DISNEY WORLD - Thanks for having a Birthday T!

What a great day at Disney!!  It wasn't in our original plans to hit Disney this time around (with the Beach trip and so many other fun things in between).  But since we ended up staying longer and we had to celebrate Tanner's birthday in style, we decided to go.  We started the day off at Animal Kingdom (one of the most fun Parks for kids) and then worked our way over to Magic Kingdom.  The pics are in totally random order, but they speak for a very fun day.  Happy 17th Tanner!!!

The Serpentarium

A real St. Cloud, Florida Jem.  This place is home to an array of reptiles including lot's of snakes and alligators... oh, and the venomous snakes are milked daily, so you definitely don't want to miss that!  And, on a side note, if a man with only a stub for his pointer finger tells you not to poke your fingers through the holes in the gates... YOU LISTEN!!  It was fun :)

New Jammies for my bronzed boys!

We're Staying... where to start!

I guess with a morning of yard work... we had to earn our keep somehow!!!  We had fun at a neighbors pool later that day.  Gotta keep cool in that Florida sun!

Aunt Ash's cookies... they are the very best.

We could not keep this little boy away from the water cooler... that and the stairs!

This is going to be a HUGE picture post, so get ready!!! We got to Florida August 1st (a few days earlier than originally planned, to the surprise of the fam). 13 days later the fun has not stopped... and we even got to extend. The boys were just enjoying themselves so much that Blake thought it would be fun if I stayed a week more and then flew back. So here we are having a great time, with lot's of pictures to prove it!!! First and foremost it was so much fun to see Tiff and little (or should I say big) Benton. They flew in from London as a last trip before they move to Dubai in Sept. So that alone was a treat. The rest of the family was here (minus Tay on his mission) and it has been a whirlwind of good times, including: lot's of lake front time. Braden has become quite the little fish. He puts his life jacket on and is off to float or fish. He loves the tube and jet ski and we've had a lot of fun with that. Another enjoyable lake front activity - feeding the family of ducks. I'll explain the rest of the week with the pics below.

"Dock Day" who knows when the work on the dock will ever end!!

Ashlee's arrival. We thought it would be really fun/funny to make a big deal of Ash getting in, since she was the last. We had signs, balloons, the works!

This was the best we could get of all three...

AHMA's Boys!!! Gavin has especially taking a liking to Ahma... in fact, he won't really go to anyone else anymore.

Bowling night!

Airboat ride on the church ranch - the most amazing thing - if you're ever in Florida, this is a must!

This starts the "beach trip" pictures. We headed down to Cocoa Beach Mon-Wed. of our first week and had so much fun in the sun. We stayed at a great little resort on the beach w/ pools (even a pirate ship kiddie play pool), tennis, playground, pier, etc... The best of course was the beach water... just like a huge, sandy bath!

Just a quick shout out for the double Maclaren stoller... this thing is awesome and has been a life saver ont his trip! I've had it for about 6 months, but used it more in the last 2 weeks than I've used it since I've had it. The two babies were ALWAYS in this and we've been taking some major walks... it was perfect and is really the BEST stroller around!!

My parents neighboor "maddie" makes a great horse! Braden has some really fun friends here in their neighborhood in FL...that makes it hard to leave too.

I guess Grandpa makes a good horse too!

Check out the hottie... Guys... she is single and quite the catch!!!

We had big photo shoot at the beach. I can't post any of the whole family (Mom's saving it for Christmas) but it they turned out pretty cute. Here's a couple of our family...

cute boys!
