florida vacation

In mid July David and I were able to fly down to Florida to visit with his brother, sister-in-law, and their littles. Each year around the fourth of July we make our trek down for a long weekend of fun and sun. This year we met our newest little nephew only 14 days old. When we arrived a tropical storm was trailing us, promising to keep us indoors during the visit.  Somehow though, it broke up allowing us all to enjoy the outdoors. We had a picnic at the beach at sunset, went to a cookout in a local park to honor the Navy Reserve, took walks around the block, had a massive water balloon fight, and just soaked up as much time together as possible. It is always so hard to leave on Monday.  I wish I could pick up Florida and place it right next to Massachusetts so that we are only a short drive from one another.

Setting up our camp site. We packed blankets & fried chicken and sat in the sand between sea turtle nests.

The little guy woke up right before it was time to head home. First visit to the beach at just a few days old not to shabby.

A little family portrait?  Gosh do I want us to start a family. Holding little boy really made that desire apparent. Maybe someday…

While we were there, I was reintroduced to ramen noodles and fell in love with that salty, noodle soup
