Maren's Visit--Everglades Alligator Farm

Maren's visit in April continued with one of our favorite adventure's the next day.  Since it was the weekend, Dallas was able to watch Daxton and let us girls have a fun day out together.  We decided to make it a crazy one by exploring the Everglades Alligator Farm.  We had great sunshine and very low crowds which made for a perfect day to visit.  

When we arrived we booked our airboat ride first.  We should have thought about how this would effect pictures for the rest of the day...

The Everglades Alligator Farm is my favorite place to take visitors now, because it's the only places we've found that does a "thrill" airboat ride, plus they offer headphones which make it a lot more enjoyable.  We were able to get the front row, optimal for the best views and craziest ride.

Our driver did several different 360s with water spraying all over us.  We had so much fun and laughed the entire ride.  I was so glad I brought my go pro to capture our experience!

On our way back in, Maren took off her sunglasses at which point we realized just how wet we had gotten!  Guess she forgot her waterproof mascara!

These pictures are absolutely classic!

So in love with this shot!
Makeup and dirt all over our faces and hair.  I love that neither of us cared and we simply had a blast of a day.

After our airboat ride, we explored the rest of Everglades Alligator Farm.  We of course saw tons of alligators, and were a little shocked to see that it was mating season in the breeding pond...

We also watched a great alligator wrestling show and then held baby alligators after.  Maren was pretty excited to interact with her first alligator.
After our adventures at the alligator farm, we drove up the road for yummy fresh milkshakes and produce at the Robert is Here fruit stand.  It was such a great day with Maren.  I love that girl so much and count myself so lucky and blessed to have her as my dear friend!
