Road Trip USA Part 4: Florida Here We Come!

Have you ever driven through the very long state of Florida? I say long because that panhandle just never ends. You feel like Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn in Swingers when they are all jazzed to drive to Vegas from LA. They are pumped and singing and stoked and then it cuts back to them four hours later and they both look dead, like holy crap how much longer must I drive through this boring ass desert?

Florida is no desert, but you get sick of the exact same jungley foliage and "Cafe Risque" and "Gun Store This Exit" billboards for hour after hour. We were pretty tired from a week on the road but we were jazzed to finally be in our new home state. Can you tell?

Early morning gas station photo shoot!

And after five long days on the road we made it to Orlando! I think the happiest of our little family was definitely Teeny who made himself right at home with his new best friend Harley.

We made it to Orlando just in time to celebrate Jonathon's birthday. Since our friends have lived here for two years they know all of the hip spots in town and we all went out to Seasons 52. If you are in an area where there is a Seasons 52 I highly recommend. It was delish.

Since we now live less than a 6 hour drive from an NFL team (unlike in LA) I birthday gifted Jonathon tickets to the Tampa Bay/Jacksonville/Miami game of his choosing just so long as he promised to take me as his date. He seemed happy to comply.

Make it a good wish...

What's better than family and friends?!

Happy birthday baby! Welcome to our new hometown!!!

Awesome! I'm glad you guys took a road trip--what an experience and memory maker. You'll have something to talk about in the locker room.
