Low key. That was the name of the game the last full day we had in Florida. We hit the theme park the day before (which meant that Will only got thirty minutes of his normal naptime once already) so we were ready for kickin’ it back and enjoying the house. Specifically this part of the house:
The morning began with cereal box reading and mini pancake throwing. Seriously, will this boy phase of throwing things ever end?
I guess not.
After that, we all hit the pool.
I love Will’s face in this one…
Sometime that afternoon we experienced those famous Florida showers. Didn’t keep us back. You can’t keep us down Mother Nature…
Okay. ok. So it kept me back. I waited till it cleared up a bit before hopping into the hot tub.
Speaking of which, Will was obsessed with the hot tub. We turned the heat off…so the temperature wasn’t any different than bath water but I think he really took to it because it was smaller.
Later that night my Aunt and her three boys (and a special friend in tow) drove from Clearwater to visit. Here are the sisters:
We all decided to get a ‘cousins’ photo…which turned into a ridiculous thirty minute photoshoot with barely enough sun…and way too much goofing off.
One cousin missing…he’s back there…I can see his feet but not his head. And one too many bare midriffs.
We really shouldn’t be allowed in front of the camera.
Note my cousins are perfectly well behaved.
This was the best we got. And I am pretty sure that my bro El gorila was about to make a farting noise. We are classy like that.
I was pretty much obsessed with this pond across the road…
So we attempted to get a photo…Fail. This was the best one…too dark. Grainy. This is what happens when your ISO is all the way up…GRAIN. Too bad. So sad.
We ended up spending the rest of the night playing The Things game. Very mucho fun-o. Now I want it. Nothing beats asking your dad if he wrote down “Pee on your boss”.
Sunday morning was our last day…and we were supposed to be out by ten…so we fit in a morning dip.
More gratuitous Will shots 🙂
Right after we packed up the car to go, we snagged the family photo. Jer & I decided that we might like to visit the hotel that we got engaged at – Portofino Bay Hotel – so Tim & my ‘rents & Norn, Cole & Boots all decided to squeeze into my dad’s truck. We felt kinda bad about the tight fit…but we knew that it’s not every day that we get to show our first born where it all started.
But first…we checked out the big ole tractor thingie across the street.
Will was pretty cranky but he put his best fake smile on for the photos.
The crankiness is 100% because of the six teeth that are coming in all at the same time.
Poor guy can’t catch a break.
It was the perfect way to say goodbye to the vacation.
Of course, we still had the drive home…after all the journey is half the joy 🙂
