Right after Christmas, we re-packed our bags and headed south for Florida for Kathryn and Keenan's wedding! We met mom and Les in Dallas on Dec. 30 and flew out of Love Field the next morning! It was Crockett's 1st BIG trip... so I was a little nervous to see what kind of traveler I had on my hands. (We all know how much he loves the car! HA!) He was AWESOME! AND, we ended up being in the air for about 2 hours longer than expected due to lots and lots of fog in Houston and the runway lights had gone out. So after circling Houston for about an hour, we were diverted to San Antonio to re-fuel THEN sent back to Houston! From there we flew on to Ft. Lauderdale. Another two hours later and we were in Islamorada, FL... FINALLY! Due to the delay, we were a little late to the rehearsal dinner. It was so great to finally be there and see everyone! We all celebrated New Year (a little early... maybe 9:00 p.m. :) and caught up with everyone under the Blue Moon... it was beautiful! On the morning of the 1st, mom and I had a bridal breakfast for Kathryn and her special people. It was very nice and we all had a great time celebrating her big day. The wedding began at 3 p.m. on the beach at the resort we stayed at. It was so nice and such a sweet, touching ceremony. The weather was beautiful for the wedding but about two hours later the rain came.... it poured! Luckily, we were all under the patio. But after it stopped there was the most beautiful rainbow (and awesome photo op!). It must have been a sign from up above :) We had such a nice dinner and we danced and chatted the night away... Crockett had a great time, but was pooped by the end! He took a short nap during the reception, but woke up for cake!! It was such a wonderful, beautiful, fun, lovely wedding and we were so glad we were able to be a part of it!!! Congrats to Keenan and Kathryn Taylor :)

The next day, we headed even further South to Key West. It was about a 2 hour drive, but a very pretty, scenic one! We had a great lunch of salad, pina coladas, lobster and key lime pie... mmmmm! Then we walked around and shopped a little bit. It was a little chilly for Crockett so we didn't stay a REAL long time. Before we left Key West, I wanted to take a family picture of the 'Southern Most Point of the U.S.' Little did I know that so did everyone else, and there would be a LONG line.... But we waited and made it to the front :) We even saw a lady there walking her miniature horse... just like it was a dog. It was funny and SO SO cute!!

The next day, we drove back to Ft. Lauderdale, but first, we stopped at the Everglades. Chris and I got to take a ride on an airboat and look for some alligators!! It was so much fun (not to mention cold!)!! We saw some really cool birds (blue heron, vultures... I forget what the other ones were called, but they were cute! Our guide even had 2 that knew their names :), some raccoons, and an alligator that got VERY close to us! I wanted to see more, but he said it was a little too cold that day for many of the animals to be out and about. It was so neat!

We had such a great time in Florida! It was nice to get away for a while to a place with no snow :) Crockett was such a trooper... It was great to have LuLu and Les there to help us with him and he loved getting to hang out with them too! Where are we going next?!?! :)
