Florida Fun

I'm sorry I have taken so long to tell you about my trip to Florida. I have been running around like a mad woman trying to catch up on things I missed & trying to meet up with friends who are on Spring break.

First off, I want to start by saying what a wonderful trip it was. The drive down wasn't so bad. We ended up leaving at midnight on Friday & made it to Anthony's grandparents' house at 4 that afternoon. Anthony drove from home until Georgia & then I took over & drove the rest of the way. What an experience that is trying to drive on a highway with 4 lanes surrounding you & the crazy Florida drivers as well.

When we first made it, his grandparents took us out to a restaurant called Marsh Landing. It was a cute little restaurant where they gave you your drinks in a mason jar [I thought that was adorable]. For an appetizer, we got Gator Tail. I was a little leary at first but I always try something before I say I don't like it. Surprisingly, it was delicious [& tasted just like chicken lol]. For dinner, I got this really good burger that had bleu cheese on top. Anthony got... okay prepare yourself for this... FROG LEGS! Ugh, looking at them gave me the chills. They left their toes on so there's these little froggy toes dangling & ugh okay I'm done lol But like I said, I try something before I say I don't like so... I tried it & they weren't too bad [tasted like chicken again lol]. You can visit Marsh Landing's website by clicking here.

Saturday, Anthony's grandparent's told him about this track that is about 15 minutes from their house so we decided to check it out. It was a pretty cool track & I got some pictures :)

When we got back his Grammie made Steak Hoagies for dinner.

Sunday, we just hung out at the house & Anthony showed me around the neighborhood [or maybe that was Saturday, I can't remember lol]. Nothing too exciting happened that day. For dinner his Grammie made "Sewer Pipes" [I know, weird name, but that's what the family calls them so I'll just go along with it haha]. It's basically just noodles & meat sauce.

Monday, Anthony wanted to go to this track called Pax Trax. I really liked this track because there was a lookout tower you could stand on & the way the jump was, it looked like Anthony was jumping right at me. They also have video cameras at this track so my parents could actually go to Pax Trax's website & watch Anthony ride. You can go to their website by clicking here.

When we got back, his Pap said he was taking us out to dinner since his Grammie has darts on Monday night. He took us to this restaurant called Vic's Pizza Italian Restaurant. When you go inside, it makes you feel like you're actually in Italy because of all the murals on the wall. We got a white pizza & it was really good! It's not like a white pizza you would get at like Pizza Hut or something. This was made with fresh garlic, ricotta & mozzarella cheese, salt & pepper, oregano & parmesan. You can check out their website by clicking here. After dinner, his Pap took us to this little ice cream shop called Paradise Ice Cream. He swore up & down that they had the best Banana Splits & boy was he right! These suckers were huge.

So I just realized this post is going to be 147520347 pages long if I don't stop now! So, I'm going to tell you about the rest of my trip in another post!

Stay tuned for more ;)
