Florida Trip part 5: finishing off our trip

There is a little nature preserve right around the corner from Buzz and Susan's house called Castaway Island, and we usually stop by there and walk around on the different trails.
We decided to visit the day before we left. The mosquitoes were out of control so I ended up leaving early with Chase.

At the preserve there is a boat launch area. At low tide you can see all kinds of little creatures including fiddler crabs, it's really interesting.

That night we visited the beach one last time.

The kids did great on the plane ride home.
Chase did have a blowout on our second flight--
luckily we had a change of clothes in our bag ready to go,
and we changed him right there in our seats.
We had an entire row plus a seat across the aisle
so it all worked out OK.

Hello Utah!

So many cute pictures from your trip! I love that you did the whole trip in 5 segments. Very smart! Looks like you guys had tons of fun! We'll have to go visit Florida sometime too!
