Mom called me one morning and said "MA wants to go to the beach and wants to go somewhere she hasn't been…. So do you want to go with us to Key West?" Twist my arm…. I love them so much. We took a long weekend and flew in to Miami then drove to Key Largo. We had so much fun being together but the Keys were NOTHING like what we thought. Pretty much no natural beaches and you have to pay to go to them and they all smelled like swamp. Our hotel had a man made beach and mom and I kayaked with manatees (mom and I kayaking was hilarious, neither of us knew what we were doing and she would say "do I paddle on the left or right" and I would yell right with all confidence but had no idea which side we needed to paddle on:). We laid outside and ate seafood and went to bed by 7:) So absolutely no complaints but just not what we had imagined. We did realize we are Gulf of Mexico type girls
This was the drive to Largo from Miami, it was the Florida swamp on one side and the ocean on the other
my feet or in my face… One of our dolphins was Bob who was the alpha male and he was not listening to his trainers so instantly my brain started playing Jaws theme music and I knew he was going to pull me under. This is what my face looks like in most all the pictures

There is a state park in Arkansas where you can hunt for diamonds. Mom, M.A., me and the kiddos all loaded up and took a road trip to find us some diamonds ;) We stayed in a hotel Friday night and swam and swam and swam.
Savvy and I were showing off our gymnastic skills in the SHALLOW end to each other. I did a perfect handstand with toes pointed then finished with a grand finale of a forward role when full fledged vertigo over took my body. I'm still underwater and I can't figure out which way is up and I'm flapping around like a fish out of water then panic thinking I'm going to drown in the shallow end of a pool from vertigo. Somehow my feet find the bottom of the 3ft pool and I survive. VERTIGO is real people ;)
This was the best picture we could get of all of us together.
We took a Saturday and drove to the Hatchie to play and have lunch. It was a beautiful day and such a neat place, we will defiently come back.
