Hey Everybody! We thought we would post some pictures of our recent trip to Florida. We had an awesome time! Our house was right on the beach, literally right outside our door. We’re all beach bums in this family. 🙂
This picture was taken when we were stuck in traffic in the middle of a city and our vehicle was overheating because we were carrying a heavy trailer full of all our stuff, so we had to roll down the windows and turn on the heat to cool down the engine. 🙂 If was really fun. Well OK, not so fun but it makes for some good memories! 🙂
This is the view from our back porch!

This is Jake and Bethany’s adorable dog, Sophie. She looks like she’s really concentrating on something in this picture! She wouldn’t get in the water for the first five days or so. Every time Bethany would take her near, she would run away as the waves came in, and then chase them out. 🙂 One day though, Alex and Elia took Abby down to the water and Sophie finally got up her courage up and followed Abby into the water and took to frolicking with her in the waves. 🙂
Abby, dripping wet from a dip in the ocean. She loved it!
I think we used like fifteen bottles of sun screen! No joke! A few of us still got burnt.

Naomi’s magnificent sand castle.
We ate pretty much every single meal out on the porch. We had to set up another table to have room for our whole clan.
Naomi got buried one day. Don’t worry, we unearthed her. Eventually.
Jake pulling her out.
Gracie got some really pretty pictures of the beach and water.
Just for family pictures, we bought a tripod before we left. Grace and I had some fun taking some neat pictures.
We were pretty much either taking naps on the beach or in the water all week.
We made a visit to claire’s one evening after dinner out. Don’t worry Daddy didn’t buy these. We made sure. 🙂
