I thought this turned out to be an interesting shot from Gatorland in Florida. I had lived in Florida for 25 years and never made it to this popular attraction until right before we moved to Finland. My family and I had a lot of fun!
Four scary prehistoric looking gators piled on top of each other with this beautiful white crane just taking a nice leisurely stroll in the water right behind them…

Christmas morning ~ 2012
We are slowly working on our Central Florida bucket list before our move to Finland this summer! Danny and I have both lived in the Central Florida area for about 25 years and we wanted to make sure that we visited a few places that we have never made it to in the area. One of the places that all three of us had never been to was Gatorland. We were very surprised at how much we enjoyed the park and really wished that we had visited sooner. Mia was thrilled to see all of the gators, crocs, and wildlife at the park! Mia had never been to Kennedy Space Center and her daddy had to attend a meeting there, so it was great that she was able to experience it. We also made a trip out to the House of Blues this past week and had a great time at their Gospel Brunch. We really enjoyed all of the yummy southern food!
We had a great time spending time with our friends and families this past week. 2013 is going to be a big year for us with many changes and lots of new challenges to overcome. Danny and I are both grateful to have each other and our amazing daughter to experience it all with. We will be together 17 years next month and it is truly amazing all that we have been through and all of the wonderful places and people that we have met over the years! We wish everyone a great 2013! ♥
Being brave at gatorland… What an exciting experience!
