Summer ...

We had a great week in Florida...
The kids spent most of their time in the pool. As much as I love the beach, it was unbearably hot and extremely we kept close to home. 

We swam...

Fished at the lake...

I read THREE great books...

Maggie read even more...

We enjoyed Big Daddy's Birthday gift...

and watched MollDoll take a spill on Big Daddy's Birthday gift...

We also...

Perfected our cannonball techniques...

Rode bikes...

Finished decorating the kitchen...

Bird watched...

And finally welcomed ourselves home...

And tried our best to find some humor in this...

It looks a little like the Chicago River on St. Patrick's Day!

It's good to be home.

  1. It looks as if you had a wonderful time in spite of the heat and got a lot accomplished.
    I'm sure you're glad to be home again.

  2. Great pics, it looks like you all had a great time... except for the surprise when you got home:@)

  3. Looks like a wonderful vacation!!!!

  4. Your vacations looks like it was great fun and you had good weather.
    Your pool at home looks like pea soup. When we had a pool, it got so bad one hot summer we said to heck with it and closed it for the winter - it was clear in the spring!

  5. I felt as though I sped through your holiday and then landed with a thump when I saw the green pool. I hope you get it all sorted out!

  6. Hi, fantastic photos of your vacation! Looks like you had a fabulous time! Thanks so much for sharing this. I hope that you have a wonderful new week!

  7. Super photos - wish I had taken more on our vacation. Looks fun!

  8. What a perfect definition of vacation... just yum!

    I loved the expressions on the rested faces and am writing down your book selections and check them out.

    Do you suggest any one in particular?

    Have a great week.


  9. And a good time was had by all! You're absolutely right - it's unbearably hot here!

  10. Looks like a neighborhood we once rented a vacation place. Lots of fun, though the alligator sign is a little off-putting. I guess it's supposed to be.

  11. Looks like you guys had a LOVELY time in FL!!! Hope you collected a "bung" of seashells for me hahahah
    -LOVE your #1 fan

  12. Wonderful photos, looks like a fun trip. And an awesome birthday gift for Big Daddy. Love the shot of the Snowy Egret in flight.
