Home Sweet Home!

We made it home! We had a great time in Florida with some great friends! We had 4 children under the age of 3...we are definitely crazy! But overall, all the kids were really good. Here's the final round of Florida pictures.

Here's Kimberly and I with our two leeches! Okay so they are much better then leeches, but it seemed like the whole trip we had these two glued to our hips!

Here's a close up of Lila Bean! That's her nickname! It stems from lima bean! Cute, huh?

Warning: No babies harmed during this photo shoot! This was our best attempt to get all four kiddos!
This was our last night and Lynlee and Emme finally decided they could really have fun together! Go figure? They weren't bad the whole week, they just had limited interaction!

Mommy and daughter!
Brother and sister! Again, no babies were harmed! He might have just consumed more sand than a normal almost 6 month old should have! We took about 10 pictures like this and ALL of the pictures Owen has this really worried look on his face! I can't seem to figure out why?

Our best family shot!
Lynlee absolutely loved the beach. She would play great in the sand and then run into the waves. This was a great age for the beach!

Times have definitely changed from a few years ago! I would just sit in a chair, read a magazine, play paddle ball with Pat, and occasionally cool off in the ocean! But not anymore! This time, I would go between playing in the sand to sitting under the umbrella to keep Owen out of the sun. You know what though? I wouldn't change it for the world. The boys would actually let Kimberly and I go lay out during nap time, but I got SO bored and found myself just wanting the kids back down there to play with me!

We are glad to be home, but can't wait to go back next year!
