We made it successfully to Orlando from Minneapolis on the way down. Pretty non eventful, actually! It is just hard because we have a three hour drive to get to the airport and then we had a three hour plane ride and then a two hour car ride to get to our final destination... Sarasota! It was all worth it when we woke up the next day to sun and warmth! It just takes major planning!
But back to our traveling blunders! So my mom dropped us off at the airport and we proceeded to unload the car... two suitcases to check, two carseats to check, a stroller, two diaper bags and two carry-ons, a cooler of milk to travel on the plane, blankets times four, my purse, oh yeah... and TWO children under the age of TWO... who are now capable of RUNNING in the airport! We got these great monkey backpacks that we used for them the whole time in the airport. They have little leashes on them and made it so I could go through security with them and then Caleb took all of our stuff! Besides forgetting our carseats and my mom having to rush back we made it in plenty of time and even had a pretty good flight. I would say even easier than last year!
So on to the trip in pictures... the boys LOVED playing in the sand this year! It was so fun to be down there with Angie and Lonnie and their kids again... Caleb's sister and her family. The kids all played together and it was so fun to spend time just relaxing!!

The really funny thing is that we didn't even pose them the same... or tell the boys to pick up the same baby. Crazy!
