Our great FLORIDA adventure!

WOW! What a trip! Three kids - one van - 1200 miles (each way) - 12 days! Need I say more! Well, I will anyway!
We left on Friday afternoon the 8th and arrived in Orlando 18 hours later on Saturday morning. We spent the first part of our vacation with Grandpa Mike & Grandma Sheila at the condo! We did some swimming, some golfing, some playing and a little bit of relaxing!

We spent the afternoon and evening on Sunday at Downtown Disney to celebrate David's 7th birthday. We had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe and then David picked out a present at Legoland!

On Thursday we spent the day at the Magic Kingdom. Pop, Grandpa Mike & Grandma Sheila joined us and the boys, while Grandma Jane entertained Becca for the day back at the Villages.

It was David, Steven & Chris' first time at the Magic Kingdom. It was a REALLY fun day! We are glad that we waited until this year to take the boys, as they were just ready to appreciate it
and make it through the day!

Here we are on Dumbo. The boys two favorite rides were the Indy Cars and the Buzz Lightyear ride/game.

Steven & Grandpa Mike at the Philharmagic Show - the boys didn't look through the 3-D glasses for most of it, but the adults really liked it!

Here is the whole gang on the ferry headed back to the parking lot! It really was a beautiful and magical day!

We spent the last 1/2 of our trip with Pop and Grandma Jane at the Villages. We spent a day at Silver Springs, did some more swimming and golfing and went for rides in the golf cart!
A BIG thanks to both sets of grandparents for hosting our loud and rowdy crew!

We stopped in Atlanta on the way back to visit cousins and had lunch with friends in Lexington! It was a LONG drive home, but we made it and are getting back into our normal routines.

David's birthday - Part 1 & 2

Not sure why, but we always seem to be able to stretch everyone's birthday out and have multiple parties!

Friday night we had birthday dinner at Gup and Gams!
David still loves his Thomas trains (although I think it's a bit more about collecting at this point)
He also received the game Battleship! We've already played several times and he loves it!

Here are Becca and Claire (7 months)
Saturday night the Moreno clan came to our house - we celebrated Maximo's 10th, David's 7th and Che's 6th. Maximo brought over his new Wii and we all got to play!
The 3 birthday boys!
David got a Razor Scooter!

Mom & John are celebrating their 25th anniversary this month!
And here is what happened on Friday night right before we left for Gup and Gams house! Becca decided she needed to freshen up for the party! She's crying because I scolded her, but of course I had to get some pictures!
