Bahia Honda Bridge and Beach

This was the first place we stopped in the Keys and the last place I saw my wedding rings...    :(

Sweet ole Abigail

This is Abigail at one of her finest moments on our vacation! I think she had had enough at this point.

This is for you Jack!

Key West

We drove down to Key West on Friday and are driving back up to Naples today. The Keys were beautiful and a ton of fun. Can't wait to go back and stay longer!!

This has nothing to do with the trip but Emmaline has found her toes this week and plays with them every chance she gets.  Too cute!

Boat pics!

The boat ride was so much fun! Emmaline had the best nap of her life. The kids loved it beyond belief. Sean was so proud that his kids love the boat life. On the way back in, dolphins swam in our wake for about 15 minutes. It was so amazing. Sean took pics from his phone, so I'll post those in a little while.

We stopped at Shell Island to pick shells. Driving around in our own boat is AWESOME!!

Little captain!

All white

Yesterday afternoon we had our pics taken on the beach, then went to Publix for ice cream. We promised the kids ice cream for cooperating and smiling in the pictures. They didn't really, but we still got them ice cream! Don't they look good in their all white outfits?! Can't wait to get the proofs back from the photographer!

Naples, Florida!!

We will be in Naples all week visiting grandparents and great-grandparents, so look for blog updates all week! 

Here is a picture of the kids in the car coloring the coloring books that the cashier gave them at Publix! Another reason we love Florida...we love Publix!

Birthday Boy!

This morning I made waffles for Hayden and put 5 candles on them for his birthday. He was so excited. We all sang Happy Birthday to him and he opened his presents from his sisters. He got a Toy Story Thermos cup and a Dora game for his Leapster Explorer, which he has been glued to all morning! We can't believe he is 5 years old. We are very fortunate that he has grown to be such a happy, healthy, kind-hearted little boy!   Mommy and Daddy love you so much little buddy!

Not quite ready...

Abigail colored with markers for the first time today. Maybe she's not quite ready!! I think we will stick with crayons.

Sick baby

Abigail has an ear infection and bad cough this week, so she feels crummy. Today I was rocking Emmaline (who also started the bad cough today) to sleep and Abigail climbed in the chair with us and fell asleep too. It was so sweet, rocking both my baby girls to sleep! I wish I had a picture of both girls passed out on me, but Hayden isn't the best photographer!
