We had a blast. I have quite a few pictures to share. It felt so good to be warm. We came back to an Arctic freeze! The high temp. yesterday was below zero and today I think it reached 3 degrees.

Here is Sonel seeing if he could ride his bike. I bought this for him when he first got here, but his feet couldn't reach the pedals the whole summer. He has grown so much, he didn't have a problem at all riding it now. So we packed it up with our bikes, for Florida.

This is Sonel showing off his blue tongue while we were driving.

Sonel didn't like driving so much. After we got back into the truck after a rest stop, he started bawling so hard he couldn't speak. I kept asking him what was wrong, I thought he was hurt. Finally he got out the words "Florida's so far".

This is my sister, Debbie, and Sonel feeding a white peacock. A lady was telling me that they walk around in the trailer park all the time. Sonel was brave and feed it from his hand. After I took this picture, the thing tried to attack him. It jumped at him with it's spurs (like a rooster) and my sister screamed and we all took off. Sonel calmly said "That's not good". We laughed so hard as we were running from the thing.

This was at Clearwater Beach.

Getting ready for swimming!

Sonel just got splashed in the face by a wave.

I think I know why there was sand in every part of the camper...

Hope looks like she is levitating!

This was Sunshine Skyway Bridge. We went over this several times.
This angle makes it look freaky.

Hope and Sonel's "SAND CAR". My sister and I created this beauty.

My cuties.

This was our last sunset before we left.

I appreciate every one's prayers for Sonel's life. I rest assured that his life is in God's hands.

I love the pictures! I can't believe I haven't looked at any of them yet. That's a funny picture of Sonel crying. A common sight :)
It's so pretty there. I can't wait wait to go to SC!
