Pictures from My Vacation

So, last week the family and I went on vacation to Florida and Georgia. We had a great time and saw a bunch of friends and family so I figured that I would share some pictures with my blog family. So here they are. (I think you can click on them to see full size)


Here is a picture of Absolutgator and I posing by this big cannon in St. Augustine Florida (the oldest city in the USA):
Here is Absolutgator holding my son Patrick and trying to corrupt him with Florida Gator non-sense. I had to take the gator head away from him:
Here are a couple of pictures taken in Tallahassee Fla at Florida State University. Patrick, Mommy, and I all enjoyed the FSU hall of champions. Got our picture taken with the Bobby Bowden statue, and even ran into coach Chuck Amato...Way cool!
Here are a few pictures taken in Panama City Beach. We went to "ZooWorld" which is this really cool little zoo they have there. If you are ever there I suggest checking it out. It would be worth your while. This pic is of Mommy, Patrick and I near the turtles :
My favorite animal that we saw at ZooWorld was this really REALLY cool Panther We were really close to him and he was stalking all over the cage and growling and stuff. It was GREAT. I think he just liked the Panther shirt I was wearing that day. (as you can see in the above picture) My wife makes fun of me because I took a lot of pictures of him, but what the heck I love Panthers:
Here I am holding my son and introducing him to Sydney the giraffe:
Here is a picture my wife snapped of me while I was taking a nap after all the kids wore me out. My little buddy "Thor" had curled up next to me:
Here is a picture of me holding my son in Newnan, Georgia near Atlanta at my sister's house:
Here is Patrick wearing his new FSU hat and playing with one of his toys in Georgia: Yes he tried to jump that ramp in the background, I have pictures of that too:
Those are some pictures of our great trip that we had last week. There are others but I didn't want to bore you all to death. I hope you like and of course I use any excuse to show pics of (in my humble opinion) "The cutest kid on the planet" LOL!

The Mountain Cat said...

This blog is my children...I mean child.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--clicking on the pics does nothing. You look pretty cute napping on the couch with your protector "Thor".

That panther does look cool.

As American as Apple Pie said...

I *heart* my ipod too. Don't feel bad Mt Kitty.

Christine said...

Ha, ha, Vince...pathetic! But I'm not one to talk...

Beautiful family, Doc.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Patrick is one of the cutest kids on the planet. Of course, I might be biased about the others.

Doc said...

Thanks everyone... I think my family is fantastic too!

Apple.... If you click on the pics you can view most of them fullsize for some reason the one on the couch won't let you. I am having no problem doing it.

Vin... If this blog is your child then you might want to consider punishing it... LOL!

I don't even want to think what the picinc table guy would've done to that cannon, oops I guess I did huh. Very nice pics. Looks like you had a good time. Beautiful child :)

As American as Apple Pie said...

Lu--*chuckle* Actually, what went through my head when I first saw the pic was that maybe this was Doc's way of telling us something. :)
It probably would've been too big for scary park dude.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Your kid = too cute

Tink said...

Hey, that's MY drinking village!! :D

Dana said...

I've got to admit, I was expecting a different pose with the cannon too, but then I remembered this was a family vacation.

Oh, and Patrick is the second cutest kid ever *wink*

Doc said...

Lu - Y I K E S

Apple - That was actually running through my mind as we were taking that pic...Scary

Boobs - thank you... I love that kid so much !

Tink - I was thought about you when I saw those "quaint" signs. We also went up the lighthouse and drank at A1A

Dana - you and Apple must share the same dirty mind.
...and Patrick gets his good looks from his mommy

Knight said...

Your kid is an absolute doll and he looks just like you.

Leighann said...

You should post pics of Patrick everyday :)

Single In The City said...

Wonderful family Pic's.. And Yes Patrick is soooo cute, If I had a daughter I would be trying to hook them up! LOL!!!

Glad you had a wonderful Time!!!

Jay said...

Oh man, will you guys adopt me? I've already been to college so you won't have to pay for that. All you have to do is take me on the family vacations! LOL

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--except that he looks just like you! Well, you already know we think alike.

Dana--I think there are several of us that share the same dirty mind.

Lu' said...

I was going add something about the guy, the cannon and the very wrong activity he engages in but it doesn't seem right with pictures of your lovely family in the post. I'm sure y'alls minds can get there on your own any way :)

Matt-Man said...

Panthers are indeed cool. That was the mascot of my High School and we would have one at one football game a year. Cheers!!

Karen said...

Looks like a great trip. Your son is just the cutest thing ever. I want to see the Evil Kenevil ramp jump picture. :)

Bina said...

Okay, you and your son GET any cuter? I had no idea you were a hottie!

I love panthers, too. They are just so gorgeous! I actually had a solid black cat (well, once when I was little and once when I was an adult) that I named Panther. LOVED those cats.

Okay, why won't it let me make the one bigger of you taking a nap? It let me do all the other ones!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Bina--I had the same issue. It won't do it.

Bina said...

BTW, you are correct in that my daughter wants me to stay home. EVERY SINGLE MORNING she says, "Momma, I don't want to go to daycare. Can you stay home with me?"

Bina said...

And I meant, "Can you and your son GET any cuter". You know, the whole coke thing in my keyboard didn't work real well.

Doc said...

Knight - Thank you but I still think he looks like mommy... He gets his sticking out ears from me

Leighann - If I did post pics of him everyday do you think we would get more readers?

Single - I am already making plans to hook patrick up with Jeff Gordon's daughter Ella ;-)

Jay - you got it.. Next trip is to New York

Doc said...

Apple - I swear you said 3 weeks ago that he looks more like his mommy

Lu - I now think that you share the same mind as dana and Apple - LOL!

Matt - Go Panthers !!

Karen - He didn't jump off even though I think he wanted to. He was fascinated by his cousings using it to jump their skateboards

Doc said...

Bina - Thank you, you make me blush... ;-)

But yes I agree that your little one wants you to stay home

Jahooni said...

Cute pics... welcome home!

Becky said...

Awww. So cute!

Micky-T said...

I'm way bummed that I'm to tired to hang out and look around, I'll come back!

Jeff B said...

thanks for sharring the pics. Looks and sounds like you had a good time.

Micky-T said...

Looks like you had a good time. Your a fine looking family and your pictures are not boring.
I did try to get a closer look at you sleeping! Oeww, does that sound
wrong?

Anndi said...

That cheeky boy of yours is way adorable... I want to squeeze the cheeks!! Too cute!

Glad you had fun dear.
