Two weeks ago we went down to Florida for our annual spring break with my parents. My parents, now retired, are staying down there for a little over a month so we went and visited and stayed with them. Here's a few pictures (mostly of Anderson) from our trip. (And if you're my Instagram friend, you've seen most of these.)
The day we flew down to Florida was Anderson's 4th birthday. We had gotten up at 4:00am and the little dude did not take a nap all day. He was nearly asleep as we lit up his cupcake.
Looks like he still enjoyed his cupcake, though.
Our family friend who lives in the area got Anderson a kite for his birthday. He loved it!
This is probably my favorite pictures from the trip. I made this my lock screen on my phone.
Sunset at the beach.
Oh yeah. I was on this trip too.
Immediately after he got to the park he tripped over the root and landed on his face. Hence, the dirt on his face.
These are out of order. On the way home, the captain invited Anderson into the cockpit, let him sit in his seat, and even wear his hat. Um, I was jealous.
It wasn't all beach (although it mostly was). One morning Anderson enjoyed running through the fountains in the middle of Venice.
My sister is down there this week and my parents come home in a few weeks. I have done this trip every year for as long as I can remember. It's fun, although with a toddler now, it is a lot of work. There's no more taking a nap on the beach. Next year we will probably not get to go since we will be going to Boston for the marathon. It's time for a change, though. Maybe the break's not such a bad thing. Either way, anything has got to be better than winter in Ohio. Happy spring!!!
