Florida Everglades

 
 One of the days we were in Florida we decided to take an airboat ride.  Not the typical "kid" thing to do but, after we got going Aubree decided it was a lot of fun.... so did Nana and Papa.  This is a boat like the one we took our ride on.....


 
 
We got lucky (or at least I thought so)  we saw a Gator in the wild.  The driver said it was probably 8-10 long......Pretty cool huh???
  

In another spot we also saw a couple of baby gators...aren't they cute?  
 
 
More Florida wildlife????? well, I guess so.  As we were going through the reeds and grass we came across a cow.  This was shortly after we saw that big gator.  Everyone was asking, "Don't the gator's eat them?"  The driver said the gators leave them alone because they are too big.  They only go after something that large in the movies.  That cow was pretty boney though.  I think the gator passed him up just because there wasn't much meat on his bones.  There was a ranch along this body of water and he said cows wandered into the water all the time and ate the grass..
 

And here is our little gator.  (The one on the right....)  She said to me "Hey Nana, take my picture."  I turned around and she was on the floor with him....Goofy kid.  I have only been home a couple of days and haven't seen her since Friday.  I already miss her so much....and she only lives next door.
