Florida Posts

Note: all my Florida posts are after this. When you get to the bottom click on "older posts" and it will take you to more of them. And then probably click on that one again. The first one is about the airplane rides. I just had so many pictures and video it was hard to limit it to just this and didn't want to miss anything. Enjoy!

A Visit with the Edgels

We got to meet the Edgels at the Airport this year. It was a lot quicker of a visit but still fun to get a chance to see them! Their daughter Olive is 3 1/2 months older than Brooklynn so it will be fun to see them grow up together.

A Sad Goodbye

As great as our week in Florida was, all good things have to come to an end. We have to go back home, go back to work, etc. I was doing OK until Adeline and Brooklynn hugged each other goodbye. It was so cute and sweet and I know in kid time it will seem like an eternity until we see each other next. I know they both miss each other very much. Brooklynn keeps pointing at pictures of Addy and says "Dy!" Very sweet.
We miss everyone and can't wait to see you again! Thanks for a great week in Florida!

My favorite thing in Florida is going to watch the sunset on the beach. It's hard to get there every single day but if I had my wish it would be a daily event. I take what I can get.

Family Pictures


Aaah, the cousins. They of course are the center of all our attention whenever we get together, as it should be. They are so stinkin' cute.

Brooklynn & Andrew

Brooklynn and Andrew continue to be very cute together. They are only 10 days apart so it's very fun to see them doing so many of the same things, but also to see their differences which means it's all personality.
The only hard thing is that it's SUPER hard to get a decent picture of the two of them, they are both all over the place.

Brookly & Adeline

"Brookly" (as Adeline calls Brooklynn) and Addy are becoming such good friends. Whenever they got a chance they would run over to each other and play. If Brooke was ever sad about anything Addy would come to her rescue and usually blow raspberries in her face to make Brooke laugh. They kept laughing together and playing. We are all sad we live so far apart, but so excited to see each other again next time.

Turtle Beach

We can't find that many shells at Siesta Beach because the sand is THAT nice. So we go up a few miles to Turtle Beach once when we're there to get shells. The entire beach is ground shells and bigger shells. Not the greatest beach for hanging out all day but the kids sure love it for a few hours to find shells. Brooklynn was REALLY fascinated by the sand here because it's darker and when it stuck to her she could actually see it. She kept pointing to it like, "HEY, it's on my skin!"
She was pretty good at finding shells, but also very good at dumping them out again. We managed to leave with a few and she still loves to play with them.
Here is Brooklynn touching her first fish. She was very curious about it and every time she touched it and it squirmed she got so startled. But then she would want to touch it again.
