Although I had all these great plans for taking some family photos at the beach, I barely even pulled my camera out while we were in Florida. The twins are a handful these days and it took both Andrew and me (as well as one of his parents) to really manage all three on our beach, sailing, and zoo outings. It was a blessing to have extra hands and actually enjoy life. Although I love my children dearly, I feel like I am so busy just meeting every persons basic needs during the day, that I don't always get to just watch how charming they all are. And they are all so sweet and precious.
|All 3 of us have birthdays next month. And Andrew and I will celebrating our ten year anniversary!|
|My sweet Audrey. She loved the zoo!|
|My sailor boy! Isn't he adorable? We never did put up our sail that day...too windy (at least it would have been too wild with little ones aboard)|
|Captain Ella (cannot believe she is about to turn 4!).|
We also welcomed a new family member while we were down there...a new nephew. I've already forgotten how tiny newborns are (and the twins were only a 1/3 the size of our nephew!! That is hard to believe). I think I need to volunteer to keep the newborns at church to get my little baby fill. Then I can snuggle them for a couple hours and send them home with their sleep deprived mothers while I go home and get my full nights rest.
So, that was our trip in a nutshell.
