Okay so not really, but.... we did go to see Shamu and then an exhibit at The Gaylord Palms in Orlando called ICE. The event was really talked about and we went, it was neat but highly overrated and priced. TJ has been such a trooper on our vacation. We left on Friday, November the 17th and drove to Kissimmee FL and spent 5 days going to Sea World, Downtown Disney, and ICE exhibit. We also went to the Luau one night at Sea World. TJ's favorite part was the drums and fire dancers. Tyler's favorite part was the coconut bras.. Ha ha ha ha!!!! Then we drove to Key West, FL to see the new baby... Baby Andrew Thomas Franklin who is such a cutie, he will really melt your heart. Then after only a short 2 day stint in Key West we drove to Tampa and dropped off Nana Smith and then headed to New Port Richey, FL which is only 40 minutes from Tampa. Monday we went to the Lowry Park Zoo, one of Tyler Sr.'s favorite places as a kid. TJ loved it. He got to see a 1 month old Elephant. He also got an upclose and personal view of a giraffe. He was happy as a clam. Then we have just spent the rest of the time hangin' out with Mama Bear and Papa Bear. I think we are leaving in the morning (Friday Dec 1st). Can you believe it is already Dec. Tyler and I are so excited about getting back home and then turning around to travel again to see all of you. We really missed you guys at Thanksgiving, but I was snuggling with my newest nephew. Sooooo.... I can't complain. We love you all so much.
