Trip to Florida

Last week we were able to take a trip to Tampa Bay, Florida. Steph had a work conference down there and it just so turns out that her Grandparents live down in Tarpon Springs. So Drew and Josh spent a good amount of time hanging out with Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Jellum. We were able to take Drew down to the sponge docks in Tarpon, where we visited an aquarium, had some excellent Greek dessert among other things. At the aquarium we saw a shark feeding and 250 lb Grouper fish. After the shark feeding we headed down to the sponge docks and watch some sailors unload a fresh (can you call them fresh?) bunch of sponges. As we continued our walk we visited a Greek dessert shop (Tarpon has a huge Greek population) where we (Steph and Josh) shared a Greek chocolate mousse.

Overall the trip was fun, unfortunately the weather was rather cold (for Florida at least) and Drew wasn't able to get any time in the pool. All said though it was a fun quick trip to Florida and the Jellums really enjoyed playing with their great grandson.
