After the wedding we were off to our honeymoon. We spent the night at in Tampa at the Marriott Waterside.
The next day we were on our way to Weston, Florida… just outside of Ft. Lauderdale. We stopped on Alligator Alley along the way and got that picture with an alligator in the background on the left.
On Tuesday we tried to go to Ft. Lauderdale beach, but just as we got out of the car the beach was closed for lightning and a storm rolled in. By the time we drove back to our hotel the storm was over, so we hung out by the pool.
That night Chris took me to the Cheesecake Factory at Sawgrass Mills; I had never been to one before!
The next day we went to South Beach, Miami. Again, it began storming on our way down, but that didn’t stop us from getting a few pictures on the beach! On the way back to Weston, it cleared up and we stopped at the Riverwalk in Ft. Lauderdale.
Our favorite adventure on the trip was our day in the Everglades. We got to hold this awesome little Gator and go on an air boat tour.
The air boat ride was really fun and we got to see about 6 alligators, several of which swam right up to the boat!
On our one week anniversary we went to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. There were some funny little fish in that tank beside us that kept us entertained.
The next day we headed back to New Port Richey for a couple weeks to tie up some loose ends and get ready to move to Kansas!
