Great Weekend!

Well we made it back home yesterday afternoon and let me tell you I had a blast! :)

We got to Fort Lauderdale at around 10:15 Saturday morning. Luckily when we got to the hotel and told them we were there they had our room all ready (normally check-in isn't till 3!) so we were able to put all our stuff in the room and head straight for the beach!
Here is a picture of the lobby

Karen and I spent most of Saturday on the beach while the guys walked up and down A1A in search of rum runners! I was hell bent on getting color but NOT turning into a lobster so I applied SPF 50 like a mad woman every 45 min and I did a pretty good job because I am only pink in a few spots where I missed on accident and the best part was I didn't need my 02 while I was on the beach so I have no oxygen marks on my face..WOO HOO!! :)

Around 3:00 it started to rain so Karen and I were forced inside by mother nature. It was ok cause we were a little hungry anyway so we went to the poolside restaurant for a quick bite then headed to our room to get ready to go out that night.

For dinner the 4 of us went to Lulu's Bait Shack. It was SO good...I think I had the best fish and chips I have ever had there. Danny and Curt both had rum runners (again) and Karen and I shared a Fish Bowl full of Tropical was VERY good! :)

After dinner we walked up and down the strip looking at different tattoo shops but didn't get anything. Karen wasn't feeling that great so we went back to the room by 11:30. That's right...for once I wanted to stay out and someone else wasn't feeling good! oh well.

Sunday morning we got up and I ate a humongous breakfast at Denny's and then we headed back home stopping at a few places to sight see on the way.

All in all it was a quick but fun trip and I am glad we went. Its not very often I feel great so when I do its nice to be able to enjoy myself and have fun. Next weekend is 4th of July so I am hoping I can continue feeling good so I can enjoy fireworks with everybody downtown!
