Florida Fun!

Hey Neighbors!

Wait until you hear all that we have been doing!  We went bowling again, this time just some of our family!  It was so much fun!  We have eaten out several special places.  The children really enjoyed eating at the Hungry Howies Buffet.  We had a great time.  The water pictures are from down near Sarasota.

We have also visited several Thrift Sores!  I have managed to add a few Boyd's Bears and Cherished Teddies to my collection!

I remember the Spanish Moss from growing up in Florida.  The pony I owned loved to nibble on and play with it.

And of course there are the ever-present lizards.  They are all over!  I remember when our cat used to catch them and bring them to us.  One time she brought a live one inside to play with and the lizard clamped down on her toe and wouldn't let go.  She was flying all over the house trying to get rid of it!

I am also enjoying the hotel stays.  You will hear more in the next few days.  Thank you for being patient with me while we are traveling!  Look for more posts the next couple of days.

The children thought the vehicle above was funny because he was driving around with three huge stuffed animals in his vehicle.  And we had to snap fast to get a picture of the one below as it passed us!

See you soon At the Fence!
