Florida Trip!

We got to spend a whole week in warm Fort Myers, Florida visiting Grammy & Grandpa. It was a very welcome relief to the biting cold we've had here in Kansas. The first 3 days were perfect beach and pool weather. The last half of the trip saw a bit chilly temps for Floridians (low-mid 60's) but we Kansans weren't complaining. Here are some pics and vids to commemorate our time there. Many thanks to Grammy & Grandpa for entertaining us. I did gain 5 lbs. so I do not wish to thank them for that! :)

Oliver packing for Florida. Please excuse my just-showeredness!

Warm enough (for some) to romp in the waves.

We happened to plant ourselves next to a giant hole someone dug in the sand. Needless to say, Oliver was set for the rest of the day. :)

Obligatory family beach pic.

I like big birds and I cannot lie.

Grammy and her O at Oliver's favorite place to eat on the beach. Live music, ya know.

Grandpa had some "wardrobe malfunctions" just after this shot was taken!

For the second year in a row, we went to the Naples Zoo when it was too chilly for the pool.

We discovered a GREAT park in Fort Myers called Lakes Park: complete with train rides, mega-playground, paddle boat rentals, and, um, giant inflatable slides!

While at the park (it's HUGE), we also discovered a Renaissance Festival going on. It has always been Matt's dream to attend one of these festivals, and this one did not disappoint. Top 5 places to people watch in the world. I dare say I will be forced to attend the one in Kansas City this year. The things we do for love!

Oliver sported his face-painted sword from the festival onto the airplane. He was a wee-bit grouchy at having to leave sunny Florida to come back to cold Kansas. Can't say I blame him. We had a blast!
