The Rest of Florida!

 We went to Pickles for lunch...

 We rode go-carts....like $60 worth of go -carts!
Parker got to drive on this track by himself.  We have a picture of Steven at this age, at a track like this, too!


 We rode some swings...

 We watched more go-carts!
 We went swimming in the pool at our rental house!

 We took several walks down to the beach.  It was a perfect distance away with a side-walk leading to it.  Perfect for the kids/stroller.


 We went to the Air Force Museum...
 and saw several cool airplanes!

 And several cool guns...

 We played putt-putt...


 We went to the water park...
(I think Easton looks funny in this picture)
 Of course the only day the water park was open, it was only 78 outside.  It made for a little bit of a cold day, but well worth the memories!  The boys didn't mind the weather.

 Parker went on all of the slides he met the height requirements for. 
 We took rest breaks!
Even little Easton tackled a few slides! 

We really had such a fun trip!  It is sad that it is over.  We were just saying last night how much we would enjoy a walk on the beach or a lunch at Pickles.  The boys saw these pictures and begged us to take them to play putt-putt golf.  I think another great thing about going on vacation early in the season is that it has motivated me to keep up the fun all summer long!  So...we will definitely plan many putt-putt excursions, zoo trips, maybe some camping...who knows!  But-I am planning on some fun-filled days with all of my boys!  And...we will end the summer in the best way...by meeting little brother Brooks!

Beach Days!



Let me say, I am a little surprised at just how much the boys enjoyed the beach!  I knew they would have fun, but it seemed like they couldn't get enough!  My Mom and I woke up and started almost every day with a cup of coffee on the beach while the boys played.



And when I say boys...that means all of the boys.  My Mom and I mostly sat and watched.  My Mom sat because she couldn't get out of the chair without falling, (a sign of her age we joked), and I sat because...well...I'm almost 7 months pregnant!  :)


I really am joking...we all made several trips down the shore and even spent some time building sandcastles.  Of course...we all took turns chasing the kids!  I really was super happy with the fact that I got to spend some time relaxing.  Not that Easton or Parker gave my parents much choice...they preferred playing with them over me...and I welcomed the peace!  If my Dad or Mom sat down, Easton would say, "Papa!  Come on!", would grab him by the hand and take him where he wanted to go.

 Easton's only regret was that we didn't go to a nude beach. He did all he could to be naked. We at least were able to keep a swim diaper on him most of the time. He came home with a speedo tan line!

If we didn't start the day at the beach, we ended it there!  Here are some other fun random pictures from our fun-filled beach days!  And...notice how pretty the color of the water was!
