Some highlights of our week:
~not having to cook every night - Shelley and I alternated cooking for the clan
~everyone living in their swimsuits all week. I seriously packed way too much...
~Avila went intertubing for the first time! (with daddy along for the ride, of course)
~watching Avila and Thomas have a blast together. They are two peas in a pod.
~Grandma and Grandpa getting to spoil their little ones...with lots and lots of hugs, kisses, and candy
~seeing daddy get to play and play with his kids. I LOVE watching them together
~Max sleeping just about all the time. After a week prior of only sleeping on me, I took the time during vacation to work with Max in getting him to fall asleep and stay asleep on his own. I learned some tricks about him and the fruits of my labor definitely payed off. One night he slept 12 hours without a feeding, ate, and then slept 3 more before I finally woke him. You go Max!
Here are some pictures from our trip:
Avila's morning "parfait" made by daddy
Grandma and Max
I bet boaters though we were the "fun house" given we had every inflatable toy imaginable strewn all over the yard
Avila's afternoons were spent floating in her own private pool
the "Relaxation Station." We ended up floating this in the water for a while - an awesome way to cool off
Avila couldn't get enough of the boat
uh oh, cousin!
don't bite the hand that feeds you, Thomas. oh wait, you did!
Grandpa and Max - who wouldn't be chill while someone rubbed your tummy?
picking flowers so she can marry daddy
before her first intertube ride!
