This is like ancient history now, but I still want to put up these pictures! We had SO MUCH FUN on this trip! It was everything we wanted it to be—fun, simple, and very relaxing.
The kids all got toys that corresponded with a number on a coin.
One of our favorite things was to escape to one of the porches and read our books with a beautiful view of the ocean!
My sister-in-law, Amy, and I threw a little birthday party for our boys—who were all born in July! She put together a sponge race, and a water balloon toss. Everyone had fun.
I made some sad looking little cupcakes. I was attempting to make ocean waves with the blue frosting, but it seriously failed, so I just started drawing squiggly designs and stuff instead. Scott’s sister, Ali, helped me finish decorating them and she made some cute ones with starfish and such. They all tasted good, despite what they ended up looking like!!
And a few times the kids just really wanted to watch movies and play cell phone & Ipad games…even Sam!
Luke cut his foot somehow one day and did NOT want anything to do with the ocean water or sand, but we were able to cover it up with bandages and then put a sock on it…and then with lots of slow coaxing we eventually got him to love the beach again. Scott had to use some tricks to get him back in the water though.
Luke would come in the water to get them from Daddy and then go back to the beach to put them in a bucket.
It was a bit trickier to let Sam play out on the beach. Easier to let him just crawl around outside. But we attempted a few different things.
PS. I made baby Sam’s sunhat. The one he is wearing is version 2.0. The first one was way too small! Kid has a big head apparently. It is not easy to make hats. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s easy…they are lying.
I have one more post for Florida—all of our family pictures! Then that will be it for our awesome summer vacation and onto projects and other things we’ve been puttering around with all summer!
