Spring Break

This is the first year we’ve ever really done Spring Break.

(Partially because we’ve never had to wait for a particular week, but I digress…)

We spent time first with my nieces and I’m sure we took pictures, but for some reason, I couldn’t find any.  😦

Then we went to see Grandpa & Grandma2.

This is where they live.

And so got to go out and do this.

All the older kids loved it.  Super Man got to take a nap.

One day, Handsome Hubby took some time to take the older ones canoeing.  They loved that too!

Since we were in Florida, they said to be careful of Alligators.

They didn’t see any.

I was disappointed.

Sort of.

I think I have this shot with every child.

Super Man love, love, loves water!

Handsome Hubby sat down with him near the waves while they played in the water.  He went to move him from a large wave and he had a fit!

There was a rip tide warning that day, so the kids didn’t get to go swimming in the ocean.  We warned them not to go too far in and for the most part had fun running in and out of the waves as they came on shore.  E-Man, however, decided to see just how close to the line he could get.  A big wave knocked him over and went over top of him.  He stayed closer after that.

We did get to go swimming in the marina swimming pool.

I love this shot because it says so much about this trip to the pool.  Super Man loved the pool and playing in the water, no matter where Handsome Hubby took him.  Princess practiced her swimming and played with Grandpa.  C.J. was all over the place.  And E-Man, probably because of earlier getting dunked by the wave, was afraid to go any further than the steps and have his head go under the water, even with the life jacket & pool noodle.  Handsome Hubby would hold him, life jacket and all, and take him no more than two feet from the stairs and he’d start screaming.  So we didn’t push it this trip.

We love you Grandpa & Grandma2!

May God bless your socks off as He has ours!
