I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from our trip to Florida last month. Even though I didn't have the SLR digital camera of my dreams (hint, hint hubby), our point and shoot Olympus camera took some really great shots. I especially loved playing with the sun early in the morning to make my subject "blackened" and the rest of the background just shine. We even made sure to take our handy-dandy little tripod (Gorilla pod which can be wrapped around anything) to catch a family shot on the beach.
We all had a great time, especially Little Man going back and forth to the beach and the pool. I think we counted five times to the pool on Mother's Day alone! Because of this experience, he's so excited about visiting the pool and the water park here everyday.
The other event he really enjoyed was a few trips to the local fire stations. We counted three within a 10 mile radius and made sure to visit every one. He was treated like a star, getting fire hats, pencils, coloring books, and we even made sure to buy him a genuine "Junior Fireman" shirt!
Little Man is already asking to go back. Sticks both thumbs up in the air and says, "Florida beach!" I have a feeling we'll be going back to this location again in the future, especially when we really need a little R&R.
