How is morning traffic from Siesta Key to Tampa airport (say between 7 and 9am). Just want to make sure we leave ourselves enough time to get back to the airport.

You'll meet morning traffic from the Sunshine Skyway bridge then over the I-275 bridge (aka Howard Frankland) into Tampa. That could be a problem. The alternative going straight up I-75 then I-4 past downtown Tampa isn't going to be much better. I would allow 2.5 to 3 hours to get to the airport.

Better to spend an extra 1.5 to 2 hours in the airport than stuck in traffic biting your nails. Plenty of places at the airport to while away the time ... have a late breakfast/early lunch at a number of eating places there, plus shops to browse around.
