Summer Vacation!

Our summer vacation this year landed us in Sanibel Island, Florida.
We always try to go to the west coast of Florida because the Gulf of Mexico is our favorite.  
We rented a condo in Orlando first for a couple of days and had planned on going to Blizzard Beach, but Nicholas broke his wrist right before we were leaving for the trip.  He fell off of his bike at the end of our driveway.  We thought it wasn't broken because he could move his wrist.  But, we noticed when we got to FL that he was still constantly holding it.  So, to be safe we brought him to the doctor.  The doctor felt it wasn't broken as well, but we insisted upon an xray.  He still didn't see anything, but sent it to a specialist.  The next morning (the day we were going to go to Blizzard Beach) the doctor called to say it was indeed broken. He had a buckle fracture.  It wouldn't require a cast.  He wears a brace.  It's pretty funny, he complained about wearing the brace, saying only old people wore them.  We disagreed, but promptly saw an elderly gentleman wearing them on each wrist.  It gave us good excuse to tease him the rest  of the trip calling him "Nana" and "PopPop".
We still had a good time in Orlando.  Our condo was beautiful and the resort had nice amenities. 
After we checked out of there, we headed down south to Sanibel.
I don't know what was going on, but it was so busy there!
I guess we are so used to vacationing right when school is starting so the beaches are usually very quiet.  Not this time!
We still had a great time.
  We made lots of new friends.
 The boys had lots of kids to play with and made a wonderful friend from NJ that I they want to keep in touch with.
All in all, it was a good vacation.  
 We had warm weather and water and most importantly time together.

I love my family.

Sweets loves the water!

My handsome boy.

My sensitive, sweet little Joe.
I love you so much!

I wish time could stand still.
I am enjoying her so much.

The boys and their new friend, Brady.

I think this is one of my absolute favorite pictures...ever.

This trip really made me see how fast time flies.  I remember bringing the boys to these beaches when they were little toddlers.
I really savor these moments.
They are growing into such wonderful young men and I couldn't be more proud.

Our family.
