Florida 2009

We just returned from spending a week at Nana's and Papa's house in Florida! We all had a great time. The kids did really well traveling and had no problem feeling right at home there. Our week was busy, and I took literally hundreds of photos, but here is a quick rundown of some of the highlights:

*Plane Rides! Both kids did great. Caleb really liked being able to sit in his big boy seat with his big boy seatbelt. He also loved hearing all about how a plane works, and expressed special interest in the wheels of the plane. Meredith was a superstar and only had a few "fussy moments" which were short-lived, thankfully!

*Gardening with Papa! Caleb loved to be out in Papa's garden, "helping" him with things. He got to sweep and even planted a bulb!

*Meredith Turned 3 Months Old! It's always fun to share even these little milestones with the Johnson Grandparents, since we don't get to see them often.

*The Zoo! We got to ride on a train and see some very cool animals. Favorites were the big cats, the porcupines, monkeys and lemurs.

*Playing with Nana and Papa! Both kids enjoyed reading with, playing with, and laughing with their grandparents.

*Being Outside! It was nice to just be outside....we took walks, played at the park, fed ducks, and dug in the dirt.

*The Beach! We were able to spend one day at the beach. We all enjoyed the time there.... Caleb had an absolute blast. He got to dig in the sand, and walk in the waves. He was positively giddy about the waves crashing into him. It was great!

Like I said, I took over 300 photos throughout the are a few...

Nana and Papa made us feel right at home the entire time we were there. They had lots of toys for Caleb and Meredith, cozy beds for all of us, and Nana spent lots of time in the kitchen making sure we were all very well fed!

Thanks, Nana and Papa, for a great visit. We hope to see you again soon.

Love you!
