I Just Flew in from Florida (and boy are my arms tired)

Tim and I got home around 11:30 last night and I went straight to bed. Roscoe was ecstatic to see us and kept me up all night head butting, licking, and crying. For a cat who already has abandonment issues, he was pretty traumatized after being left for 5 days. Poor lonely Roscoe.

I had a great weekend. Like I already said, Tim's family was more than welcoming and wonderful. I just hope they liked me too!

Tim's dad and step-mom weren't the only people we visited in Spring Hill, Florida. The dogs Luke and Lydia proved that I don't really hate all dogs after all.

Tim kept his promise to me and we went to the beach. It was just a small beach near Spring Hill and the water wasn't even up to my knees as far as we could go. But we were in Florida, on the Gulf, and having a great time. We tried to go to the more commercial beach on Monday, but we couldn't even get close due to the holiday. Instead, we had a great lunch on the shore and Marilyn and I hit a few shops while the men preferred to stay in the car.

After whining all morning about the sand, Tim deliriously sat on the styrofoam cooler. This is the aftermath.

On Tuesday before we left, Tim and I took the car and went to Weeki Wachi Springs. It's a natural spring that they built a water park around. Tim and I went down some water slides, splashed in the spring, and hung out in the sun.

Other than that, we pretty much just hung out. We did a little shopping and played pinochle. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

Man, my arms would be tired too if I flew all that way. (Mom didn't understand the joke until I explined it to her. lol) I'm glad you had a lot of fun, and you look great! I still hate dogs. I get to see you in 15 days!!!! Tell Tim I said hello. I love you!

The one time I was in the Gulf, I got to see a stingray and a horseshoe crab. The water didn't go past my knees there either. Good story!
