Wonderful Family Vacay!

I turned 60 years old in February and Ken turns 60 in October.

As a surprise gift, the kids all went together and planned a long weekend family get together in Key Largo, Florida. The vacation happened last weekend, and I sure wish that I could teleport right back there for one week every month. It was just so nice having all the kids and grandkids there.

Ken and I flew down with Aaron, Laura, and Camden. The travel day (Thursday) was long and grueling for a one year old who doesn’t want to be buckled into a carseat or confined on a plane. Much hollering was done that day.


We had so much fun, swimming, glass bottom boat ride, snorkeling, hiking, eating and drinking. It was a grand family time.

We got home last Monday and it’s been difficult adjusting to “normal life”. Thank goodness for pictures!

    How wonderful! That’s a fun collection of photos.

  2. Are you and Ken feeding sharks in those pictures? I looked twice and thought, ‘That can’t be, otherwise you’d be missing a finger or two.’ LOL! But it looks like a wonderful vacation. Minus the screaming on the airplane ride. 😉

    You never told us you were married to a younger man!

      Ha! Yes, I am an older woman.
      Those are tarpon, luckily, and not sharks.
      They could bite, but they were so full of fish they were pretty lazy. They had the funniest “grumpy old men” faces.

      As soon as Adam got into the water, while snorkeling, he saw a five foot nurse shark swim by. By the time we got in the water it was gone, darn it!

    It’s okay to photograph drunks but posting online isn’t cool, Lauri.

    What did that bird ever do to you?

    • Lauri says:

      That bird was the smart one in the crowd! It was so hot and humid, that bird bath had fresh cool water flowing into it. He was cooling his neck. 🙂

  4. Cougar!

    Yep, look at those photos in February, lol.

    Now I got that song from the 70s stuck in my head:

    We had it all
    just like Bogey and Bacall.
    Blah, blah, blah, blah…
    just like they did in Key Largo.

    Bertie Higgins!

    So lucky! I suppose you’ve earned it, over the years. Great pics. 🙂

    You gots a good bunch of kids watchin’ over you, there’s no one more deserving!
    LOL at the tarpon–I looked them up on google images. Grumpy Fish is grumpy. Of course you found the cranes, they followed you there. http://www.universeofsymbolism.com/crane-symbolism.html

    What an awesome getaway you had! You have great kids — that’s the way to raise them, to do nice things for you later!
    I have a recent vacay to post about, too — got back when you did, but I’m still lollygagging on getting pics or anything up.

  9. Oh fun! Looks like it was a great time to be in FL 😀

    How fun! Great pics. Happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday!! ✨🙂 Who photographed the ibis bathing in the bird bath? That is a brilliant shot!

    • Lauri says:

      I took that picture, Emma. We were waiting to go out on a boat and that dude just hopped up onto the birdbath and started cooling his neck. 🙂

    A belated Happy Birthday to you both Lauri, and congratulations on keeping the WP ship afloat when so many lesser blogging mortals grabbed all the life jackets and jumped off.
