Easter was spend at Tate’s Auntie Kelly in Tampa where she was spoiled and loved by her Florida family and friends.  My little fish got to experience the beach for the first time.  Sadly there was a cold snap earlier in the month causing the Gulf of Mexico to be too cold for swimming.  This was the month that Mommy decided NO MORE LAP CHILD for long flights.
