In all the years that my Dad and Grandparents have lived in Florida, I have never been down there for Christmas. It's pretty awesome. So, I thought I'd take a few photos.
The funny thing is there are no standard Christmas Tree's. Dad has a Christmas Palm Tree!
Here are some super cute ornaments on the tree.
Here is Mr. Bubba Gump.
We found out that he has an ulcer in his eye while I was down there.
Dad & Bubba getting ready to go out for my birthday!
We went to Wyld's Cafe and it was fantastic. Isn't my dad adorbs? He was such a trooper, we got him out 3 days in a row which for anyone that knows him, that's a big deal. I helped him with his computer and put on my tech support hat. Helped him buy a TV, got a haircut (btw's barber shops smell strange), took him to Moe's for lunch. For someone with ALS for over 15 years, he did very well. He gets super tired and had to sleep a lot, but that's okay. I know that he appreciates me coming down to visit.
People always say, you're on vacation when you go to Florida? Well yes, and no. While, I am down there, I'm not doing touristy stuff. I make my usual trip to Miromar Outlet Mall for a couple hours, go to the pool or the beach. But really, I'm there to see Dad. I get to catch up my rest, eat some seafood. But really, it's just helping out Dad do normal things that he can't always get help doing.
Now, we just have to get him on another cruise next year! Jeff and I are ready for a long vacation and a cruise would be the perfect combo! Now, I just need to get my name on my passport changed!
