Florida Roundup

This past weekend my parents and the kids and I headed away from the cold and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine of Florida (even though I heard that GA had pretty nice weather). Unfortunately Josh wasn't able to make it. Even though he asked for the weekend off months ago, it wasn't granted. Boo. We made the best of it... he assured me he'd be ok, and I needed a few days to clear my head.

We had a rough start. Emmie had been coughing for about a week, and when I actually decided that we would be making the trip I realized I should probably take her to the pediatrician to avoid an urgent care visit there. The Dr. said that her lungs sounded horrible (wheezing) and put her on steroids (YAY!) and an inhaler. She had the inhaler last time, but I wasn't sure about the dosage this time. Overall I'm glad we went but steroids made for a psycho baby those first few days. 

She was fascinated by the sand. She really had never been in sand (maybe once last summer at our lake) but she is now definitely a fan!
 This pretty much sums up their relationship. I heart it big time.


 We spent hours on the sand and while the wind made it a little chilly, the sun felt amazing!
 MLK day we went to Kennedy Space Center. I had been as a kid, but it was fun seeing it as an adult. Luke really enjoyed it. He liked seeing "those big rockets".
 We got an up close view at the crawler (that would take the shuttles to their launch pad at an astounding 1 MPH).
 And launch pad 39A.
I didn't get a great picture of it, but they actually had a launch Tuesday so we were able to see that rocket on it's launch pad. Dad got to see it go up from our condo balcony.

The kids were amazed at the size of these apollo shuttles.
 The morning we left, we played a round of miniature golf. Let's just say that I can blame this picture of the crazy steroids. Poor baby. Oh and she was cutting 4 teeth too.
 Little man was super brave and held a baby alligator. It was really cute!
 He also held a...

I gave you plenty of warning...

I just... there aren't words. I am terrified of snakes. Like skin crawling, nauseated scared. So for him to hold wear a 6.5 foot boa that weighed more than he did... I'm amazed.
Overall it was great to get out of town for a few days. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. And while I don't WANT to get back into a routine, I know we always function better when we have a routine.

And this face makes the sleepless nights with a teething, coughing baby totally worth it!
