Has it really been so long?! I have really been slacking! We had the great opportunity to take a family vacation to Florida! While I could not possibly give all the juicy details here, I can tell you we had a wonderful time! We left on a Wednesday evening and did an overnight flight. I was a little nervous about how the kids would do, but I was pleasantly surprised. They slept most of the time. Made it pretty easy! I didn't get much sleep at all, and would be the only reason I would not do an overnight flight again. When we landed I was seriously exhausted and it took us 2 hours to get luggage, the rental car and get on the road. We were super hungry, and I think Florida has something against fast food. Normally I would be very excited to see only local eats, but they aren't open at 6am! I was starved! We drove from Miami to Key West, and I must say that if you ever get the chance; take that drive! so gorgeous. We then spent the next 4 days hanging out with some of our favorite people! Our 'other brother' Jerry, his wife Kristina, and their amazing children Calista(2) and Jasper(7 months). With all 5 kids in the house there was no lack of entertainment. We went to the aquarium, shipwreck museum, spent a couple of days at the beach, and got out for some adult time one evening. A glorious time was had by all!
I took over 500 pictures, so this is only a tiny little sample of all the cool things we saw. If you are my facebook friend you got to see a few more. The only thing that would have done differently for this vacation was make it longer! We were gone for 6 days, and I was not ready to go. Next time, its 10 days minimum! 2 weeks would be better!
