Fourth of July 2011 – Part 4 – Miami Tour

by Nicole Lee

And to wrap up the Fourth of July here are a few photos from around town. By the time I was taking most of these I had been drinking a little bit so I had to over edit a lot of it. The black and whites are blown out beyond belief, but I think I kind of like it. (The “Scott does Spiderman” at the end is my favorite, though. He was hanging from that tree and within two seconds of the shutter snapping he fell, flat on his back. He had a huge sore for days. Poor sir.)

An Italian Easter with Cat Babies and Gators, Part 1

by Nicole Lee

Easter 2011 has officially come and passed my friends. And what a wonderful adventure it was. I’m not usually one that’s that celebrates religious holidays as it’s not something that I feel strongly about. Furthermore, this particular holiday I have nothing invested in the secular celebration either. Too much candy, creepy bunnies and zombie-like religious figureheads. It just doesn’t really work for me. So the less “traditional” I can have it the better. And this year was a great example of just that. We started off with Maggiano’s Easter buffet. I’m kind of little so buffet style eating is somewhat difficult for me to feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth, but this was an exception. Food was brilliant, service was spot on and the company (Scott and his dad) was superb. We ate and ate and ate until finally we couldn’t eat anymore. With bellies full of delicious Italian nomz we moved on to exploring what the else Easter had to offer.  (Review for the actual restaurant coming soon!)

The rest of the day was planned while mid-bite, to include a walk through Lettuce Lake Park followed by the Disney documentary “African Cats”. Photos of the park, with the follow up blog post to come tomorrow, so watch for it! In the meantime, though, enjoy what made for an absolutely delicious Easter.
