This week's Weekend Warriors topic is vacations, & DJ & I have only been on one together, I thought I'd share some pictures & a few stories.
Last summer we went to Tampa, FL. The original plan was to visit one of his friends who was sick, but unfortunately we didn't make it in time. DJ used to live in Tampa, so there was still plenty of visiting to do.
We decided to drive from Pennsylvania to Florida, along with DJ's sister & brother-in-law (who got married the day we left!). Exhausted from a long, eventful day, we crammed everything in the car & set out on our long trip...at 2:30 in the morning.
As much as I would have liked to, I didn't take many pictures on the ride down to Florida. I was far too miserable. It was late when we finally got there, & I was deliriously tired. But was was totally worth it the next morning. This was the view from our hotel room window.
We spent a day at the zoo where we:
hand-fed some sting rays,
...and some giraffes...
made friends with some penguins,
and ate enormous sno-cones during the worst rain storm of the trip.
We spent another day at the aquarium where we:
who were very interested in the wheelchairs.
The rest of the trip was spent laptop shopping, fighting over the baby, watching each other play Rock Band, long games of Warhammer & eating everything from all-you-can-eat barbecue to delivery sushi.
