Florida P5: Let the Sun Shine in

From April 28th….

Monday was more of the same for us – sleeping in, being lazy, pool and beach.  The morning started bright and sunny and then a weird fog/haze poured in.  Lilli and I walked down to the beach just to see if it was too windy to go down.  By the time we got down there the haze cleared out and it was our best weather day the entire trip.

Waving at all the birds.  On this trip she really started discovering birds and getting excited about them.   IMG_4776

Sisters in the matching swimsuits I got off of Zulily.  Abbi is a little stuffed into hers.

Lilli and I spent some time trying to catch some things with our nets. IMG_4723                                       I taught her how to catch some crabs and she was so excited to do that.  She doesn’t mind a strange animal. IMG_4707

We spent the morning at the beach and headed back to our house for lunch and Abbi’s nap.  We had a great rest time just relaxing in the pool and enjoying the sunshine and being lazy.

Sister pictures were not successful. IMG_0042

Brent had promised to take Lilli crab hunting, so this night they went back down to the beach after dinner and chased crabs with flashlights.  She had a blast and we were VERY glad they did it that day since we were about to be in some of the craziest storms we’ve EVER experienced! IMG_5864
