My parents rented a house in Florida this past week and asked us if we would like to join them!  Getting away from the Minnesota cold and February germs was amazing!!!  And, the weather could not have been more perfect - sunny and warm every day!  Here is a photo journal of our trip:


At the airport
Ready for takeoff!

The kids were awesome travelers!  Easiest flight yet with the kiddos - P and I actually got to sit by each other!

Cousin Teddy did great too!  His genius parents have headphones to block out the noise so Teddy got a good nap!

Big boy! 

Waiting for our car at the rental place

Making our own fun while we wait
My parents rented a massive 12 passenger van to cart us all around in :)  This is it parked in front of the house they rented.
Larkyn and Colton shared a bedroom, and it was sooo sweet to spy moments between them, such as this one where I walked into Colton combing Larkyn's hair one morning :)

Summer enjoyed having her own room of peace and quiet to read ;)


We headed to Kristin's friend Joni and Luke's church for church on Sunday morning

We came back to the pool for swimming

We went out for dinner


We walked to the beach on Monday, which was maybe a half mile from our house.
Family Pic :)
We made sandcastles and played in the waves

We had lunch on the beach

Teddy and Summer :)
Teddy and Me :)


After a pool morning, we went mini golfing after the little kids' naps

Teddy on Eric's back made us all laugh!

The kids loved their nightly story time with Grandpa, where he continued his never ending adventure story incorporating many of the kids stuffed friends into his story line.


We had fun going to Naples Zoo!


On Thursday we went to a local splash pad and playground

My mom got matching T-shirts for everyone - I think our traditional family pictures turned out really cute!

At dinner with Kristin's friends Joni and Luke, who were also our photographers


We headed to a beach near where Luke's family lives and borrowed their paddle boards - they were SO fun!

Grandma's four grandkiddos ready for bed!


Daddy often did breakfast with the kiddos (here they were having fun doing madlibs with Uncle Eric) while Grandpa and I got out for morning beach runs (so fun!).

We drove 90 minutes to meet my cousin and her family in a middle spot from their house at a restaurant on the beach.  The plan was to go to a waterpark after, however once we got there we found out the waterpark was closed for the season!

After lunch,  we headed to a local park and ended up having a great time despite the change in plans :)

The kids all got a long great! 

We walked to a local ice cream shop- yum!


We headed to the airport for our flight home

The kids reading their airplane magazines and safety cards haha!

Paul and I couldn't help laugh at Larkyn watching Finding Nemo - leaning forward, totally in the zone, and intent on what would happen next.   I wish I had a better picture of her face!

Silly Pic!
It was an amazing trip!  We had so much fun, great family time, and awesome weather.  It was such a great get-a-way.  Thank you for your generosity Grandma and Grandpa K!
