15: On our way! March 6th we started down to Florida for our honeymoon! What an exciting time! When we are able to be together alone for a whole week!
16: Our first day was uneventful at first! We drove and planned on stopping at a campsite to camp. Got to the area in Missouri around 10 pm. Hmm...Campsite is nowhere to be found! We were in the middle of a big forest and drove in an hour loop looking for it! So we kept heading down to Florida! Finally at two in the morning we stopped at this Days Inn.
19: The scenery in Missouri, and the towns were unbelievable! There was so much junk, and poverty. It was so different from what we are used to! | But then, our trip took another turn. Our car we were driving broke down! AH! We got towed to a shop 15 min. before it closed! They "fixed" it, and we were on our way! :)
20: Our car was not fixed, it kept missing the whole 5 hour drive to Destin! | The Mediterranea, Destin FL | We made it Monday night at midnight, FINALLY!
23: Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit - Peter Ustinov
24: We are probably the only couple EVER, to talk to their Dad (Elmer) everyday of their honeymoon! We had car troubles still, and we spent the rainy day at the car shop! We also did some activities inside!

37: Canoing+Portaging+Resting+Eating+Enjoying Nature!
38: We Started at Lake Kawishawi, and camped our first night on a Island in Lake Polly. It rained sometimes throughout the day, and at night. Good thing we brought along Justin M's monstrous tarp!
40: We fished many, many hours! It was so relaxing and exciting when you finally felt the tug at the end of your line! Tyler caught the most fish, including his minnow of a fish!
41: The sun came out a coupe times at the end of our trip! Oh did it feel good! We were getting used to the rain and the clouds! :)
42: We spent two nights at an awesome campsite. Not too many bugs, and not too cold!
43: We took turns washing dishes after every meal. Cutting down trees to make our campfires, and just relaxing. We went on a day trip and enjoyed nature!
45: Singing Songs of Zion by the campfire felt so perfect in the middle of Gods creations!
46: We started our journey back on a bright sunny day! We tried to put up a "sail" so we could just sail across the lake :) Justin and I found a waterfall on a little excursion, and we all came to a pool where we caught one fish after another! We were all pretty excited after not catching very many fish our whole trip!
48: Many good memories made with good friends! We sure enjoyed our time with Sarah, Tyler, Dana, and Justin and getting to know them better!
