Hi from sunny/not sunny Florida!!

For our 10 year anniversary back in October, my MIL offered us her time share for a week.

She picked a place in Ft Lauderdale and we arrived Friday the 08th for a week in the sun/not sun.
Apparently Florida is having record breaking cold temperatures.
Don't laugh-- I know there is not snow here like back home, but there has been snow in Florida, orange crops are freezing and iguanas are falling out of trees (They are cold blooded ad when there is a cold snap they fall right out of the trees).

Monday morning it was colder in Miami in the morning than Juneau Alaksa--no joke!

So, the first full day here it was cold and rainy. We managed to get to town to buy groceries right before the rains hit.

Andrew looked at maps and travel guides and figured out if we took the trolley--we could get to the grocery store easily, and for 50cents.

We had a nice big walk before finally hailing a trolley--took some pictures on the way.

A pink house for Brenna:

(these signs make me laugh)

The grocery store:

(We took this picture for the kids too--they LOVE the movie "Because of Winn Dixie"

We had a great lunch at a seafood place (Clam Chowder and Clam Fritters for me, burger for hubby)...and came back.

We got to do a video chat via skype with the kids and family who were visiting with Hubby's brother and wife in Toronto.

We also had our first hotel/microwave cooked meal:

Not bad!
