Summer Vacation 2011 - Part 2

I am sorry for the delay. Here are some more photos from our trip.

We were so glad to spend time with Dan, Erin, Garrison, and Stella. Here is Mark in the pool with Cael, Emmett, and Garrison.

Garrison had so many Buzz Lightyear toys so Cael was in heaven!
These guys had a lot of fun!

Awh! The Binky babies Emmett and Stella.

Kim and Ron through another awesome birthday party for Cael:

Cael was beaming with everyone singing 'happy birthday' to him.

Ron was anything but a short order chef! We had oysters along with burgers and hot dogs.

It is great when family can get together! We need to do it more often!

We also went to Silver Springs with Kim and Ron. We saw lots of birds and gators.

Unfortunately our day was cut short by the weather. The time we spent there was fun though.

Cael had such a good time playing with his cousins, even the non-blood related variety. Here is a picture of Garrison, Cael, Maylee, and Isaac.

Good food at a family get together is a must!!! mmmm-mmmmm! I love me some country ribs!

Isn't this the cutest picture! Left to right: Maylee, Max, Isaac, Emmett, and Cael

And another one!

The boys love their Dziedze!

Even in the pool Emmett wanted to snuggle is mommy.

It took Cael a while to warm up to the water. Then all of a sudden he was brave and wanted to jump into the pool.

Thank you Kim and Ron for having us and throwing another great party. We appreciate all you do for us. The boys, Mark, and I miss you both immensely.

Thank you Mom and Dad! I miss you guys so much! I wish we lived closer. Thank you for everything!

Talk to you all soon!

Love you!

Summer vacation 2011 - Part 1

My family and I just returned from a wonderful vacation to Florida. It was so nice to be together for 2 full weeks as an immediate family, with no work, and to see our extended family. We split up our time with Mark's parents in Macclenny and my parents in Jacksonville. My sister Jenilee is just 45 minutes away in Georgia and my brother and his family came down from Atlanta. We had so much fun!

I have TONS of pictures so I will post some today and then will post more in the next couple of days.

As you can see from the new family photo at the top of my blog we had pictures made. My mom asked a friend from church to take our pictures while we were all together. Some came out really cute!

Ah, siblings! Kevin, Jenilee, and I having a blast!

Kevin and Jennie have a beautiful family. Isaac is 5.5yrs old, Max will be 1 yr soon, and Maylee will be 4 soon. My how time flies!

The entire Zywot clan! Jenilee held a picture of her husband Joe as he is out on deployment - an active serviceman in the US Navy. We missed you Joe!

Emmett loved his first time at the beach. He acted very different than Cael did the first time.

Cael had fun playing with his cousins, looking for seashells, and riding the boogie board on some waves!
Mommy just enjoyed relaxing and watching the boys play.
