Spring Break - We're in Florida!

It's spring break, and this year we have gone to Florida. Our first stop is to see Mama Dell and Papa Earl, who we are staying with for a couple days.

Today Mama Dell took us to the Sarasota Jungle Gardens.

There, we saw many colorful tropical birds.

And flamingos...

The other big attraction there are the reptiles. During the reptile encounter show, the zoologist asked Kai if he would watch over the orange box that she said contained a very dangerous animal. She is holding a snake, which Kai reached out to touch.

We found out that the box contained a baby alligator, and the zoologist thanked Kai for making sure that it didn't escape from the box.

After the show, he helped her carry the box back to the area where kids could hold the animals.

And as a reward, he got to be the first one to hold the baby alligator and a couple snakes:

Later in the afternoon, we went to the beach. Kai loved looking for shells, and there were tons to choose from washed ashore.

The day before we left home, it snowed. Now we are enjoying sunshine and good times.

Gotta love it!


  1. In that last picture, Kai really looks like he is maturing quickly. Kai must have had a lot of fun at that park. I know Kai enjoyed the beach. I take it you were collecting shells at the beach. How did Kai like the water? It must have been warmer than the water he is used to swimming in.

    1. We didn't spend too much time in the water, and never went more than calf deep as we had heard that there had been problems with riptides lately. He really enjoyed collecting the shell, though.

  2. I've been to Sarasota...gorgeous location! Enjoy!

    1. We won't get to see too much in Sarasota this time so we'll have to come back!
