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!
