Fun in Florida!!

In January, we spent two wonderful weeks in Florida!  We stayed in Kissimmee, and visited Walt Disney World 8 of our 14 days.  I took a bit of a break, and took very few pictures during our trip.  We did use Disney's Photopass,  and are waiting for our disc to arrive full of pictures.   We arrived on Alex's 2nd birthday and had sundaes for dinner at Ghiradelli.  The next day we went to Epcot.   Our third day we headed over to the gulf.

These pictures are from the trip we made to Tampa Bay Electric.  Manatees winter hear in the warm water.  In the bottom picture, the thing that looks like a rock in the water is a manatee.  I'll admit that I was a little disappointed that their weren't any manatees really close, but it was still really neat to see these enormous animals in their natural habitat.  The best part was that it was free!

That same day we traveled out to Clearwater Beach.  The sand was beautiful!  Alex kept calling it, "snowman".   He really thought it was snow.   Sarah took the hint and decided to make a sand angel!

Playing in the sand ... which he keeps calling snow.

While we were in Clearwater, we went on a dolphin sightseeing boat (on the largest speedboat in the world - at least according to the boat, LOL).  I was so excited about seeing dolphins - they even had a guarantee!  But, unfortunately, we didn't see any dolphins.  They did give us a voucher to come back anytime in the next month for free, but we didn't have any time to make the trip back over.  The boat ride was a lot of fun, though!

Yes, Alex fell asleep on the ride!

 More Florida fun to come!
