Skydiving and Alligators

Yeah - I know skydiving and alligators don't really go together, but that is what this weekends fun activities included. Dad, Mom, and Riley came down for Spring Break and we had a blast going to the Alligator Farm in the Everglades, Skydiving, and going to the Beach.
There were a ton of alligators that we saw on our airboat ride. And we got to hold a baby one too. Riley tried to eat the alligator because (say this with a Latin accent)"alligators are known to have the most succulent meat" - anybody, anybody, whats it from... Yeah - Transformers! But we decided to just wait and have some fried alligator afterwards. I don't know if it is the most succulent meat I have ever had, but it was pretty good.
The definite highlight of the weekend was skydiving. It was the coolest thing I have ever done. I would definitely say everyone needs to do it once in there life, if not more. I am hoping to do it quite a few more times.
And yes - stop rubbing your eyes... THAT'S MY MOM!!! Yup. She is now certified crazy. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane - what was she thinking?

Kevin had alligator in New Orleans and told the kids it tasted like chicken, they didn't quite get it:) Jumping out of a perfectly safe plane sounds like a comment from dad:) It looks incredible!!!

GREAT Photos! Your mother's brother carries that "crazy" gene, too. He's jumped a few times...so has your cousin Gina & Nicole (that's what they got for their HS grad present). Actually, your Aunt Laura even jumped once & broke her ankle when she landed! No thank you - I'll keep my feet on the ground.

I'm jealous!! I was supposed to go last summer. We got to Dallas, PA, filled out the paper work and went through the "pre-flight" training...and then it started raining. Figures, right? haha

I should come see you this summer..yes? yes? yes.

Hi Gorgeous Girl! You look like you're having so much fun! I went sky diving in Canada once. It snowed the day before. It was the coldest I've ever been. But oh so worth it!

Karen G.....I am impressed - don't think you will ever get me to jump out of an airplane! Hans says he might but not me.
