Lunch at Ford’s Garage and Dinner on the Lanai (Florida Day 1)

Lunch at Ford’s Garage and Dinner on the Lanai (Florida Day 1)

Who’s ready to hear about our trip to Florida two months ago??!! LOL.  I made and posted this video of our trip  when we came home but I never posted any pictures and I haven’t written anything about it until now.  I’ve got a lot of catching up to do!  I apologize that this is a breakfast-to-bed type of post.  This is more for my benefit at this point 😉

We arrived into Fort Myers late on a Thursday night and spent a few hours relaxing and catching up with my parents.  The kids and I sure have missed them. They built a house in Bonita Springs and moved there in November 2015.  They live there 7 months of the year and come back to MN for the summer.  Grandma and Bretton (aka Dash) are dressed like twinsies!! lol

The first real day that we were there was spent shopping and eating 😉  None of us had sandals so we went to Beall’s and went on a mini-shopping spree.  We got a bunch of good stuff! Later we all went to the Miromar Outlets and had lunch at Ford’s Garage.

The boys loved the little pond that had a ton of turtles and koi

This place is pretty cool!

A whole wall of beer taps!

Check out the sinks in the bathroom!! Have you ever seen anything like that?

Ford’s is known for their giant burgers. Yum. They brand their buns at Ford’s!

This green, tropical drink was fruity and delicious.  Very refreshing! I think it was probably called Antifreeze but I might have made that up! LOL

After lunch we ran to Winn Dixie to grab a few things. Bashy insisted on wearing his shades. LOL. He’s wearing his Darth Vader “You Don’t Wanna See My Dark Side” shirt.  No kidding.  This kid has a Temper!! We drove around for awhile until he fell asleep.  That’s how we roll 😉

Later that day we hung out on the Lanai at my parents’ house.  It is so peaceful hanging on the lanai, enjoying happy hour.  I’m not a big drinker but while on vacation, why not?! The following day I saw an alligator swimming across this pond in their backyard!!

The kids can’t get enough of Grandma 😉 

We  had pizza for dinner, followed by a fire in the fancy fire-pit-table.  More snuggles with Grandma 😉

Ahhh, recounting our trip has me yearning to go back.  Thank goodness my folks come back to MN next week and will be staying for the summer! 

I have a few more days worth of Florida pictures to blog about and will be posting those soon 😉
