Christmas in the Keys

I'm telling ya, there is nothing like Christmas in Florida.  Especially when you live in the snow.  Trading in snow boots for flip flops, cold weather for warm, and cloudy days for sunny blue skies is probably the most refreshing thing I've ever experienced.  This Christmas we were blessed with the opportunity to visit Hank's family down in the Keys.  Here are some pics from our tropical adventure.  Check out this link to see all the awesome things the Florida Keys have to offer:
Can you tell Hank's excited to see his family?

These guys are all over the place.  Very cool.

We got to visit the Dolphin Research Center.

Hank's awesome sister and brother in law.

Our amazing hosts:)

There were a lot of these beautiful man o' wars that had washed up on the beach in Marathon while we were there.  Hank took some pretty good pics.  There was this guy walking along and popping them with his bare feet!  You know you're a Floridian when...

I took this picture, and Lord only knows how...

  Happy New Year!  May 2012 be a year full of laughter, adventure, and a joyful knowledge of how massive Christ's love is for you.  Ephesians 3:14-19
