Last bit of Florida

Yay! I finally have the internet on at my new house. Hopefully I can get caught up on blogging now.
We moved to our new house last Monday, got painting, and unpacking and it's kinda starting to feel like home. Don't worry, I'll be putting pics up.
But for now here's the last of the Florida trip.
Family picnic on the beach! Tim and I made Thai food for everyone.

So one night Tim and I were down at the beach, it was very dark, the tide was way out and I was walking in the shallow pools. Tim has this thing with walking in water when he can't see exactly what's under it and so he was walking on the sand. I pulled on his arm and told him he should come out and wade with me and that there was nothing to worry about. He reluctantly gave in, to please me. We were standing there, looking out towards the waves we could hear but couldn't really see, I was holding his arm with my head on his shoulder. All the sudden I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It was something big swimming about 20 feet from us. I thought I was just seeing things, but I realized Tim had seen it too. We both looked back, straining our eyes to make sure we were seeing what we thought we were seeing. I said, "haha, hey you see that? it kinda looks like a shark". As soon as the words left my mouth we both realized it indeed was a shark. We both ran on water back to the sand. I wish I had it on video, I'm pretty sure it looked funny to say the least. So much for my reassuring words.
Here's the shark we saw.


  1. Nothing to worry about if you can run fast!
    I'm glad nothing happened to you.
    Tim will remember that! and he will be cautious in the future too....your special splashing in the pools of water is gonna have to have chlorine in it and be at the hotel!

  2. Agh, c'mon dad!

  3. Oh that fluffy leetle birdy face! *consoles self* I will have him in my arms soon...
    Delightful post (except for that evil bit at the end...I'm going to have nightmares -
    why oh *why* did I click on that link!). Praise be that there are no sharks in MI. =P

  4. Wow! How cool (but scary ;) that you saw a shark! Love all your pics :)
