We were actually only 90 miles from Cuba. Crazy! We also got to ride jet skis around the whole island on a 2 1/2 hour tour it was beautiful. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures because our guide said that it would get wet. So I'm really sad that I don't have those pictures but we were at one point only 88 miles from Cuba when were were on the tour. Neat huh?
I never once thought I would ever be in Florida or even close to Cuba but I am so grateful for a spontaneous husband who wants to do all these things I never thought I would do. He is a wonderful husband and so fun. We love road trips and seeing new things. Thanks Babe for always planning fun and exciting trips for us. I love you....you are the best!!

I would like to say thank you to those who serve our country now and in the past and those who have died for it. I have a greater respect for those who serve and their families. It is tough and probably tougher than I can even imagine. I am so proud to know that I live in a free country where we believe and practice freedom and even with our problems we still find hope. I am so grateful for the courage in my own family with a brother that serves in the military and my father who is now running for the Arizona House of Representatives to make this country better. Thank you!
We are very sad to be leaving Florida. We have really enjoyed being in this beautiful place. We love the beach and also have enjoyed being all on our own. We will miss it here but we know we are making a great decision to go back to AZ. We will see everyone soon!!!
Yep we went up a little higher and closer to the bulls and saw what the flames were all about. PBR baby!!!

Kyle and I decided to take a road trip to San Francisco the end of February. We got there and it was raining so we decided to stay in the hotel and not get soaked. The next morning was our activity day and the rain had cleared and it was beautiful weather. First we walked around the ports found breakfast at a cute little cafe then started our adventure to Alcatraz.
Here is Alcatraz Island that we got to tour. It was amazing and kinda scary at some points.
(Below) Kyle is in the solitary cell. He looks scared huh?... He is listening to the tour and how they just closed the door and only let the prisoners out once a week to shower. Crazy!!
After Alcatraz we had a bite to eat and headed to the Aquarium of the Bay. Here is Kyle making friends with the star fish at the aquarim of the bay.
Super fun time at the aquarium. There was a place at the end that you could touch the sting rays and Kyle was having a blast. As for me, I was just fine taking the pictures.
And of course our trip would not be complete without the famous trolly car ride up and down the hills of San Francisco. They were so fun but stopped in the middle of the street and was kinda scary but still fun. We rode these to China town and to our night fun watching the play Wicked.
This was the highlight of my vacation. Kyle got us tickets to see Wicked at the theatre. It was so amazing and just as good if not better the second time around. I recommend it to anyone!!
Here are some pics from the dinner....
