For the first installment in my series of posts about our wonderful week long vacation in Florida I thought I would show you these gorgeous photos of a walk we took around the neighborhood where we were staying in Tampa. My mother-in-law’s sisters and their husbands live there, on the water, in a gorgeous house in a fabulous neighborhood. We always have such a fun time visiting them and now that all three of the kids are older, out of diapers, and deal better with long car rides, maybe we’ll visit more often. In Florida it’s not uncommon to find various fruits growing on your property. A lot of the fruit trees in the neighborhood where we were staying are dying or on lots where the houses are now vacant. Picking the fruit was totally fine and encouraged! We brought home ten lemons and 8ish grapefruits! What a healthy organic food goldmine! I loved that the kids had a chance to see how these foods are grown up close and personal.
