First I spent a few days with sister-in-law Kathy in Kissimee. We went to a few shops, visited with her friends John and Lee, and went to Cyprus Gardens. The weather was gorgeous, not hot, but just right. Cyprus Gardens is a quiet, slow-paced spot. Children and husbands might find it less than exciting, but we had fun.
The Christmas season is big at Cyprus Gardens. We were there right after that when there weren't many people, making it a nice, relaxed day.
Giant Topiaries were really a amazing.
Working on the snail
My favorite, the Cardinal made out of red begonias.
Here you can see the scale and appreciate how large the topiaries are.
Kathy doesn't know I took this one! She'll probably kill me.
Neither of us really loved the reptile show. Eeeeeyoooooo.
After I left Kathy's I spent a few days with my Dad and Inez in Naples. We celebrated Inez's birthday while I was there. And she and I did a lot of shopping. I spent some time on the lanai near their pool. It was a little chilly, though, so I didn't really have a chance to get a tan or take a dip. We had a nice visit but I took almost no pictures, although I do have a video of Dad and Inez that I will post on another blog in the future.
She is 6 months old and she is a doll...a drooly little doll, since she is teething. She has the sweetest disposition and although I don't have a picture of it, she and Tia Abuela Suzie spent a long time cuddling. I instantly fell in love.
I am including a video we took of Angelina, which is why I didn't post the video I have of Dad. I can only put one video on per blog, I think. Sorry, Dad. Your movie debut will have to wait a little while longer.
