Florida Fun

A couple of weeks ago my parents generously took our family along with the Hoovers to Florida for some family fun! We had a blast and we made great memories with everybody. We played on the beach, swam in the pool, relaxed in the hot tub, took naps, collected seashells, built sand castles, had a scavenger hunt, flew kites, jumped the waves, played cards, and of course ate our fair share of food. Here are some pictures from the week in no particular order:

All of the boys love Claire! They gave her lots of attention throughout the week.

Family Picture- the best we could get with 3 kiddos! Of course we waited until the last day to take pictures and it rained so we weren't able to take pictures on the beach like we had planned.

The house we stayed in was awesome. It was three stories and had an elevator. Here are all the boys taking a ride down on our way to the beach.

Love this picture of Claire and me. I never seem to make it in any of the pictures so I'm glad we got one together.

The awesome house we stayed in right across from the beach.

Will LOVES baby Claire and wanted to hold her on several occasions and paid special attention to her all week. He is so sweet to his baby cousin.

The boys got a taste of what it's like to grease up a hairy, sweaty man with sunscreen. The girls were out shopping and my dad caught the boys lathering each other up. Classic!

All the guys relaxing in the hot tub. Ha!

Luke is too cool for school in his shades.

I love this picture of Papa after being buried in the sand.

Will being buried on the beach. You can almost hear the giggles.

Thanks Gram and Papa for a wonderful vacation!
