Our first week in Florida was fantastic. My entire family stayed in a house together. But unfortunately my brother, sister and my brother's girlfriend had to go home. They have jobs or something. So they all flew home and we stayed with my parents for an additional 4 days. Which was good, because to have 4 days of driving for a week in Florida is crazy.
We spent the next 4 days in Treasure Island on the Gulf of Mexico. We thought we would have a beach vacation. Well we only spent a couple of hours at the beach because it wasn't exactly beach weather, but we still had a great time.
We also went into the Tampa Electric Manatee Viewing Centre for a few hours where we saw manatees. Manatees are not the most exciting of creatures. They are called sea cows for a reason. But once again, seeing a creature like this in their natural habitat was pretty neat. Plus, it was free.
We had some great meals in Treasure Island and John's Pass. Nothing like authentic seafood restaurants when you are on vacation!

It was a great trip and I can't wait for many more to come with my little family!
