Back from Florida :)

We are back from our spring break trip to to visit my parents at their home in Mount Dora, Florida. The kids and I had a really nice time (unfortunately Don stayed home this time around) We spent lots of time visiting and playing :) I am sharing a few photos here to give you an idea of our trip but it was hard to narrow down (I, as usual, took tons of photos!)

Jacob spent lots of time hunting and catching lizards (he always lets them go right away) Here he is with his favorite kind:

We took the kids go-karting and they LOVED it! They have been wanting to go since they were little and I can't believe this is the first time they actually got to go. Here is Sam getting ready to take off:
We spent an afternoon at downtown Disney (Jacob stayed back at Nana's) Sam loved shopping at the Lego store and Abbie got a leather bracelet engraved with her name (spelled right!!)

We went to the beach a couple of times and had a great time as always! Each time we ate at a little beach bar with the deck right on the beach and yummy food and drinks. Here my mom and I are enjoying the bar:


I had a ball taking beautiful photos at the beach. Here is one of my favorites:

Abbie was in the water most of the time - here she is during a brief rest:


Sam - catching a wave:

Jacob search for critters - he loves the way the little clams dig down into the sand:

We went to Bok Tower Gardens and it was beautiful:

I again took lots of photos - here is one I really like :)

Oranges galore!

Last but not least - lots of pool play! Here is Abbie jumping in:

Thanks Mom and Dad for making our trip great! Love you both!!
