so this weekend dave and traci were here. i had a blast with them on friday exploring sea world and then on sunday grant joined us on a road trip of florida. it was so much fun. we visited two beaches on both sides of florida, took a fan boat ride in the everglades and then ate in fort lauderdale. a very adventurous trip. i love the beaches here. a lot. why? because the water is WARM. its amazing. the colors at the beach were breathtaking. the fan boat we took (with captain doug- quite a character) was a new experience. especially when it started pouring. i felt like i was in a movie. in a swamp. we were visited by some pelicans on our little boat too and they were huge. and when we finally sat down to eat that night, we enjoyed quite a bit of crab, calamari and shrimp. we had such a great time with the Barnes--- THANKYOU!!!
