It's been a while since my last post, but things have been a bit busy and we just got back from a week long vacation in Orlando, FL. We went back to visit my wife's family and friends we had there. I also had the opportunity to speak to several classes at the school I attended. One of the real highlights of the trip though was the day we spent at Gatorland. My wife grew up going there and has great memories of holding snakes, watching the alligators feed and seeing the gator wrasslin'.

With 72% humidity and a heat index of 114 degrees, the kids were looking for a way to cool off.

We took a walk along the boardwalk that winds through the 10 acre alligator breeding marsh.

There are about 130 gators in the marsh and they are next to, under and all around the boardwalk.

After our little walk, we went over to check out the gator feedin'.

We spent the last part of our day on a "Swamp Walk" through a cypress swamp.
