We have been blessed with a great trip to Florida this year. Grandma and Grandpa have provided us with lots of fun. That along with playdates and parties have kept us incredibly busy. So busy, in fact, that we have postponed our return trip by a day so we can actually get prepared instead of just throwing our stuff in the van and taking off.
Of course there's been lots of pool time.
And Grandpa and Kirk took the kids to the beach (because I wasn't feeling so well that day)
The girls actually fell asleep on the beach after playing in the water and the sand!
Kirk's birthday - we had a chance to celebrate with family and friends:
Saying goodbye to Daddy is ALWAYS hard!
Father's Day at Church:
Last Saturday we visited Celebration Station (thanks Grandpa and Grandpa we had a GREAT time!!)
The girls on the little roller coaster - they loved it!
Bumper boats - it was pretty hot so I was asking the kids to spray me while I watched them :)
Kaitlyn got to drive her own go-kart and apparantly she had a lead foot :)
Grandpa and Caleb had to ride together but I still think they had fun!
Mini-golfing. Watching the girls "golf" is a riot. Mostly it involves them slowly shoving the ball into the hole :)
They needed a lot of help from Grandpa!
And since the big kids were so much quicker (Caleb even got a hole in one!) Grandma got to go on ahead.
Alyssa was pretty sick of pictues so she was done smiling by this point.
We're done! Happy, tired and HOT!
And today, an awesome Star Wars birthday party!
My Jedi knights:
Fun, balloon popping game - Kaitlyn won :)
And then we were visited by Storm Troopers!
Kaitlyn seems quite comfortable holding that gun...
Alyssa's got it a little backwards:
But Julianna has no problem with it.
Rachel need convincing to even get near the Troopers - sister love to the rescue!
Now Caleb, on the other hand, got a little different treatment... Hmmm... I did tell him I never want to see this again :)
We had a really good trip to Florida this year and we will miss our family and friends as we return home to Virginia.
Wow, we had a LOT of fun and it's soo hard to believe that our vacation is already over. Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa for everything! We will miss you sooo much and can't wait to see you again soon. Love you!
Goodbye Florida, we'll see you soon...
Happy Thanksgiving from the Chases!
