Alex and Laura's New Year's visit to Florida

Just before New Year's, Alex and Laura came to Florida to visit. They got in to Orlando on December 30th and rented a red Mustang convertible so they could enjoy the warm Florida weather. Unfortunately, they brought with them an arctic chill and it was the coldest it's been in Jacksonville in years. We got back from KC on the 30th, and on the 31st we met them for lunch at Barbara Jean's and then we went to our house.

Andrea and I took Alex and Laura for a ride on the golf cart, and Alex drove us to the North Island and then down to the Harbor area of the neighborhood. We were planning to ride around on the golf course too, but it was a bit cold out and the battery light started to blink. We were worried we'd have to end up pushing the cart home, but thankfully we cut the tour a little short and made it back in time. I think since we'd unplugged it while we were out of town, and because it was so cold out, the battery wasn't doing as well as normal.

After our ride, we exchanged some Christmas gifts played some games together.

On January 1st, we spent the first day of 2018 with everyone at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We played some more games, watched some college football and had some of Grandma's spaghetti for dinner. So happy that Alex and Laura came to visit! The kids really loved to see them again and enjoyed teaming up with them playing some games.
