Fun in Tampa
We had the great opportunity to go down to Tampa to visit with Chris' brother, Todd, sister-in-law, Anita, and nephew, Martin. We hadn't been able to see them since we got married nearly 4 years ago, so we were very excited to spend some time with them, and introduce them to our little Grant. We had so much fun! We spent some time with them in their home, just hanging out, and then we went out for lunch to a wonderful Mexican Restaurant and to the Florida Aquarium. The aquarium was great - Grant loved it, and I think that Martin did, too. We had the hardest time finding the aquarium, but once we finally did, it was well worth the struggle! Unfortunately, we only got to spend a short time with them, and then we had to drive clear over to Melbourne where Chris' parents have a place to pick up Emma Lou so that Grant and I could come home this week. Chris actually got sick and so we spent the day inside. Luckily, he felt much better the next day, just in time to go to work. We actually left Grant there overnight. Chris' parents came up to Jacksonville on Tuesday morning to drive back to VA with me, so they had some time with Grant by themselves, and Chris and I had a day to ourselves, too, which was nice. After a long drive home, we are getting settled in, and preparing for Chris to come home tomorrow. We're so excited to finally be here together for a while. Chris hasn't been home for any decent amount of time since last February, so we're definitely ready for this!
