On Thursday afternoon we will pick Bryan up from the Tampa airport and start our drive home. Our Florida vacation will come to an end and we will be home in time to celebrate Easter at my sister Deb’s house.
We’ve had a wonderful and very relaxing time. Jim and LeeAnn’s condo development was built on a nature preserve so we saw alligators, big turtles, snakes and lots of tiny lizards. We walked every day admiring all the different types of palm trees and the beautiful flowering bushes and trees, some I had never seen before. We relaxed by the pool under the bright blue sky while Mark read to me. We enjoyed eighty-degree weather almost every day. But the thing that meant the most to us was Jim and LeeAnn’s incredible kindness and that they made everything so easy and worry-free for us. They wanted us to make lasting memories which we did. Three of our four kids were able to visit plus many friends and relatives. We are very grateful to our friends and family that traveled many miles to spend time with us. This vacation was laid back more than in the past but equally fulfilling.
