Beach, beach and more beach

Now that we are “home” in our home away from home in Florida, we are loving life in the slow lane!

The kids caught a frog and a lizard shortly after we got here.

Four rooms in this house and the boys still insist on sharing a room. We had to borrow one of the mattresses from another room to lay on the floor in here for Isaac. It has worked out beautifully for Lotus’ naps having a mattress on the floor.

I wish the true size of this orange setting sun would show up through my camera. It was GIGANTIC, unlike the pin-sized thing you see here.

Simon is catching some air in his mouth. We spotted some dolphins on the ride back.

Isaac found this giant “fan” shell, also called “pen shell” still inhabited. We snapped a pic and then he placed it back in the water.

We’ve also gone to Howard Park beach (twice) and Busch Gardens amusement park but I left my camera at home those days. Only five days into our three week stay here and it has been wonderful! I really could live here and go to the beach regularly. The warm salt water is so relaxing:)

    I’m thinking you are always living life in the slow lane….but now you are in the slow lane in Florida….No? just sayin…it looks like you are having a wonderful time!

    That’s true, Mom. It’s a hard job but somebody has to do it. 🙂

    Looks wonderful. Florida is definitely on the plan for our East coast extravaganza (hopefully next year?) My kids will go nuts over the shells alone!

    You will love it, Kristin! Critters to catch, parrots up on the roof, shells and fish, lightning and thunder that make us jump. All fun stuff for the kids (and us). Miss you guys!
