The longer I have lived in Florida the more I have notice how many different types of palm trees there are! They are different sizes, have different leaves, and different trunks. We had a beautiful afternoon a few days ago so J and I decided to go on a Palm Tree Scavenger Hunt. We walked about a 3 block radius and took pictures of what we saw. Watching a 6 year old look at the world this way was inspiring. We miss so much just going here and there. I had J think of something special about each one. All of the captions are straight from his 6 year old mouth.

This one was full of coconuts.
 Our Trees
A Normal One
Fan Leaves 
Pom Poms
Claw Leaves
 Tall and Skinny
 Fat Bottom
 Thumb Trunk
Cat Tail
Flag Trees

We saw a lot of beautiful flowers, plants, and other strange trees as we strolled along. I highly suggest doing this. Take a walk and let them have a camera, J took about 100 photos, he enjoyed looking for anything different to take a picture of. Now when we are driving around he points out any other different palm tree he sees.

How fun!  You’ll have to do this again in your new state.  Different pine trees…or something like that.
