More Keys, Please!

We just returned from our 3rd annual trip down to the Key West!!!!!  Our first time down in the Keys was for our honeymoon back in 2008.  Last fall we made another trip down south, this time, with our favorite go-to couple, Ben and Kerri.  We had such an awesome in the little weekend get-a-way, we all agreed to make it an annual thing every fall.... And, it works out perfectly because Ben and Phil both have birthdays in November!

This year, our foursome turned into a sixsome with the addition of another couple: Carl and Cindy.  The six of us met up in Ft. Myers early Friday morning to catch the Key West Express, a huge ferry that takes you directly to the cruise port in KW. 


Can I tell you how much we LOVED this thing?!?  It turned a 7 hour car ride into a 3 hour boat ride.  The full bar and big screen tv's didn't hurt, either...

When we arrived early Friday morning, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at the marina in Mallory Square.  Then, the boys headed over to the A&B Marina for a deep sea fishing charter (thanks, Mom Z) and the girls headed back to the free (yes, I said free) hotel for some R & R by the pool.... 

A few hours later, the fishing picture texts started flying in... all of the guys were very successful in their fishing excursion, but Phil ended up with the biggest catch of the day!


Anyone who has been to key west knows that it's not only GORGEOUS,


but also has some crazy fun nightlife on Duval Street (think New Orleans in the tropics). 




So, pretty much Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday were dedicated to over indulging in food and adult beverages, mixed in with a litle shopping and site seeing.  Yay for the southernmost point!



That's about it.  Another year, another successful trip.  Photo album coming soon. :)
