Fun Wednesday!

So this last week was a BLAST! My brother Michael came in town with his girlfriend Audrey and her son Landon. It was such a busy, but exciting week! Sean and I were able to meet up with them a few times. First, on Wednesday, we went to Blue Springs. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a huge natural spring that you can float down and at the very beginning, the water comes out of a huge underground spring creating a large "swimming hole".
Right past the "No Swim" zone there is a lot of wildlife to be seen. Alligators, gars, turtle, Manatees, and even...RIVER OTTERS!!! They were swimming around like crazy trying to show off for all of us watching. It wasn't a zoo, there was no glass wall for you to look through to see them, they were just swimming and having a blast in their natural habitat! It was so amazing!
Because of our trips up to Blue Springs in Orange City, FL, (just about an hour away), Sean has discovered his LOVE for free diving! He is seriously wanting to take some classes to get better at it. I always knew he was like a fish, but I think now the sea is calling for him to come home!

Anyway, I had to work on Thursday, so after we all left the Springs, we parted ways with the rest of my family and went home.

That. Looks. Legendary! Blue Spring- if in the future we really do make the much dreamed about trip to the Fla-rida, take me there!
