We woke early (the mom & dad were up VERY early) and quickly got ready to leave. Mia was screeching with excitment, she could hardly control was adorable :) Poor Penny looked on as we got the suitcases together ~ oh, it was so sad. She will be taken care of by two very loving and wonderful people, but we all miss each other so much.

O.k., on to happy things ~ look at this view:

Our flight was a bit bumpy at take off, but it soon calmed down thank goodness ( I was a little nervous!) Anthony and Eddie sat together across from us and they did great - my boys are growing up ~ Mia did really well too and she just got a bit antsy towards the last 1/2 hour ~

my big boys

We've landed in Florida, but had to wait around a bit...
they lost Mia's car seat!!! They gave us a loaner until they
can (hopefully) figure out where her carseat is!

We are taking it easy today by the pool.
They have these great kid-friendly pools and they did not want to get out!

It is in the high 70's here - just beautiful~

Daddy got the kids these great tropical drinks.
We sat by the water and listened to waterfalls while sipping away ~

Aaaaaa, life is good :)
Daddy took Eddie and Mia to the playground around the bend
and Anthony and I had some great alone time. We laughed and talked and rocked in this big comfy swing ~ we had to force ourselves to get up and find the rest of our bunch :)
We are off to dinner and tomorrow we will meet up with the "C" family to go to Busch Gardens! I haven't been since I was a kid and we are all looking forward to our day :)
