mom gave Parker boogie boarding lessons...

If you've never been to Fudpuckers and you get the opportunity, go. We had a blast there, you get to see live alligators and we even held one. Parker kept hugging and cuddling with it, my little no-fear boy.

It was really hot in Florida. I have a very high tolerance for heat, I could lounge in the sun all day no problem. Parker, however, didn't inherit that trait and he can get overheated very easily. We didn't actually know this until we were in Florida. He got sick for a couple of days, it was mostly allergies but his little cheeks were red and he was up all night coughing, not very much fun. Luckily after some benadryl and 2 days mostly indoors, he was in good shape.

Our last day in Florida we went to eat at the Crab Trap. If you ever go to Destin, you have to go there. It's right on the beach and they have amazing food.

And finally, we all had to take group pictures on the beach. Well, I took them with the help of Mr. Tripid. =) I think they turned out pretty good...

And finally, I'll leave you with one of my favorite pictures of them all...
