More Make A Wish Trip Pictures

Wow!  Time sure flies when you're having fun!  Or maybe when you've spent more than 25 days in the hospital with your child over the past 2 months.  Fortunately, this time, it was a pretty quick and easy issue to address - once we all figured out exactly just what the issue was (that was definitely the hard part).  Now that life has returned to normal, at least as normal as it can be since we added a new puppy 2 weeks ago, we wanted to post more pictures from our trip.  Maybe we'll even put up a puppy picture....

We decided to spend a day out on an airboat while we were in Florida.  Boy, did we have a great time.  We saw all kinds of wildlife, including a 'congregation' of 'gators.

Here are several young 'gators sunning themselves on a bank.  That was close enough, thank you!  After seeing the alligators right off, we went on to see beautiful settings and some gorgeous wildlife.

This picture cracks Karly up.  She thinks it looks like the heron is bossing the little bird around.  I think it does too!

Here are several more pictures, including my very favorite picture from the entire trip - a Great Egret caught just when he jumped into the air to take off in flight.  Look at the detail of his individual feathers!!!

This next one looks like a ballerina, as a different Great Egret lands.

We saw several birds of prey.  Below are two of my favorite 'predator' pictures.

A final Great Egret picture reflects the beauty and serenity of the day.

We all had a wonderful time.  Thanks Make A Wish and Boggy Creek Airboats Rides (who offer free rides to families on Make A Wish trips while they are staying at Give Kids The World Village).
