We made it! We took the kids to Florida last week for our annual family getaway. It was great.
Though Florida was "unseasonably cool"-- it was still in the low 80's and the Gulf was a warm 82. We had a great time. For us this is the perfect vacation-- to just sit on the beach and do nothing other than move ourselves from the beach, to the pool, to the beach, to inside our condo for a nap, to the beach
We did sneak in a trip to the east coast of Florida to watch the shuttle launch-- which was neat to see.
And now for some pictures. That is what you really were hoping for, right?
Lexi loved being in the pool. Loved it.
Here's a cute video of her jumping in (she did this over and over and over....)
Taya & Callie jumping into the pool
The big kids by the pool
I spent so much time nursing. Anyone know how to wean a 2 yo? My other kids gave the boob up so easily and much sooner than 2 yrs (though I was always preggo....)
My big girls
Can you see their matching suits? This was pretty much what they did they entire week...
They spent so much time in the water-- we saw crabs, sea turtles, dolphins, fish, and had a whole school of sting rays swim by us. Such fun...
They spontaneously held hands-- I had to document the moment
We always feed the birds just once-- they kids love it
I love that 2 yo belly!
The kids were champs for the airplane ride (about 4 hours)-- and getting through security and whatnot...though it was exhausting to lug 2 carseats, 2 boosters, 3 suitcases and a stroller through the airport....oy! And now we are working on getting them back on Colorado time, since FL is 2 hours ahead of us....so our kids have been getting up at 530a, Yawn!
School is out for the summer on Thursday, so we are prepping for a summer-o-fun. I can't wait for it to actually get warm here and stay warm.....
