Visiting Legoland FL – Our Traveling Tribe

We just finished up a lovely visit to Florida.  So far, it’s been the only ‘hot’ weather we have had!  So we took advantage of it! We spent a week near Orlando; a few days were chilly and rainy, but we did manage to spend 2 days in the pool… We took advantage of every […]

CRU & The Jesus Film… (Orlando, FL)…

After our fantastic program at Wycliffe Bible Translators, we went ‘next door’ (as the crow flies, but about a mile drive), to the CRU headquarters.  CRU stands for Campus Crusade for Christ International… CRU is the force behind The Jesus Film Project.  The Jesus film is a 2 hour dramatization of the biblical account of […]

Wycliffe Bible Translators Discovery Center, Orlando, FL…

We’ve been in Florida for 2 weeks now, and for the most part we’ve been taking it easy.  Really easy.  Just soaking up this warm Florida sunshine for the 2 weeks of ‘snowbirding’ that we will get this winter – it has been cold everywhere else, ever since we left Montana. BUT, we did go […]

Pensacola Naval Air Station – Home of the Blue Angels, FL…

Our next stop was at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida.  We have been here before, nearly 2 years ago, but this free museum is worth a second (or third) visit! The museum is on a base, and is easy to find. The National Naval Aviation Museum is the largest naval air museum […]

Fort Matanzas National Monument, FL…

After spending Sunday and Monday on Canaveral National Seashore, we boondocked Monday night at the Cracker Barrel in Palm Coast, FL.  Vaughn and I went across the parking lot for a dinner date, while the kids stayed ‘home’ (in the parking lot) having Cup of  Noodles (which they love and I think are gross…), and watching […]

Canaveral Seashore – day 2 ;) – in pics…

On Monday, we went back to Canaveral National Seashore, but this time to the north entrance.  We took the 5er, and found a place to park it in one of the first parking lots (don’t try this when it’s busy!); we then hit the boardwalk…for the beach, where finding our bare feet is the first thing that we […]

Canaveral National Seashore…

After we left Orlando on Sunday, we didn’t go far!  We drove over to the Canaveral National Seashore, just east of Orlando.  While the weather wasn’t ideal for traveling, we had maxed out our 2 weeks at Orlando, and we needed to move on.  I really should have gone to the office and paid for […]

Big Cypress Canoe Tour…

On Friday, while we had been in the Everglades, a ranger from Big Cypress called Vaughn to confirm their reservations on the park hosted canoe tour scheduled for Sunday.   The ranger said that there had been a cancellation, and that Vaughn was welcome to bring the other kids, even tho one canoe would have kids […]

Visiting Biscayne National Park & The Keys…

During our visit to Big Cypress, we took a day and drove out to the east coast to visit Biscayne National Park.Biscayne National Park is a unique National Park in that it is 95% under water!  Located just south of Miami, this park offers great snorkeling and diving opportunities.  Of course, being boatless, we just […]

Midway Campground in Big Cypress NRA!!! …

We loved our time in Big Cypress!!!  We are already talking about coming back next year – and planning our stay at the Midway campground!  ~Course, I already have big guys planning on a 9 day back-swamp canoe trip then too – where they will have to haul all their water and food, sleep on chickees (platforms […]
