I found sunshine and green and flowers in February

Last year, Todd's granddaughter's school had a raffle.
$20 for the price of the ticket, and he won two round trip tickets to anywhere Jet Blue flies.

We flew to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and then got on a cruise ship.
We sailed to Honduras, Belize, and two stops in Mexico. Then back to Ft. Lauderdale, where we got stuck for two days. (Winter storms cancelled our flight, so we stayed in Florida.)

In Honduras, we went to Gumbalimba Park. We saw monkeys, macaws, iguanas, and so many awesome trees and flowers.

In Belize, we visited Nim Li Punit (Mayan Ruins) and a spice farm. I was surprised by how much I loved the spice farm. We got to try the pods that chocolate came from. We also got to try allspice, basil, thyme, nutmeg, and mace. It was beautiful and so interesting.

In Mexico, we visited more Mayan Ruins (Chacchoben) and went snorkeling.

In Florida, we walked to a natural history and science discovery museum.

My favorite part of the trip (of course) was 85 degrees and green and flowers.
