Fun with Rob

My brother in law Rob has been in town for the last month, and since he's headed back to the University in a few days (and Jason and I are headed to the Caribbean today) we have been having a blast cramming some last minute fun in.

Friday we headed to Wekiwa State Park to rent a canoe (Jason and I) and a kayak (Rob). We had a blast paddling around, trying to splash each other and we saw so much wildlife in the preserve. It was awesome - we had a blast! AND - I finally had my first wild gator sightings! They were little guys - 4-5 feet and snoozing on the banks in the sun. So cool!

Yesterday we spent the morning volunteering for the Society of Saint Andrew's (SOSA) annual backyard Citrus Harvest. Every year they harvest several tons of unwanted Citrus from local neighborhoods and groves. The citrus is then donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida who distributes the citrus to local shelters and families in need. Very cool. You can see one of the Citrus boxes below.

In the afternoon we stopped for lunch at Robs favorite establishment - Chik Fil A - and then headed for mini golf at Pirates Cove over by Disneyworld. Do you know what happens to those who lose at Pirate mini golf? They end up in the stocks!

Thanks for a great visit, Rob! Stay warm in Idaho! We are Caribbean bound for some sun, run and scuba! (Though not all together!)
