We traveled back to Florida on March 20th and Scott was able to come with us this time around. Elli was so excited about going back and was especially looking forward to the plane ride. Our kids definitely know how to fly and did great once again on the flight there and on the way home.
We made it to Florida around 7:40 on Tuesday and arrived at the condo a little after 9:00. Luckily, the kids feel asleep on the drive to the condo and didn't have too much trouble getting back to sleep once we arrived. We crammed a lot into 1 week!
Our first day, the girls, Scott, and Dad spent a little bit of the morning at the park and beach. We then spent the majority of the day at the pool. We couldn't get Elli to put her floaties on during our first trip to Florida a couple weeks ago, but we were successful this trip. And when the floaties were on, she wanted to swim by herself!
After a day of swimming, we went to St. Armands Circle for a little eating, shopping, and ice cream.

On Thursday, Scott flew out early in the morning to Arizona for work. He spent the whole day in Arizona and took a red-eye that night back to Florida. He made it back to the condo by 8:00 on Friday morning!
While Scott was working, we were playing in the condo....
at the beach....
and at the park....
Mom and Dad watched the kids for Amber, Jeremy, and I while we made a quick trip to the outlets.
Friday was spent primarily at the beach!
This little girl loves playing with her bucket in water and sand.

Everyone except me playing in the pool! Check out Amber's sweet pose. Ha!
At lunch, Amber, Jeremy, Scott and I went to 'The Hub' for lunch! We spent the rest of the time at the pool. Amber, Jeremy, Kensley, and Avery headed home later that evening.
Saturday was spent at the beach....
And then we went to dinner later that night...
Enjoying the 'fake' animals while we waited to be seated!
I wasn't very lucky in getting a good picture of both kiddos together on this alligator!
After dinner, Dad volunteered to put both kids to bed so Mom, Scott and I could go to the outlets! According to him, bedtime was a success! He was very brave for doing that!!
Sunday was spent at the beach and later that night we attended the drum ceremony! This time, Elli participated and did a little dancing. She is still talking about the drum ceremony and will often dance around like the girls at the drum ceremony!
Some girl gave her shakers....
Sunday was packed full with feeding the birds....
Hanging out on the beach....
Flying a kite (what a big girl!)
Taking many, many pictures (I did a photo shoot on the beach at sunset....I took tons of pictures which I'll post later)
And playing on the beach....
I will post more picture of our 'photo shoot' on the beach later!
