What a great time, I really fell in love with the Keys!  It's a totally, different world down there...feels like the islands but also very american, of course.  We drove in early Friday morning after a quick stop the night before in the sweet 1 bedroom apartment in Key Largo.  Put the kids to bed at 7pm (whoo hoo) and enjoyed Hornsbys and roasted chicken on the balcony, staring at stars, palm trees, water and boats!  It was so cool, we could even hear Jack Johnson's music floating down the water....awesome.
When we got into the Keys, Owen went straight to work and I took the kids to Duval St!  We went to the aquarium and took a little walk around.  Then, that night is was an awesome time with Covenant Word Church!  Owen did a men's breakfast, Saturday while I swam with the kids and than that afternoon we played with the kids and I taught at a Ladies meeting!  It was so precious, we focused all weekend long on the cross.  My most favorite subject right now!!!
Then Sunday, of course, church...we headed back to Duval St. for the evening and had gigantic cookie monster ice-creams...so yummy!
On Monday, we were so bummed to leave but as we pulled into Marathon I had the brilliant idea of visiting the Dolphin Research Center.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos but it was so awesome, 6 feet or so from 19 dolphins, 3 babies!  I so loved it.  I took little mini-videos with my cam phone that I will upload, I could have stayed all day but we had to get to VA Beach my Tuesday night!
So, I must admit, my least fave part of the trip so far was the drive from KEY WEST to VIRGINIA BEACH.  2 days of driving, 9 hours on Monday and 12 hours on Tuesday.  Plus, yesterday we got on the road at 5:30am but didn't get here til 11:15 last night...it was a long day but now we are planted for 5 days and next week we head to DC for a week!
That's it for now....
