My first trip to Florida was when I was 14 and we took a family trip to Disney, one of the worst trips ever due to the intense humidity and my disdain for amusement parks. Since then, I’ve been back to the Sunshine State quite a few times to visit Brian’s grandparents who have a condo outside of Tampa and on father-daughter trips to the lovely seaside community of Longboat Key. Brian and I have also spent some time in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Everglades National Park.

The first row of photos are from a father-daughter trip to Longboat Key in March of 2008, the second row is from a trip Brian and I took to Fort Lauderdale and Everglades National Park in October of 2008 and the last row is from a lovely visit to Brian’s grandparents’ condo in 2009.
