All good things must come to an end, as did our fun-filled Florida vacation. We spent our last day in Naples, a place I could easily live! We started our day at The Naples Zoo.
For those who were on our trivia team last Fall, you know that this is considered to be the most poisonous animal on Earth. Glad he was glassed in!
We got there just in time for the lunch time feeding of the gators.
Here gator, gator.
Each of them had names and responded when called.
We learned a lot of cool stuff here from the alligator feeding team. Apparently gators can live as long as humans and can go have up to 1,000 teeth in their lifetime.
We read this sign to Blake, and he was on high alert for the rest of the day about getting anywhere near the plants.
Going on a little boat ride.
Our boat driver/tour guide pointed out that this animal is like King Julian from Madagascar, which really got our kids' attention.
We got to feed the giraffes!
It's fine. He's poisonous, but it's fine.
I consider it a major success that we walked out of this gift shop without buying anything.
Time for lunch at Olive Garden.
Back at the house, it was time to pack up a week's worth of clothes and toys and start shoving them back into suitcases.
This was the shower in the master bath, which was not at all conducive to privacy. I have seen this sort of shower in several new homes and thought how great it would be to have a nice open shower like this...until this trip. You couldn't so much as turn on the shower water and you had a little person just standing there chatting you up for the duration of your shower.
The dining room that went completely unused.
Living room that opened up to the lanai.
Bedroom that no one used.
The other bathroom.
And one last night around the pool.
