Vacation is exhausting!

Fort Lauderdale, Florida




Okay, well exhausting isn't the word to describe our actual vacation...it was lovely, peaceful, beautiful and fun. I had my husband by my side for 12 days, so really there were no complaints. We had our children, our family, then sun, the sand, the pool and palm trees, what else could you ask for?? I even had time to read TWO books! We swam almost daily, went to the beach four times, and laughed a lot. There was so much to do, we even went shopping on two different days! I took so many pictures that I can't wait to share, but for now here are a couple teasers.
Fort Lauderdale was just what the doctor ordered! Coming home is the exhausting part! Soooo much to do to get ready for back to school this week.
Saturday the 15th--At the beach for the first time, and it started POURING!

Think it was warm?
On our balcony the first morning we woke up there! Fionn thought it was great to stick his toes through!

Pop-pop grabbed my camera and shot one of all of us in the shallow end!

First day in the pool, he still isn't sure about this police"boat"
On Sunday the 16th, we went to the ocean with the whole family...Fionn couldn't wait to change into his swim trunks!
Mikey and Maggie had just as much fun in the sand! They were all covered in it, and it was great to see them having so much fun.

There will be more to come over the next few days. We are only TWO days away from the Princess turning six and three days away from starting school so this looks to be a busy week! We hope you all enjoy our vacation pictures, because we sure had fun taking them!

Two books...yay! (Can't wait to talk about them with you!) Looks like you had a great time and it was just what the doctor ordered (or the nurse...ha ha!)

Welcome home :o) (Can I say that when I live hundreds of miles away?! Well, I just did!)
