Vacation Recap

Happy Monday my lovelies!  I'm homeeeee and back with a recap of our last two weeks of traveling.  Two weeks is a long time with a couple of kiddos!  I'm so grateful we get to take these awesome trips, but I can't lie, this mama gets tired!  A nice tan and happy babes makes up for it!  This is picture heavy (be warned!) but let's get to it...

I can't lie, nothing gives me more anxiety than flying alone with the kids.  They are pretty well behaved, but the idea of a meltdown and the fact that they seem to only speak at a volume of full blast along with a tendency to get into slapping fights makes me need a Xanax.  They were great though!

They spent a LOT of time playing together and getting along...

While Greyson hammed it up for me left and right...

Avery refused to let me take any pictures of her because she took daily swimming lessons and finally overcame her fear of the water and turned into a full blown fish.

I may have needed a daily cocktail.  Boo agreed with me.

 We went on an awesome dolphin-watching sunset boat ride which was a big highlight of our trip (after the tears dried.)

Avery woke up the first morning with her first loose tooth.  I almost burst into tears.  Why does time go so fast?

And I tried to get a good picture of me and the kiddos.  This was the best one.  Greyson was trying to throw himself out of my arms and pinching me.  Avery nailed it, though!

I tried to pack as lightly as possible and re-wore things - we were lucky enough to have a washer and dryer where we stayed.  Nobody needs to be packing ten suitcases and traveling with kids!

Have a happy 4th of July week!!
