Florida, Round 3

Another batch of pictures from our time in Florida! We’ve enjoyed a week of warmth and sun here, but we’re back to cool and rainy this weekend. So it’s the perfect time to look back at pictures of the warmth. 

Max wanted to make a list of things we would do that day, so he and Grandma Helen made one with boxes he could check off. He played with it for several days!
Max showing Grandpa and Grandma Helen how he can read the “Brand New Readers” books they got him for his birthday:
Helen had gathered an assortment of dress-up items for the kids. Of course they all had to be worn simultaneously.
Last year Max and Grandma Helen made homemade orange juice, and he was eager to do it again this year. We all enjoyed the results!
I love this one of Anna snuggling up with her Daddy.
A couple pictures from another day at the beach. Too cool and windy to swim, but still beautiful!
That’s Max and Grandpa walking and holding hands. So sweet.
Dad and Helen live close to the town of Bradenton, which has a great river walk with a really nice playground. We spent a sunny, windy morning there, the kids loved all the things to do on the playground!
For lunch we went to a little waterfront spot close to Dad and Helen’s house. They have fresh seafood and you can look out at a great view while you eat!
The kids loved watching the pelicans and seagulls.
The restaurant has a big wooden swing at the end of the dock. The kids and I enjoyed some time on it. I have no idea what I’m doing with my hand, but it’s otherwise a cute picture.
We love playing outside at their house. This year bubbles were a big hit with both kids, and Max loved “playing tennis” also.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a picture with Max without a round of silly faces!
