Florida Fun

2 Mar

I am having a wonderful time in Florida with my family.  They picked me up after a pretty good flight on Friday night, and I went home to a comfortable night’s sleep.

Saturday morning we got up, made a fantastic breakfast with turkey bacon and eggs, and headed out.  We went to Mazzaro’s Italian Market and it was AWESOME.  The wine room was amazing, the cheese selection was fantastic, and we had a delicious lunch with awesome fresh sandwiches and a beautiful environment.  We also brought home fresh pasta and pastries.  After dropping off our goodies at home, we headed back out to the Fine Arts Museum.  It was small but absolutely beautiful with a great collection.  In the gift shop I found the Greatest. Sounvenir. Ever……

That’s right, String Spartacus, or Stringacus for short.  After the museum, we went down to the pier and checked out an awesome wine shop.  We did a wine tasting, bought an awesome Blueberry Pinot Noir made at a local winery, and I also finally got a cute wine stopper for home.  I picked up some key lime and orange flavored coconut dipped in dark chocolate to bring home for Aaron.

Last night we had a birthday party for me.  My aunt and cousin came over, we had awesome Italian cream cake, and drank LOTS of wine!  It was a lot of fun, and we had great grilled hamburgers thanks to my Daddy.

Today we’re having brunch with another cousin and her family, and then doing some sightseeing before having dinner out near the beach somewhere nearby.  I’ll upload my millions of pictures (lots of pelicans…) as soon as I get home. 

I cannot tell you how therapeutic it is to be here with my Mommy, who came in this morning and laid in bed with me for an hour while we talked about anything and everything.  It was good for my heart.

    A string Spartacus may just be the coolest thing ever.

    I want a String Spartacus too. They look awesome! There’s nothing quite as a therapeutic as a good Mom is there?

    I’m glad you’re having a good time down there and Happy Birthday too!
