Deep Down in Florida

We spent July 4th weekend at the beach in Sarasota, Florida. We didn't know that our hotel would be ground zero for something called the Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival and all the tattoos and 80's hairstyles that go with it, but we had a great time anyway...

Hooray for indoor baseball! We took in a Cards-Rays game at "the Trop" in St. Petersburg one night. I don't like domes, but we weren't complaining about the 70-degree temp once we were inside.

Claire enjoys her breakfast in our hotel room while Henry sleeps in the background.

I don't know what she's planning here, but it doesn't look good.

This was Claire's first time to the beach. She loved it, and didn't even get upset when she ate large quantities of sand...

...but she definitely preferred these dried apple pieces.

Captain America shows off his new flip flops, which led to some very funny walking difficulties during their first hour of use.

Thanks to a well-positioned balcony, we had a private Fourth of July fireworks show without even leaving our room!
