|Some of my all-time besties. I love these ladies.|
|Pool time. (it was a little chilly)|
|E. finds a turtle in the pool!|
|I really loved these shots.|
|My boys were a little obsessed with this game while we were there. These two were so cute working together.|
|Movie time. (Read: Time when the big people get to actually talk.) :)|
|Elliot inspired a little spontaneous swing time when he saw a rope hanging (pretty high) from the tree in the backyard.|
|Brave E. likes that idea.|
|Hayden takes a turn.|
Later that week, we went back down to Boca Raton to meet up with Blair's mom, brother and two grandmas. Also, some of my favorite people in the world.
|Grandma Jayme had some sweet cuddle time with baby Gil. :)|
|Uncle Jake! Sorry, the only good pic we got was mid-chew. He took a break from his tennis to hang out with the kids. They loved him!|
|Hanging by the pool.|
|Sweet Great Grandma Shirley. (These ladies do NOT look like grandmas and great-grandmas! Really!) She had some special time with the little ones as well. I love this lady!|
|And a little nod to my alma mater, while passing by.|
This may have been the first time, since moving away that I actually really enjoyed Florida, in a sense. Because I feel so removed, I was able to look past the commercialism and consumerism (and, uh, even partake a tiny bit) and enjoy the broad, wide open skies. The horizon line. Something we don't have in the mountains. I found myself stopping all the time and just taking in the landscape. It was lovely. And that brings me to the beach, the next post in my series....stay tuned!
