Okeechobee living

After St. Augustine, we headed south once again to Lake Okeechobee.  Mom Mom and Pop Pop were there to welcome us to a week of relaxing and fun family time!

Mom Mom didn't wait long to get her hands on Henry!

Of course, Daddy was in great demand as well!  Even little Maggie dog was snuggling!

All set for his first boat ride!

Of course, the wildlife is amazing there

 We headed down to the dock on the lake to check out what was going on and try and spot some gators. We didn't see any, but we did see some airboats, always fun to watch!

While we were in Florida this time we saw the Tropicana juice factory and the Nature's Own!
 We decided to head out to the Okeechobee airport for lunch at the Landing Strip Cafe one afternoon, where the planes are the entertainment and the food is yummy!

We saw several planes land and take off
