On Wednesday, we left our first home-away-from-home at the Marriott Residence Inn in Tampa to head northwards to the edge of Florida. Annabel had acquired quite a lot of stuff in Tampa, and the mini-van is busting at the seams. She has got to stop shopping! Before we left, the sweet hotel staff surprised us with a cute little outfit for her.
Our first stop was Legends Field, the Spring home of the New York Yankees. Daddy took some pictures and bought Annabel her opening day outfit.
Then we headed towards Orlando to visit Louise W, our friend and my old boss, and her family. Annabel had a few meals, slept awhile, and the rest of us chatted. Annabel accepted more gifts (such a lucky girl!) and we were on our way.
About 9:00, we pulled into our next home-away-from-home at the Marriott Residence Inn in Jacksonville. Hey, haven’t we been here before?
