I posted lots of pictures to make up for my blogging absence! :)
We're back! Florida was a GREAT vacation! We rented a house in a development right across the street from the beach and just a few houses down from a pool. (Way to go Kelly!) The weather couldn't have been better......nice warm days, not too hot, gentle breezes off the ocean.....perfect! Henry and Jonah were in heaven-we went to the beach every morning right after breakfast and then stopped at the pool on the way back to the house.
We were only gone a week, but we did so much that it seemed like longer. We explored a charming little town called Seaside and found a fun little park for the kids to play in while we were in town. The boys (Sam and Jon) went grocery shopping for us and stocked up the shelves in the kitchen. The kids picked up seashells and dug in the sand. We swam. We made home-made ice-cream. We ate ice-cream cones in town. We relaxed on the beach. The boys went deep-sea fishing and caught a bunch of snapper and some other fish. They went golfing on an amazing, beautiful golf course. Kelly and I hit a great sale at the outlet mall (The Children's Place) and found some good deals. We visited Bass Pro Shops and bought crab nets for the guys. They caught about two dozen crabs that we cooked up for dinner!
We had such a fun trip and it was really relaxing. Jon and Kelly are so fun and easy to vacation with! The boys are a little worn out after all the excitement of the last week. And Henry is a little confused. He thought that the house we were renting was "our new house." So we came home last night, and he said, "Why are we at our old house?" This morning during breakfast, he asked, "Mommy, are we going to the beach today?" Sorry, buddy. Back to reality! :)
