Home, again!

Lea and I had a fabulous time in the Keys. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if Kevin was there, too. After a couple "cold" days (the high was only in the upper 60's!... I'm being a little sarcastic, but it was chilly & windy), the weather was warm and wonderful. Each morning we called the manatees and a few mornings we took the boat to a local restaurant for breakfast on the water. Lea tolerated her life vest much better than I had anticipated. We spent our time playing in the sun, out in the boat and just lounging around the house. It was really great to see Uncle Dave & Aunt Sarah. When they arrived, Lea immediately started to "show off" all her tricks. It was adorable. Lea is becoming more and more independent every day and she is trying to say more things, too... like "Da" for Uncle Dave and "PeePee" for their dog Piper. Oh, my Uncle Chick and Aunt Bobbie were there with their dog Brad, too. Brad is a big, chocolate lab. Lea just loved to crawl all over Brad and especially liked it when his tail would hit her in the face. She would stand right behind him just so it would. :)

Here are some pics from our trip...

Our house on the canal.

Watching the manatees in our back yard canal.

Giving the manatees water from the hose.
Who knew they drank fresh water?

This is Charlie... see the cut on his tail.
He came by almost every day.

Feeding the seagulls.

Driving the boat with Papa.

Hanging out with Uncle Dave & Aunt Sarah.

Walking with Gaga and Papa.

So, we're back home now and missing the manatees. It was so much fun walking out the back door, right to the water. I think we'll move to the beach! ;)

I just love this pic! :)
