So after being on Anna Maria Island for 3 days, we headed down to Ft Myers (where Brian's sister lives) on Friday morning and stayed until Sunday morning. Before heading down south, we just knew we needed the famous Anna Maria Donuts one last time! However, the line was 2 hours long and as much as I needed those donuts, I settled on Waffle House instead :)
On our way to Ruthies, we hit up a massive outlet and did some major shopping! New sunglasses, dress, floppy sun hat, zip up hoodie and tanks for her and an iPad case and tshirts for him!
Friday night, we went to dinner at Doc Fords (I think?) and had some great seafood! Brian had the fish tacos and I had macadamia nut red snapper. Both were very good! Saturday, we headed south for an hour and went to Vanderbilt beach, which is basically Naples. It was so busy but it was a perfect beach day! That night we went to a local pizza bar and watched the Louisville/WSU game and called it an early night!
Sunday morning, we got up and made the long trip north to Orlando! The in lawsuits moved to Orlando from Des Moines so this was our first time seeing their new house! We loved the pool and the whole outside deck will be perfect when visiting! We won't make it down to Florida again until New Years, but it'll be a perfect spot to ring in 2014! We lounged by the pool all day Sunday and Monday we headed to the Atlantic coast to New Smyrna beach! The most shark infested beach in the nation! I always see it on shark week and to our surprise, we did see one shark! It was crazy! You never think you'll be that close to a shark in your lifetime. We did some boutique shopping, ate lunch on the beach and took some walks on the beach.
Our trip came to an end Tuesday and we flew home to 40 degree temps and rain/snow. Ridiculous. We did get to see our little, rowdy girl Cali though!
Well that should be our last (flying) trip for awhile! In 6 months we've tackled The Cayman Islands, Chicago, DC and Florida! We're very excited to stay home for awhile and put those suitcases away!
