My mom, sister and I are off to Key West to have some fun. It just happens to be that my best friend Allie and her family are down there at the same time. So I'm excited to do some shopping, get some sun and have a little fun at night.
Then we are heading to Islamorada where my Uncles house is to meet up with 13 other family members for mini lobster season. My dad and Jeff are trailering the boat down on Saturday, my brother flies in from Oklahoma on Friday and then all my cousins etc come.
We will be catching a lot of these!
Well let me rephrase my cousins and my uncle and maybe Jeff will be catching a lot of these. My uncle and mom have been doing this with their parents since they were little kids. And we literally get our limit of lobster within 15 minutes the first morning its crazy. They know where all the good spots are and we scout the day before and wake up at like 4 in the morning to go get our spot before anyone else does. (insane if you ask me) We come up with like 100 lobster because each person on the boat gets a max of 6. This is Jeff's first time coming because he normally was up playing football during this time and it is a true treat. My family is very stubborn and doesn't hold anything back and when we have 16 people in one house it tends to get a little crazy. But we will also be going fishing for mahi and all sorts of stuff so it will be a good time.
Hopefully I come back with a tan and nice and relaxed! I will be back in 10 days. It's a little bittersweet because we get back on a Saturday and teachers go back to school that following Tuesday. Where did the summer go?
