We Interrupt This Regular Programming To Bring You This......

We just got home from our latest sunny Florida!

Where we met up with these people....

 (Lyn and Evonne Beiler, and my folks, Larry and Myrna Roth)

And this crazy kid....

 ( The one and only Levi Adams) celebrate Levi's high school graduation......(which happened a year and half ago!).

To celebrate this great event, we took Levi on a Alligator and Wild Boar hunt at the Okeechobee Outfitters lodge in Lorida, Florida. 

Danny and Carla SantAngelo run a great, family-oriented guide business there, and they took really good care of us.


 The success rate at the lodge is very high and sure enough, Levi bagged a nice, 7 foot Alligator.....

They hunt for the Alligators at night out of an airboat using a's quite exciting!

 The next day they went Boar hunting, and he bagged this ugly, (but delicious) 200 lb. Boar !

 I think Levi really enjoyed this interesting adventure!

And then, since the opportunity presented itself, my Dad shot a Boar.....

.....and Evonne shot an Alligator.

After the hunt we enjoyed about a week of warm sunshine and took in a few sights......

(orange blossoms)

(watching a rocket taking off at Cape Canaveral) 

(driving to the end of the Keys)

(feeding the Tarpon)

(watching the horse races)

(miniature golf)

I think that it's safe to say - "That fun was had by all!"
