Welcome to Florida: Part 1 {Trip Report}

Last month we got packed up the kids and headed down to North Florida for a long weekend to visit one of our favorite families.  We hadn't been to their house in over four years, so our visit was long overdue.  
The day we arrived was perfect...the kids played in their backyard while getting reacquainted, the mom's prepared dinner with a glass of wine and the dad's caught up by the fire.
Bounce House pictured was not for us, it was a hopping kids party at the house behind our friends

We packed up the next morning and hit up the much anticipated Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.  We visited the alligators during our first trip back in 2006.  

Florida 2006

Billy has been dying to get be here ever since...besides two kids, not much has changed, right?
The alligator farm is a great place to visit for kids and parents...they sell beer folks, so your sanity will be kept.  The kids loved just walking around and taking it all in. 
We took a little break at the playground and were trying to get Lauren and Christopher to do the monkey bars.  To motivate the kids and prove I still had it...I also participated:)  The best part was that not one kid was using it, but once a few adults tried it out there was a line up of little ones!
I love this picture of Alex, he was such a sweetie and always ready to smile for my camera!
William became fast friends with their boys, the day we got home he was telling me how much he already missed them.  And getting to see Christopher and Alex again at his party last week meant so much to him.

To top the whole experience off...this happened!
Christopher's face says it all and boy was he brave.  
Alex and William's faces are priceless.

We enjoyed a fun lunch afterward with perfect weather and delicious cocktails!  The perfect start to our long weekend.
