The Beach!

We are on vacation! Our trip down to Florida was uneventful. All three kids were good travelers; Cara only fussed for a few minutes on the flight and slept for about an hour. We lucked out and the flight wasn't full so they let us bring Cara's carseat on the flight even though she was a lap child.

Our condo is amazing! It is perfect for us. Everyone has their own room and their own space. We are a 5 min walk to the beach (and 4 minutes from McDonalds. Hello, Diet Coke!) and our balcony overlooks the complex's swimming pool.

Yesterday was our first full day here. Chris took Ian and Lila to the beach in the morning while I stayed at the condo to pack everyone's lunch while Cara napped. When Cara woke up she and I headed down to the beach. This picture is from the 2 min she was happy on the beach yesterday. Let's just say she wasn't a fan and she and I headed back to the condo a short time later. We did take her in the swimming pool after her afternoon nap though and she liked that much better.

Lila, on the other hand, loves the beach! She kept wishing us a Happy Vacation on Tuesday night. Yesterday she woke up early but agreed to go back to bed for awhile as long as she could wear her sunglasses! She is having a great time!

Ian is also having fun. Here he is doing his favorite beach activity, burying himself in the sand.

I told them to smile and they did. Just not at me.

Today was a much better day for Cara at the beach. She went in the water for awhile, played in the tent for awhile and sat and ate Cheerios on my lap for awhile. All with minimal crying!
