We returned home from Florida yesterday evening from a great time away as a family. It was our annual beach trip with the Wiens family to Anna Maria Island (I will do another post with picture overload from that trip).
We arrived to Orlando a few days early and Steve and I got away for 3 days for some time alone before little man makes his arrival soon. Mom kept the kids and we had some great time together.
We were trying to find good deals on things to do while we had our time and landed on 2 different groupons. One was a Casino Cruise which really meant a cheap way for us to spend 5 hours on the water and get a meal with it. We might have been the only ones under 60 years old on the cruise but while most of the people lost money indoors on slot machines, we sat out on the balcony all afternoon enjoying the ocean view and quiet time to sit and talk together.
The second day we rented a boat out of St. Pete and had a day on the water just the 2 of us. We picked up our favorite Publix Subs (grocery store in the south and not in KS) and spent the day cruising Tampa Bay. The weather both those days was absolutely amazing, high 70's and pure sun. My white winter skin was almost in shock.
Besides being outside we love to eat good food.
Mom and the kids had a great time.
We came back to Orlando on Friday and headed out to the beach Saturday. We stopped at one of our favorite places called Parksdale on the way over and had strawberry shortcake treats with my dear college friend Callie and her sweet family.
