I had such a magnificent time spending a week with my family in my old home of Fort Myers, Florida to meet my grandmother and aunts who live down there.
My family came out from Tacoma, Seattle, Colorado, and Wisconsin. We haven't seen in each in years so it was so wonderful to see everyone and live together for a week in a gorgeous rental home on the water. Meeting my cousin's kids for the first time was great. Such sweethearts. I loved having my boyfriend meet my family. My grandmother is as witty and fun as ever. It was nice being on Sanibel Island with her, where she lived for over 30 years.
Things I remember loving the most: cooking for each other, Rob & I BBQ-ing for everyone, swimming, hot tubbing and sunbathing every day, catching up, going to mini golf together, Cincinnati chili, doing karaoke in front of a crowd in a smoky sports bar & watching the Lawrence Welk Show with my Gommi.
One of the highlights of the trip was when we headed to the Everglades. Holding a baby alligator and 2-year-old alligator was SO NUTS! The airboat ride was super fun and different.
Below are my favorite photographs I took during our trip. So many happy memories I'll cherish for years!
