Trip to Florida Post #1

FINALLY!!! Sorry this is like the longest post in the world, and it's not even all the pictures I'm gonna put up! Mostly I put all these up so people can save these to their computers as needed (namely Cami). We had so much fun in Florida!

So Florida in August is like this....on a cloudy day, you feel like you just jumped into a hot tub of your own sweat, then went into a sauna. Yes, it was very hot and humid. But strangely, it didn't bug me as bad as I thought it would! (I am a wimp when it comes to heat)

Kaylee did amazingly well on the flight. We spent a week trying to get her excited about flying on an airplane, and apparently it worked! Every morning before we left she would wake up and say, "Fly a airplane in two days?" When we were actually on the plane she said "We flying!" Then upon decent she'd say, "We falling!" We never usually let Kaylee have gum, but we gave her some to prevent ear pressure problems on the first flight, and every flight after that, the second she got into her seat she would say, "some gum?" Smart girl.

We stayed in some condos on Clearwater Beach, like right on the beach! The sunsets were amazing. We went scuba diving, visited Caldezi Island which had the number 1 North American beach (though none of us could figure out what was so great about it), saw an awesome aquarium, went to Disney World and Busch Gardens, even ate at Bubba Gumps, and for our anniversary, Nate took me on a dinner cruise called the Starlight Pincess!

So these are all the pics we took with our waterproof camera, so its mostly beach and scuba diving. I will post the rest on my next post.

These pics are from the beach on Caldezi Island











This is Ginnie Springs where we went scuba diving. The water was as clear as a swimming pool! We went into a cavern and did a drift dive down the river. We saw lots of fish and Ryan saw some turtles!

There were so many sea shells, its like that was what the beach was made of!
