Fun in the Sun

Dustin and I went to Orlando, Florida last week because he competed in a wastewater treatment competition. They qualified here in Utah to go to Nationals even though it was Utah State's first year competing. They did such a good job in Orlando! (I got to go watch). It was very interesting believe it or not, and it made me even more proud of him. He's so smart! :) We got to stay in this sweet condo place. It was super nice. Oh, I have to tell this one story. While we were driving to our condo, I saw an armadillo crossing the road. No, not a skunk, an armadillo! Crazy. Anyway, since we were in Orlando (and it's hurricane season) we went on a cruise as well. We rented a car and drove to Miami. We left from there and went to Key West and Cozumel. It was tons of fun, and nice to be in the sun. Here are a few pictures. This is when we are leaving Miami.

Our ship. Imagination!

Here we are in Cozumel.

Storm? What storm is coming? It poured on us! I doesn't rain like that in Logan. It rained HARD for about an hour, maybe? Then the sun came back out and we went back out to enjoy it.

Here is the deck on our boat. We had such a good time!

So Friday, we got back to Miami at like 8:00 in the morning, but our flight wasn't until 6:00 at night, so we went on a tour of the Everglades. It was so cool! We saw alligators, crocodiles, turtles, fish, birds...good times.

Here's the fan boat we went on. That thing can turn on the water. It was awesome.

So we sat down on the boat and felt a couple rain drops. We took off, got poured on for about one minute, but it did enough. Dustin doesn't even look wet. How lucky to be a guy.

Here's an alligator.

No, we didn't forget about Macie. She stayed in Bancroft with Dustin's mom. I missed her so much, but she had such a good time! What a lucky little girl. How cute is she? :)
