The Sunshine State?

We have been in Ft. Lauderdale Florida since Monday. Tom had a big conference to attend here and we thought it would be a nice opportunity for a get away. Unfortunately we came during a rainy week. We haven’t had too much time in the sun and that STINKS! How is this called the sunshine state after this week lol? We have one more full day here and it’s the only “partly cloudy” day in the forecast. I hope we can soak up some sun tomorrow, but we will see. Yesterday we were on the beach with black clouds and rain……. That didn’t stop us from sitting in the sand and making sand castles. Audrey Godzilla had a lot of fun putting us to work and then smashing it. Last summer we took Audrey to Mexico and she was not a fan of the beach. This time she LOVES it! She asks every day if we can go to the beach and it makes me mad that it’s RAINING! She finally wants to go play at the beach and it rains every day. Too bad. I’m still so happy we live in Texas where we are a drive away from water. I want to plan a trip this summer to South Padre Island to participate in the sea turtle release. This is something I’ve wanted to do for years and I am just giddy that we can do it in our own backyard YAY!
