Brett and I spent 5 days in Florida visiting his brother John and his wife Christy, and their kiddos Austin and Brock. Now that we are back to work, school, and real life we are wishing we were still there. We had such a great time. Living clear across the country, we never get to see John and Christy so it was great for us to spend a few days with them! They were the best hosts!

Airboat ride! (I know, we are not looking our best, but to our credit we went straight from the gym)

We were able to celebrate Brock's 2nd birthday with him, Elmo style!
Our 15 mile bike ride down "Shark Valley" where we saw tons of alligators! These suckers were everywhere!
Brett fishing in the canal behind John & Christy's house

We ate at a super yummy burger joint, Le Tub. It's right along the water with a great view!

Check out the size of their burgers!!

Denny's Latin Style-just had to take a pic. We didn't actually eat there.

Highlight of the trip...SWIMMING WITH DOLPHINS!!. It was such a neat experience. We swam with a mother dolphin and her baby.

Another yummy meal at Bubba Gumps at Ft. Lauderdale Beach

Thanks John and Christy for showing us such a great time, it really was just the vacation we needed!
