Last January, my husband and I ventured down to Ft. Lauderdale for a three-day weekend getaway. We decided to visit the Everglades and on the way to the specific entrance we chose, we happened upon this fruit stand called "Robert Is Here." They advertised key lime milkshakes. If you know me, you know about my love for ice cream and coffee. You ask me if I want ice cream or coffee, the answer is always yes. ALWAYS. I had to get my hands on this milkshake and check out this place with the oddest name in the world. We got the milkshakes. Key lime pie + pie crust + ice cream = heaven. Turns out that this fruit/milkshake stand also has a zoo in the back. I didn't have my camera with me, though, so I didn't get any photos!
So this year when my sister in law and I were planning our we-need-to-get-the-heck-out-of-dodge vacation, I suggested Ft. Lauderdale. It's warm and that's all we were looking for really. I took her to Robert Is Here to get a shake and to take photos of the animals. If you're ever near the western side of Everglades National Park, stop by and see Robert. He really is there. You will love it and so will your kids!
Post on the Everglades (along with some cool photos) coming soon!
