Final Full Day

I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of all these Florida updates! I didn’t want to leave anything out though! :)

This was our final morning at my Grandpa’s house. You know I forgot to mention my Grandpa’s house is less than a mile from the ocean and it’s one road with a draw bridge over the inter-costal waterway!  

Since it was our last morning we wanted to get to beach extra early to watch the sunrise!

Luckily a friendly fisherman was there to take our picture!DSC06655

The air was still quite chilly, but that made the water feel super warm !DSC06669

It’s fun to draw in the sand! I might have to frame this for some more decor in my office! :)DSC06677      DSC06683 Kyle thinks he’s Super Man! ;)DSC06684   

Perfect way to start our last day in Florida!DSC06688    DSC06692

After our serene morning at the beach we went back to my Grandpa’s, packed up and went to breakfast. My Grandpa loves Cracker Barrel. He says it the “old people’s place”! I like to look at all the different things they have in the shop…check out this giant Hershey’s coin bank! DSC06695  

After breakfast Wendi, Kyle, and I headed back to her place near Tampa, about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Kyle enjoyed a movie on the way…he looks deep in thought! ;)DSC06698

And Wendi safely drove us the whole way through what she calls the “butt crack of Florida”…the middle of Florida & it’s not pretty. lolDSC06699 

Check out this GIANT signs that greets you when you get off the turnpike!!DSC06701              

 

Wendi had to work so Kyle & I enjoyed a little date night! We had pizza at Pizzeria Valdiano! DSC06721

Hawaiian, of course! (it’s our favorite!)DSC06716  

We didn’t eat too much pizza though because we knew what we wanted right down the sidewalk…Cold Stone!! Kyle made the comment that we had ice cream everyday while we were in Florida!! Just the way I like my vacations! ;)   DSC06722 

Mmmm…PB cup perfection!!! Feel free to drool!DSC06723 

We sat outside and enjoyed the Florida scenery!DSC06725 DSC06726

After our date we picked Wendi up from work and hung out at her apartment for the rest of the evening. We were sad that our vacation went by so quick, but it is always good to go home too!

I should be back to my regular posts tonight! I have a long day today. 8+ hours of work and 3 hours of teaching tonight!

Later friends! <3

I enjoyed our vacation! :)

I've never been a Cold Stone person, but that PB perfection has me re-thinking my habits. :)

So glad you had such a great time in Florida. You should definitely move there. We go pretty often. It's only about 4 hours from where I live. You know I love the beach! =)
Way to go on the 7/8 dress. That's my goal size. U rockin it girl!
