Personal - VACA in Florida!

Florida is just a wonderful place to be this time of year.  A few days of warmth and sunshine can just do wonders.  Spending time with my sisters and parents was pretty nice too. :)
Dad showed us this pond/swamp area where the storks roost in the evenings - we're talking hundreds of them!
Ahhh...the beach
Tarpon Springs is this really cool Greek village where they do a lot of sponge harvesting.  
And they were having a sponge festival while we were there so some of the streets were blocked off and street bands were playing.

There are also lots of stores that attract tourists.  Like us.

Probably my favorite picture of the whole trip - Mom and Yia Yia.  Love it.

Looks like you all had a good time. I'm glad you were able to get away together. How nice to take a family vacation later in life (when the siblings don't fight about sitting too close in the car, taking up too much of the bed, etc.) LOL Remember those days?????
