The FSU football game and FSU themed family pictures weren’t enough for us. We had to broaden our Seminole experience and visit a Seminole reservation on our trip!

Our first stop was the Swamp Water Cafe for some gator meat. Violet couldn’t get enough of the stuff! After lunch we saw a “critter show” and Violet actually pet a snake, armadillo, and skunk! She wasn’t at all afraid.

Violet fell asleep during the airboat ride, despite the drama of seeing alligators in the wild and me being stung twice on the neck by bees(?). My belly really grew during the time we were in Florida. I blame it on all the good Thanksgiving type food my Aunt Theresa cooked up!

My favorite part of the trip was visiting the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki museum and getting a refresher on Miccosukee/Seminole history. Here is Violet with her Uncle Chris on the boardwalk and with Ben on a swamp buggy ride. It was fun being a tourist in my own state!
