Florida (finally!)

So my camera is fixed. Okay, maybe not so much fixed as replaced. Oops! :)

In any case, now I have vacation pictures to share!

There are too many to share, so maybe later next week when I have time I will do another slide show.

We went with Jon and Kelly and Jordan and rented a house right near the beach. We were very close to Seaside (if you don't know Seaside, think of the movie "The Truman Show" with all the perfect little houses and perfect little neighborhoods--that was filmed at Seaside.), so we spent some time there. They have a great park and it's just a fun place to look around.

We spent a few days at the beach, but not as many as we had hoped. The "red tide" blew in while we were there and I'm still not exactly sure what it is, but it makes the water bad. Even the air by the ocean was pretty stinky, and there were dead fish washing up on the shore--not pretty! So we swam there only the first few days, and after that we stuck to the pool.

The boys had a blast! There were days they didn't even want to leave the house--I think they were just loving having some down time. Bridget, on the other hand, didn't have such a fun time. She was not feeling well most of the week, so she didn't really sleep well and during the days she was cranky (which is completely unlike her!). She just had a head cold, and thankfully on the last day she was feeling better. Of course that was after not eating for almost 12 hours and a visit to the doctor. But that's a story I won't go into today! :)

Both boys enjoyed being buried in the sand! Too fun!

Doesn't he look a little worried? He was actually pretty close to the water's edge!

What a cutie, huh? I couldn't resist posting this one!

Okey dokie. More later, maybe.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry things didn't go quite as planned. I'm sure you guys made the best of it anyway. Loved the pictures including Jordan! I miss seeing her daily. I totally cracked up at Jonah buried up to his head.

L-O-V-E the matching beachwear.

Lovely photos.

I hope Bridget is feeling better.

Looks like you had a ball!

My bro set up our beach vacation and he originally was looking at the Panhandle...guess it is good that did not pan out (no pun intended).

Such great pictures!

Rather sad about the water issue . . . sounds like the kids don't realize they actually missed much though. : )
