Fun in the Sun

Since I'm working tomorrow and we're getting on a plane early Friday morning, I thought I'd better post these now since there will be no Photo Friday again. (I know, very lame, but what can you do? Us jet setters have to post when we can...)

Here's a few highlights of our trip down south last weekend. It's only a few of the 370 pictures we took in 3 days. I love that camera. You can tell pretty clearly that everyone had a good time. In fact, as soon as we got home, Padyn asked me, "When are we going to see Bella again?" Too bad she doesn't live closer. Although, then they might not like each other as much.

Padyn's favorite thing to do this trip was "swim" back and forth on the top step of the pool like a dolphin. Or, as she said, like a dolphin who talks.
Bella, who was afraid of the pool earlier in the year, was suddenly in love with the water. She could not get enough of Papa throwing her through the air. Padyn, on the other hand, would have none of that. That's funny, since she enjoyed the same activity in our pool last summer.I had been doing Padyn's hair (french braids...they looked really cool) and Kate was concerned that there were no barrettes in P's hair. That's what she's trying to give us.
There's a mirror that runs the length of the dining room wall at the condo. Kate thought it was the best toy in the place. Well, that and the remote to the really expensive TV.Kate managed not to tip herself over in the floatie this time. She was a bit hesitant about the water. She didn't want to get in at first due to it being cold on her little toesies. But if you eased her in slowly, she didn't seem to notice that suddenly she was submerged up to her waist.
Kate was really into taking her hat off and on. Of course, she didn't want to leave it on when she really needed it...
And the main reason for the trip....introducing Dr. Christie! What will she be doing next year, you ask? How about hanging out at home with her new baby BOY. (And Bella, of course.) Yes, one of us in our large family dominated by girls has managed to break the gender barrier and conceive a boy. That also deserves some congratulations, as well.
