Mr. Fix-it and the Jimster's Vacation Trip
This past summer saw some adventure for the Ramsey family in the form of a big road trip first to Florida then to Maine, back to Florida then home to Tennessee. I have to tip my hat to my wonderful husband who voluntarily drove my uncle to Maine for a visit with family-sans me since I was scheduled to work. The trip to Florida where my uncle lives is at least a 12 hour drive. We decided to break up the trip and take a little vacation time for Mr. Fix-it and the Jimster. And boy did they have fun! The above shot was taken prior to departure to Florida and the big father-son experience.
A cabin was rented near Panama City Florida and Mr. Fix-it and the Jimster settled in for a few days.
They were busy for those days and got sunburned riding the Sea Screamer. The Sea Screamer is a boat that guarantees up close and personal experiences with the dolphins in Florida. And the trip did not disappoint!
Here's the teenager himself-all red like a lobster since the sun was very strong in Florida (sunscreen was used but too much sun even with sunscreen can burn your skin). See that sort of smile? That is good for teens!
Mr. Fix-it and the Jimster did a few other things besides ride on the Sea Screamer and they had a fantastic time. I think they'd both agree the siting and touching of a dolphin was the highlight of their vacation. Not to mention the great father-son time. Mr. Fix-it was on leave from his military career and this was Jimmy's last summer before college-a momentous time in any teen's life for sure. After their trip to Panama City the next stop will be near Orlando and on to Maine with Uncle Rick....

Friday's post will be on our after Maine trip to one of Florida's sunny famous gardens set in an amusement park. What is the name of that amusement park? Can anyone guess a famous garden with an amusement park?
