We can't celebrate Valentines day ON Valentines Day because my poor hubby has to work...so we have to make arrangements to do something a different day.
This year, Jason really wanted to go for a long bike ride, so we choose to have our date at Shark Valley Nature Preserve in the Everglades National Forest because they have a 15-mile bike loop.
We were really excited...and we had a GREAT time. No...an AMAZING time. I honestly can't remember when I had that much fun.
Well...I can...but it was awhile ago, okay?
Here are some of the highlights of our adventure:
|This is the very first gator we saw on our ride...there were many, many more...|
|This is a cool pic...these giant clover-type flowers were blooming and the insects were going CRAZY...bumble bees and butterflys were highly attracted to them...|
|This was our beautiful surroundings...|
|I love my own scenery ;)|
|Ugh...I really DO want to take good pictures...I always look chubby and goofy...|
|A big, beautiful Great Blue Heron|
|This was SUPER cool...we happened upon a clutch of newly hatched alligators. We stayed back from the SUPER aggressive momma...but got some pics of the babies!!|
|The view from the Observation Tower|
|A Rosette Spoonbill...I've never seen one before!!|
|So...we WERE gonna take a short excursion hike, buuttttt...|
I love my husband...he's the greatest guy in the world. He really has his hands full with me...yet he sticks around...and makes me happy...
You make everyday like Valentines Day, baby...
